Smartphones to watch out for in 2015!

Year 2014 was an awesome year for smartphone lovers. Each release has seen minor and major changes over their antecedents, making our decision of picking out the perfect smartphone reasonably challenging. However 2015 promises to bring some amazing new smartphones from technology’s biggest names. Samsung, Sony, HTC, LG and Google are all gearing up for some serious competition from relative newcomers like Oppo and OnePlus.

Smart phones evolve at such fast pace, that what might be trendy today will be easily beaten in matter of days by another model. We give you a heads up for the phones to get excited about in 2015.

Google Project Ara

Project Ara will be “your phone” as it will be built to your own specifications and needs. The phone will be completely exclusive to its user as it will allow one to set up a smart phone based on flexible components he/she wants to use.

To be launched in March 2015 HTC One M9 or HTC HIMA is an impressive upgrade of pre-successor HTC One M8. According to latest buzz it will feature 5-inch full-HD Super LCD3 display, a Snapdragon 810 processor, Adreno 430 graphics and 3GB of RAM. Other features include a sealed-in 2840mAh battery, internal storage of 32GB and a 20.7MP camera.

iPhone 7

Apple products always manage to create a rage in the industry and we are sure the latest release iPhone 7(or will it be called iPhone 6S) will be no exception. Rumored to be launched somewhere in September 2015 (they sure have a fixation with the month), the next Apple phone could be flexible and foldable. Apple was granted a patent for ‘flexible electronic devices’ by the US Patent and Trademark Office on 6 January 2015. Also this device will have a remarkable camera, made of Sapphire Glass, at its heart.

OnePlus Two

The original OnePlus One stunned a lot of people when it was released at a price point which many considered to be about half of its market value. Thus, the OnePlus Two is one of the most awaited releases of this year, as people are questioning how the company can possibly progress on the previous device in the series while keeping it at its extremely reasonable price point.

According to early rumors related to this device, this smartphone could feature a Qualcomm, Inc. Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 3300mAh battery and a 5.5-inch 2K screen. Do watch out for this phone!

Sony Xperia Z4

Xperia Z4 is Sony’s next flagship product which is said to have an enhanced processor and camera compared to its pre successor. Rumors suggest that there will be a James Bond tie-in with this device, but stunts aside, an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of RAM and a Quad HD screen have been mooted for what could be an extremely great handset.

Those are our choices for now, but we know you possibly have some of your own preferences. So be sure to let us know what you are looking forward to in the coming months.

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
