Smart phones and the technology behind them have evolved significantly in the last year and a half. These devices have always allowed users to text, check e-mails and browse the web relatively quickly. Manufacturers took it a step further when they began to build phones with added capabilities in 2010 but the networks were still a little behind. Watching television shows or movies meant there was lag time and streaming was often interrupted.
Beginning late last year, major carriers have improved their networks, with Verizon and AT&T launching their LTE networks. With faster networks, you don’t have to worry about lag time while you are streaming a clip on YouTube or a show on Hulu.
We’ve made changes to our product line as well by providing more extended life batteries, developing the Charging Vault and offering cases with kickstands for more phone models. This year we added a kickstand to some models of our SURFACE and ACTIVE cases so you can prop up your device while catching up on your shows.
Kickstands have not become an integral feature, like our soft-touch coating, of our cases yet, but should they be? Will kickstands be a necessity for the smart phones of the future?
Feel free to sound off and let us know if kickstands or any other feature is the deciding factor for you.
