Apple Quietly Included a Remarkable Feature in the iPhone 13 Pro. It Makes All the Difference – Inc.

Published

on

The iPhone 13 Pro has some great features that are hard to miss. The camera system, which is literally bigger than ever, is one obvious example. Not only are the lenses and sensors larger, the Pro models now include the ability to take macro photos as close as two centimeters using the autofocus on the ultra-wide camera. 
Apple also managed to squeeze even more battery life out of the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max — two and a half hours longer on the latter model. Of course, one of the headline features, at least for people who pay attention to this sort of thing, is ProMotion. 
That means the Pro models get a high-refresh 120 Hz display for the first time on an iPhone. Previously, that technology was reserved for the high-end iPad Pro. The fact that the Pro models now have ProMotion is a big deal, but it’s not nearly as important as how Apple added it to the iPhone 13 Pro. It turns out that ProMotion has a lot to do with that improved battery life. 
That’s because the best thing about having a ProMotion display isn’t just that you get high-refresh rates, it’s that your iPhone dynamically changes the refresh rate depending on what’s happening.
Now, Android phones have had 120Hz displays for a while, and some of those are able to switch between, say, 60Hz and 120Hz based on what is happening on the screen. That, in and of itself, isn’t entirely new. 
It takes a lot of energy to light up and refresh that display, so the fewer times it has to redraw what you’re looking at, the better. Other devices with high refresh rates might adjust based on what is showing on the display. For example, if you’re watching a film shot at 24 frames per second, the display might refresh at 24 or 48Hz. If you’re playing a game, it might refresh at 120Hz. The refresh rate is mostly determined by the app.
On the iPhone, that’s still true, but Apple took it further by quietly included a remarkable way of deciding what refresh rate to use. Your iPhone 13 Pro or 13 Pro Max literally measures the speed of your finger on the screen, and then adjusts the refresh rate of the display.
So, if you’re using Twitter and reading a tweet, the iPhone 13 Pro drops down to 10Hz. If you start to scroll slowly, it might choose a faster refresh rate, say 60Hz. If you scroll quickly, it can ramp up to 90 or 120Hz. Apple doesn’t say exactly how many different refresh rates the display uses, only that it designed the system to match the refresh rate to the speed of your finger. 
The reason I think this is so remarkable is that Apple put in the effort that other companies won’t in order to provide a real benefit that those other companies don’t. Instead of just changing the refresh rate based on the app you’re using, it changes based on how you’re using the app.
Sure, this meant extra work for Apple. It had to put in the effort to build a system that would detect the speed of your finger interaction and then build that into ProMotion. The point of going the extra mile here is that the display is always using the most efficient refresh rate based on what’s happening on the screen and how you’re interacting with the device. That means it uses less energy and improves battery life.
Most people care about two things when they buy a new iPhone: How good are the cameras and how long will the battery last between charges? Smartphones only have so much space inside to cram all of the components. That’s why the camera bump on this year’s pro models got bigger — to make room for bigger sensors, longer focal lengths, and faster apertures. 
As for battery life, there’s only so much room for more battery cells on the inside. That means you have to make your device more efficient. Since the A15 processor on the inside is the same 5-nanometer transistor size as the previous model, there’s only so much efficiency you can squeeze out. 
I love this extra effort because it’s a clever way of killing two birds with one technological stone: smoother scrolling and crisp text, and the benefit most people care about most — better battery life.

Indian Gadget Awards winners: Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max ranked the Best Premium Camera Phone of 2021 – 91mobiles

Published

on

A smartphone’s camera details are usually plastered front and centre in the promos, and for good reason. Our phones have become the de facto tool to click photos and store our fond memories digitally. Understandably, the quality of the photos goes up a notch if the user spends top bucks on a brand new phone. To that note, 2021 saw the launch of a slew of camera-centric flagships with incredible features, but which one is the best? Enter, the Best Camera Phone of 2021 – Premium award. In this category, we’ve ignored the price tags and have picked all the smartphones that we thought offered the finest overall camera experience in 2021. But the award will only go to one phone, so to ensure absolute objectivity, our nominees were thoroughly inspected by the Indian Gadget Awards jury of over 40 experts from the Indian tech media community, and the results are in. Check out the winner of the Best Premium Camera Phone of 2021 award.

Check out the full list of nominees for the Best Premium Camera Phone of 2021 award.

The iQOO 7 Legend is a fantastic gaming phone and one that really pushed the boundaries with its long list of features. While the smartphone’s headlining feature is undoubtedly its SD888 SoC, the device’s 48MP main sensor deserves some credit too. To that note, the shooter excels at delivering great photographs in all lighting conditions. Plus, its Ultra Stable Mode combines  OIS and EIS to give the gimbal-esque stabilisation when recording videos. The smartphone’s assisting shooters are no slouch either and the unit’s 13MP ultra-wide camera (that doubles up as a macro lens) and its 13MP telephoto shooter click quality stills as well. There’s even an Extreme Night Mode on this device that offers amazing low-light shots, and a Video Pro Mode that gives users granular control over their video settings.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is truly an ‘ultra’ in all regards. The device’s main sensor is a 50MP 1/1.12″ unit which is the biggest sensor on any phone to date, offering a pixel size of 1.4 micrometres. As capable as the main camera is, the snapper is accompanied by a 48MP periscope telephoto camera that offers up to 120x digital zoom, and a 48MP ultra-wide camera with a 128-degree FoV. Pictures clicked from the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra have a remarkable amount of detail in them and the shots also have great dynamic range. What’s more, the phone also supports 8K video recording, aside from offering a host of other photography and videography focused features.

No surprises here. Apple’s latest top-end flagship, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is also a nominee for the Best Camera Phone of 2021 – Premium category. The larger sensors on this year’s iPhones have enhanced their photography performance even further. The iPhone 13 Pro Max gets a trio of 12MP sensors, with one of them grabbing a wide lens that makes use of the company’s sensor-shift technology, another utilising a telephoto lens 3x optical zoom shots and an ultra-wide angle sensor, which allows users to paint on a larger canvas. What’s more, the company’s upgraded Smart HDR 4 leads to stunning photos no matter what kind of scenario they are clicked in. This device also comes with the Cinematic Mode, which offers professional-grade video effects and there’s even support for capturing RAW video.

The Vivo X70 Pro+ is among the most impressive phones of 2021 and the smartphone offers a ZEISS-backed camera setup with ZEISS T* coating to avoid lens flare. The phone comes with two main cameras – a 48MP gimbal-stabilised snapper and a 50MP Ultra Sensing GN1 sensor that has regular OIS. While these are able to dish out spectacular photos and videos, the phone also offers two telephoto cameras of 8MP and 12MP resolutions, which together provide up to 60x digital zoom. Suffice it to say, the photography and videography experience of the Vivo X70 Pro Plus is as diverse, as it is fulfilling.

As is customary with any Samsung flagship, the Galaxy S21 Ultra also snaps gorgeous stills with plenty of vibrancy and details in the frame. The device ships with a 108MP f/1.8 wide camera which works alongside a pair of 10MP telephoto cameras. The assisting sensors allow users to snap photos at up to 100x digital zoom, a feature aptly dubbed ‘Space Zoom’ by the company. And, then there’s the 12MP ultra-wide camera that also returns stunning images. All said and done, the phone offers a complete camera setup with plenty of incredible features like support for 8K video recording, a Super Steady mode to mimic gimbal-like shots, and much more.

OnePlus is the go-to brand for performance-fiends, however, the company’s OnePlus 9 Pro managed to sway a lot of budding photographers to the company’s doorsteps too. To that note, the brand partnered with photography-giant Hasselblad in an attempt to finetune the phone’s colour science. The partnership worked brilliantly as the OnePlus 9 Pro delivers natural-looking photos with realistic colours under all kinds of light. The phone’s camera setup includes a 48MP main camera, a 50MP ultra-wide snapper, an 8MP telephoto sensor, and a 2MP monochrome sensor which, when put together, offer a complete camera setup.
