Although the smartphone world has continued to expand and improve over the past few years, it’s been a while since any company sought to change the game with something new and innovative. But while prominent display maker Sharp has, for the large part in recent times, stepped back and focused on developing and producing panels, its new AQUOS Crystal series boasts a bezel-free, frameless profile that not only maximizes display real estate in proportion to form factor, but as you’ll see below, is rather easy on the eye.

As our smartphones, watches, tablets and even cars have begun to make ever-increasing use of battery power, those batteries haven’t quite managed to keep up. We’re charging our smartphones at least once a day, and the new smartwatches on the market don’t do much better. Cars need recharging at worryingly short intervals, and at this point it’s arguable that we’ve been held back by the amount of juice we can give things. Something has to change.

The survey, compiled by Nielsen, found that while, perhaps unsurprisingly, the male population sampled looked at things like processor speed, display size and operating system, female subjects were rather more considerate of finer details, such as contract terms and pricing.

With smartphone screens getting larger and larger, most manufacturers are beginning to focus on trying to make sure that the ever-increasing screen size isn’t going to automatically mean that our handsets are going to grow proportionately.

Most users of digital devices containing some kind of storage will be aware that the quoted capacity doesn’t usually tell the entire story. But once we’ve established that 16GB does not equate to the full 16GB, why do some devices only offer 8GB of available storage out of the box, while others offer 12GB+? Well this is due mainly to the firmware (and often, considerable bloatware) that some companies like to throw in, and as is portrayed in a rather nice infographic by tech market researcher Which, Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S4 is the worst culprit for adding extra software.

If there’s one thing people like to do, it’s compare sales metrics for smartphones. Potentially one of the best ways to ascertain just how well a device is selling when compared with its peers, average selling prices show just how willing buyers are to pay substantial amounts of money in order to get their fingers on the latest and greatest technology from their manufacturer of choice.
