Not so long ago, smartphones were big and bulky units that sucked a lot of power. The evolution of this phenomenal mobile phone and the power it offers users is offset by issues with battery life and weak graphics. Since the first phones were introduced, the demand for more battery capacity has risen to speed up the progression of such devices in order for them to handle the speed and strength for the tasks they were intended to perform. The slow evolution of the handy smartphone had the bar elevated with the rollout of the iPhone, changing the technology and perception of the mobile phone into a useful device that would act as a smarter phone than ever.

Many people the world over are buying smartphones at an unbelievable rate from numerous wireless carriers. In their hands, users can hold more power than ever before when it comes to the technology offered from the smartphone industry. Faster processors, better graphics, more battery life, cheaper data plans, and ultimate convenience on the go, provides users the understanding of the advancements that allow this technology to become possible for such a device to be made readily available.

The design and introduction of the iPhone and Android have provided the powerful phenomenon that has been bestowed on the world, offering greater capacity graphics cards and eliminated the performance issues of past devices. Other manufacturers have scrambled to design more efficient and impressive units trying to capitalize on the profitability of the market.

Smartphones require an enormous amount of power to operate with the software, downloads, data transfers, internet access, as well as other functions and applications. Battery life has continued to be an issue while manufacturers strive to meet the needs of users whether they use a large or small amount of power. It’s a toss up for designers as they work to offer a balance between the speed of the processor and the power with which they operate. Currently used processors operate with special cores that are designed for low power, but have the ability to increase to complete larger tasks that require more juice. The results offer a higher performance design that decreases power usage of smartphones on the market today.

Just a few years ago, no one would have imagined that the world would have access to a small device that one could hold in their hand, one that would let you call across the globe, access the internet, perform desired activities, participate in online gaming, use your phone for a GPS, or a gazillion other things like emailing your boss that you are taking a sick day from work. The technological world in which we now live offers limitless possibilities as technology never fails to amaze users around the world.
