How to choose phone: do mobile touch or classic?
In Spain, a 44 per cent of mobile phones that populate the market are smartphones. They are Google’s data published at the end of the month of February, and evident good health that enjoy this type of Terminal – very well connected, touch and further loaded s which only had assigned the science fiction a few years ago. In December of last year, Spain was the fifth country in the world in share of smart phones, where 3.3 phones out of ten was a smartphone. However, the recent data placed the region as the second of the globe in this technology market penetration, behind United Kingdom.
The fact that Spain has more phones than inhabitants – the end of 2011 report stated that 46 per cent of the total population had come to smartphone per head, with a concentration of terminals almost 20.8 million units, being a 35 per cent of the nearly 59 million devices that inhabited the Spanish market – supports described above quota values. Without a doubt, says the concern of the users of our country to make the leap from the Classic GSM terminals in that other territory vitaminized with the universe of applications that will necessarily associate what is meant by a smartphone and enriched with the benefits of a small computer.
With this trend, there will be who arises to change your phone’s life, with physical keys and simple control system, on the other more advanced. However, is there really need to change our simple and functional phone for one to extend the user experience? To begin with, there to consider several aspects that van necessarily tied to doing with a smartphone.
To begin with, of course, have to take into account that we’ll use a touch screen. There are two types: capacitive and resistive. Increasingly, there are fewer devices which are panels of the second type. The sensitivity between the two is, in practical terms, the main difference. The capacitive recognize the incidence to the touch with greater ease and speed, as well as recognizing multi-touch gestures, while the resistive not. However, the motives that lead this second type of screens tend to be cheaper.
The Finnish Nokia, for example, uses this technology on their entry phones. In fact, its range Touch & Type allows, at a price very smoothly, we have a first approach with which involves having a mobile touch with many benefits for more affordable costs. In addition, these terminals touch panel with keys of life, combined with what the transition could be more comfortable. Mobile line Asha from this same manufacturer also come to participate in this philosophy, and in fact, are devices with which Nokia intends to extend its excellent position in the segment of mobile economic.
Another aspect to keep in mind when you consider purchasing a mobile touch is autonomy. Against more traditional phones, smartphones are loaded with benefits that, as expected, shorten the life of the battery between load and load. While with the mobile classic could spend several days without considering plugging into the power supply, with a smartphone the habit can become almost daily. Of course, this is subject to the type of use that we make of the device: If we frequently use the media player, turned to the camera and video regularly, several times a day we connect to the Internet from the terminal and make many calls, will have to get used to the idea of nurturing the battery at least once a day; in the event that the final use we give to the smartphone resembles that you used with the classic phone, it is possible that hardly notice the difference, depending on the model that we acquire.
Among the many benefits that may include the mobile intelligent with which the transition from one to the other devices we practised there will be a consideration especially: connectivity. Many phones of classic cut that are on the market already make up more or less advanced connections – almost all allow access to Internet via GPRS or 3 G-, but they are not fundamental to squeeze all the possibilities that offers the terminal.
In the case of a smartphone, to take full advantage always is recommended to have full access to the network, and although practical most have Wi-Fi so Let’s free online from the connection from home or the Office, if we want to be constantly connected with us we bring scares on the invoice, the solution is to hire flat data rates. With this, in many cases, jump to the smart mobile requires a small extra cost which, depending on the operator with which we contract the service and the quota of connection that we choose, will be variable but necessary.
And, of course, the final terminal price also will determine the decision to move to a smartphone or follow with your usual phone. Shut-off devices classic rarely cost more than 100 euros in free-form – to be free in almost all of the cases in which we get phones as part of a line with such or which operator-hiring, while spending is presumably greater in the case of the smart phones. However, the trend is increasingly more balanced, and it is not uncommon to find phones advanced at very reasonable prices.
We talked about Nokia Asha, for example. This line is the perfect transition between one and another category of mobile. They combine touchscreens with keyboards of all life. In some cases, integrate rich connections, and although the simpler version of the native system of the firm has been Finnish – S40-, it is possible to customize the features of terminals by downloading applications. However, the best is their prices, that are placed in a fork between 70 and 120 euros in free format.
Nokia has other really interesting handsets in this sense. Nokia Ms 610, for example, is one of the smart phones that intends to give a g olpe in the table on the segment of smartphones. An operating system, Windows Phone 7.5, which, despite being the last to arrive at the Festival of advanced platforms, has received applause and praise of professionals and users. MS 610 is the proposed economic of the firm, with a price of 190 euros in free format. Still has not been released, although when it is expected to absorb much of the attention of the public for input by condensed very interesting features in a mobile loaded with features at a cost low.
The Japanese Sony also advocates a similar line. Just one month presented its new Xperia line, among which crept a terminal that moves in this area: the Sony Xperia U. The proposal moves in another category based on its platform. We are talking about Android, Google, which allows you to download applications selectable system between an assortment of hundreds of thousands of available options. The idea of the Xperia U is that, by around 250 euros in free format, can be to have a mobile that has little to envy to first line terminals, integrating really powerful performance in a very compact format. By the way, if what we want is a compact phone and at an affordable price, we could also consider the option of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini, at a cost of 200 euros, although in this case with more modest benefits.
Other firms that includes smart phones designed for users that start in this technology is HTC, although in this case, the prices are above it seems. Among their most current phones, stands out the HTC One V, which will be worth 300 euros when it reaches the shops in the coming days. The proposal moves into a bias similar to the Sony Xperia U, although as we see, for one slightly higher price. If we choose any option below 200 euros in the catalogue of the Taiwanese, the most recent election would go through the HTC Explorer.
We have mentioned that with the Nokia Asha line, the Finnish wants to strengthen its catalogue of mobile affordable. In this line, the nearest rival is Samsung, who also has a large share in this market. In fact, among the options that displays the Korean firm in the sector of the smart phones could consider, at a price very smoothly, the Samsung Galaxy and, which includes comprehensive although modest benefits in a compact phone that costs less 150 euros – about 1 70 euros if we talk about its version with front full keyboard.
A somewhat higher – power, and how online, price-wouldn’t the Samsung Galaxy Ace, composed by a line that started with the mobile that gives name to this family of phones and continues with the imminent Galaxy Ace 2 and Galaxy Ace Plus, with costs of acquisition of between 200 and 300 euros. Precisely around the 200 euros, by the way, are the Samsung Galaxy Mini and Samsung Galaxy Mini 2, who come to be proposed something more light on features, but also more adjusted to the needs of the users input.
As it is natural, as we go up the bar we will be finding increasingly complete terminals, although the increase in power will be rigged to a remarkable growth in the price. We speak of devices like the iPhone 4S, which costs between 600 and 800 euros – depending on the internal memory that equip you-, although it is also possible to get Terminal’s spectacular performance at more reasonable prices. For about 500 euros, for example, might do with the Samsung Galaxy S2, while Nokia Ms 800 could be ours by about 430 euros.
