Many features within the device enable the users to capture different modes of pictures and later edit them to obtain the desired image without depleting the image quality, only adding to the list of fun things that your phone allows you to do.

Some deficiencies in the current day mobile phone

The handsets today although have had a lot of advancements in them in contrast to the pastwith respect to the overall requirement of the modern day users, there are still some aspects in the line of flagships which have not been able to live up to the expectation of the smartphone users.

The first feature on the list is the camera performance, which although has seen an immense leap from previously low grade camera optic to specialized lens and camera module, there are some problems which still persist in the current camera in the devices. Problems like- focus shift, color representation and low light performance have yet to be perked up in the flagship devices of today’s generation. When it comes to camera in the new smartphones, the struggle to achieve perfection is evident as it is difficult to achieve decent performance in all the aspects of photography. Attributing lot of features in the camera makes the camera module bigger which conflicts with the ergonomic design of the handset, the trending shape and size of the device. The lack of integration of lens also hinders in the process of capturing images at distance without losing details and resolution of the image.

Battery in the latest smartphones has been rather disappointing as the devices have been powerful and drains battery quicker than ever. The failure to provide sufficient backup to the device has been troubling the users as the powerful processors and the high resolution display panels drain the battery quickly. Larger battery results in the increase in the size of the device hindering the idea of sleek look. Also, gaming and operation time also gets reduced with insufficient battery. Moreover, irreplaceable battery provisioned in almost all the phones can become a problem should there be any defect in the battery or if and when the user would like to have an extra battery that can be pre charged and replaced once the initial one dies out. A bump up in the battery capacity is needed and also I/O should also be light which enable the user to operate the device for longer period of time with software configuration and integration for battery saver.

Storage and data transfer is another issue which has served a lot of inconvenience to the users. Although, the storage unit has been expanded to 128 GB and higher, it is limited to a few models while the rest continue to suffer with limited storage. The smartphones have been the media hub as the pictures, music and the videos are stored in the device along with the applications and the system software taking up more space upon every update. Cloud storagehas managed to become a solution, albeit to some extent.File transfer and mirroring the display is not always problem free,especially when done wirelessly. Almost all new devicesare equipped withWi-Fi direct and NFC which although comes in handy does not support various devices. Hence a standardized medium of transfer is needed for efficient and easy data transfer from one device to another.

Clicking the best pictures from your smartphone

Many users believe that the key to better picture is having the best camera phone. Is that really the case? Even so, the matter of having the best camera optics in a device is completely subjective. However, there are some techniques with which the users can ensure the pictures they take are satisfactory if not impressive. A heads up though, these techniques are useless in the case of bad camera optics and software processing and is completely relevant only to flagship devices and some of the midrange phones competing with their predecessors.

The first trick in the book is removing the auto mode of the devices camera interface. In many cases, the auto mode could prove effective in the capturing of pictures which the users might be fond of, but actually the camera determines all the aspects like ISO sensitivity (light sensitivity) & white balance which means that it could either be hit or miss. Turning off auto mode allows the users to click image with the provision of tuning all the settings in the interface like ISO, white balance, brightness and HDR (High Dynamic Range) i.e. the difference between the lightest light and the darkest dark you can capture in a photo

The users can change the individual settings themselves and click the picture when they feel that the tuned setting matches the desired results.

Many of the users might not know the essence of gridlines in their smartphones which has probably been the case why many users have not been setting their camera in the format. The division of the interface with gridlines (three division horizontally & vertically) is useful as the popular belief and a fact is that the alignment of the object targeted in the intersection of these gridline help develop a balanced pictures and makes the interaction with the image free.

Zooming in on the camera and capturing the image is not the proper way in obtaining the best pictures. Zooming in, decreases the details in the image which would mean compromising on the quality of the pictures. So, it would be appropriate to click pictures from less distance to the object or even edit the pictures later which would still maintain the quality of the image with enough details captured. Zooming in should be avoided as far as possible. Macro feature in smartphone cameras has been helping in creating pictures with selective focus which is considered as one of the best way to capture stunning images. Macro allows the users to focus on a definite object which is overlying certain massive background. This helps in creating contrast between the object and the background and also allows in capturing of details of the object in front of the camera.

Latest phones have introduced many new and advanced features which can be utilized by the users in their desire for capturing innovative and unconventional images. Many features like panorama helps capture panoramic view around the user, HDR tone helps in capturing decent pictures during low light or darkness, intense scenes. Filters allows the images taken to be processed which helps in creating tint, effects and virtual textures in the image and so on. In this way, users can completely utilize the camera on their device and tune in and adjust to obtain the best image.
