Yesterday, after long speculations, the LG G3 was finally presented, which presents itself with a top hardware equipment. The South Korean flagship features a 2.5 gigahertz Snapdragon 800 processor, which is supported by 2 or 3 gigabytes of memory depending on the model.The inner values are joined by a 5.5-inch quad-HD display, which scores with a resolution of 2,560 by 1,440 pixels. In addition, the 13-megapixel camera works with a precise laser focus.
Without question, this is one of the most powerful smartphones on the market. But when we are honest, the G3 does not offer any real technology innovation.
And this lack of innovation is currently symptomatic for the sector of high-end smartphones.Because even top devices from other manufacturers offer strong hardware, but neither the fingerprint sensor from Apple’s iPhone 5s nor the 4-gigapixel camera of the HTC One M8 represent milestones in technology history.
So the development of the smartphones is currently in a slowly progressing evolution, which leaves real revolutions missing. At this point, I also always ask myself the question: What should smartphones still be able to? Where is the future of our mobile communications?Perhaps it is exactly this uncertainty to the development of the market through which the great smartphone bang is currently missing.
Voltage In The Low-End Segment
While the current top smartphones are leveling themselves at a similar level, excitement is predominant in the low-end sector. For those who want to invest only a small budget for their phones, smartphones are provided for little money, which can easily withstand everyday use.
The low-end revolution was clearly visible with the release of the Moto G , which with a solid set-up and an unbeatable price shocked the smartphone market. Thus, Motorola set a trend that continued not only with the Moto E , but also in models from other manufacturers.
The French manufacturer Wiko is also well-known for low-cost smartphones, whose hardware is quite impressive. With the Wiko Wax you get, for example, an LTE-enabled smartphone with a quad-core processor and 8 megapixel camera. And for 299 euros, there is the Wiko Highway with Octa-Core CPU and dual SIM function. However, you have to make the cutbacks with the software, because unlike Motorola, Wiko does not currently provide Android updates.
Although the low-end sector is not a smartphone revolution, but is very mobile and knows through interesting prices and equipment to draw the attention of the users. And I’m sure there are some surprises for us here. We can be curious.
