With smartphones witnessing technological advances by leaps and bounds, consumers are spoilt for choice. But certain factors influence the consumer’s choice more than the others. Let us see what they are.
The year 2018 is seeing smartphones of mid-level range become smarter and the high-end phones become costlier. Thus today smartphone shopping has become quite easy with even mid-range phones offering a host of features like 4g, good storage, and battery life, front and back camera etc. While Samsung Galaxy and iPhones are still considered to be trendsetters, today the mid-range 4g mobile with its ability to imitate features of these smartphones, is considered quite a buy.
But with the variety of smartphones that are available in the mid and the higher ranges, it is quite difficult to make a choice. In fact with so many terminologies associated with the same, the consumer tends to get confused as to what to buy. Some of the major features which make a difference to the performance of individual phones are:
- Processor: This forms the core or the foundation of a smartphone. It enables the smartphone to work properly and is also the single most important factor which determines the functionality and utility of the same. Thus processors coming along with the smartphones have to be of the best quality that is technically possible. Qualcomm is a trusted name in this aspect and its technological researches and advancements have enabled it to come up with the Snapdragon 845, the latest in its long line of smartphone processors. Empowered with all the goodness of the previous processors from the same company, the Snapdragon 845 is set to give more prominence to the all-new and extremely powerful graphics processing unit or Adreno 630. Thus smartphones equipped with this technology are technically ready to manage Artificial Intelligence assignments.
- Display: The Bezel-less display format which made its debut in the year 2017, is all set to enable smartphone displays to be of the 18:9format. This enables smartphones to ensure a borderless display thereby making it easy to multi-task in the split screen view. Vertical scrolling apps also show more applications and content thereby making any smartphone using this technology the best mobile phone available today.
- 5g ready: With 4g becoming immensely popular, the time has come for the debut of the 5g or the fifth generation network which is said to be characterised by immense internet speed but with the lesser impact on the battery life of the smartphone. Considered globally to be the latest standard for IoT or Internet of Things communications and smartphones, it is set to enable millions of gadgets and devices to connect to the internet without experiencing either a change of speed.
- Other relevant features: With the best mobile falling in the mid-range category today, the technology which was previously thought to be exclusive for the high-level expensive phones are also available at affordable prices. Thus today it is possible to get the bezel-less display and a host of other features provide the perfect smartphone experience but at a lower and much affordable price.
The year 2018 is set to see quite a few exciting changes in the smartphone technology. Thus this year is also the best year to go in for a new smartphone especially in the mid and the higher ranges. It is not only the features that are set to become better, smartphones are also set to come in a lot more attractive designs with durable bodies.
