Smartphone Guide

Smartphones today determine our everyday life. Until the mid-90s, the world knew only conventional mobile phones. Then began the era of PDAs and smartphones. Palms pilot made the beginning. Among other things, he got competition from Apple. At the same time Nokia tried, in the Smartphone range with the Communicator row to delight customers. Both categories already offered an extended range of functions compared to normal mobile phones.

In 2007, Apple launched its iPhone. The multi-touch user interface quickly found many friends. A year later, Google introduced its own operating system called Android. Microsoft overslept the trend and released its OS called Windows Phone way too late. Since the market was already divided. Blackberry OS did not fare better. But no matter which system was chosen, the triumphal procession of smartphones was unstoppable. In 2013, they overtook original phones in annual sales.

Almost infinite range of functions

Initially designed only for calendars, e-mails and Internet access, the range of applications widened. Meanwhile, smartphones are so powerful that they easily have a variety of applications. You can easily handle word processing, spreadsheets and presentations. In addition, they serve as a notebook, travel planner or project management tool. Owners can use them to get the latest news, manage their social media accounts, join videoconferencing, watch livestreams, or access PCs remotely.

One of the most important features is the chat. Furthermore, smartphones have long been a camera replacement. The quality of the installed hardware is now so high that there are devices that can record UHD videos. Since they are also equipped with a wide variety of sensors, they offer functions such as navigation or tracking in sports. In the more private sphere, the topic of music is settled. Smartphones have supplanted classic mp3 players. Also rather private is the gaming area. Here a huge market has opened. Everyone now practically carries a mobile game console around with them.

Many different distributions

Although Apple launched its iPhone, most smartphones today have Android installed. The reason for this may well be the pricing policy. A well equipped Smartphone you get for 200 euros, which is well below Apple’s prices. That’s why today is with the term Smartphone usually meant an Android device.

The market is dominated by Android and iOS. But Microsoft also tries by all means to establish its Windows Phone. Blackberry OS is only a marginal phenomenon. Interesting are alternative developments such as Firefox OS, Tizen, Sailfish or Ubuntu. They are not subject to strict restrictions by the major manufacturers.

Difficult purchase decision

It is a personal decision which one Smartphone you choose. Manufacturer, system, size and equipment all play a role and have an immediate effect on the price. If you decide for Android, Samsung Galaxy S series at least as a reference object is not over. The models are unbeatable bestsellers. However, there is strong competition from China. From there come in ever shorter intervals top devices at extremely low prices.

Important factors are a scratch-resistant display, a large, replaceable as possible, battery and the update prospects on the part of the manufacturer. Decisive is also the resolution of the display. With a 5 inch device HD should be in it. A processor below 4 cores is not worthwhile anymore. As memory 2GB should be installed. The internal memory should not be lower than 16GB.
