What to consider when buying a mobile phone on Black Friday

iOS or Android?

You've probably already made up your mind on which side of the Android/iOS fence you sit, but it's still worth considering both as you shop for a new phone this Black Friday. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages, with the closed ecosystem of iOS typically offering a slicker and more stable experience while Android opens up a wealth of customisation options for those who prefer greater control over their phone's behaviour.

Moreso than in years past, Android and iOS have converged on a relatively similar look and feel. Switching from one to the other is no longer quite so jarring, and there are even some Android phones such as those from Oppo that take liberal cues from iOS to deliver an iPhone-like experience on Android.

Software support

A lot of older phones go on sale during Black Friday, and while they're often plenty powerful enough to handle the needs of modern smartphone users, their age can impact their practical lifespan going forward. This is because smartphone manufacturers tend to drop support for handsets after a few years, ceasing to provide updates to the latest versions of Android (or simply omitting older handsets in the case of Apple's iPhones). Not only does this mean potentially missing out on new features, it can also lead to incompatibility with newer apps and services. To ensure you don't end up locked out of your favourite apps, it's worth researching how long different smartphone manufacturers typically support their handsets post-release.
