5 Mobile Technologies that Created Today’s smartphone experience

1. Cameras

1.	Cameras

This feature transformed your smartphone into a camera. The digital cameras went into the dark never to be used again. This is by far the most amazing mobile technology breakthrough in the phone industry.

2. Wireless Charging

2.	Wireless Charging

Wireless charging is one of the prominent features of latest phone models. Wireless itself was not sufficient but companies developed “fast charging” techniques that reduced charge times by 2X-3X. With a coming together of standards, it is apparent that much more wireless charging and fast charging is going to be available on most devices in the future.

3. Seamless Roaming

3.	Seamless Roaming

In the early days of cellar phones, it was difficult to move beyond your given local area, let alone make and receive calls anywhere across the globe. Our phones have an ability to seamlessly cross network providers and geographic boundaries — a service we simply take for granted despite the significant infrastructure that was required in the background to make this happen in the first place.

We repair any kind of mobile devices, cell phones, tablet & laptops. To book a repair job now, please call us on 08 8342 0008

4. SIM Cards

The ubiquitous SIM card is what gives nearly every phone its unique identity to virtually any network. Apple was key in reducing the size of SIM cards with Micro-SIM cards introduced in the original iPad. The iPhone 4 (2010) was the first smartphone to use a micro-SIM, and the iPhone 5 (2012) was the first device to use a nano-SIM.

5. Fingerprint Scanners

Fingerprint Scanners

The first mobile phones with a fingerprint scanner were the Toshiba G500 and G900 in 2007. In 2012, Apple acquired AuthenTec, a fingerprint reader and identity management company. As this technology evolved phones were created that incorporated ultrasonic fingerprint scanning using a mobile technology called Qualcomm that enables more accurate and potentially “through the screen” fingerprint recognition.
