Smartphones have peaked…

As many of you know I am into smartphones!

It looks like smartphones have reached the peak for now. It will take some serious technology to allow them to reach the next level. This has been a forthcoming event that many in the industry have seen for awhile. If you have bought a good smartphone in the last few years, you have about as good as it will get for awhile…

I have a Wileyfox Swift 2 Plus and it, while being very inexpensive, is the finest phone I have ever owned. I have owned a bunch and my Wileyfox made in Britain is anything and everything I could ask for in a phone…

Therefore, to buy a smartphone nowadays, is only because you want the latest and possibly greatest smartphone. This is why we are seeing Apple and Samsung slipping steadily in advancement. They are running out of tricks to put in such a tiny package…

With even a cheap smartphone having such things as decent cameras and fingerprint startup, nothing is really new and curved screens mean nothing when you are talking on the phone…

There has been some issues that have touched the handheld industry and one is that the tablet has become obsolete. The smart phone in a size of about 5 inch to 5.5 inch has taken over the handheld industry. It does anything that a tablet does and does it better in size, weight and quality. Tablets have become the cassette player of the old days…

I have a very wonderful ASUS tablet and it will even make phone calls, but it is heavy and cumbersome. Thus, it never gets used anymore. I just recharged mine and tried using it for awhile yesterday. Just too heavy and the Wileyfox does more than it does. Yet the ASUS is as fine a tablet as I could ever want…

I guess I am saying that as with everything on earth, everything has its day…

The days of joy with Android and Apple OS has become a boring existence now. I am running Wileyfox Swift 2 plus MIUI 8 Android 6 level. It is as far as I need to go and the desire to go farther is gone. What I see in the newer OS’s is too much control by OS and too much lack of control by the human operating it. I figure that when they wake up and realize that a phone smarter than us is a bad thing, then we may see some changes…

I will not hold my breath…

The link above is to the very best ROM I have found for the device I am using. It simply works and works good…

It does sadden me in that things with cellphones seem to have plateaued. Just as I am saddened about the tablets demise. My suggestion is to get a fantastic deal on a two and or three year old smartphone/tablet collecting dust in the store window and use it. For to, so called upgrade, is not going to do anything but eat your available money for virtually nothing…

My Wileyfox is as good as any Samsung and Apple I have every owned, used and or cared to play with…. I await the next level of technology, just hope I am still alive when we get it… 😉

The smartphone, like cars, have become all the same. They lack personality and I guess that is what interests me. personality…. Svetochka just got a new phone. It is a Samsung and that phone five to ten years ago would have been a smartphone, yet now it is under 3000 rubles and a very good phone. She is happy with it and likes the fact that it is everything she would want, yet in a perfect package for her hand. It has personality for her…
