Of late I have noticed that most of the big players in the smartphone game are releasing new phones with obvious improvements over older models, but lacking any real sanity-smashing game-changing new features.
Some may beg to differ, but I am talking about influential features like these:
- NFC - upon launch it was a biggie, but now this is pretty much a standard;
- Wireless charging - what no cables? How can this be? Very useful indeed;
- Hand gestures / facial recognition type technology that are now present in a lot of high-end smartphones;
- Fingerprint readers - building a seriously solid layer of security into devices that are often full of sensitive info;
