Nowadays it is very common to observe people exchanging mobile (smartphones, actually) with an often frightening, always in the attempt to be always with the latest models and the modern in the pocket. But will all these exchanges are worth?
It is clear that many of these people are passionate about technology and like to know the background of all the major releases that the big brands do, but it is worth remembering that the supply of technology in smartphones is so gigantic that it may be a good idea to establish what you need in a handset and keep it until it becomes really obsolete, and not only sure to be the latest release of the market. See the example:
- Use the phone only to send messages, receive/make calls and as an alarm clock: In theory a mobile phone, the old models and at the most affordable prices is sufficient for this type of user. Perhaps the single greatest concern is with a keyboard more enjoyable, the type QWERT, that makes typing a breeze.
- Use the phone to access social networks and post images: A smartphone already it is necessary for this type of user, but it need not necessarily be the top model in the line, since most of the smartphones account with cameras of reasonable quality, access to various applications and connection via Wi-Fi and 3G. A good example is the Galaxy Y, a smartphone from Samsung that costs around$400.00 and is able to supply all the needs of this type of user.
- Use the cell phone as an extension of my computer, for both work and leisure: in These cases a smartphone edge can actually be much more useful. The larger screens, with higher quality allow for that games and videos are rotated way too much more pleasant, most rely on access to applications that the simpler versions are not able to run. Some smartphones that cater fully to the users in this category are the Galaxy SIIIand Galaxy Note, in addition to the newly released iPhone 5.
Today, in addition to think about these aspects the user is faced with a new choice: the operating system of the device. Once the smartphones are practically computers in miniature, the choice of an appropriate operating system can also make the difference. The three big names in this sector are Android, free system up to date by Google and based on Linux platform and had its latest version released a few months ago (the JellyBean), iOS, operating system used exclusively on smartphones and Apple products and the more recently created, WindowsPhone, mainly used in the smartphones of the Finnish Nokia.
The choice of the operating system can be quite simple, simply by re-focusing on your profile, and one of the aspects that can be observed is the following: in general, users are more curious and that value the freedom of customization of the phone will like most of Android, while users with knowledge of the most basic will give better with the iOS and WindowsPhone.
Finally, it is clear that exchange or not of phone every launch is a personal choice and this article is only speculative, although we feel that change smartphone every new release it might not be a great option, since it rarely these releases bring something new completely novel or some innovative technology.
Still, don’t let it tell in the comments which is the frequency with which you change of phone, and what is your motivation for such.
