It is quite a common habit to toggle between several apps at any one time.
It likely won’t be an issue if you have a powerful enough smartphone. If you don’t however, this could lead to abrupt shutdowns and other performance issues.
With smartphones acting as surrogate computers on the go, it is apparent that we need more of that power in our pockets. Let’s take a look at even more reasons why.
1. For quick and easy browsing on big screens
For those who like to stream and watch high-definition videos on their smartphones, access image-heavy web pages frequently, edit high megapixels pictures and check emails, a powerful smartphone with a large RAM memory and an efficient core processing unit is definitely a must-have!
2. To work productively and efficiently from your smartphone
Multitasking, and all that toggling between apps for work – email, internet browser, contacts, etc, will likely not cause your smartphone to lag when the device is packed with power, offering superior productivity and efficiency.
As much as we would all prefer not to work on the go, this will definitely come in handy, when you absolutely need to.
3. For extended run time
No one likes having a phone running low on battery, especially when they are right smack in the middle of the day. But with a powerful and optimised processor, your smartphone will be more efficient in managing battery consumption thus extending the duration of usage.
4. To stay connected on the go
Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest. These are some of the more common apps that make up our day-to-day activities. So choose a smartphone that gives you the fastest possible connection so you can constantly keep abreast with updates within your social circle.
5. To watch Full HD movies and play advanced games without any lags
When you’re enjoying that Full HD movie on your smartphone or playing graphic intensive games, that powerful processor and fast, large RAM will definitely come in handy. Especially with today’s advanced games graphic and high latency requirement, a powerful smartphone is required to handle the system’s demands so your device won’t heat up easily and have your game play affected by possible lags.
With all these reasons, a powerful smartphone is a definite must-have!
Two standouts today would have to be the recently released Samsung Galaxy S6 4G+ and S6 edge 4G+, which are powered by an advanced and cutting-edge Samsung core technology. Both devices are fitted with Samsung’s first 14nm Exynos 7 Octa Core processor running on the superior 64-bit architecture that maximizes performance while consuming less battery.
They run on the latest AndroidTM 5.0.2 (Lollipop) and are supported by 4G+ LTE Category 6 network with a download speed up to 300Mbps!
If your smartphone is your go-to for almost everything, then you’d need a relatively large memory space. Samsung Galaxy S6 4G+ and Galaxy S6 edge 4G+are both backed with 3GB RAM on the new LPDDR4 memory system and UFS 2.0 Flash memory that can provide high performance and enhanced memory speed with lower power consumption.
On that note, each also features a 1440P/VP9 hardware based codec for the smooth streaming of HD videos. The 5.1” Quad HD SUPER AMOLED screen offers a higher pixel density of 577ppi which enhances screen quality, colour rendition and sharpness for a full HD experience.
Lastly, both devices boast powerful batteries at 2,550mAh and 2600mAH respectively, with battery saving features such as Ultra Fast Charging, Wireless Charging and Ultra Power Saving Mode to ensure that your device is juiced up conveniently.
