Nokia Becomes Trusted Smartphone Brand Counterpoint Version

Nokia Becomes Trusted Smartphone Brand Counterpoint Version

Besides providing information about the smartphone brand market share from each quarter of each year, the research institute Counterpoint Research also publishes a report related to “Trust Rankings”. The report specifically compares electronic device manufacturers based on four main pillars; software updates, security updates, build quality, and recommendations for the enterprise-class (organization).

Until now, many smartphones have received regular software updates or software updates. Starting from the Android version upgrade to monthly security, not only the Google Pixel line.

One of the ones known to be the most diligent in these two things is HMD Global, through their Nokia Android smartphone which always features updates & security.

Two things are the differentiation offered by HMD since the launch of the Nokia 2, 5 & 6 in 2017, including its smartphone in Google’s Android One program.

This means that whenever there is a software update or security patch, Nokia smartphones are guaranteed to get them shortly after Google’s own devices.

Nokia Excels at Software Updates

This makes Nokia dominate the various charts in the latest Counterpoint Research report. One of them, the chart above, which compares each brand to their smartphones that are already running the latest version of Android which is common (in this case, Android 10). Included in the variable are devices that are released in the span of 3 years.

Counting all aliases 100% of the 20 Nokia devices published by HMD, have received an update to Android 10. OnePlus is the same, but the number of devices is much less, only 7. While the three below are Samsung, Realme, and Xiaomi, where there are still those who use the Android 9 Pie series and even Oreo.

Meanwhile, for security updates or security patches, Nokia has again surpassed the chart with a score of 100%. Because it is included in the Android One program, all HMD released smartphones get it every month. Then followed by OnePlus, Lenovo, Realme, and Xiaomi. With Samsung and OPPO being one of the lowest because they update every 3 months.

Apart from software, the important factor that Counterpoint Research performs is the build quality or physical endurance. There are several criteria used, such as a test for pressure, drop (impact), temperature, scratches, and resistance to liquid (liquid). From an average score of 3 out of 5, Nokia smartphones get a score of 4 out of 5.

Security Factors & Updates Become Attractive During Pandemic

In a report released, VP & Research Director, Peter Richardson said that the Covid-19 pandemic makes people more connected than before. The increase in cyberattacks is making software and security updates on Android smartphones even more important. Especially organizations or companies implementing a new work system.

Automatically, they prefer devices that are safe to use for workers or employees. “For the second year in a row, Nokia smartphones have topped our ranking for providing the most comprehensive software and security updates, and have the highest portion of the portfolio recommended for enterprise use,” explained Peter.

Meanwhile, 98% of other brands still present smartphones with inconsistent software and security updates. But again, not all people can see the differentiation offered by HMD as an attraction to buy. Especially for those who don’t feel like they keep a lot of important personal data, and prefer smartphones with higher specifications.

These facilities will also visit clubs in Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, DC, Wisconsine and New Jersey.

Apple has made a commitment to work with clubs and other similar institutions to help them explore the potential of iPadOS and macOS devices . Competents also try to present ways that teachers can integrate coding and programming into their curricula.

Such cooperation is not exceptional for a technology society. Donation of equipment to schools or non-profit organizations is quite common and happens every year. In Slovakia, we can dream of something similar to the maximum.

Apple sent the first folding iPhones to Foxconn

Apple and folding displays

You will certainly agree that the folding displays are not yet well-tuned. Although they can already be purchased from several manufacturers, they suffer from various “diseases” as well as low resistance. Apple is working on its own solution, which will be relieved of this. Now he became interested in the possibility of production.

According to the latest information, the technology company sent several pieces of folding iPhones to its main supplier, Foxconn in China . These are various prototypes that could be a reality in a few years.

We do not expect the introduction of the folding iPhone in the coming months . He whispers in the corridors until September 2022. Let’s be surprised.

The leaks have repeatedly indicated to us that Apple operates with OLED and Micro-LED technology . However, it is still not clear which one to decide at the end of the day. Each can affect the complexity of assembling the entire iPhone . The panel itself will most likely be supplied by Samsung.

Jon Prosser (probability 82.4% ) has long said that current prototypes use rounded stainless steel frames (similar to the iPhone 11). However, this may change in two years .

In the comment, write us what you think about folding displays. In your opinion, do they have a place in Apple’s offer, or are they unnecessary?
