Hardware enhancement of smartphones

If you are interested in getting the best portable gadgets on the market, you certainly should know about the capacities of modern smartphones that are described in this article. Learn more about CPUs used in smartphones, their memory hardware as well as the external devices that can be attached to them.

CPUs of smartphones

After all, a mobile device is a computer like a desktop or a laptop, that comes in with basic components performing basic tasks. The whole mechanism of the operation is based on the centre of the primary circuit board, the motherboard. The largest of these components is the System on a chip (SoC), a combination of miniature CPU, GPU, and other support logic set on a single silicon die. This saves a lot of space as well as power consumption during the process.

One of the interesting facts about the mobile CPU is that they are hardly an x86 Intel-based CPU, rather, you are likely to come across ARM architecture more often on a tablet. iPad uses an ARM A-series chip which is designed by Apple and the likes of ASUS transformer uses Tegra ARM SoC designed by NVIDIA.

Storage space of smartphones

Mobile devices generally use storage, but the chances you will see a mobile device using a magnetic hard drive is slim to none. The mobile device relies on a flash media like a Solid State Drive (SSD) or microSD card since they are smaller and fit so well with them. They use way more less power, super faster than any spinning HDDs.

Mobile devices vary in two distinct ways from their larger siblings. First of all, you can replace any of the parts. If something goes wrong either you will have to send it to the manufacturer or local retailer outlet supported by the manufacturer, for instance, the Apple Store or to any mobile device experts. Second, you can not upgrade or extend the RAM, and internal mass storage drive. If you need something better and more spacious, you got to buy a new one with such specifications.

Smartphones and external storage devices

You can additionally attach peripheral devices or external storage devices. These devices offer various expansion capabilities. The most common one is the 3.5-mm audio jack to plug in your earbuds or speakers. This is also on the way to deprecation. Apple has already moved on from the jack of the iPhone 7 as well as premium-level Android devices.
