Im Frustrated, and the new Launches are taking it higher.
The Companies are just playing numbers. They offer MORE megapixels, Core, Nodes, GB/MB, Memory, GHZ, and so on. In Numbers that is. I am perplexed how the Tech today has gone from bad to worse.
Tech and Machinery was invented to make our lives easier, To make us more productive and to save time. Where is that Spirit now? It has turned into a Mad race for Numbers and specs.
Take this for an example- Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus - Full phone specifications
OCTA Core... KEWL. This has more than twice (4 times for us poor souls on dual core) the cores compared to laptops out there. Double The screen resolution than most mainstream laptops and bunch of sensors more than NASA Mars Rover.
Nice ? NOT!
The battery is only 2000 mAh. Companies are racing like rabid dogs to offer more and more cores in their mobiles, But is there any one Android phone that can last a week or more on single charge?
Is there a phone that offers decent net connectivity in Villages and Hills?
Is there a Phone thats Most practical and time saving?
Any Mainstream Phone that can stand Dropping From hands, Scracthes Dust etc?
And now there is fad of those stupid Mirco SIMs. Then nano Sims. Please be aware that our hands are not getting any smaller and our spectacles are not getting any larger.
Here's more- Buyer's guide: Suggest gaming laptops within Rs 40,000 - The Times of India
Take a look at these.
Display? HALF HD. My 16k Phone's got FULL HD. Look at what Horrible PPi they offer. We could actually make out pixels on these ones.
Cores? 4. No Thanks, My Phone has 8.
Price? 40k! NO WAY! My 16 k phone has more Spec wise and Practically wise.
Where have modern laptops gone? Laptops are meant to be humle beings for long term, Long session use like Writing Rants and articles, Surfing, Keying codes, programming, learning and more. Actually the modern laptop has fallen to the dogs BOTH SPEC WISE and PRACTICALITY wise. How many Laptops actually have backlit keyboards to ease stress at dim Hours?
How many laptops offer Full day battery?
How many laptops don't heat up your jewels and thighs like mad?(so you can father healthy children)
How many laptops start like a Bulb (I mean,Press button and BOOM... comes desktop)
How many laptops have built in 3G/4G Sim Slots so we can surf without ugly dongles?
How many Laptops offer Anti-reflective Screens to Make your eyes last longer and healthier?
Not many. And Im NOT happy.
The Things that SHOUD have gone standard (All day battery, Water/Dust protection, Scratch protection, Anti Glare display) Have stayed for a niche few. and the Things we DON'T need (Oct core Proc for instance) and becoming the norm.
Wrong, very wrong.
