Four Gadgets That Are Better Than Your Smartphone

When a brand launches a new MP3 we always end up asking why we need one when we have smartphones that can play music and do lots more.

Most of the time a lone device such as an iPod works better than a smartphone. A lone device just does few two things, but it does it really well.

Let’s us look at 4 gadgets that work better than your smartphone

Music players

1

Sure, you can listen to music on your smartphone, but not a great idea to do so when running. The iPod is easier to carry, and all the music and does not take up space on your phone.

Apple just restructured all three iPod models, but only the iPod Touch transformed considerably. The Touch is like an iPhone without any service, so it is not a really a music player. The ones that are the Nano and the Shuffle were changed in an insignificant way, more in terms of colour.

E-book readers

2

When you an e-book reader, you are not tempted to check your messages or mails or login to Facebook. This will happen on a tablet. Plus, e-reader screens are usually better than tablets outside in the sun because they only display black-and-white text and not colourful photos or videos. Tablets always give out a glare. The best e- readers is Amazon’s Kindle as they are lighter and thinner compared to other readers.

Digital cameras

3

Nowadays it is awful to see people depend on their smartphones to capture their memories. Though the smartphone cameras have exceled tremendously, only real cameras will provide you with crisp zoomed in images. The cameras can pick up light better which does not happen in the smartphone cameras.

Fitness devices

4

Most of us depend on our smartphone and its apps to monitor our workouts. But trust us having a fitness devices that keeps track of cycling, running and swimming activities is always a best option. Garmin GPS sports watch just does that. It is not a fancy watch nor does it have a touch feature, but it serves the purpose.

When phones are better

 Navigation is one area where a phone will be better than a GPS device in a car. An app on a phone is far convenient and can be used for directions as well as while driving.

A GPS device can be fixed on the windshield and will not drain your phone’s battery, but you can work it out using a fixture for your phone and a charger.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
