phones

Smartphones have been around for years meaning that users have the option of choosing what suits them. With the many options available on the market, the type of smartphone you choose can communicate to the world what you are all about. People choose Smartphones, whether consciously or unconsciously, based on their lifestyles.

In this article, I will talk about what your Smartphone’s screen size and operating system says about you.

Screen Size

When Smartphones first came out, they had very small screens but this has all changed. The screen size you end up choosing says a lot about you and your lifestyle.

4 inch Screen or Smaller

If your smartphone has a 4inch screen size or smaller, then you probably are not as active user. People who use such phone use them mostly to make phone calls, send texts or do the basic things phone do. Most of these people either have other Smartphones that they use most of the time or are just not that big into technology. In most situations, you will find people using these phones for business only. These are not the people you will find checking their Smartphones every few seconds unless it rings or an SMS is delivered.

A smartphone is this size range says you are not that tech savvy, not an early adopter and do not care so much about new technological developments.

Between 4 and 4.5 inches

Smartphones with screen sizes in this range are the most popular. They are mostly preferred by first time smartphone buyers and the young buyers. Most people with such Smartphones use them for phone calls, text messages and social media. People who use these Smartphones do not care so much about new technological developments but they are aware of these developments.

Having a smartphone with a screen size between 4 and 4.5 inches says you know a lot about what happens around you but you do not care so much about that if your messaging apps are not work

4.5 to 5 inches

Smartphones in this category are for the urban users and those in the know.  These people are much into social media and are those you will find updating their Facebook, Twitter or Instagram profiles 5 times or more in a day. Most people who buy these Smartphones tend to be easy going in real life but very active online.

Between 5 and 5.7 inches

People who buy these smartphones tend to be very active on social media and are those you will always find staring on their phones all the time. These people will always attend the trendiest events in town and you will always find them in the latest clothes in the coolest joints. Such people are never afraid to show off and like the finer things in life.

Above 5.7 inches

These Smartphones are pretty much used by business men/women or those people who are always on the go. When you have such a smartphone, people will always think you are a manager in some company or a very successful business man or just a show off.

Operating system

Apart from the screen size, the operating system also says something about you.

iOS

iOS is for those who like the finer things in life. These are the people who will easily get that new Porsche even if it means getting a loan for it. Such people will eat in the finest establishments and. will never like to admit it but they like to show off.

Android

People who use Android are the free spirits. Having an Android device shows you are more of a laid back individual who will easily be swayed by other people’s opinions and their actions. You are also likely to take risks.

Windows Phone

Having Windows phone shows that you like order in your life. You like getting things done and are less likely to do what you are not supposed to. Such people tend to be more productive in the office and personal lives.

BlackBerry OS

BlackBerry is for people who do a lot on their phones, be it sending messages, making phones calls among others. Most people who use BlackBerry do not adopt new technology as fast as others and they tend to hold on to things a lot. Such people like convenience in their lives.

If you’ve been wondering what the production cost for the recently released iPhone 7 is, search no further – thanks to the analysts at IHS Markit, we now have the figures.

According to IHS, the total cost for a 32GB iPhone 7 totals up to $224.80 USD after bill of materials ($219.80 USD) and basic manufacturing costs ($5), which is $36.89 USD higher than the iPhone 6S’ analyzed cost back in December 2015. This brings the total production cost of the iPhone 7 closer to the flagship phones from its primary competitor, Samsung.

While the overall shape and physical design of the iPhone 7 is similar to the iPhone 6S that preceded it, the new display has wider color gamut which improves the rendering of photos and videos – leading to increase costs. It’s also become more clear now that Apple eliminated the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack in part to allow a larger battery and haptic motor as well as a waterproof microphone.

Furthermore, Apple increased the iPhone 7’s storage density, with the base model now boasting 32 GB. From a cost perspective, the shift from 16GB/64GB/128GB iPhones to 32GB/128GB/256GB is a big reason why Apple’s cost to build the iPhone 7 saw a remarkable jump,so  Apple makes an estimated profit of $424 on each unit it sells (This is based on the cost of making each iPhone 7 and excludes the research, development, or marketing costs).

whatsapp

WhatsApp has quietly added the ability for users in group chats to tag other participants, so they receive a notification even if they’ve muted the conversation. The feature works on Android and iOS, but not on the desktop app.

You’re probably not going to like this, if you’re in a number of groups that you didn’t ask to be invited to. But if you’re lucky enough to be a part of productive and positive group chats, this will certainly come in handy to keep conversations on track.

hub

To tag someone, simply enter the ‘@’ symbol, followed by their name; you can choose a contact from the menu that pops up. You can tag multiple contacts in a single message. It also works with contacts that you haven’t saved to your address book, but are part of the same group chat as you.

WhatsApp previously added a feature that allowed you to quote messages in group chats to make it clear what you’re responding to. It also expanded group sizes from 100 to 256 participants.

With this new tagging feature, the Facebook-owned messaging service is making it even easier to keep the conversation alive with multiple contacts. What it can’t do, unfortunately, is make people less annoying in group chats

     NOTICEABLE UPGRADES

Fast Charging

According to Infinix, the Note 3 can get you up to 200 minutes of talk time with just 5 minutes of charging it. According to the company, this has been achieved with the inclusion of duo 4.5A charging engines with MediaTek PumpExpress fast charging technology to ensure a fast and safe charging process.

Aeroscope Cooling Technology

The Infinix Note 3 comes with Aeroscope Cooling Technology (ACT) that is made up of copper pipes that carry fluid through the phone to prevent overheating. When the phone is overheating, the fluid evaporates and the extra heat is circulated as water vapor. This is the first smartphone from Infinix that uses this technology and I will be keen to see if it works as expected.

Massive Battery

The Infinix Note 3 comes with a 4500 mAh battery that is slightly bigger than the 4040mAh one used on the Note 2. This battery can be fully charged in 99 minutes thanks to XCharge 3.0.

Fingerprint scanner

The Note 3 comes with a fingerprint reader that the company says can unlock your phone in just 0.25 seconds. The fingerprint scanner can also be used as the shutter button when taking photos.

Metallic Body

Infinix replaced the polycarbonate construction with a fantastic metallicious build. The downside to the use of the premium material is that the Infinix Note 3 is quite heavy, significantly heavier than the Note 2.
