Best Phablets to buy in 2015

Best Phablets to buy in 2015

Phablets are devices that have both smartphone and tablet properties with sizes between these two categories. A phablet is an oversized smartphone and a downsized tablet.

Simply we can define smartphones with screen sizes 5.5 in and above as phablets.

In 2015 phablets are sold more than smartphones and tablets.

We have two lists below. One from USA, and the other from UK. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is at the top of both lists. In United States it is the first, and in England it is the second (the first one is Samsung Galaxy Note 5).

Graphene is a super material which is only one atom thick graphite (carbon) layer. It has a better conductivity than copper, and it is stronger than steel. Now, it is one of the most popular technological materials on the market.

I don’t want to bore you with technical details. But, in order to let you imagine about its usage areas, I will give you a short list:

Some usage areas of graphene:

01- Liquid Crystal Displays (LCD).
02- Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED).
03- Touch screens for smartphones, tablets, computers and TV’s.
04- Electronic systems
05- Aerospace applications
06- Air crafts
07- Space stations
08- Wearable electronics (graphene+boron)
09- Body armor for military personnel
10- Nanobots
11- Drones
12- Photo-voltaic cells
13- Super-capacitors
14- Rechargeable batteries
15- Sports equipment – tennis racquet, skis, bicycle frames
16- Bionic devices – tissue engineering, artificial muscles
17- Bio-micro-robotics
18- Organic electronics
19- Solar cells
20- Fuel cells
21- Hydrogen storage
22- Smoke detection
23- Water filtration – scuba diving without oxygen tanks, water desalination
24- Lubricants
25- Water proof coatings
26- Structural materials
27- Head casquettes, helmets
28- Shoes
29- Clothing

Futuristic technological devices

Futuristic technologies startle us with some fantastic new gadgets. I gathered a few of them for you.

Air umbrella

Protects you from the rain using a stream of air. It weighs 500 to 800 grams, and it can be used for 15 or 30 minutes.


Invisible Air Umbrella

Touch screen tables

It is for who likes to redesign home decoration frequently. You can change the covering of your table.

Solar panel roads

All roads, pavements, roofs, any surfaces are being covered with solar panels to produce clean energy. It can help for a clean environment and to control global warming.

Lily camera drone

Wouldn’t you like to own a controllable quality camera drone? Lily is under your service! It follows you where you go.

Mini electric helicopters

A personel helicopter is planned to be produced until 2021 in Japan. The vehicle will have a velocity of 100 km/h (62 mph). You can find the details at: http://en.rocketnews24.com/2012/11/10/japan-develops-single-passenger-silent-mini-electric-helicopters-travels-at-100kmh-62mph/

It is a system used by “Iron Man”. The same system was applied in a larger scale in the movie “Avatar”. Exoskeleton systems are especially in the todo list of the army.

Personally, I feel like I am in a science-fiction movie looking these devices.
