Mobile telephone buyers have been spoiled for choice with the growing number of phones available today. What used to be a subjective issue of price, battery life and build quality have now become distinctly objective, as manufacturers compete for the same customers. With so many options it can be difficult to decide which one to choose, but this article aims to help you make up your mind.
Mobile phone manufacturers seem to be having a bit of fun with their PR stunts these days. But it’s not just them, other companies are also following suit – with some interesting marketing campaigns to boot.
What we need to understand is that mobile phones have two different types of markets – one is the mobile handset market and the other is the mobile communication market. It is here that the two ends of the market intersect and the handset makers profit from the low cost-high availability mobile phones in both markets.
One of the latest trends is to offer the option of both small and large screen versions, but they don’t all include the latest models and don’t all have the latest versions of the software and the applications. The goal, rather, seems to be to make a profit – for example, by producing a multi-function model that offers a large screen, while also having a basic touch screen and an e-book reader built in.
The latest gadgets, most of which can be had for under $100, are usually cheap phones, meaning that if you have ever wondered why mobile phones cost so much, you will know why this is the case. Just a few years ago, a device as “cheap” as this would have been branded with “cheap”.
In reality, the Vivo U20 is one of the best phones on the market today. Some of the key features include:
Wide Micro SD card: This is one of the main feature of the new smartphone. Its rich media, photo and music capabilities make it easy to get creative with sharing files between apps, including on other mobiles such as laptops.
Text-to-Speech: You don’t have to worry about having a “full” version of Microsoft Word and any other software installed for a full translation on your phone. The Vivo U20 lets you tap into the capabilities of your voice to tell the time, the date, the weather forecast, or to take notes – just by typing a simple phrase.
Numba Support: Nokia has made it possible to run any Android app on your mobile with Numba support. This means you can get access to apps like Gmail, OneDrive, Google Maps, Waze, Google Talk and so on, right from your mobile.
These are just a few of the flexible and versatile features of the new phone. With the launch of the Vivo U20 on Friday, September 10th, there is no doubt that it is the first truly mobile phone that is not only a “flagship” but one that is a “must-have” in its class.
