The best modern smartphones

Although a dozen or so years ago, no one expected smartphones they will become inseparable companions of our lives, it is enough to glance at contemporary society not to have any doubts about it. Smart phones help us in many of our daily activities today, offering many more options than just making calls. They are used as cameras, music players, dictaphones or book readers. In devices with so many applications, it is especially important that they work smoothly and flawlessly, unfortunately not all smartphones offer the quality that ensures that using them will be comfortable. A large part of the budget constructions cannot boast of high performance, and their use is not always problem-free. At the other end of the scale, there are high-end models – premium products in which manufacturers show what they can do in the field of technology and design by implementing the latest solutions. It is these devices that we will look at in this article, and by the way, we will try to present some of the most interesting technological innovations that have recently hit the world of smartphones.

 

Devices with the best screens

Smartphone displays have come a long way since their introduction to the market. Nowadays, their large diagonals and high resolution allow, in most cases, comfortable consumption of multimedia content. However, the screen is uneven. In addition to the resolution, which translates directly into the sharpness of the displayed image, an important issue is the technology in which the display was made. Currently, leading manufacturers focus primarily on OLED screens, in particular Super-AMOLED. Matrices based on this technology are much less reliable than their predecessors from several years ago, and their unquestionable advantage over LCD screens is their excellent contrast, impossible to obtain on a display of another type. For this reason, all the biggest players in the smartphone market, including Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi and Apple.

SMARTPHONES

In terms of the quality of the displayed image, so much progress has already been made that it is difficult to present anything new in this matter. Manufacturers therefore focus on innovations of a slightly different type, such as folding screens. Samsung in its Galaxy Fold model and Huawei in Mate X used such a solution. For now, it is only a show of the manufacturers’ capabilities, burdened with many “childhood diseases”, but perhaps in the future this technology will become more practical and versatile.

 

Groundbreaking photographic opportunities

It is obvious for most smartphone users that we use them largely to take photos and share them with others. As such, a good camera is often one of the most important factors in choosing a new device. The parameters of the matrix itself are only the proverbial tip of the iceberg, because software plays a significant role in mobile photography. The smartphone software has a real task to get the best results from tiny lenses and matrix. Lenses, because in modern smartphones there are more and more of them more than one – three or four in the most expensive models are nothing extraordinary. These additional lenses are most often used to retrofit the camera with various interesting functions, such as optical zoom, wide-angle lens or achieving a bokeh effect. Of course, it is not the number of lenses that should determine the choice of a new smartphone. First of all, you should analyze the parameters of individual matrices and check what possibilities they offer, and whether they prove to be really useful on a daily basis. One of the most practical applications of additional lenses is undoubtedly the optical zoom, which allows for a lossless zooming in the image several times with the use of lenses. The most shining in this respect are the Huawei flagships, which offer up to 5x optical zoom in their cameras, which, when combined with a digital one, allows you to get a stunning 50x zoom. First of all, you should analyze the parameters of individual matrices and check what possibilities they offer, and whether they prove to be really useful on a daily basis. One of the most practical applications of additional lenses is undoubtedly the optical zoom, which allows for a lossless zooming in the image several times with the use of lenses. The most shining in this respect are the Huawei flagships, which offer up to 5x optical zoom in their cameras, which, when combined with a digital one, allows you to get a stunning 50x zoom. First of all, you should analyze the parameters of individual matrices and check what possibilities they offer, and whether they prove to be really useful on a daily basis. One of the most practical applications of additional lenses is undoubtedly the optical zoom, which allows for a lossless zooming in the image several times with the use of lenses. The most shining in this respect are the Huawei flagships, which offer up to 5x optical zoom in their cameras, which, when combined with a digital one, allows you to get a stunning 50x zoom.

 

Efficient batteries

Undoubtedly, the biggest problem of advanced smartphones is their woefully short working time on a single charge. Unfortunately, high-tech components have their own needs. Manufacturers who are not afraid to put a more powerful battery in the casings of their devices come to the rescue here – the lead here is Asus, which offers a 5000 mAh battery in its flagship Zenfone 6 model, allowing for at least 2 days of work. Xiaomi and Huawei can also boast of powerful batteries reaching 4000 mAh in their flagships. Unexpectedly, very efficient batteries have also started to be offered by Apple in the new iPhones – 2 days of work should not be a problem for the new models from the 11 series. It should be noted that in long operation it is not only the battery capacity that counts, but also good software optimization.
