Speaking about the “evaluation” of the smartphone, it is changing with an unexpected speed. Looking back the first BlackBerry smartphone in 2000s, those smartphones powered by 600MHz CPU with 16 or 32MB of RAM and it was enough to blow every user’s mind. I still remember in 2007 when I own a BlackBerry smartphone with black and white screen and there was not backlite light and I have to press on the light button each and every time at night to see SMS or type and messages, but I really enjoyed of using it at that time.
Now, looking at current smartphone with tons of apps and bulk of storage, CPU and RAM. Some phones are powwered but quad or octa core CPU with computer class RAM (2 or 3 GB of RAM). Based on the hardware and the needs of the customers, this is just too bulky hardware.
When we coming to think about applications or apps, some companies offering with millions of apps, but do we really need those huge amount of apps?
Let’s sit back together and think about how would you use your smartphone to support your works and everyday life. These below assumptions are based on my own experiences and some came from my interview with my friends.
1. Choosing smartphone with high-end hardware – most of my friends, including me, we choose or eyes on any smartphone with high spec because we believe that high spec will offer use lag free experience. But to be honest, we rarelh use all of those hardware resource to really maximize its capability ans strength. This is the waste of resource and money that we invest in it. Normal or regular users would needs a reasonable hardware to support their taks only and that’s also mean saving and moving forwards.
2. Apps – Nearly 100% of my friends choose new phone based on apps(usually use this term for smartphone and tablet). This is one of the ost common reason flor them to use or buy a smartphone which is cost them some extra money. This could be right or it could be just a waste of your money. Let’s answer this question together: “What kind of apps that you’re usually use everyday? How many apps?“. To be honest, most of us use just around 5 to 10 apps out of thousand of those available apps out there and some time we don’t even have enough time to use those selected apps as well, so why would we base on this and choose a phone that could potentially cost us upto $1,000 by based on its software offering service? Use moneh wisely is much better.
3. Elegant design with slim and premium looking – When we talking about good looking phones, this might equal to fragilely chassis as well. Companies are trying to attract their customers by releasing elegant and good looking phone by sometimes somehow comprising the strength of the phone. We want a good looking phone but some times we don’t even have time to show it off to the people around us. We should think about how to use it because these phones are mkoney burners.
These are just my assumption that based on my experiences and also the interview from my friends but there are just so many different opinion and reasons to the Smartphone that I didn’t know. Let’s figure it out what you really need before you choose to buy a new smartphone that fit to your need and also ckost saving.
