SmartPhones Today Have All The Same Flaws

SmartPhones Today Have All The Same Flaws
Flaw 1: Smartphones just aren't durable enough

Look around next time you're in an airport, on a train, or at a Starbucks. I bet almost everyone in your field of vision has a case on his or her phone.

Of course, there's a class of confident souls who carry their phones naked, sans case. Many never have a problem. Others aren't so lucky, as evidenced by the number of people I see riding the New York City subway using case-less phones with cracked screens.

Cars have bumpers on them. Smartphones don't. Which is why we put our own bumpers on them. And screen covers. Both cottage industries are flourishing.

Compare that to 10 or 15 years ago -- I bet your old flip phone or old-school BlackBerry could take a beating and come back for more.

Insurance is an option. But who wants to pay even more money for a phone that already costs too much to begin with. And AT&T, for example, has a $200 deductible for any higher-end phone you insure. So a case seems like the most cost-effective protection solution, and if it helps keep your device in pristine condition, you might get more money for it on eBay or a trade-in down the road when you buy your next $750 phone.

Speaking of pristine, the other problem with today's smartphones is that the sleeker they are, the worse they look with any sort of blemish. Drop your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus the right way and you may just end up with a dented corner because metal dents, it doesn't break. But there's no body shop to take your iPhone to. The dent stays. Some can live with it. Others decide to hide it with a case.

A handful of more rugged phones exist, including those in Samsung's Galaxy Active line. And Samsung's standard Galaxy S5 could withstand a full dunk underwater, a feature the company decided to leave off the S6 and S6 Edge (perhaps a theoretical "S6 Active" will have it). However, a lot of these "tough" models are only marginally more rugged than their non-rugged siblings (and to be clear, Samsung doesn't describe its Active line as "rugged").

Who knows what we can expect from the future? Apple's rumored Sapphire-screen iPhone didn't materialize (yet), but Corning is launching its Project Phire Gorilla Glass by the end of 2015. Whether it will be truly unbreakable or not under normal wear and tear is anybody's guess.

Flaw 2: Lackluster battery life

The typical high-end smartphone is supposed to have enough battery life to get you through a full day -- at least with moderate use. But over time a lot of people find their phones want to take a siesta by mid afternoon.

The Geniuses at your local Apple Bar sometimes chalk that up to human error. Battery life can be reduced by the way you operate your phone. Some people are able to run it more efficiently than others. There are apps you can turn off, settings to tweak, tricks you can learn.

And that's not the only battery is bad. Introduce streaming video, gaming or excessive camera use, and you might not even last a few hours. Which leaves you with a few choices: charge your phone the old-fashioned way (use a wall charger); charge it with an external battery option; or keep your phone in a battery case that gives you extra juice on demand, in many cases doubling the battery life you'd normally get.

Galaxy S6 Vs LG G4: who wins??

Galaxy S6 Vs LG G4: who wins??

1. Design – Premium Build Quality Without Compromise

Samsung wisely upgraded the build quality of the Galaxy S6, but it did so by compromising features Galaxy S5 users love: the removable battery and expandable storage.

The downside? Both the Galaxy S6 and G4 lack the S5’s water resistance. In addition the G4 is notably bigger than the Galaxy S6.

2. Camera – Brilliant Meets Even Better

 

  • Galaxy S5 – 16 megapixel Samsung ISOCELL F2.2 sensor, DIS, LED flash, 4k video. Front facing 2MP camera, 1080p video
  • Galaxy S6 – 16 megapixel Sony IMX240 sensor, F1.9, OIS, LED flash, 4K video. Front facing 5MP camera, 1080p video
  • LG G4 – 16 megapixel sensor, F1.8, OIS, Dual LED flash, 4k video. Front facing 8MP camera, 1080p video 

You’re going to be thrilled with both cameras, but early impressions are the LG G4 will take the prize.

3. Battery Life – An Easy Win

 The Galaxy S5 had excellent stamina, but the S6 compounded its decision to ditch the S5’s removable battery by also shrinking its battery capacity. Neither are mistakes LG has made:

 

  • Galaxy S5 – 2800 mAh capacity battery
  • Galaxy S6 – 2550 mAh capacity battery
  • LG G4 – 3000 mAh capacity battery

Conclusion – Love The Galaxy S5? Buy The LG G4

let’s immediately get something out of the way: the Galaxy S6 is a brilliant phone. For me a better phone than the Galaxy S5.The problem is it doesn't feel like a Galaxy S5 successor. It ditches the S5’s trademark flexibility and practicality for style and it becomes a better rival to the iPhone 6.

So while Samsung is busy trying to win over iPhone owners with the Galaxy S6, I’d like to think LG is quietly winning dissatisfied Galaxy S3, S4 and S5 customers from Samsung…
