Technological Innovation of Samsung Mobile Phones
With the passage of time, technology is getting more and more advanced. Mobile phones are one of the devices which are most impacted by the advancement in technology. Handset manufacturers are launching new devices with enhanced features almost every day. Growing competition is also one of the factors which is enforcing the mobile manufactures to release the handsets with new and innovative features.
Samsung is one of the biggest brands which has launched a plenty of handsets with the most sophisticated features. Apart from the features, this brand has always got a widespread popularity due to the stylish handsets it has delivered to the common masses. In the present, mobile phone market stagnation, leads to the decline of a company. So, it becomes necessary for every handset brand to enhance the technology of its handsets. As a matter of fact, the technological advancement attracts the users towards the handset. Keeping the same approach, Samsung has adopted 3G technology, and is launching the gadgets with a number of features desired by the present time users. Some of the users like the gadget with a large number of sophisticated features and, there are some who require handsets just for communication purposes.
To understand the Samsung mobile phones properly, a few handsets can be taken as instance. The Samsung i8510 INNOV8 is one of the innovative devices of this mobile phone brand which comes with a number of advanced features. One of the most desirable features of this smart device is its 8 MP camera. This camera is able to capture images in crystal clear view with resolution of up to 3264 x 2448 pixels. Several other features are also provided in this device to add more fun to photography. LED flash feature of this device allows users to take high-quality images in low light conditions. Autofocus, geo-tagging, face, smile and blink detection, image stabilization and wide dynamic range, are other features added to the camera in i8510. Besides camera features, this handset consists of other features which are supposed to be necessary in the sophisticated handsets. These include, Internet, high-end messaging features, entertainment, Bluetooth and many other. GPS-support is also available, which is proved to be a boon to the modern technology.
Another good handset by Samsung is the Samsung S6700 which consists of good features for a common person as well as a working professional. It has 3.2 MP camera which produces high quality images not expected from mobile phones earlier. Other camera features are almost similar to those of i8510. For working professionals, the handset consists of document viewer option which enables the users to work on Microsoft Office and PDF documents even on the go. Entertainment, gaming, messaging etc., are also available in this smart device. GPS is an added feature in the S6700.
Another great, but simple mobile phone launched by Samsung is the S3650 Corby. It is a lightweight device weighing only 92 grams with dimensions of 103 x 57 x 13 mm. Some other features like SMS, MMS and Email for messaging, Bluetooth, interesting games, media player etc., are available in this device but there is no GPS support. The S3650 has 2 MP camera which produces images with resolution of up to 1600 x 1200 pixels.
Undoubtedly, Samsung mobile phones have every feature that are enough to win the hearts of the present day users. Many more such handsets by Samsung are in the pipeline which are expected to provide better options to the users. It can be hoped that as the technology gets more advanced, the Samsung handsets will be launched with more and more features which are not yet imagined till today.
Let us look at the Mobile Innovation Chronology:
The following image gives us a timeline of mobile device innovation. We have come a long way starting from 1980’s to 2014 with a high paced technical growth when looking at mobile devices.
In 1973 the first Hand-Held mobile device was invented. The mobile device is not so mobile to today’s standard and was also very huge in size. It had a traditional huge design which resembled that of a much larger telephone without a cord. The next picture is about the first ever mobile device which was developed, which clearly gives us the flexibility factor while moving with these gigantic mobile devices. Though innovation in mobile devices grew within years yet these devices hardly saw much willing consumers and were more of conceptual usage.
This image shows the advent of mobile technology over the last 30 years. We have moved from traditional big mobiles to smaller designs. Researchers have always taken the problem of size on mobile devices and have been constantly reviewing design as well as technological factors. In 2014 we can expect a mobile device to have more processing power than a traditional computer in 2010.
If we look at the latest line up of Apple OS devices like iPhone5s and iPhone5c, we can observe a precision designing factor which provides much emphasis on design and look factors as well as superior hardware performance.
The Network Slice Concept, Technology at best:
Mobile device have come a long way of development. We can transfer data and have the same capability of a traditional desktop into a palm resting palmtop. The concept of palmtop was to provide a mobile device with a traditional computational prowess. Now this palmtop concept have been replaced with smartphones, which provide the traditional desktop prowess along with calling and network facility. Now a device with a SIM card and access to network can easily connect with the organizational network and can transfer data.
The image have been taken from a premier organization, which lists the network functionality of mobile devices and how it can be integrated along with the Organizational network. The main objective of the image is to provide the fact, that employees are more connected to the organization with mobile devices and have much better work life balance. There is no point spending huge amount of time in office when it can be spent with family members, which leads not only to timely job done, but also leads to much better employee engagement within the organization.
Samsung Devices Latest Technological Upgrades:
We have been watching the steady battle between the two mobile giants, namely Apple iOS devices and Samsung Android devices. What’s common between them is the high amount of technological similarities when we talk about the hardware implemented. Apple have taken their traditional stand for iOS closed operating system, which is barely customizable but high in performance, whereas Samsung Mobiles have opted for a much open operating system, Android which is highly customizable but lower in performance. Both the operating system have their pros and cons, let’s talk about the difference in both the OS to understand which are the main points of tussle between these 2 huge mobile giants.
If you prefer a simple interface, then the iPhone OS offers a simple and clean menu system that those new to smartphones will appreciate. It is significantly easier to navigate than an Android OS device. However, if you like digging deeply into menus to find the app or feature you are seeking, then the Android OS will make you drool! Often simplicity is not best, however, and too simple a menu system can leave many options behind – such as a QWERTY keypad.
The Android interface is ideal for QWERTY typing, rather than the type of keypad that drives many people mad when they try to be quick with their messages, making errors when hitting a glass or plastic screen. Android facilitates the use of a genuine keypad with real keys where your finger don’t slip on the plastic. You can purchase a number of smartphones offering real physical keypads that slide from under the touchscreen, and of a type that the iPhone OS cannot support.
Android wins with multitasking. Apple’s OS4 has improved multitasking from previous versions, but Apple restricts the iPhone to its Apps store, and the capability of the iPhone to multitask is dependent on the Apps store classification. This can significantly compromise multitasking speed and efficiency, and Android wins every time here. It’s the old Apple fixation with its own stores that restricts the OS from being used to its full capability.
Android, on the other hand, has no such restrictions, and while this is not ideal, it is still preferable to the restrictions imposed by Apple. The Samsung Galaxy 10.1, for example, uses the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) OS which offers true seamless multitasking between multiple screens.
Use of Folders
The use of folders is new in the iPod Touch, but Android has offered them from the start, thus giving them a head start in this method of organizing your files on portable devices. Many people have no need for folders in their smartphone, but if this is an important feature for you, then Android wins hands down.
Without a doubt, the Android OS beats the iPhone iOS hands down! This is not because of any technical difference between the operating systems, but simply because Android is open source. Even though it is owned by Google, the software is open for developers to use to generate apps. You will find an app for just about anything that is compatible with the Android OS, while iPhone OS apps must be approved by Apple.
Yes, there are many iPhone apps available on the market – from the Apple Store at Apple prices, though to be fair some are free. With the Android OS, however, you can go online and download unlimited apps suitable for the operating system. If you want an app to carry out a specific task, you have a significantly higher chance of finding it for Android than for any Apple device!
Which is Best: The Android OS or the iPhone OS?
Which is best between the two depends on your own personal preference. Apple fans will prefer the iPhone OS because it integrates perfectly with other Apple products such as the Apple Mac computers and laptops, the iPod and the iPad. Not only that but the unified email inbox is neat, and offers something that Android cell phones do not have – unless you find an app out there that offers this feature.
That’s something you cannot get with the iPhone operating system, because it is patented and not open source as Android is. Anything else that is email related, however, is also available on Android devices. Each offers great game options, although the open source nature of the Android OS will likely push it into the lead in this respect.
With regard to games, Android lags well behind iPhone- in fact it is next to impossible to find good games for the Android OS. Flash is another problem, though in this case with the iPhone OS. Apple has always been critical of Flash, and if you use Flash or want to access sites or apps that use it, then Apple will not allow you – Android will!
In conclusion, there is very little difference between the two, although the open source nature of Android offers the opportunity for a more diverse range of apps, if not more in actual number. With the iPhone OS you are restricted to apps and other software that Apple approves, while Android is open to anyone that wants to use the operating system to design an application.
Android OS Vs. iPhone OS:
Fundamentally, the choice is yours and the differences are not sufficient to place one much higher than the other. Apple fans will use nothing else, even if restricted to the current version of the iPhone, while Android users will like the availability of cell phones such as the Motorola Droid and the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Nexus.
Considering all these features, we have observed that both the OS performs similarly in terms of performance and iOS providing more importance to memory management and Android to customization.
Samsung device latest technological Up-gradations:
With the ever competing market among Samsung and Apple devices, Samsung have been hard pressed for high technological upgrades in its mobile device. Samsung devices now come with as much as 2GB of RAM which have the capability of running a full-fledged Windows 7 operating system in a small sleek and utterly light mobile device. To think that this much of processing power can be provided in a mobile device, was a dream even 5 years back, but the cut throat marketing as well as zeal for becoming the technology leader, has pushed Samsung to highest technological breakthrough.
