Older or outdated cell phones allow you to text and call, but you have many more options with a smartphone. This kind of device allows instant messaging, texting, calling, video calling, and conferencing, as well as internet access and gaming. If you are an active user of social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, a smartphone helps you stay connected with ease. The following are just some of the benefits that smartphone technology can provide.
Access to the web from almost anywhere
You probably remember the requirement of a desktop computer and a cable to gain access to the internet. Laptop computers and wireless access allow for the use of the internet in almost any room of your home or business. This technology in your smartphone, which includes broadband wireless, gives you the ability to gain access to the internet wherever there is cell coverage. The most current smartphones can display as much of the internet as you would see on a PC, including high-definition videos and games.
A smartphone is the combination of many devices
At one time, you may have needed a big bag to carry all the devices necessary to conduct business on a day-to-day basis. A list of these items may have included a PDA, cell phone, e-book reader, MP3 player, GPS device, and a camera. Today, most smartphones have incorporated miniaturized hardware into one functional device, like GPS, speakers, a camera, a processor, and a touch sensitive HD screen.
There are many apps to choose from
Late in the 20th century, many companies created an abundance of applications. Now, in the 21st century, there are millions of apps to choose from. The smartphone has become a device with almost limitless applications thanks to sensors, programmability, and portability. Game apps and productivity apps are not the only categories available. You can monitor your heart rate, fitness levels, and health, and track consumed calories and miles you have run, all through applications. You can get access to worlds of audio with Podcasting and internet radio apps as well. Hand held utility apps for your smartphone include a flashlight, level, and calculator. Do not forget about your creative side with apps that let you paint, draw, modify photographs, and create music.
