1. Internal phone memory
Internal storage or phone memory is an important point to be considered as this storage cannot be replaced very frequently like microSD card.

So make sure that there is minimum 1GB internal storage in the new phone.
2. Speed of the processor

3. RAM : Random Access Memory
RAM is the other important factor to be considered before buying the phone. Each and everything such as the core apps and the apps that you are using currently is stored in RAM. When you close any app this is stored in RAM so that next time when you will again open the app it will be launched from RAM as RAM is much more faster than internal and external storage. So RAM should be at least 1 GB minimum.
