htc_one_s_review_13

HTC is in the race to compete the giant mobile companies, but the handset that HTC offers are tootender, do you get that? No, I mean to say if you throw any cell or it fell by chance you will find only the pieces of broken screen, does it sounds good. Most probably not, well, it’s a different matter; the news is this that HTC has cast its eyes on the new HTC’s plus sized One Max is A 6 inch phablet that is ready to launch in September. The phablet might have something very startling that will really attract the HTC fans.

The approach of HTC:

If we have a look at HTC’s strategy than we will come to know that HTC is only focusing to introduce new Internet Devices only to be in the highlights. But don’t you think by launching so continuously HTC can lose the quality of its devices. Thus compromising on quality for the sake of quantity is what HTC doing right now. This approach might not be last long. On the other hand resources have unveiled some of the facts about HTC One. The resources told that HTC will unveil a giant –sized version of the Falgship HTCone with a 6-inch 1080 display dubbed the one max.

What’s in:

However sources also informed that a small version of HTC one might be on the way of its launch called HTC Mini. Well, we have to see how this Smartphone will get a success in the mobile market. It is expected that Mini HTC is to be launched in July. Although the general specification is not yet so clear, but some specs had been pointed by the resources. The specifications are 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 chip, 2GB of RAM, a 3200mAh battery and either 32GB or 64GB of internal memory. The Smartphone is quite stylish and elegant just like its predecessors the HTC one.

How does HTC can meet the challenges:

845_ipad-el-tablet-de-appleThe device which is still in its developing process, we are unable to know much about it. But the obvious signs are that it might be clo0se to Galaxy Note 3. Many people are expecting that the device might be so elegant and in style. We have seen Samsung tablet, Apple tablet. Now let’s see what should be in store of HTC’s phablet. As we know Samsung has already captured a big share of tech market with its successful Samsung Note series. It’s hard to believe for HTC makers but it’s a fact that HTC fails to capture the market with its 7-inch tablet called flyer. The Flyer can offer input by using stylus cost$80. But this tablet failed to provide the desired result.

Perhaps leveraging the One branding alongside new device sizes will yield better results. Now let’s see what marketing strategy and what specific features HTC will introduce in its next launch HTC plus sized one max 6 inches tablet. HTC after being successful in its Smartphone series has kept pace in tablet market, where Samsung and Apple have their strong hold. It is to see how HTC will overcome these two market players. It is possible only when HTC introduce some outstanding features that are missing in Samsung and Apple. Otherwise it would be an effort that can’t be proved fruitful.

Samsung Gears The Move Of Technology In Pakistan

Samsung gears the move of technology in Pakistan4There was a time when Pakistan was quite a large market for Nokia mobiles. Most of the population was fond of Nokia phone due to their durability and sound features. During that time Iphone Smartphone were sold unofficially in Pakistan at a very large scale. This is a recorded fact that though Apple did not operated in Pakistan locally but still it had a following at a very high level in the country. People used Apple for their smart phone needs and had Nokia as a second phone.

What has gone different with this trend? What has changed the preferences of the people? The answer to these questions can be summed up in only one word that is none other than Samsung. This Japanese company has given a very tough time to its competitors like Nokia, LG, Sony Ericson and most of all, the giant Apple. The question that comes to everybody’s mind is that what different does the new comer did to grasp the attentions of the potential customers?

This question can be answered after taking Samsung achievements into account. Today one can see Samsung dominating the smart phone market as well as phone market for usage as a second option. Some of the reasons why Samsung is dominating the cellular phone market are discussed as under.

Economical pricing

Economical pricing2Samsung technology launched their smart phone at a comparatively less price. This is of the most dominating factor as this country is under developed and everyone cannot afford to have an Apple smart phone. That can also be a reason that people have switched towards smart phone manufactured by Samsung as they provide it on less prices with latest android technology. This is also a reason that today apart from buying new iphone 4s smart phone people have switched towards Samsung galaxy smart phones or towards Used iPhone Smartphones.

Galaxy craze

Samsung galaxy smart phones have outnumbered all other smart phone brands in Pakistan in the ratio of sales. This is a fact as Samsung provides a wide range of galaxy smart phones with different specifications and pricing.

Adequate branding policy

File photograph of models posing with the new Samsung Galaxy S Android smartphone during its launch ceremony at the headquarters of Samsung Electronics in SeoulSamsung has an appropriate branding and promotional policy whenever a new product comes. It advertises its products out n loud to the public emphasizing on the pricing and feature that Samsung is offering. This is not only limited to phone but today Samsung is also featuring is Laptop computer and digital cameras in Pakistan and it is expected that it also would be having a positive response.

Taking these factors under consideration it can be said that in the coming time Samsung will have a much bigger market in Pakistan. In the coming time Samsung will also be having a cool craze of its used products in the market as well. Used Cameras and used computers manufactured by Samsung will also shake the market of cameras and branded computer firms like Dell, HP, ACER and SONY.

The range and pricing smart phones and other phones that Samsung is having at the moment is matchless. Other competitor will have to seriously think about their marketing strategies as today it is not only Samsung with has already threatened their hegemony but Chinese mobile firms are also coming up with many different mobile models over the year. A big example is Q Mobiles Company which is also having a big market in Pakistan.

Pakistan is not a land of smart phones

Pakistan is one of those very few countries who faced Information technology revolution. Today Pakistan’s urban areas are fully equipped with state of the art technology. And every new technology that is being introduced worldwide hits Pakistan as well. Though Pakistan stand out in the race of per capita cell phone usage internationally but when it comes to smart phones Pakistan still lacks the charm. Internationally the boom of smart phones has touched 79% approximately. But Pakistan where approximately 104 million mobile phone connections are active and approximately having the cell phone density up to 65% is still far behind in Smartphone grabs with only 5% density. This low penetration of smart phones across the Pakistan is due to so many factors.

Lack of local carrier’s interest

If we make comparison of Pakistan with any EU country or Britain than there is some enormous price differences between us. Over there all the cell phones are fully adopted by mobile phone carriers and every individual can acquire them on contract basis. An Iphone Smartphone or any of Nokia mobiles cost almost $200 or less, which is approximately 18000 PKR. But here in Pakistan no Smartphone which is 4G and having a latest platform like android, or IOS cost less than 50K. Now that’s a stretch. People do not afford buying brand new smart phones here because they are too expensive, and carriers do not take much interest in this business model as they think that culture in Pakistan does not allow this. Though some companies like Zong, and ufone have taken the first step for this type of cell phone penetration and mobilink also time to time launch different Blackberry models for business class users, but this business model did not had any immense response from public.

No 3G installation

Another big reason for low penetration of smart phones in Pakistan is the lack of 3G networks availability in Pakistan. Most of the smart phones are data centric and give best use with high network data centers. But in Pakistan most of the people haven’t even heard of 3G network and when they grab a cell phone they really don’t know how and why to use it. Though Samsung Mobiles have recently launched a new line of smart phones in Pakistan, and it is also getting subtle response too but in order to increase the numbers it would require more efforts and more time.

Classic culture

Then another factor that is somewhat stopping this smart penetration in Pakistan is lack of interest on touch screens and elegant mobile devices. Well I am talking about majority here, they do not believe on having a cell phone which is not physically very rigid and strong. And the biggest reason of this perception is made by Nokia Mobiles, who were the first market entrants here.
Keeping all these things in mind so many big giants like apple, Vodafone and some other companies have not touched Pakistani market yet and launched here officially. But without any doubt Pakistani market is one of the biggest potential markets for any Smartphone manufacturer. And I am not saying this out of the blue if we look around we would see so many people using iphone, and other smart phones which obviously are unofficial versions but still there is a particular niche market in Pakistan which would love to have more and more smart phone companies coming here.

Trend of using gadgets in Pakistan

I remember the time when newspaper, an old radio, a landline telephone set, and a gigantic TV set which were just able to broadcast national television programs, were the only tools of entertainment available in every household of Pakistan. People use to watch national channels for every purpose like news, entertainment etc. The only channels of communication were landline telephones and post. Radio was the only thing which can play music. And we all were quite happy back then too. But as we all know that time never remain the same. It keeps on changing. But if we talk particularly about gadgets, then time has changed in Pakistan in quite a revolutionary way. Almost every latest gadget and technology is now available in Pakistan. In this article I will talk about the changing trends of using technology in Pakistan and most particularly I will talk about gadgets.

The father of all gadgets

Let’s start with the first gadget, which I would say has proved to be a father of all gadgets. It is none other than Mobile phone. After the technology boom in Pakistan, this gadget has gained the immense popularity. Almost 80% people living in Pakistan’s urban cities are using a mobile phone. Mobile phone has been dedicated as a technology of the decade internationally, and it should be in Pakistan as well. Today, it is the toughest job to identify a single adult or even a teen ager who does not possess a mobile phone. The great contributors in Pakistan’s great mobile revolution are Nokia Mobile, Samsung Mobiles, Sony Ericson, and other companies. The latest mobile phone technology is Smartphone technology. And Pakistan is the most potent market when it comes to smart phones. And this can be witnessed by looking the number of unofficial iphone Smartphone sales all around the Pakistan. It is one of the best selling phones in the history of Pakistan.

Television the most commonly used gadget

Then comes the turn of another famous gadget in Pakistan. Television, which once used to be a big sized machine. But it is now in the smartest shape ever. Statistics tells that more than 70% household in Pakistan are having a television set at their household. This gadget has faced so many revolutions, from simple TV to Plasma, from plasma to LCD, and now from LCD to LED. It is getting slimmer with every passing day. People in Pakistan who do not afford a new LCD and TV buy used LCD or a Used TV, but they do have this technology no matter what and how. Another worth mentioning thing here is that trend in changing technology of a television is also increasing quite rapidly. People who once used to have a television are now having a LCD of minimum a plasma TV.

The others

Then comes other gadgets like gaming devices, Cameras and music players. After the launch of gaming device from big players like Sony and Microsoft the trend of buying gaming device has clearly gone up. Youngsters are buying both portable devices along with classic devices. Music players are another best selling gadget in Pakistan. So many companies like Audionic came into the small, and big sized music players industry, but they haven’t got the desired success because of the officially launched IPOD in Pakistan. Another most widely spread trend is of cameras. After the official launch of Sony, Nikon and canon in Pakistan, this trend seems to be increasing day by day because almost everyone nowadays posses a handheld camera.

We all love Gadgets

We are living in 21st century. A century of technology and rapidity. Whatever we want to do, some kind of apparatus is always there to accompany us. We are surrounded by machines and gadgets. And the best part is we enjoy living in this era. Whatever we do, we don’t feel thrilled until of unless there is some machine or gadget involved in it. We all daily watch TV, we daily use computer, we daily use ovens, etc. So the crux of the story is that we are bundled with machines all around. That shows our unconditional love towards machines. But as I have said that this is 21st century the more we love gadgets the more they are available in market. And sometimes it gets impossible for us to choose between different types gadgets that how to buy them. Here are few tips by using which you can buy the best gadget.

Look inside your pocket:

First thing first, what is the first thing that you consider while buying anything? Yes, that’s price. Because it is directly linked with your budget. You first think that how much you should spend on whatever you are planning to buy. For example you want to buy a
home appliances , and more specifically you want to buy a television. The first thing you should know about is that which brand is coming in your budget bracket. And then you should consider that what that brand is offering. If you are satisfied with the number of offerings. Then it’s the best case scenario. But if it does not then you should see the offering of that brand which comes slightly above your price bracket. And if that’s suits you, you must increase your budget bracket a little. Because it is giving you the value for money. And another tip in this regard is that try to search products online because sometimes you can find best deals on the websites where people buy & sell new and used home appliances , gaming devices, Mobile phone accessories etc.

What people are saying about it?

The other thing while buying a gadget you should consider is the product review. If you have selected a brand or a product out of so many brands you must know that how much people rate it. There is a huge community on internet which works entirely on writing reviews of different gadgets. And the buyer can easily have a very good idea about the product’s features and how those features work by reading the reviews. E.g. if you want to buy a gaming device and you have decided to buy a certain brand you must know that what people are saying about this certain brand. There is another benefit of reading reviews, buyer get to know about the product’s detailed functionality.

Does it have warranty?

The other thing that every buyer should keep in mind is that your gadget must have warranty. Warranty is considered very essential when we talk about gadgets. Sometimes what happened is that we buy a product but after a while it loses its certain functionality. And repairing it locally can snatch its quality and resale value. But if your product is with warranty your product would be repaired by the professional and authorized Lab of the respective company. And your product would not lose its quality, functionality, or resale value. No matter you are buying a new product or a used product always prefers products that have certain warranty to provide you safety.

Do you enjoy watching Television shows?

Since the advent of Television, people have found a new past-time. Gone are the days when they used to sit idle with bored faces, thinking what to do. There are different types of programs being shown on TV, ranging from children programs, news, discussions, dramas, movies and religious programs. Every day we come to know about a new channel, there is so much that a TV bring to our home that there is no point of getting bored anymore!

TV is a mean of entertainment

After doing all her daily household chores, a housewife enjoys watching showbiz news, fashion shows and soaps on her TV. Children can kill their boredom, especially during long summer vacations, by watching their favourite cartoons and other programs like Art Attack, MAD, and FAQ etc. It is not easy for parents to take their children to parks and play lands everyday as they are busy. The law and order situation in the country also discourages many families from letting their children go to parks and play with their neighbours’ children in the street.

TV is a safe mode of recreation for these children, who are tired of doing their homework and learning their lessons. Some of the TV programs are informative; they teach children many things including those that they usually find boring when they read about them in their books. They learn making different crafts and new techniques of art with paper.
Do you have a patient in your house? If yes, than why not bring some comedy movies or tune in to a humorous program so that they can feel better. A patient confined on bed rest often think negative thoughts and feels depressed as they cannot do anything, while being on bed. Watching comedy and humorous programs on relives stress and depression.

People prefer Watching TV than reading a newspaper or magazine

Some conservative people do not like to have TV at their house they prefer to read books, newspapers and magazines, instead of watching TV. I wonder why these people like to read a paper that tells us what happened a day before. TV news are up to date, we get to know about the latest happening on the same day they occur. Is not it nice to watch a live Cricket match or listen to your favourite political leader addressing the public instead of reading briefly about them on newspapers the next day.
This is the reason why the people of the modern era prefer watching TV rather than holding large newspapers in their hands, finding any news that interests them.

How does LCD TV differ from LED TV and Plasma?

Gone are the days when we only hear ‘Television’ or ‘TV’, now there are words like LCD TV, LED TV and also Plasma TV. It is really confusing for many of us. Do you know the difference among these technologies? Let’s us explain all those who often get confused when they go to the market for purchasing Used and New LCD TV Flat Screen for Sell in Pakistan.

A ttraditional used LCD TV sets use compact florescent lamp (CFL) back-lighting while LED TV come with Light Emitting Diode bulbs. LED is thinner, lighter and uses less electricity, whereas, used LCD TV’s fluorescent lamp uses more electricity.

Which TV set is better, LCD or LED?

Do you still have that bulky CRT TV set at your home? If yes, then it is about time that you replace it with LED TV, LED TV, Plasma TV or the latest 3D TV, depending on your affordability. CRT TV are now relics of past as they come with old tech displays and are more harmful to eyes and general health as compared to the high-end technologies of the present age.
LED TV is considered better than the LCD TV sets due to sharper contrasts. The electricity is getting expensive and you cannot power LCD TV with UPS, during the ongoing power outages. Now you must be thinking that LED TV is expensive. Yes, you are right, but you can reduce your expenses by buying a Used TV. LCD TV does not last as longer than an LED TV, so if you want to buy a TV set which will function more than four or three years than go for a LED TV or Plasma TV.
