How Technology is Helping to Improve User Mobile Phone Experience?


Technology is constantly evolving, so that the buyer’s mobile phone experience is in a state of constant evolution, constant upgrade and constant improvement. One only has to take a glance at how mobile phones have evolved in India over the last decade and a half. 

First we had black and white display phones that just about made calls and sent messages. They looked like bricks and were heavy and chunky. Those bricks changed to colour-display phones, and those colour-display phones gave way to phones with cameras, which gave way to phones that played music, and not just the monotone kind either. 

Phone shapes and sizes changed over the years. There was even a semicircle with buttons at either end for gamers about 10 years ago. There were micro-mini phones. There were blade-thin phones too. Then came phones with the internet, then phones that could shoot high quality videos. 

Phones doubled up as televisions; they had to expand again. Today we have an entire powerhouse in a slick, lightweight little 6 to 7 inch phone that might be likened to a business card holder. This transformation in terms of size and weight is in itself an achievement, even if you don’t count the improvements made in terms of features. 

Upcoming smartphones promise to be even more astounding. 6GB RAM mobiles are commonplace now, and 8GB RAM mobiles are now the most sought-after in terms of RAM. Octa-core processors are already doing the rounds, especially in the 6GB RAM mobile category. People are also becoming more savvy and checking the clock speed (or how many instructions a phone can read in a second) of a mobile phone before purchasing it. The new norm is 2.3GHz minimum. 

More powerful batteries

We’re talking 6000mAh batteries now and for a good reason. Massive screen sizes with HD display, and phones designed to handle a ton of apps at once with 6GB RAM mobiles and 8GB RAM mobiles, not to mention phones designed to speed up like race cars with state-of-the-art processors have all contributed to a clear need for high battery. These massive batteries can be found in quite a wide choice of devices, across brands and at various price segments. Some examples include: 

  • Samsung Galaxy M51, priced at approximately Rs. 22,000 
  • Asus ROG phone III, priced at approximately Rs. 50,000
  • Poco X3, priced at approximately Rs. 17,000

All of these upcoming smartphones come with excellent batteries and do not need frequent charging, unlike devices that have less battery capacity. 

Batteries made of different material 

Graphene is the new buzz word when it comes to mobile batteries. The smartphone industry has historically relied on Lithium for the Lithium-ion batteries that power the smartphones we use today, but the new go-to is supposedly going to be Graphene. There are at least three upcoming smartphones touted to come with Graphene batteries that have been announced by manufacturers. These include 

  • Xiaomi’s M10 – 2021 edition
  • Huawei’s P40
  • Samsung – model number not named by brand

Wireless charging 

A fitting and much-needed response to the needs of today’s on-the-go smartphone user is wireless charging. We anticipate that wireless charging models will flood the market in the months and years to come, simply on the basis of the fact that this is much required. A few smartphones already have this feature, namely:

  • OnePlus 8 Pro
  • Xiaomi MI10
  • Motorola Edge Plus


Security has become increasingly important with people living their entire lives on their phones. As a result, phones evolved to first have fingerprint sensors, and now several smartphones come with iris sensors. You can expect more of this in upcoming smartphones. Here are a few models that already boast an iris sensor:

  • Samsung Galaxy S9
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10; it also has facial recognition
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Whether you want one of these high-end models, or you’re waiting for a fancier model to come by, consider No Cost EMIs as a payment option to avoid having to save up to buy yourself the latest smartphone with all the latest features. You can pay in easy installments while using your new phone.
