If you haven’t updated your smartphone in the last year or two and haven’t been keeping up with what’s new, then we have two pieces of news for you. The good news is that smartphones haven’t changed radically. The other good news is that, as always, they have become better, there are new technologies. What you should pay attention to when buying a smartphone in 2022 from the ratings and reviews, we tell you in this article.
The eternal struggle is iOS or Android. Nothing has changed in this camp, a third competitive operating system is not expected. As for Google and Apple, they have long been copying chips from each other, so the interfaces and capabilities of the devices are largely similar.
But services and the ecosystem in general are different, and it is not possible to use iCloud from “android”, and services from Google are not smoothly integrated into iOS. You should choose rather out of habit: it hardly makes sense to change your current operating system. And if you do intend to, then buy the newest and, in the case of Android, a powerful smartphone model, so that the transition will not be a disappointment.
The main element with which you will interact, so it is necessary to pay special attention.
Diagonal and resolution
Most models from the mobile phone review today have elongated frameless displays with a diagonal of 6.2-6.7 inches. At the same time, the dimensions of the smartphone body remain at the level of previous models with screens of 4.7-5.5 inches. Screen less than 6 inches only the most budget models, or flagship format mini. Most of the top models with a price of 100 thousand rubles or more are going up to 7 inches. It will not be possible to find a powerful phone with conventional frames at the top and bottom, if you are used to them.
The race for better resolution is over. The gold standard is Full HD with the prefix “+” as the screens have become more elongated. FHD+ looks great on all diagonals, from 5 to 7 inches. Some flagship models have a higher resolution, QHD + and similar formats, but they do not give a striking advantage in image quality.
Type of matrix
Currently, there are two main types of matricesin the latest smartphone review – OLED/AMOLED and IPS. TN, TFT and LTPS screens are quite rare. Organic diode displays OLED/AMOLED are characterized by high brightness, contrast, rendering speed, as well as lower power consumption. Of the drawbacks – imprecise color reproduction in the models of simpler and PWM – the screen starts to flicker when you reduce brightness, and it causes discomfort for some users. IPS matrix features more natural color reproduction, they are cheaper and more durable, but in 2021 their destiny – the middle and lower price range of devices. Flagships with IPS can be counted on the fingers of one hand. All modern iPhones have switched to OLEDs and most devices priced from 30,000 rubles.
Around this parameter from the new smartphones review unfolds almost the main race characteristics of the past two years. The standard screen refresh rate – 60 Hz, that is every second the image on the screen has time to change 60 times. This is enough for comfortable work with the interface, watching videos and playing games. But if you increase the refresh rate, then in dynamic scenes the picture becomes smoother. For example, fonts and images remain readable when scrolling through websites and social media feeds. In games with this technology, you can also get an advantage.
