In a mobile purchasing guide, it says that you can have a small-sized phone very cheaply. The next sentence is:

But what if you want a bigger screen? In that case you (would have to/will have to) spend more money.

I think its "will have to" because it is a fact.

  • consider this sentense I found on net:"I am an extremely easy-going guy, and I think I would fit in with almost anyone".I am wondering if I can replace "would" with "will".I am really confused here! – Prof-Wiz Jul 26 '19 at 3:30

Literally, they both mean the same.
Logically, "would" is used when the person is not completely sure/ is doubtful while "will" is used when one is sure that the thing is going to happen.

  • Then in this sentense: "I am an extremely easy-going guy, and I think I would fit in with almost anyone" ,do you think that "i think" and "I would" are redundant because both means that you are not sure? Why not say " i think i will" or just " i would"? – Prof-Wiz Jul 26 '19 at 14:11
  • It's just used this way to clear up the logical meaning. A person could think and still be sure of the fact. – Bella Swan Jul 29 '19 at 11:41
