Smartphones available on cheapest prices, Diwali Loot-Cheap Smartphones deals, etc. etc. etc.!!
Your eyes might be weary of seeing such advertisements in print, digital or electronic media. However, many of us still might not be acquainted well with our new friends in the telecom market.
You might be contented with your regular feature phone like my folks, who are simply happy to receive and disconnect calls or who even go to the extent of ignoring SMSes thinking that any bulk-SMS sending company might have remembered them since they committed the sin of once registering with those websites. But now is the time to move ahead, and be a part of smartphones revolution.
Smartphones are really COOL, and you can also afford one without creating a hole in your pocket. Trust me on this one, friends.
Why I’ve bought a smartphone is a different story altogether. How could I see my fractious neighbor with whom I share such frosty relations flaunting her LG Optimus 3D smartphone? To tame her tantrums, I bought a superior one.
Anyways, let me focus back on the topic.
Well, I recommend smartphones or rather the newest “entertainment devices” to each one of you. I’m advocating these useful devices not because any manufacturer has hired me for the marketing of their smartphones, but owing to the varied captivating features of these mobile devices, the finest representatives of modern digital culture.
You’d be astonished to know that though we currently have a mobile user population of over 890.2 million in India, smartphone user population accounts only for 1% of this i.e., 9—10 million users. Mobile phone usage is now no more limited to mere calling and messaging. These activities have been replaced with browsing and social networking. Kudos to Sir Steve Jobs for gifting us smartphones and changing the way we had been using our mobile devices!
What sets smartphones class apart from the feature phones are some distinguishing features. Let’s pick apart the corpse of feature phones, and see how smartphones are really smarter than these. Scalpel?
Operating systems such as iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows7 etc. manufactured primarily by Big Daddies like Apple, Google, Microsoft, etc. are available on a wide range of handsets. Whereas, the regular feature phone that you’ve been using until now is based on a language-specific OS. This implies that you have seamless access to a wide array of best-grade applications regardless of the handset you’re using if it has the same version of OS.
Now, let me touch my favorite feature of smartphones—the magical world of applications. The eco-systems of smartphones offer haven for huge scores of apps across varied spaces like utility, social networking, news, entertainment, music, games etc. However, the feature phones are limited in their capacity to run different apps and dearth of processing potential.
If you’re a multi-tasker, then you’ve a reason to smile. Smartphones can eventually prove to be your best buddies in boosting your efficiency by helping you in multi-tasking. Music player, calculator, adrenaline-pumping games, camera, utility, social networking, navigation, emails, weather, dictionary, podcasting. What more can you ask for? However if you still wish to stick to feature phones, then it’s better you stay glued to the idea of attending one task at a time.
Coming to an important aspect that cannot be overlooked when we draw comparisons between the two breeds of mobile devices—Software updates. Both operating system architects and handset manufacturers update the smartphones regularly, while feature phones seldom get these updates. So, you can keep enriching your smartphone with added functionalities.
Last but certainly not the least, the factor that attracts the eyeballs of all gadget geeks and common man, alike. That’s price. Today due to the emergence of group-buying websites in the picture, you can easily get access to many sophisticated smartphones like, Samsung Galaxy Y S5360, Spice Mi310 at much lower prices as compared to high-end feature phones.
Now that I’m done with my duty to convince you to get introduced to the new space of entertainment right in your hand, what are you waiting for? Pad up to fly high in the sky of digitally charged entertainment sky studded with stars like Apple iPhone 4, Samsung Galaxy S II, HTC HD7 etc.
