Yesterday, Apple announced the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X specs, pricing, release dates, and we got to try them out. But which of these three phones is right for you? It depends on your hobbies and daily activities, of course, but I’ve broken it down to what’s most worth it depending on what you’re looking for. If you are in desperate need of a phone immediately, it’s important to note that the iPhone X won’t be out until November 3rd, and the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus come out September 22nd, so you might settle for an iPhone 8 or have to tide yourself over with a cheaper iPhone 7 Plus in the meantime.
First, let’s consider the iPhone 8 compared to its predecessor. The iPhone 8 offers some improvements to the iPhone 7, but if you just bought an iPhone 7 last year, I recommend skipping the 8 this time. It has an all-new glass design, wireless charging capabilities, and an A11 Bionic chip, with faster cores. The battery life in both the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus remains the same as the 7 and 7 Plus, too, but this year’s phones have True Tone display, which changes the screen to look better to your eyes based on ambient light around you.
Back in the year 2000, a person, whose name I can’t remember, told me about devices of the future during a lecture that I’ve also forgotten the name of.
One of the key questions was whether in the future we’ll be using one device that can do everything, or multiple very specialized devices.
Back then, there was no such thing as proper smartphones, and I couldn’t even imagine, that these would eventually change all our lives.
Nowadays, they’re around everywhere and make conventional cameras feel more and more pedestrian every year.
And with good reason!
The results Microsoft is obtaining with the mobile version of Windows 10 are much worse than what the firm expected in the beginning, even more so if you consider the market penetration this system currently has, if you compare it with other proposals like iOS or Android, it is practically nonexistent.
In fact it’s getting to a point in which, given some of the latest movements from the people at Redmond, it would seem that they are finally starting to give up on their Windows 10 Mobile development. Over the last few months we have seen how Microsoft itself is updating and improving, in many ways, its applications on other mobile platforms such as Android and iOS, rather than Windows 10 Mobile itself.
Well, the last movement we saw from Microsoft, does nothing but confirm this assumption, this was done in the last monthly update that was just made available to the general public. In this you can see that, once again, the Redmond firm has ignored the security errors detected in the mobile version of Windows 10, which shows that Windows phones are not exactly one of the main priorities of the company these days.
Phablet have proven to be for years one of the most desirable smartphone types, as it has been the trend for some years that all smartphones have sizes close to a phablet.
People love this convergence between smartphone and tablet, mainly by the size of its screens, which are large and allow you to better enjoy multimedia content and social networking. Let’s get to know the best phablets of 2015.
Phablets, ideal for enjoying multimedia content
It all started just four years ago, in September 2011, when Samsung launched the first Galaxy Note, a smartphone, called a "phablet", which meant the audacity to use a 5-inch screen, 5.3 inches specifically.
TheDitigalCamera has developed a new battery life test procedure which confronts the batteries of smartphones with a burst of trying tasks, related to our usage. The results are surprising.
Remember your old Nokia 3310, that GSM capable brick that delivers your messages and calls for three days without ever getting near an electrical outlet. We are in the year 2000. 14 years later, most smartphones can’t go without a charge after a normal day of usage. It’s hard to speak of regression since their performance have reached monumental bounds… But we do it anyway. This frustration has been amplified since our smartphones have become more and more indispensable. And more versatile. Processors, screens, sensors of all kinds, the power exerted by smartphones is not vain, it corresponds with the natural evolution of always advancing multimedia usage: high resolution photos (See more: Best Camera Phone), Full HD video capturing, 3D gaming, multitasking, etc. How do we reconcile this abundance of performance with a suitable battery life? A technological challenge, surely one of the biggest of the next few decades for manufacturers of smartphones and mobile devices in general.
