The Romance of Exploring Features in Mobile Phones is Vanishing

With the recent advances in mobile technology and the availability of cheaper smart phone have resulted in diminishing the charm of buying a new phone.

Today, Android smartphones are available in price range of INR 5k-50k. The only variant in these phones, for a layman, is just the hardware part. The software remains the same, except for a few updates in the version.

So the charm of exploring new features that we had in older days is slowly vanishing. These days phones are just like plug-and-play devices. You remove the Sim Card from the old device and insert it into the new. Rest everything is backed-up online.

There is no doubt that new innovations are constantly incorporated in the software as well as the hardware, but for the layman, the phone have become just a device for their daily needs, minus the romance of buying a new phone.

P.S.: This thought came to my mind after buying Xiomi Redmi Note 3 for Kiran. She just started using it without any kind of delay or reading the manual.
