Smart Phones and Their Uses

The latest addition to Sony’s flagship series Xperia is perhaps one of the most interesting of all the announcements made in the CES 2013 in Las Vegas. Sony has high hopes for Xperia Z with impressive specifications. Even critics have been positive about the Smartphone. It has an aesthetically pleasing form, as is typical of Sony Smartphones. The contours are slightly rounded, but the rectangular shape is retained. As of now, Sony Xperia Z is slated to be launched in three colors, namely, black, white and purple.

Sony Xperia Z has a sprawling 5 inch Full HD Retina display with 1920 x 1080 p resolution and 441 ppi pixel density. Even though Retina display is not unique for the phone (iPhone 5 has a similar one), combined with the resolution and pixel density, it is certainly one of the brightest. Using Mobile Bravia Engine 2 has significantly advanced the display. Sony has truly upped the game with Xperia Z in terms of visuals. At 146 g, it is not one of the heaviest phones around. But don’t let that fool you; the handset is power packed with a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz.

It has a Adeno 320 GPU. Along with the advanced GPU and 2 GB of RAM, this phone is certainly a good pick if you are a heavy gamer. It also contributes to smooth multi-tasking and a fluid user interface. The internal storage is a staggering 16 GB, which can be extended to 32 GB using microSD card. The phone has a brilliant 13 MP rear camera equipped with auto focus and LED Flash. It can even shoot Full HD videos. The front camera is of 2.2 MP, again, with Full HD video. It is quite remarkable for a camera used mostly for video chatting. The phone runs on a standard 2330 mAh Li-ion battery. But since the battery is non-removable, some potential users are having second thoughts about the Smartphone. Connectivity of the phone is pretty standard: Bluetooth 4.0, dual band Wi-Fi, GPS and DLNA. The phone also has Near Field Communication or NFC capabilities.

Power banks are portable device that is made of special type of battery called Lithium-ion (or Lithium-Polymer) that is enclosed in a special case and also have a electronic circuit that controls the flow of power. These power banks can hold electrical charge which can be later use to charge your smart phones, tablets and other portable media devices. The power banks are small in size and light in weight and hence they can be easily carried in a bag or pocket.

The Power Banks we’re talking about are good for almost any USB-charged devices. A Power Bank you can charge by connecting it to a power outlet. In simple, it’s mean how‘healthy’ your phone battery is. Power Banks come in different sizes and the mAh figure tells us the total capacity of the batteries. Cameras, GoPros, Portable speakers, GPS systems, MP3 players, smartphones and even some tablets can be charged from a Power Bank – practically anything that charges from USB at home can be charged from a Power Bank – you just have to remember to keep your Power Bank charged, too!

  • Most Power Banks use USB powered.
  • Phone battery storage capacity will be lower and lower.
  • In other words, the more mAh the Power Bank has, the larger the energy is.
  • Modern gadgets are power hungry.
  • This means that a power bank, like a smartphone, iPad or GPS system is charging by connecting it to a USB charger (which comes standard with most smartphones and tablets) or those with an often USB cable to connect to a computer.
