Characteristics of smartphones - what parameters are key and important 05/14/2019
Choosing a good smartphone only at first glance seems simple; it would seem that thanks to a well-designed media system, any consumer with rather mediocre knowledge in the field of electronics will be able to understand the “stuffing” of the model of interest and finally make a decision whether such a device is suitable for him or not. In fact, many issues in selection may turn out to be more controversial when carefully examined. The characteristics of phones and their price tags vary greatly, and this leads to some confusion, so you need to arm yourself with an approximate algorithm for choosing the main parameters of a smartphone and, based on this, calmly evaluate whether the device you like is really that good.
NECESSARY FUNCTIONS OF A SMARTPHONE OR FOR WHAT PURPOSES WE CHOOSE A MOBILE PHONE
smartphones store.jpgThe necessary functionality of a smartphone depends on the specific user, on the requirements that he places on the phone. Conservatives are satisfied with buying a regular mobile phone - making calls, listening to music and a minimum set of standard functions. The modern advanced user is fundamentally not satisfied with this state of affairs; if the potential of the device allows not only to make calls and write SMS, but also to use it as a navigator, toy, camera, source of any information, then why not use it to the fullest? It is no secret that the decisive factor when choosing a smartphone is its cost, or rather the price-quality ratio, and yet, when making a purchase, you should pay attention to whether the user will be able to use the basic functions for which the device is designed: access the Internet, take photographs, take video, listen to audio and watch videos, read e-books and various documents, work with email, use a GPS navigator, take notes, type texts and work with office applications, play, control other devices, and so on.

As for technical issues, when choosing a new smartphone, first of all, you need to pay attention to the quality of the display, operating system, processor, memory, camera, battery.
The comfort of using a smartphone is ensured by the display, which not only occupies a significant area of the device, but also takes the main load during operation. When choosing, you need to pay attention to such important parameters as screen resolution, screen diagonal and display type.
This parameter is responsible for the quality and clarity of the display. A high-quality screen provides a more enjoyable viewing of videos and films, documents, photos, Internet surfing, toys and so on. Of course, the higher the resolution, the better. Accordingly, if you use a screen with a minimum resolution of 240x320 or 480x800 pixels, this obviously will not add comfort and pleasure, but if you give preference to smartphones with a resolution of HD 1280x720 or Full HD 1920x1080, the difference will be very noticeable.

And, for those who get the most out of their device, models of six inches or more have already been released. It is very important that the phone is ergonomic - you should not choose a model that hardly fits in the palm of your hand. The best option is when it is easy to control the device with one thumb. However, it is worth noting that manufacturers are making screen frames thinner and thinner, so today's 6-inch smartphones are the same in size as 5-inch gadgets released several years ago. A striking example is the Highscreen brand smartphone HIghscreen Power Five Max 2
Many factors depend on the type of display or matrix - picture quality, display contrast, lack of glare and viewing angles. In a good model, from any angle the picture will always be clear, rich, and contrasting. There are four types of matrix: Super LSD, Super Amoled, IPS, Retina. The most popular and most used is the IPS matrix; it is used in 2/3 of smartphones on the Android OS.
Today, the market is filled with smartphones with a wide variety of operating systems, the most popular of which are IOS, Windows, and Android. Others are much less common and there is no point in mentioning them.
Android. Most manufacturing companies prefer to abandon their own OS, considering it more expedient to switch to Android. A huge advantage of the operating system is its ease of use, the ability to optimize the interface as desired and achieve uniqueness in this regard; do not forget about the countless number of free programs/applications.
iOS. An operating system that was created specifically for Apple devices. It is simple, fast, optimized for all applications, considered
I believe that there is no virus that can hack it.
Windows. Despite the fact that this operating system is younger than those listed above, is a little imperfect and there are not many applications for it, it still has potential. Smartphones running this OS are chosen by people who want to stand out from the crowd.
The “brain” of a smartphone sounds like a “processor” in technical terms. Its power is determined by the number of cores, which can vary from one to eight; in the future, up to 16 are predicted. It is logical that the more cores, the more productive and stable the device functions. But the powerful processor quickly drains the battery. Some manufacturers change the clock frequency (affects the speed of the smartphone) downwards and disable some cores when this is permissible, and when it is necessary to use them at full power, turn them on again. It is recommended to purchase smartphones with 4 or 8 cores and a frequency of 1.2 GHz or more.

In addition to RAM and built-in memory, almost every Android smartphone already offers the possibility of additional expansion using a flash card. For normal operation, the phone requires at least 1-2 GB of RAM, 8-16 GB of internal memory. It is better to purchase a flash card of at least 64 GB, high class, for example 10th, since the speed of all operations will depend on this.
In today's smartphone, the camera is an integral attribute, so in this direction the race for megapixels does not stop, ensuring clear lines and bright colors. We also remember about optical stabilization (which makes not only photos but also videos clearer), autofocus, camera sensor and ISO (allows you to take high-quality pictures in any conditions). Today, the most popular smartphones are those with a 13 MP main camera and a 5 MP front camera; these are decent devices that allow you not only to take decent photos and videos, but also to take selfies and communicate via Skype.

For a long period of time, the lack of a capacious battery was a real problem for the modern user - powerful devices with serious functionality were “depleted” literally within a day. Fortunately, the issue of operating time has now been successfully resolved by some manufacturers, including the Highscreen brand. For example, the Highscreen Power Five Max 2 model with a large battery capacity is very popular.
In conclusion, we can say that when choosing a good smartphone, the main thing is not to evaluate the device according to its most popular characteristics, but to soberly assess how much this or that carefully selected parameter will be used, and whether it makes sense to pay extra for a high indicator of a function that will subsequently be simply not interesting.
