Bigger or Smaller: Where Are Smart Devices Going Next?


It seems as if there is a new smart device that hits the market every year. These new devices provide us with more utility and convenience than ever before. Things change so quickly that people have a hard time even imagining what is next. This provides us an opportunity to have an open brainstorming session based upon trends to predict what can come next. Let’s take a further look at some current trends that are happening now and what we can expect to see in the near future.

Current Trends

Cell phones are becoming more and more accessible to the general public. One of the most popular trends for 2019 so far has been implementing a portable factor into new models. While cell phones are naturally portable, there have been steps to take this further. Foldable phones have been introduced and will hit the market by the end of the year. This will allow the user even more options to carry their phone in convenient ways whenever they are out and about. It will also allow the screen to become bigger when unfolded so that there is a bigger display that could be used for gaming or watching movies more easily. The newest models of smartphones will also feature dual-screens, stronger AIs, and sliding displays.

Bigger isn’t Always Better

Some people enjoy larger phones. The bigger screen allows them more real estate for their videos and pictures. Unfortunately, bigger screens can end up being a major hindrance if you aren’t careful. Bigger screens lead to higher instances of distracted driving and other problems. Many companies do not take this into consideration and continue to make cell phones with larger screens. Larger cell phones have more chances of breaking as well. The larger screen is more prone to getting damaged or dropped. However, some developers are considering this and taking necessary action in order to downsize the newest models of smartphones into a comfortable model that can please all.


Our cell phones can get hacked at almost any time. We keep our personal information on our phones without even realizing that this is a risk to our safety. Fortunately, trends have shown us that newer phones will be big on security. We can expect more countermeasures against hackers trying to get our information without us knowing.

Cell phones have become an integral part of our lives. We use them every day to help us at work and to communicate with our loved ones. Fortunately, the future is bright for cell phone technology and new innovations are already on the horizon.
