Smartphones are the advanced and more sophisticated version of standard mobile phones. They are faster in terms of processing power and memory space. You can use the latest SD cards with large disk space on them, e.g. 4GB – 32GB depending on phone model. This storage capability lets you store your video and music collections on your smartphone. You can play videos or listen to music more flawlessly than using older phones because of faster processors embedded on them. Some latest models of smartphones even lets you play a video file while doing something in the background, like sending an email, writing a document, or Internet surfing. Sharing files between smartphones is also a good reason that they are ideal as multimedia devices. With faster Bluetooth technology, you can now send a full length movie in just minutes. Some specific smartphone manufacturers even have their own technology when it comes to sharing files and documents. Easy sharing and access to media files online makes smartphones ideal for entertainment purposes.
Here are some of the reasons smartphones are popularly used as multimedia devices:
Being handy is what makes smartphones ideal for multimedia purposes. You can store your movies or music collection on your smartphone and watch or listen to them later, wherever you may be. You don’t have to worry about boredom anymore, especially if you’re stuck in heavy traffic or sitting idly in a line.
As stated, sharing files is one of the reasons that smartphones are becoming popular in the entertainment arena. You can easily share your video or music either directly to other smartphones or online via social networks for all your friends and relatives to see. On the other end of the spectrum, you can easily view or download other people’s media as long as you have the appropriate permissions to do so. Just be careful with sharing files with copyright protection, make sure that the files you’re sharing are legally and originally yours. Check your local law regarding sharing copyright protected files.
Using social networks can help you connect to your close friends and contacts online. With the use of smartphones, you can make this task easier and hassle free, almost everywhere if you like. The portability of mobile phones makes it easier for users to connect to the Internet and share things on social networking sites. This includes entertainment reviews about media, such as movies and shows people recently viewed and watched. You can also search for media that is trending locally or globally, such as latest movies and songs from famous icons and bands. With this connectivity, you’re not just obliged to watch a certain program, but you can also help your fellow viewers by commenting on a specific movie or reviewing it. This seems to be “entertainment to a higher level” because of interactions and commentaries available and shared online.
