Understand All About Tablet Phones

Tablet phones are also known as phablets in the electronics world. A tablet phone typically sports a screen that is 6 inches in diameter or larger, with a touchscreen that may sometimes include the use of a stylus for writing. Due to their large size, elderly users may find it easier to read content off tablet phones than smaller smartphones. Phablets are like tablets, except with the capability to make and receive calls.

How do iOS and Android tablet phones compare with each other?

Even though they both call, text, run apps, and have a large screen, iOS and Android devices are very different to each other on the inside. Here is how the two operating systems are different:

  • iOS: With a limited number of devices released by Apple to qualify as tablet phones, there isn’t too much choice in terms of hardware, but the software does feature millions of apps and can seamlessly integrate with the rest of the Apple ecosystem like tvOS and Mac OS.
  • Android: A larger market share means that there are more apps, and commonalities between different manufacturers. This poses low switching costs between brands and lowers the price of tablet phones due to low software development costs. Being more common also leads to having more options available for sale.
Dual camera vs. single camera: What is the difference?

A number of tablet phones on the market are equipped with dual cameras that advertise optimised functions for a higher price tag. Here are a few tips to help you decide whether or not it is worth the extra cost:

  • Single Camera: The standard option on most tablet phones, a single camera can have more than 20 MP and are a cost-effective way to record your favourite memories in high definition. Certain models may offer high levels of optical zoom and a high frame rate for videos for slow-motion playback.
  • Dual Camera: Having two cameras makes it easier for the phone to have an accurate perception of depth. This makes optical zoom clearer and enables blurring effects based on distance, it can also offer a wider field of view for wide angle photography.
What is an OLED display?

Not requiring a backlight panel like the LED displays of yesteryear, OLED pixels can emit light on their own. This makes phones on OLED screen technology much thinner than phones on traditional LED designs.
