Touch Screen vs. a Regular Screen
The newest technology attracts millions of buyers every year like moths to a flame. Many people upgrade their smartphones as soon as their contract or pocketbooks allow. One of the biggest questions today is the differences between a touch screen handset versus a regular screen handset.
Touch screen handsets are fancy, to put it simply. They are usually sleek and attractive in appearance. Many touch screen handsets will boast many of the bells and whistles that are available with cellular technology today. Many touch screen phones have a nice sized screen and are pretty user friendly. It is also nice not to have buttons that can either wear or eventually break after repeated and constant usage. A touch screen phone usually has some kind of screen lock or a timeout function that minimizes the accidental call to the wrong person at the wrong time. How embarrassing would that be?
There are a few disadvantages when using a touch screen that makes using a regular screen a bit more attractive. One of the biggest problems is battery life. Most touch screen phones are of a larger size so that means greater battery consumption. Many touch screen handsets have problems with applications crashing and that will usually freeze the whole phone up. You then have to take the time to restart the phone just like a computer. Touch screens also tend to get very dirty and are hard to read in direct light because they are not totally transparent. People with long finger nails or large fingers also experience some precision issues with a touch screen handset.
There are plenty of advantages and disadvantages when it comes to using either type of handset. What it all comes down to is functionality and style. Think about what you need the phone to do for you and what you will be using it for when making a decision.
