With all the technological advances made in the past few years, those within the smartphone industry are perhaps the most revolutionary. These genius mobile devices have transformed that way that people communicate with one another and engage in a variety of online activities. To take a look back, let us cover four of the major smartphone advances made in the last three years.
Major Breakthroughs in Camera Technology
When smartphones first became a reality, many were rather disappointed in the camera quality. While this is obviously not what a phone was designed for, many were hoping for a phone that would allow them to do away with their digital camera. That is now a reality thanks to the advances made in the past three years. There is even a feature on many newer phones to have reverse the picture and perform editing features.
Improved Sound Quality
While it used to be difficult at times to hear certain sounds on the phone, improved technology has taken care of that as well. The sound is rather remarkable on some phones today, allowing for easy listening even without a microphone. This is an additional feature that has many quite excited.
It may have been expensive in the past to call our neighbors to the south, but again that is no longer a major concern. Improved technology has made calling distant family and friends easier than ever before thanks to increased cooperation amongst the cellular companies of the world. Many smartphones even make it possible to make calls to Mexico for next to nothing. International calling has come a long way since the 90s.
Bigger Screen Sizes
The first smartphones were so heavy on components that it left little room for the actual screen. The last three years have seen the thickness of the phones shrink and the area dedicated to the screen increase. This is a positive development indeed. It is now possible to do much more on a smartphone than every thought possible. This is causing many to do most of their online activities right from their phone, virtually eliminating the need for a desktop computer altogether.
These are just four of the many advances that demonstrate why the smartphone has truly become a genius gadget. With nearly everyone on the planet it seems using a smartphone today, the advances will likely keep coming. Our lives will never be the same again, and we are more productive as a result.
