Top 4 smartphones nowadays

No doubt about the fact that today we exist in a smartphone world rather than an e-world. Yes, you may think that it is a common thing to hear, but what if I tell you that a recent research revealed that about 173 million people living in the United States use their smartphones to communicate with friends and peers, increase their productivity with user-oriented apps, and surf the internet. Evidently, 173 million is a huge figure, which implies that smartphone manufacturers have a huge market, not only in the US, but all over the globe.

Considering such a demand for the smartphones, manufacturers continue to launch highly sophisticated smartphones, which makes it a touch difficult for the user to pick one among all the available choices. Below I have compiled a description of 4 smartphones, which deserve to be ranked as the best smartphones in the market today.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge:
Undoubtedly, Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is the most sophisticated Android Kit-Kat phone launched by any mobile phone company, as it combines a number of very useful features in it, such as a 5.6 inches display and a bent screen. Despite having a bent screen, it is a very slim smartphone, making it a very attractive choice from the aesthetic point of view. The cell phone has a 13 MP secondary camera, an internal hard drive of 32 GB/64 GB, and has a RAM of 3 GB, which certainly makes it a best choice in the contemporary smartphone market.

iPhone 6 Plus:
Apple has always been the market leader, and yet again it has not disappointed its users with its latest smartphone release iPhone 6 Plus. A large HD screen of 5.5 inches, packed with all the attractive ‘Apple’ features, will certainly let you enjoy an ultimate smartphone experience. 64-bit A8 chipset makes it possible for you to talk continuously for a period of 24 hours, or keep it aside for 16 days. Yet, the battery cannot be removed from the cell phone. An iSight Camera of 8 MP is another attraction for the users around, which also integrates Apple’s new face detection features, which will certainly enhance your photo session experience. No more 32 GB memory edition, but this time Apple has introduced 64 GB and 128 GB versions. Besides the fact that the battery is non-removable, another thing which has not changed is that you cannot install any third party app on your device such as a cell phone monitoring application, productivity apps, and security apps.

Samsung Galaxy A7:
A perfect package for any user of the contemporary age, Samsung Galaxy A7 is launched in a metallic case, and claims to fulfill all the modern day needs such as entertainment, communication, socializing, and much more. The user experience increases greatly with an HD screen of 5.5 inches, which displays content on a resolution of 720x1280 pixels. What makes is a must try gadget is its Quad core processor, 13 MP camera, 16 GB hard drive with a micro-SD slot, and 2GB of RAM. Such statistics clearly show how fast the processing speed of the smartphone is, which may be called as the best among the lot.

Lenovo Vibe Z 2 Pro
One of the latest releases made by Lenovo, Vibe Z2 Pro is a very stylish and sleek smartphone, and the feature which make it prominent are its photographic possibilities, which richly add to the user experience. Snapdragon 801 processor, a 6-inch screen, screen resolution of 2560x1440 pixels, are some of its highly advanced features, which give a rich experience to the user whether it is about viewing photos and videos or playing games from the Play Store. 7.7 mm thickness is ideal for most users, which also makes it very convenient to carry along. Previously, there were some issues in the preceding smartphones launched by Lenovo regarding battery consumption, but Vibe Z2 Pro claims to give you a talk time of about 45 hours with a 4500mAh power bank.

If you are one of the million die hard fans of the iOS, then iPhone 6 Plus is certainly a best choice for you, which surely combines all the advanced features in a single package. However, in case you are addicted to the Play Store and want extreme processing speed, then Samsung Galaxy Note Edge or Samsung Galaxy A7 may serve to be your pick. And in case you are a selfie-addict, then do not wait and instantly buy Lenovo Z 2 Vibe Pro.

What's in Store for the Technological Future of Dentistry?

For many people, going to the dentist is something they wish to avoid. Usually, this is due to the idea they will experience pain or discomfort during their procedure. However, as technology continues to evolve within dentistry, various new equipment and techniques are being introduced to allow a patient's experience to be much easier than in years past.
mrtechpathi_whats_in_store_for_the_technoligical_future_of_denstistry

Laser Dentistry
Considered a breakthrough because it allows for a much less invasive procedure, laser dentistry makes a visit to a dental office much more relaxing for almost any patient. According to
Dr. Knebel Murray, it is used in such procedures as the removal of benign tumors and cold sores, as well as decay removal and helping to regenerate damaged nerves, it results in a shortened and virtually painless healing period for the patient. A welcome advancement for many dental procedures.

Air Abrasion
A great advancement in dentistry, air abrasion can now take the place of a dental drill in many procedures. Allowing dentists to remove decayed teeth without using a local anesthetic, air abrasion can treat cavities by using pellets of air and aluminum oxide to make the procedure quicker and much less painful.

NTI-tss Device
Used with patients who suffer from migraine headaches or TMJ, this device can be custom-designed and molded to fit a patient's teeth. By doing so, it eliminates the need for invasive surgery and eliminates much of the pain associated with these disorders.

CAD/CAM
Often thought of being used only in engineering or construction, CAD/CAM technology has made its way into the dental office and has led to many improvements in a
number of dental procedures. With its ability to provide very accurate designs of items that need to be constructed, this technology is being used in dental labs to design and construct dental bridges, crowns, veneers, and other items. The major advantage to using this technology is it allows dental technicians to build dental restoration devices that more closely resemble the look and feel of natural teeth.

Digital Photography
By using specialized digital photography software, dentists and NW Calgary dental Clinics can now show patients who will be undergoing complex procedures such as full mouth reconstructions, what they will look like after the procedure is completed. This helps to eliminate unrealistic expectations while at the same time providing peace of mind to patients who will naturally be nervous prior to their surgery.

As these and other technologies are developed and introduced to dentists, patients undergoing everything from simple tooth fillings, to complex oral surgeries will no doubt benefit in the years ahead.

Google Chrome’s new update protects users from unintentional downloads

Google’s web browser Chrome accounted for about 20% market share in August 2014, during a time where other browsers were creeping up on their own percentage. Updates for the browser have remained rather quiet for the past few months until this week when Lucas Ballard, a software engineer for Google announced that a new update to an existing feature has been rolled out to protect users from harmful downloads.

Safe Browsing, a feature introduced by Google back in 2011 was created to protect users from malicious downloads that they might be tricked into. The update released this week emphasizes the feature, providing users with a new warning that notifies users that:
“Attackers on (URL) might attempt to trick you into installing programs that harm your browsing experience (for example, by changing your homepage or showing extra ads on sites you visit).”

This notification, hard to not notice due to a completely red screen that will take over your browser, will also let the user dig further into details that explain why the targeted website has been flagged.

Improved search results

Along with the Safe Browsing update, Ballard also  wrote in his blogpost  that new parameters have been created in Google’s search algorithm that will prevent sites with malicious malware and other harmful programs from showing up in results at all.
On top of that, the post also said that they have started disabling Google ads that will lead users to websites with unwanted software.

These updates will have no effect to vast majority of webmasters and digital marketers who are currently maintaining their websites. With that said, it is highly advisable for webmasters to do an analysis of all links on their websites to make sure that none of them are pointing to sites that Google is currently targeting.

Google takes unwanted software extremely seriously, and the policy regarding this software can be viewed on the profile section of their website.
This move could likely be the first of a few (or many) in 2015, as the search engine giant continues to provide the cleanest results for its users.

Technology Tricks: What Your Business Should Consider in 2015

Are you looking to improve your company's bottom line in 2015? There are many technology tricks you can use to separate yourself from the pack and distinguish yourself within your specific industry.

Upgrade Your Credit Card Equipment
Sometimes when you think about technology, you fail to think about what's right in front of you: your financial transactions. A sluggish or outdated credit card system can vastly reduce your company's productivity. Remember that delayed transactions don't just eat up time during the day, they can also frustrate your customers. New
credit card terminals can now integrate directly into your accounting software solutions with the credit card reader, to improve your accountant's accuracy.


mrtechpathi_technology_tricks

Automate Your Scheduling
Do you regularly take bookings or appointments? Consider automating your scheduling through a website. If you hire independent contractors, this is even better; you can put their schedules in their control and no longer need to manage hours. Allowing for online appointments does two things: it encourages people to book, and it reduces your overall administrative time.

Move Towards VoIP Solutions
It's time to finally make the
switch to VoIP; VoIP is rapidly becoming the preferred telecommunications solution. VoIP telephones work just like regular telephones except they use Internet connections rather than telephone connections. They are easier to customize, more versatile, cheaper, and in areas where the Internet access is stable they can also have just as much up time.

Go Mobile
Cloud solutions have made it easier than ever for businesses to go mobile. Having mobile access to a company's file network and data makes it far easier for employees to manage their work while they're on the go. Going mobile also opens the door for telecommuters, allowing you to source work from anywhere in the globe while paying highly competitive rates. 

Take a Look at the Big Data
Now that big data is becoming easier than ever to analyze, you might want to take a look at yours. By collecting
information about your customers, sales, transactions and inventory, you can reduce your inventory waste, boost your sales, and eliminate overhead. "Big data" is really just a collection of information that can be reviewed to determine patterns in buyer behavior and business performance; it can be used for almost anything you can imagine.

These are just a few examples of how to make your business more streamlined. Consult with your IT director to find out more. There are many seminars throughout the year that will update you on the newest cutting-edge technology and opportunities.

"This one is 4 years old and I guess most of you must have seen it but I'm still fascinated by it.." comments one viewer of this video.  This video was uploaded to youtube on 18 Mar 2009, almost 5 years back.  This video shows that there is no end for human imagination and what human can do in near future. Imagine how many jobs will be created in near future.
mrtechpathi_amazing_microsfot_video_a_sustainable_future

I am not sure how many years or how many decades it take to achieve this concept desings to reality. If it becomes real soon, we will be the luckiest people to enjoy the technology. Few may think they are luxuries but remember, "Today's luxuries are tomorrows necessities".

I am feeling lucky to be born in this technology age where we  use mobile phones for keeping in touch with family and friends. But I feel the future generations are the luckiest to enjoy this technology future. Good luck Microsoft !!!

Enjoy this video and shed your comments.

The Latest in Prosthesis Technology and What's Changing

We are living in exciting times. Although no one wants to think about losing a limb because of an accident or disease, today's patients have more options than ever when it comes to prosthesis. Technology has given us some wonderful advancements, including new technology in the following areas.

Innovative Materials
Wearing a prosthetic device used to be extremely uncomfortable, and there is certainly an adjustment period when anyone is using a new prosthesis. However, today's devices are made of materials that can increase both comfort and usability. According to
Noyes Knee Institutes, a knee surgery clinic in Ohio, carbon fiber is now used to fill a foot prosthesis. This material mimics the materials inside a human foot, so it makes the wearing experience more life-like for the user. Titanium is often used to create limbs that are very durable, even under heavy usage for athletes using prosthesis.

Improved Technology
When you think of technological advances, you likely picture the latest features on your tablet or smart phone. These advances are great, but today's newest technologies are also being used in prosthesis.
You might be surprised to find that Bluetooth technology is no longer just for phones or music devices. Instead, it has actually been built into prosthetic legs, arms and more. The Bluetooth technology allows each leg to communicate with the other, so the wearer can enjoy a more natural stride. In addition, improved technology makes it easier to update the software as the patient continues to heal or his specific needs or goals change.

Muscle Reinnervation
Thanks to Targeted Muscle Reinnervation, or TMR, some lucky patients around the globe are learning how to control their prosthetic devices just by using their minds. You might think that this sounds like something out of the latest science fiction movie, but over 30 people are already using TMR technology.
Ryan Blanck, who practices at the
Center for Prosthetics and Orthotics at Brooke Army Medical Center
, has pioneered this technology, and over half of TMR wearers around the world have been fitted by him.

Prosthesis technology continues to improve, so science will be there to assist those injured patients who need it the most. With these new technologies more and more people are able to live the lives they want and even go beyond with the added technology. We’ll be looking forward to what other inventions come out of this field.

A year in review: Top 5 Smart Phones of 2014

Due to the wide variety of smartphones available, you can easily choose the one that suits your preference. For techies this debate can start a brawl, “which was the best smartphone of 2014?” However we must pay tribute to the greats of the year gone by.   

Here is a list of five top smartphones of the year 2014:

Apple iPhone 6 & 6 Plus

Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are no doubt the top phones of the year 2014. Many people bought iPhone 6 plus with the intention of returning it after trying it for a week or so. Most of them ended up keeping it after using it for a week. Apple’s iPhone 6 plus is not suited for every person especially for those who do not like to carry big phones. 
mrtechpathi_iphone6_and_iphone_6_plus

Although, many people changed their mind and changed their wardrobe and that was just for keeping iPhone 6 plus in their pockets. Rest of the people bought iPhone 6. Both these phones have excellent quality cameras. Apple’s iPhone 6 plus came with extra optical image stabilization and storage capacity. 

These two phones were the most expensive phones of the year 2014. They come with the price tag ranging from $649 to $949. In case of two year contract you can get them for $199 to $499. If you are a frequent user of a smartphone then this price is easily justified for such a flawless smart phone.

2. Sony Xperia Z3

Sony Xperia Z3 is an amazing water proof phone with excellent camera quality. Its processor is quite fast with 32 GB storage capacity. The screen is 5.2 inches with 1920 X 1080 display. The audio experience is great due to its active noise cancelling buds. It comes with a price tag pf $630.
mrtechpathi_sony_xperia_x3

3. New Moto X & Droid Turbo

Moto X is no doubt the best Android phones of the year 2014. The best thing about this phone is that you can make many changes in it according to your taste. You can also order it with black lather. In fact you have many different choices of colors to choose from. It also comes with anexclusive carbon fiber back. 

Although Motorola advertises that its battery last for two long days but due to the high resolution display it stays charged for less than two days. It is very affordable phone as the price ranges from $99 to $499 only.

4. Samsung Galaxy Note 4

People fell in love with Galaxy Note phones. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is no exception. People usually complained about the plastic frame in the previous models of Galaxy Note. Samsung improved the exterior of Note 4 by changing its frame to metallic. This beautiful phablet comes with S pen. If you like using S pens then this is the most suited smart phone for you.
mrtechpathi_samsung-galaxy_note_4

5. Google Nexus 6

Google Nexus 6 couldn’t meet the demands of people as the availability lasted for just a few minutes. Many people couldn’t get their hands on this device. This device comes with a large screen of 5.92 inches.       The 32 GB model comes with a price tag of $649 and the 64 GB model comes with a price tag of $699.
mrtechpathi_google_nexus_6

We'd also like to give a honorable mention to the Xiaomi Redmi Note which although only available in China is a real gem of the smartphone. Xiaomi  might be a long way behind Apple and Samsung , but if we do a best Smartphone’s list in 2015 we expect them to feature heavily.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs iPhone 6 comparison

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and iPhone 6 are definitely the top most smartphones of 2015. Let’s compare the specs of both the phones to find out which one is better.


mrtechpathi_samsung_galaxy_note_4_vs_iphone_6_comparision

mrtechpathi_samsung_galaxy_note_4_vs_iphone_6_comparision


Price and UK availability:

The price of 32 GB Galaxy Note 4 is dropped to £578 and it would continue to drop more. There is no 32 GB iPhone so we cannot compare it with the 32GB Samsung Note 4. The 16 GB model of iPhone costs £539 and the 64 GB iPhone model costs around £619. Do not expect the price of the iPhone to go down unless the new iPhone 7 comes to the market. 

The other option to buy cheaper iPhone is to either get a secondhand phone or to get the refurbished one. You can easily increase the storage space in a Note 4 as it supports micro SD card up to 128 GB. Unfortunately, this option is not available in the iPhone 6 so think hard which model to buy if you are interested in buying an iPhone 6. 

If you are looking to buy a note 4 then do keep in mind the price of 128 GB SD card but the good news is that it won’t get as expensive as an iPhone 6. You can buy both the phones on contracts, although purchasing them without a contract is a cheaper choice in the long run.

Design and Build:

Apple’s iPhone 6 plus has a bigger screen than the iPhone 6. Although many Apple fans are not comfortable with using bigger screens and for them using a Note 4 is out of question as it is even bigger than iPhone 6 Plus.

 Apple gave the option of tapping the home button twice which helps in bringing the upper half Apps of the iPhone 6 down. This benefits the user to use iPhone 6 with one hand. Although Note 4 gives the option of multi window but even then it is not possible to use it with one hand.

Apple’s iPhone 6 is definitely a better looking phone with its metal build. The phone is much lighter than the Note 4 and it is very easy to handle. On the other hand Samsung Note 4 looks quite cheap in front of iPhone 6 as it has only metallic corners.

Simon Swift, Director at  SwiftContractPhones.com  believes that pitting the Note 4 against the iPhone 6 is a non contest - "As a former iPhone fan I don't think it is anywhere near the Galaxy Note 4 in terms of specs or performance. Samsung's effort beats it in all areas and I think the only valid reason for choosing an iPhone 6 instead of the Note 4 is if you're not a fan of the phablet screen size."

Display:

Samsung Galaxy 5.7 inch display is excellent for playing games, watching videos, browsing videos or working. It would not be wrong to say that Apple’s display quality comes second in number and Note 4 definitely wins as far as display is concerned.

Hardware and Performance:

Both the smartphones have a very powerful hardware and there is no comparison of other smartphones with these two phones.

Connectivity and Extras:

Note’s NFC is definitely more beneficial than Apple’s NFC as Apple is offering it for only Apple Pay. Both the phones supports 4G and WIFI. They both have finger print scanners. Note 4 gets more points with MHL, IR blaster and Samsung’s download booster.

Cameras:

Both the phones have excellent photo results. Apple’s iPhone uses digital image stabilization whereas Note 4 uses Smart OIS. Although the front- facing camera of Samsung Note 4 is better as it also supports wide Selfie mode.

Battery Life:

Note 4 Battery is no doubt much better than Apple’s iPhone 6 battery. If you use iPhone 6 very carefully then the battery could last for a day. Whereas Note 4 battery lasts for more than a day even if you use it heavily.

Verdict:

Samsung Note 4 is definitely a better choice if you have no problem in lifting bigger phones. Although iPhone 6 build quality is much better than the Note 4 but overall Note 4 is a much better option.

Tail for your smart mobile

For those who watch Movies, Television series on your mobile, this post is for you.

Many people including me have tendency of watching movies on my iPhone or any other smartphone which supports video streaming services like Netflix. A movie lasts at least for an hour. Holding an iPhone  which is 137grams for an hour is a pain.
mrtechpathi_mobile_tail

mrtechpathi_mobile_tail

mrtechpathi_mobile_tail

So, I was looking around for a case which is light weight and can help to support in watching these videos for an hour long. I was interested in a simple design which doesn't add much weight to my iPhone. I found none for a while.

For quite a while, I pondered myself saying that iPhone is designed in such a way that no case on it looks good. It looks fantastic with its bear body.  I am sure most of you agree with me. Ofcourse, other mobiles looks fantasitc too.

mrtechpathi_mobile_tail
At last, I bumped up into a site where they were selling Mobile Tail which looks like a tail of animal. Its a simple and quite interesting design. Looks designer feel their mobiles as pets. They have derived the concept of tail from this.

It's too flexible that it can hold your mobile vertically or horizontally and the angle can be easily changed by attaching the tail on a different spot on the back side.

ckie state  "A portion of the profits from selling this product will be donated to an animal preservation group".

Not but not the least, whats the length of the tail ? 

Its Length is 125 mm.  If you are interested, buy this on ckie.
