Today increasing number of people, especially young people are extremely interested in mobile technology industry and they are really anxious to be aware of every innovation in this field. Whenever a new model is introduced, they are willing it to get it and enjoy all the new features it offers. I have so many friends who check about the latest news in this field not every day, nut I can say even every hour and minute, and when they see there is something new, they just rush to mobile centers and buy or exchange the “old” model with the latest one. Those people are aware of all diverse features the latest models can offer, sometimes they also know what new features companies have announced for the coming models. Yeah, it's really good to have such friend, if you decide to buy a mobile phone! This mobile addiction is becoming more and more actual, as it is completely a new world and its diverse and advanced features attract more and more people.
In fact, mobile technology is very dynamic, as the number of mobile providers is increasing very quickly in the world and there is an intense competition in the market, that's why new models are introduced every month, even every day.
Here is the list of the top 10 mobile phone brands in 2014 basis the number of shipments that have happened in first 2 quarters (http://www.mbaskool.com/fun-corner/top-brand-lists/9865-top-10-global-mobile-phone-brands-in-2014.html):
- Lenovo & Motorola
Let's check the latest models offered by the top brands on 2014
There is fascinating news for those who are crazy about iPhones. Apple is expected to release the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 around September of 2014. It will include a larger, redesigned form factor with 4.7" and 5.5" diagonal screens. The 4.7" model will be launch first around September, with the 5.5" model following later. Along with a larger screen, the iPhone 6 may feature a durable sapphire display in at least some models and it may adopt slimmer bezels and a thinner chassis. The larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 might also incorporate Optical Image Stabilization as a differentiating feature from the 4.7-inch iPhone 6. It is also possible that the larger iPhone 6 will be the only model with a 128GB storage capacity.
HTC One M8
HTC announced a new version of the HTC One — codenamed M8 — in late March 2014 in New York City and London. The overall look of the Android smartphone is in the same vein of the 2013 model, with stereo speakers flanking the display and providing the excellent "Boomsound" experience.
The new HTC One launches with Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and an updated version of HTC Sense — Sense 6.0, actually. BlinkFeed — a custom newsreader — is still on board and very much a prominent feature of the new HTC One, and it's gotten some nice visual tweaks. BlinkFeed was one of the more controversial features of Sense 5, since it took over the far left-hand position on the home screen.
The HTC One M8 launched in three colors and two finishes. Gunmetal Gray is the crowning achievement, with the aluminum sporting a brushed finish (which HTC says was not easy to do) and polished to a glossy shine. (Almost too polished, we think.) You also can get it in the same silver as the original HTC One, and also a champagne gold color. Both have the same texture as the 2013 HTC One.
Samsung Galaxy S5
Samsumg Galaxy S5 offers even more advanced features than Samsung Galaxy S5.
The camera has evolved to give clearer, faster snaps. The fitness-tracking abilities of the S5 are enhanced over the Galaxy S4 by packing in a more powerful S Health app and a dedicated heart rate monitor on the rear. A fingerprint scanner adds to the most secure Galaxy phone ever made.
The battery is larger, the screen bigger and brighter, the processor quicker and the design altered.
The spec sheet certainly doesn't let it down: a 2.5GHz quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 2800mAh (removable) battery, 16 / 32GB of memory (with up to 128GB extra through microSD), one of the world's most vibrant screens that's been extended to 5.1-inches and added biometrics.
Sony Xperia Z2
The Sony Xperia Z2 is a high-end Android smartphone manufactured by Sony and released in April 2014. Under the codename "Sirius", Xperia Z2 serves as the successor to the Sony Xperia Z1. Like its predecessor, the Xperia Z2 is water and dust proof with an IP rating of IP55 and IP58. The phone features a new display, a Snapdragon 801 processor and the ability to record 4K videos. The Xperia Z2 also allows removable microSD storage. It was unveiled alongside the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet and the Sony Xperia M2 during the 2014 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, on February 24, 2014, and was first released in Taiwan on March 24, 2014, in Singapore on April 5, 2014 and entered more markets in May 2014. In the United States, the Xperia Z2 will be released in August 2014.Many reviewers praised the phone's screen, camera and waterproof design. Similar to the devices under the Sony Xperia Z series, the Xperia Z2 has an "Omni-Balance", according to Sony, which is focused on creating balance and symmetry in all directions. The phone comes with the same aluminum frame as its predecessor. It also features tempered glass on the front and back with an aluminum power button placed on the right side of the device.
It may seem strange but alongside with those who are obsessed with new mobile models, there are also people who are addicted to their old mobile phones and they are so attached to their mobiles that they are reluctant to choose a new model, even if it can offer so many features and benefits. This is mainly typical of older generation, perhaps the reason is that they get used to their mobiles and find it difficult or just don't wish to learn new things. They treat these mobiles as living beings and wish to use them always. My grandparents also belong to this category of people, when they are used to something they will never get rid of them even for the best model with various advanced features. But I know also people, who have tried different models, and use the latest ones, but they still keep their first mobile phone.
As you can see mobile addiction which is very popular nowadays, can have different types.
