Phone Features You Can Actually UsePosted: April 3, 2013
A couple of innovations may be coming to smartphones that you can actually use…what a concept! First, several makers are looking at replacing Gorilla Glass screens with sapphire, which is three times harder and three times more scratch resistant…almost as hard as diamond. Apple already uses it in their camera lenses. If they can get the economics of scale to work, this will be a boon…no more tears from cracked screens due to dropped phones! The other is being pushed by T-Mobile, which rolled out better voice quality for calls. Now, AT&T is going to bring out what they call HD Voice. The phones have had the capability for some time…it’s the carriers that have dragged their feet on this.
