Can Your Smart Phone Compete With Adrian Jose Velasquez Figueroa’s Nikon D500?

Do your smart phone photographs suffer from “red eye?” Do your friends think that you are possessed by the Devil, when they see your selfies? Mr. Adrian Jose Velasquez Figueroa discusses “red eye,” smart phones and his Nikon D500.

“Devil in Your Eye”

“When the Devil went down to Georgia looking for a soul to steal,” he might have modeled for a couple of these bad “red eye” smart phone photographs. The reason why we see “red eye” is due to light bouncing off the blood vessels in your subject’s eyes.

One solution for the “red eye” problem is to take smart phone photos, without the flash. Another solution is to move closer to the subject.

“Weak Smart Phone Flash”

Just like most of the features of your smart phone, the flash is “serviceable,” but not ideal. The Nikon D500 has a flash that is quick, allowing you to capture the moment, perfectly. Most smart phone flashes are “way too long.”

Instead of a flash, you should look for external lighting. If you love selfies, just grab a little spotlight to use as an artificial light source.

USB-C to Replace Micro USB

With the announcement and imminent release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, there is talk of the replacement of the near-universal micro-USB with the new USB Type-C. This new USB type is featured on the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7, and when a new flagship phone comes out with a new type of USB, it usually means the end of the old format. The same had happened with the mini-USB before being changed out for the micro-USB.

The USB-C is different from the micro-USB primarily in the fact that it is reversible. It does not matter which side is used to plug into a device. While this feature is not necessarily significant data-wise, it does lend itself to assist those who have trouble plugging in their devices at night. Along with this design change, the new plug will speed up data transfer exponentially, as the micro-USB technology has surpassed a decade in age.

However, the downside of this new technology is the fact that it will take a while to be phased into use. Unlike Apple, whose phones are universal across users, Android phones will take time to catch up due to the fact that it has different brands and different smartphone lines within those brands. High-end phones like the Note 7 will accept near-immediate adaptation in the next two or three years. Lower end phones among the more affordable price range may take more time to adapt to the times.

Don’t Soak Your Samsung S7 Active, Consumer Reports Says

Consumer Reports is disputing Samsung’s claim that one of its S7 phones is water resistant.

Samsung advertises its S7 Active as being water resistant, able to survive for a half-hour in up to five feet of water. In its commercials, rapper Lil Wayne is seen pouring champagne over the phone and dropping it into a fish tank.

Consumer Reports, after recent testing, doesn’t agree.

The organization, known for its testing of a variety of name-brand products, does not recommend the Active. Maria Rerecich, Consumer Reports’ director of electronics testing, said that Samsung’s advertising is usually “fairly good” and was surprised that the Active failed its water-resistance test. She noted that only two phones were tested and both failed, with bubbles seen on the camera lenses.

Samsung promised users that it would look into the review. “The Samsung Galaxy S7 active device is one of the most rugged phones to date and is highly resistant to scratches and IP68 certified,” the company said in a written statement. “There may be an off-chance that a defective device is not as watertight as it should be.”

Consumer Reports noted that its other S7 phones, the Galaxy and the Edge, passed the water-resistance test and are rated as excellent. The S7 Active, according to the report, excels in other tests, but cannot be recommended due to Samsung’s alleged false claims.

India’s $4 Smartphone

Late last month, news reports were swirling about a new $4 phone being put on sale in India. The phone, which doesn’t have the capabilities of smartphones like the iPhone or Galaxy, is still impressive for its cost to the consumer, and the fact it was created in India is hopeful for many reasons.

Products created in the country they are distributed in have a much more difficult time being created with inhumane or exploitative labor to the degree that we have seen from factories producing those aforementioned smartphones today. So, a product that could be easily built upon by a growing tech industry in India with an infusion of capital funded by high sales of this basic smartphone is essentially a free gift for economic growth in this sector and also promises more high-paying, high-quality jobs in India potentially than foreign firms could offer.

However, everything from an actually Chinese made demo given to journalists to controversy over the product in India doesn’t give much legitimacy to the company building this cheap Indian phone. Western and Asian tech needs to flood India with the right amount of tech at the fairest level of equity possible in order to develop even more established and even more capable phones than this one because that’s the only way India’s tech market is going to grow rapidly enough to catch up to the West and Asia in the next decade or two.
