Is Your Phone Really all that Smart?

In today's fast-paced, high-tech world almost everyone has a smartphone.  The name itself implies that your phone is smart, but is it really all that smart?  We have come a long way in a short period of time with mobile technology, but it is nowhere near perfect.  Smartphones have changed our lives in ways that we never would have imagined a decade ago, but there are still ways that this technology can be improved to be even smarter and more functional. 

Better Security

In an age where people are using their mobile devices way more than traditional computers we still do not have the same level of security for mobile.  We keep just as much, if not more, personal data on our smartphones and tablets but there is no protection against hacking or viruses.  Some companies have begun to develop better security software for mobile devices but it has not caught on in the mainstream yet; just ask the throngs of celebrities who are constantly having their privacy violated. 

Longer Battery Life

Developers spend a lot of time increasing speed and improving the camera, but those improvements come at a cost.  Battery life is a daily struggle for phone lovers with some of the heaviest users needing to charge their phone two or even three times a day.  If smartphones are so smart they should be able to stay alive and well no matter how many hours in a row we have been playing Candy Crush. 

More Functional Design

Some smartphone features are mind-blowing, but they are not as easy to use as they should be because the design is not functional.  One of the newest additions to the iPhone camera for example, time-lapsed videos, are really cool but not really feasible when you have to spend the time trying to balance your phone instead of getting in front of the camera.  There is also that pesky issue of headphones; our phones are powerful enough to hold all the music we own in the cloud, but they can't even hold our headphones and anyone who has ever put their headphones in their pocket knows how much of a nightmare that can be.  PopSockets provide ways to overcome some of these design flaws and make your smartphone smarter.  For more information on how to improve your mobile device quickly and easily check out PopSockets.com, or feel free to contact us.
