Smartphones - Which One Should I Buy?

Smartphones are beautiful, so beautiful in fact that many manufacturers are beginning to place female voices inside your phone so they seem more lively and vibrant, too bad that they don't substitute for a girlfriend. However, as beautiful and elegant as smartphone maybe you may find it difficult to choose the right one for you. With so many different options in the market, how do you decide which one is the best for you? Here, I'm going to share with you my five tips for choosing the right smartphone.

Rank Your Priorities: I don't mean keep a written note of what you look for in a phone, it's better to keep a mental note or an idea. When I say priorities, I mean what aspects of a smartphone do you find important. Maybe you need a phone that cost under $400 or with a really good camera. A bright and beautiful screen, even a stylus or maybe you need a phone just for watching funny videos. As long as you know your top two or three priorities for your smartphone, you should be able to narrow down certain phones and then make a decision from there.

Don't Be Afraid To Buy Old Phones: A lot of people will tell you that they need those brand new smartphones with the best and brand new specs. That doesn't mean you need such phone too! In a few months time the iPhone 7 will be one year old, but the previous launch i.e. iPhone 6 is still considered as a very good smartphone. So, when you're looking for the right smartphone look to the older generations of the smartphones as well, because often times you'll find phones that are still very good and are also cheaper.

Don't Feel The Need To Buy High-Priced Smartphones: Many smartphone manufacturers are moving toward this trend. You can still find some cool features and durable smartphones at a price that is lower than most high-end smartphones. Ever since I bought the OnePlus 1 for under $350, I've been so impressed with what companies can provide for such a low price. On the other I find the Galaxy Note 5, which costs over $800, is way too expensive and iPhone 6 price is just reasonable. The point is that your smartphone does not need to be expensive to be a great quality.

Think About Your Smartphone's Accessories: These accessories include chargers, battery packs, cases and pretty much anything you can either attach or connect to your smartphone. We do rely on a lot of these accessories, so you need to look for a well-established phone like the iPhone or the popular Android phones built by companies such as, Samsung, LG, Motorola. You probably won't find many accessories with smaller names or new brands, just think about whether or not you need them.

iPhones Are Very Basic: I'm not saying people who use iPhones are basic, don't get me wrong! What I am saying, however, is that I would have an easier time learning to use an iPhone then if I were learning to use any other smartphone. It's a fantastic phone an very convenient because most accessories work with iPhones. They always have great cameras and apple services even though considered overpriced are excellent in terms of keeping everything you own all in one place. I'm not saying to put the iPhone is your number one option, but I am saying that if you're looking for a high-quality device that's simple and easy to use go for the iPhone. Like I mentioned above, look to the older models of smartphones because many of them are still brilliant smartphones.

Surprise: Samsung Is Making AirPods For The Galaxy S8

Yes, Samsung launched its own wireless earphones a while ago, the Gear IconX, so it’s not like Samsung is now looking to copy Apple’s wireless AirPods. But that doesn’t change the fact that Samsung continues to get its inspiration from its biggest rival — it’s not like the IconX has been flying off the shelves.

Unnamed sources told SamMobile that Samsung is looking to launch a wireless headset alongside its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8. It’s unclear at this time whether they will be sold separately like the IconX or Apple’s AirPods, or whether they’ll be included in the Galaxy S8’s box.

Furthermore, it’s not known if the headphones will have Harman internals. In fact, it’s not even clear if Samsung is going to launch an IconX v. 2.0 generation, or whether it’s going for a brand new design for the newer model. The IconX headphones are also fitness trackers and come with built-in storage for music.

The Galaxy S8 is rumored to come without a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack just like the iPhone 7 and other Android handsets, which means Samsung wants customers to use either USB-C headphones or wireless ones.

Apple’s AirPods, announced together with the iPhone 7, generated plenty of interest and excitement in spite of the criticism Apple received for its “courageous” killing of the standard audio jack. It’s likely Samsung wants some of that attention for the Galaxy S8. Given that the Galaxy S8 will be a brand new product, Samsung is also working on brand new accessories for it, and the IconX may be too old to compete with the AirPods cool factor.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Sensors: Eyes, Fingers, and Touch

As smartphone technology has evolved, more sensors have been added to devices. In the early days of smartphones, sensors would include accelerometers and touch displays, and whilst there are these features in newer smartphones, there are plenty of new features too. In this article we’re going to talk about the various Samsung Galaxy S8 sensors that you will be able to make use of.

Eye Sensors

Perhaps the newest addition to the Galaxy range is the eye sensors. Out of all of the Samsung Galaxy S8 sensors, this one is perhaps the most interesting. With an eye sensor, it’s possible to create a new lock screen authentication method. The Galaxy S8 can also keep track of your eye movement to know exactly when to turn off the display.

Fingerprint Sensors

Fingerprint sensors have been the norm on flagship smartphones since 2015, and they aren’t going to go anywhere. Now that the security of fingerprint sensors have been improved, they work as one of the safest and quickest lock screen authentication methods. The fingerprint sensor on the Samsung Galaxy S8 can also be used to authenticate Samsung Pay, and will integrate seamlessly with the rumored retina eye scanner.

Touch Sensors

When we say touch sensors, we don’t just mean the capacitive touch screen display of the Samsung Galaxy S8. The Samsung Galaxy S8 sensors pressure in your screen presses and this means it can determine a ‘light’ touch from a ‘hard’ touch and these two touches can now be used as different input methods. Touch sensors have been in iPhones since the iPhone 6S, but it’s good to see them in Android now too.
The Galaxy S8 has been designed to make use of these sensors more than any other device before it and we now have plenty more reasons why Android smartphones are very useful, convenient devices to use in 2017.

Galaxy S8 rumoured to be the first smartphone with 8GB RAM

One of the key features that could make Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S8 an even more powerful device is the higher memory. According to a Weibo posting spotted by T3, the new S series handset could see a significant memory jump. The device could pack an 8GB RAM, which would make it the world's first flagship smartphone with such a high memory.

Not much is known about how the functionality of the phone would improve with an 8GB RAM. This year's Galaxy S7, for a comparison, has 4GB RAM, whereas last year's S6 had 3GB of memory.

Smartphones from other manufacturers which are rumoured to be equipped with 8GB RAM are OnePlus 4 and Xiaomi's Mi Notebook.

The S8 could also have an S Pen as an external accessory, another disclosure suggested. So far, the S Pen functionality was limited to Galaxy Note series but with the S8, Samsung fans might get to see change in the trend.

The Galaxy S8 is expected to come in two variants – one with Snapdragon 835 chip featuring an octa-core processor and the other one with Samsung's home grown Exynos chip. Both would be manufactured using 10nm architecture. It could sport 4K display, enhanced camera and bigger battery.

To more about Samsung's S series premium handset we will have to wait for the official launch, which could happen either at the 2017 Mobile World Congress event in February or at the New York event in April.
