Mobile phones are not evil, we use them everyday to watch youth, to communicate with people, to be entertained,to discover new things discover new ways of having fun but we never questioned how they do what they do until recently. This essay looks at whether or not mobile phones are good things or bad but in the end concludes that they are great. Mobile phones are not evil and the invasion of our privacy as they transmit data to agencies is not something to be scared of if you have nothing to hide. But first what is data?
Data on mobile devices is binary which consists of Is ND So and is transmitted to mobile devices, agencies and network towers. Governments can collect data from the corporations which own the services which people use on their mobile devices. Governments can request data from mobile devices which means that nothing is truly private as eventually all data will be collected by the government. However there are certain services that can protect mobile data. One of them is per app VPN or per app virtual private network which can send a data signal per app and confuses the services which try to track your location.
A equidistant of VPN are that good quality VPN cost money. Another is data encryption, encryption is when data is encrypted by software and jumbled up and sent to the recipient which can then decrypt it and find out the message. The disadvantage of this is that the partner who you send data to needs to know the code for example A can represent B and so on so EDGING would mean HELLO. There are more simple ways of protecting mobile devices such as using passwords or postcodes which can go a long way to protecting your phone.
Mobile phones have many features which make many peoples lives better, including features such as voice commands, which can tell the phone what to do based on what you say, for example “K Google, Send me a reminder for tomorrow dentist appointment at pm”. There are many other software features like Multi window mode and immersion mode. Additionally there are hardware features such as a higher resolution display, a bigger display, a phone designed to withstand severe damage. Now that we’ve discussed what they help us do the question is what phone is right for you.
All phones have a compromise in one way or another. All phones have a purpose, a target audience. I want a phone that receive all the latest updates from Google and yet is an aesthetically pleasing phone which is ergonomic and is at an appropriate price range. In addition to that the perfect phone for my WOUld be a phone with a screen size not too big such as 4-4. 7″ and other things such as having a Snapdragon 800/801 or Oxygen 5 ACTA. There are some specialist phones designed for people with disabilities.
These phones often contain features such as a high resolution display, voice commands, a rugged shell for people with arthritis and scaling of the operating system, such as in windows which allows everything to be made bigger as the percentage gets bigger . The options for scaling are 100%, 125%, 150% and 200%. These phones also are marketed at people with bad eyesight and no eyesight. Next I will talk about the radio wave technologies which makes phones able to call people, send MS, SMS and go online. The technologies include GSM which allows users to just call people.
There were other technologies such as GAPS and EDGE which only enhanced the quality of calls and did not allow for MS, SMS or the internet. G changed all that which allowed access to the internet due to the higher bandwidth required for it. After that there was High Speed Package Access+ which allowed for up to double the transfer rate of G, the latest package release is also referred to as “true G”. Then there was G Long Term Evolution which Was a bit slower than true G but allowed for a longer range.
After that there was G LET-A which was the first mobile broadband standard to become competitive with Wife as it provides 1 0 times the transfer rate of G LET however a downside to G LET-A is that it is only available to people living in Asia as it would cost a fortune to implement in US ND Europe as many cell towers would be needed and because it is a brand new technology it would cost a fortune and not nearly all phones would benefit from this because they don’t have the required wireless receiver.
There are plenty of ways of connecting to other devices and sharing information across multiple devices. One of those is Bluetooth, a power efficient method of sending data even though it may take a while. Another method is mobile broadband which was discussed in the previous paragraph. One of the downsides is the battery drainage as the faster the technology the ore battery life it consumes form your phone with G using 25%-30% less battery life than G LET.
Lastly there is Wife, which uses radio waves clocked at 2. GHz and in some cases as well with GHz. It uses far less battery life than the others mentioned which is why some people con next to Wife when available on their mobile devices. In some areas/locations mobile phones are banned.
