ASCORP Smart Tech is here to provide you with exclusive updates from the world of Smart devices and also help you with all those nagging problems you are having with your phone, tablet, PDA, modem etc.

Just describe it on our forum………………and we will take you through the fix!!!

Our world is being quickly transformed into a global village and nothing does that better than the simple and complex but powerful handheld technology devices. If you have been wondering why you should go in for a smartphone, or if are getting the most out of your smart device, then you are definitely at the right place. Follow our blog closely and subscribe to our weekly updates.

The evolution of smart devices has accelerated exponentially since the beginning of this century and this trend continues to grow in significance. Mobility has already become an essential part of our daily lives and the future will certainly bring natural interface between humans and the smart devices that will surrounded them in every environment. Behind this phenomenon is the general desire to not only have easy access to information, but to share that information, to pay for purchases, to access entertainment, to seek products, to buy them and more – and all this just by pushing the buttons on a single, handheld device.

Of course, there is more what we can describe as a smart device than we normally think but it all comes down to the select few that people desire because they make our lives comfortable and simplified. And we know as a fact that mobile phones top that list. Why???

Music, Everywhere

Nothing starts the day off right like the perfect song. For years, we’ve turned to MP3 players to get our musical fixes, but they’re limited to the songs in our libraries. Not only does every smartphone have an MP3 player built in; they also let you supplement your collection with music streaming services. You can listen to a near-infinite number of songs through apps like Spotify, Pandora and iTunes Radio, often for free.

Capture Your Life

Today’s smartphone cameras are almost as capable as dedicated point-and-shoot devices. Some are even more impressive. If you don’t already take it for granted, you might not see the value in being able to shoot crystal-clear photos and on-the-spot video whenever you like. But when you’re spending time with a loved one and suddenly wish you could capture a memory for all time, that smartphone becomes priceless.

There’s an App for Everything

All smartphones come with a series of pre-installed applications to get you started. Their true power and versatility, however, are in downloadable third-party apps. Many are free, and others cost somewhere between $1 and $5, but all open up new uses you might never have thought of. Your smartphone can become a level to keep your pictures straight; an atlas of the world; a viewfinder into all the stars in the sky; or a cookbook with guides to your favorite recipes. If you can imagine it, chances are one of the hundreds of thousands of apps out there will let you do it with your smartphone.

The problem however is that, that sometimes we are unsure which particular brand or model to buy which will suit our needs. Should we opt for Samsung, iPhone, HTC, Nokia, LG, Dell, Sony, Motorolla etc .Which platform is the best whether Apple’s iOS, which runs iPhones, Google’s Android system, Microsoft’s Windows Mobile and Research in Motion’s Blackberry OS

Smartphones: What to Look For

Consider each of the attributes below when you’re making your decision, and you’ll find the process a lot more straightforward:

Operating System

For a lot of people, picking the right smartphone is a matter of picking the right operating system. The smartphone’s operating system is the platform it uses to run various programs. While they can all pretty much connect you to the Web, e-mail, phone calls and texts, each has its own strengths and weaknesses.

If you plan on using a lot of apps on your smartphone, you might want to avoid getting a Blackberry. The Blackberry OS is great for using e-mail and Web browsing, but it doesn’t have as many apps as other OS. If you want a lot of apps, then IOS is your best bet. The Apple app store is the largest in the world. The downside of Apple OS is that it’s only available on Apple’s iPhones. Android-powered phones are quickly making up ground against Apple where apps are concerned, and the Android operating system is available on a range of phones, making it easier to find one that fits your life exactly. A Windows mobile phone is good to get if you plan on doing a lot of work on your phone. Since it runs a mobile version of Windows, which you may already have running on your computer, it can easily let you see and work on spreadsheets and documents right on your phone.

Design

Good design is all about how a phone feels in your hand, and how well it reflects what you want to do with it. A lot of that’s up to the individual – after all, if portability and ease of use are important to you, you’d choose a very different phone than if you wanted a multimedia powerhouse that can play movies on a big screen and give you great stereo sound. In general, though, the lighter a phone is, the easier it’ll be to carry around and the more natural it will feel when held against your ear.

Cameras

For many people, the camera is the most important part of any smartphone. If that includes you, you’ll want to consider several factors. A phone’s megapixel count is important – the more megapixels, the bigger and more detailed the image – but it’s not the only spec you should consider. Look at each phone’s aperture size, too. Larger apertures let in much more light, which will give you brighter, more vibrant images. If you’re interested in taking videos with your new smartphone, look at the frame rates you’ll have access to. All of the best smartphones can shoot 1080p video at 30 frames per second, but if you get a phone with a higher potential frame rate, you can shoot video and play it back in slow motion.

Internal Specs

As apps get increasingly complex, having a phone with the speed to handle them can be important. When it comes to a phone’s internal components, bigger numbers are usually better. The important things to consider are the processor speed, Number of Cores, RAM or memory, In-Built storage and expandable storage

If you think you’ll be taking lots of photos and videos and storing plenty of music on your phone, you’ll need internal storage to match. Some devices, such as the iPhone, don’t have expandable storage but come in versions with plenty of space built in. Other phones may have much less built-in storage, but you can buy micro-SD cards and plug them in to expand your drive space.

Smartphones are fantastically powerful computers that travel with you wherever you go. Pretty much everyone needs a cell phone these days, even if it’s just to help them in emergencies. But with the added power of smartphones, that cellular device can turn into an iPod, a camera, a library and so much more, right when you need it.

All in one super Smartphone

At CES 2015, the Utah-based company is hoping to make a comeback with its newest offering, the V2 (pronounced “V-squared”). Though it doesn’t stand out in terms of looks, just imagine every smartphone spec you’ve ever heard of, cram it into a handset, and you’ve got yourself the V2.

The Android 4.4 KitKat device features a 5-inch, 1080p full-HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 that runs edge-to-edge against the bezel. It’s powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor and a 3,100mAh battery that has wireless charging capabilities. As for its storage capacity, it has 3GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. In addition it has two — yes, two — microSD card slots that are expandable up to 128GB (totalling 256GB altogether).

Dart is the world smallest laptop charger

LAS VEGAS — Finsix claims that the Dart is the world smallest laptop charger. And weighing in a just 60 grams, it’s hard to argue. It’s currently available for pre-order, and while $89 seems a bit steep for a replacement power cord, it just might be convenient enough to be worth it.

The Dart can serve up to 65W of power, and is compatible with laptops that have a voltage between 18 and 21V. It’ll also ship with 9 different DC connectors — Finsix calls them “tips” — so there’s a good chance your laptop will be ready to go. Apple’s MacBooks, and the Microsoft Surface aren’t supported, however. And if your laptop has a discrete graphics card you’ll also be out of luck, as those will require more power than the Dart has to offer.
