counterclockwise: remembering the not-quite-smartphone asha phones


hmd intends to resurrect the asha series, which brought back some memories. the asha phones featured more advanced functions than your typical featurephone, which made them attractive for those who couldn't afford a smartphone. keep in mind that this story starts late 2011 - ios, android and even symbian were still around, but options that delivered good experience were pricey.before we start, we should mention that the asha line was a key part of nokia's "next billion" strategy - the plan to connect a billion people to the internet, especially ones that don't have a pc or cable internet.so internet connectivity was a highlight of these phones. the browser was part of it, sure, but many ashas had qwerty keyboards to enhance messaging - not just texting, but whatsapp, facebook and twitter t






hmd trademarks "asha", nokia's former feature phone line


hmd just trademarked “asha” with the eu intellectual property office. nokia asha phones, for those who don’t remember them, were a lineup of feature phones that often featured a touchscreen and a focus on online services – facebook, twitter and whatsapp.asha phones offered smartphone-like functionality at a time when actual smartphones were too pricey. that made them a key element of nokia’s “next billion” plan. we don’t think that hmd will go the feature phone route, however. for one, the new application specifically mentions that “asha” can be used for smartphones.also google and micromax are even planning a $32 android go phone, so price is no longer an argument. hmd itself might be working on an android go phone, the nokia 1. so the new nokia asha lineup may be home to low-cost android

counterclockwise: how big can mini phones get?


we have witnessed a steady growth of smartphone screen sizes, a process that isn't showing signs of slowing down even though many handsets are already pushing up against 6 inches. some bemoan the loss of small phones, taking solace in the occasional "mini" phone.but we've also seen the term "mini" abused. the zte axon mini from 2015 has a 5.2" screen, which isn't quite as advertised. well, we suppose as the measurements of plus-sized phones grow then so must the dimensions of petite phones.here are some of the most famous minis in history. note that we're only including phones with "mini" in their name as they make an explicit promise to be small. there are a handful of compact devices not included here - like the iphone se or the sony ericsson xperia ray (funnily enough, those are smaller

counterclockwise: tracking the shrinking bezels of phones over the years


everyone loves large screens. we’re less passionate about large phones, though. it’s bezels that make all of the difference, so we’re happy to see manufacturers put smartphones on a bezel-burning diet. this is a relatively new trend, enabled by improved touchscreen technology.let’s start at the dawn of the modern smartphone, 2007 and the launch of the apple iphone. back then the average screen to body ratio was 33%, clearly the market was dominated by non-touch devices with keypads or keyboards. the iphone rose way above that with a 52% screen-to-body (stb) ratio.average screen to body ratio over the yearsthe iphone teleported to the front and froze there - stuck on 3.5” until 2012’s iphone 5. this left the crown within htc’s grasp and the taiwanese maker went into a four-year hegemony.it

counterclockwise: phones putting on weight through the years


phones have been getting heavier. and no, it’s not because they’ve been getting “bigger” - screen size certainly went up, but thickness went down. the average volume of the 50 most popular phones has been pretty stable since around 2006. if you remember your physics lessons from school, you’ll know this means that density went up.we think that the increased use of metal and glass caused this. both are heavier than the plastic that was used in the early days. it’s not just that they are heavier, they need to be thick too.plastic (as the name suggests) bends easily but quickly returns back to its original shape. metal bends permanently, especially around weak spots where the keys and ports go. so metal needs to be thick to keep it from bending.around 2014 and 2015 we had a string of “bendgat

asha parekh confesses love and adulation for nasir hussainacting legend and yesteryear star, asha parekh is grace personified. even as she confessed to the media and the world of her attachment to late filmmaker nasir hussain, she did so with amazing confidence and respectability. nasir hussain had introduced asha parekh in dil deke dekho (1959) and they collaborated on seven feature films, all superhits including teesri manzil and caravan.details of their professional as well as personal relationship were brought to light in asha parekh’s recent autobiography the hit girl. the actress was recently quoted as saying, “yes, nasir saab was the only man i ever loved. it would’ve been worthless to write an autobiography if i didn’t write about the people who mattered in my life.” asha parekh wa






counterclockwise: the dawn of samsung galaxy


the samsung galaxy s8 made a huge splash this week, but it has been a long way to get to this point. we’re not talking about missing the mwc, with this week’s counterclockwise we would like to take you back to where it all began.you see, the new flagship - along with any samsung-made android device - is called “galaxy” because that was the name of the first android phone the company ever madethe samsung i7500 galaxy is s8’s great grand daddy. it launched about half a year after the first ever android (the g1). you can say that samsung has been with the platform from its shaky first footsteps.samsung i7500 galaxythe i7500 galaxy ran android v1.5 cupcake on a single 528mhz processor core and with a measly 128mb of ram. looking back at it, it feels so quaint. it lacked voice dialing (compare






i was enamoured by nasir saab - asha parekh


i was enamoured by nasir saab - asha parekhshe’s undeniably distinct from her peers. because asha parekh has gone way beyond the paradigm of stardom and its engulfing halo. a noted dancer. director and producer of hit tv shows like kora kagaz and kangan. ex-president of cintaa (cine and tv artistes association). the first female chairperson of the censor board. distributor of 21 hit films. founder of the asha parekh hospital in santacruz... she’s a woman of many shades and much substance. isn’t it then hard to believe that a woman so driven, an achiever succumbed to depression and had to surmount suicidal thoughts? well, her autobiography asha parekh: the hit girl (an autobiography with khalid mohamed) reveals both the verve and the vulnerability of the screen goddess of the ’60s with neve

huawei executive says 6 or 8gb of ram is unnecessary


why it matters to you while smartphone makers are falling over themselves to bring you phones with 6 or 8gb of ram, a huawei official says that's just not necessary.when does more become too much? according to a huawei executive, that boundary gets drawn at precisely 4gb of ram. smartphone makers have pushed in recent months to come out with phones with larger and larger memories, with samsung, xiaomi, oneplus, and yes, even huawei releasing 6gb monsters after the debut of the vivo xplay 5 elite as the first 6gb smartphone in the world. one high-ranking huawei official, however, just doesn’t think it’s worthwhile.to express his discontent, the executive, named lao shi, went to his weibo page to comment that 4gb of ram is sufficient for smooth smartphone operation. according to shi, tests h






what features will samsung build into a foldable galaxy smartphone?


1 of 1210 questions about the design of samsung’s foldable smartphone for years, samsung has been working on a foldable smartphone that would combine some of the better features of the old flip phones of the ’90s and early 2000s with the virtues of today’s handsets. the result, which some rumors suggest could have the less-than-original name of galaxy x, might deliver some of the best mobile features available, according to samsung. samsung chief dj koh has already confirmed that a foldable galaxy smartphone will hit store shelves in 2018. but questions remain about the handset's design and, so far, samsung hasn't shared many details about the foldable smartphone's features. this slide show will focus on questions surrounding the galaxy x's design. 2 of 12what does a foldable smartphone lo

analysis: can google and htc crack the apple-samsung smartphone duopoly?


google late wednesday announced that it would pay $1.1 billion for employees from htc's smartphone unit, prompting waves upon waves of speculation about what might come next from this hookup.but i have one hope: that google's clout and htc's design can give us something to challenge apple and samsung.now, let me be clear. i'm not against either apple or samsung — they both make nice phones. i'm also not saying there aren't other smartphone companies out there, because there obviously are. but while there are firms doing interesting things — essential, lg, even google's former acquisition motorola — it definitely feels like this is apple and samsung's market and we're all just living in it.having more players is also good for innovation.

counterclockwise: making everything wireless - gsmarena.com news


apple’s new iphones support wireless charging – a feature that has been slowly gaining popularity in recent years. but the qi standard has been kicking around the mobile world for about 8 years by this point, pioneered by the palm pre smartphone (and the touchstone charger).wireless headphones are nothing new – bluetooth has been able to carry audio since the early days. apple took this to the extreme with the airpods, they don’t even have a wire connecting the two ear plugs!but pairing your handset to your headphones can be a pain, what if it can be done wirelessly? we’re talking about nfc, of course, first appearing on the nokia 6131 in 2006. the first android with nfc was the nexus s and apple later adopted the tech but in a restricted fashion.apple airpods • a nokia wireless charger wi






counterclockwise: going from squarish screens to widescreen


display aspect ratios are a hot topic this year as the hegemony of 16:9 is coming to an end – high end and some mid-range phones are switching to 18:9 or even wider en masse. but we have to remember that 16:9 did not always rule.we plotted the aspect ratios of handsets in our database – both smartphones and featurephones. note that this is based on the phones released each year, regardless of their popularity or sales. not that it’s hard to see which phones sold well and which didn’t.we can see three major eras. the 16:9 era (which is now coming to an end) started exploding in the 2012-2013 period. from then it quickly expanded to be the aspect ratio of choice for just about every phone.but in the beginning, 5:4 and 4:3 ruled the land. back in those days this meant 176 x 220px or 120 x 160






counterclockwise: htc hd2 and friends run any os under the sun


smartphones have progressed by leaps and bounds, yet they are far behind the humble pc in some respects. modular phones have attempted to bring upgradability, but few phones seriously considered giving you freedom of choice when it comes to the operating system.the htc hd2 is legendary in that respect. it launched in 2009 with windows mobile 6.5, heavily modded by htc. since then it has run windows phone 7, windows phone 8, android, microsoft’s android, windows rt, firefox os, webos, meego, tizen... ios is probably the only mobile platform that eluded the fabled hd2. there are some claims to it, but none we can verify.what is it about windows phones that makes people want to run android on them? a more recent effort put android 7.1 nougat (!) on the lumia 520. this lumia was the best-selli

why budget phones are good, even for people who don't buy them


when 2007 came along and the first iphone was released, it was a very exclusive type of phone. only a segment of the population around the world was truly willing to shell out so much cash for a phone that quite possibly could turn out to be a flop. apple eventually became the company known for trailblazing the smartphone revolution, and its reputation just stuck.even now flagship phones released by well-known brand names continue to be expensive. the saving grace of penny pinchers the world over is that there are hundreds of “budget” alternatives from lesser-known brands that have consistently decent levels of performance for the vast majority of users.here’s the kicker, though: although people who buy budget phones experience a direct benefit in the form of having a cheaper device with h

counterclockwise: plotting the average camera resolution through the years


the camera megapixel race is dead as most flagships have scaled back and instead chosen to race with wider apertures and secondary snappers. but mid-range and entry-level phones have been catching up in the megapixel count, pushing the average higher and higher.we took the 100 most popular phones from our database for each year. for those we averaged the megapixels of their main camera (for dual camera phones, the higher resolution sensor was used in the calculations).as expected, we see an upwards trend to the average pixel count. growth accelerates from 2011 to 2015 and then it tapers off. there is not a lot to be gained by increasing the resolution after a certain point if you don't increase the sensor size too.a bigger sensor will require a thicker optical assembly – and phone designer

counterclockwise: oled screens challenge old-fashioned lcds


the cathode ray tube was revolutionary - it brought screens to the home, before it you had to go to the cinema to watch a movie. in the last couple of decades crt was displaced by lcd - liquid crystal displays - but now lcds themselves are under attack from oled - organic light emitting diodes.our poll shows that people prefer oled, but since it’s a relatively new tech, few phones use this type of display. samsung was an early mover in the field with 2004’s x120, which had a 1.8” oled display with 128 x 128 pixel resolution. the number of oled-packing phones has grown significantly since then but the mobile field is still dominated by lcd.here’s a chart showing the slow rise of oled from the couple of phones in 2004 to nearly a hundred in 2015 and 2016. surprisingly, 2017 saw half that num






remember mary tyler moore, don’t grieve her death


“can’t you see anything except in terms of how it affects you?” charged calvin jarrett (donald sutherland) angrily to his on-screen wife.“no. and neither can you or anybody else. only i’m more honest about it.” so replied mary tyler moore in her portrayal of beth jarrett, a role that won her a nomination for best actress in “ordinary people.” those words bore much truth as i, along with millions of other americans, learned of moore’s death, at the age of 80.unlike the many high-profile deaths that punctuated a tumultuous 2016 with surprise and sadness—prince, george michael, david bowie, carrie fisher, debbie reynolds—moore’s p ing evoked a much deeper nostalgia because her on-screen life paralleled my youth and young adulthood.with her death then, e not grief, but a kind of bittersweet re
