Mid-Range and High-End: What Is the Dif­fer­ence?

Consumer Voice - - Mobile Handsets -

While techies use these terms like a rag doll, high-end and mid-range are two dis­tinc­tive classes of de­vices. Just like lux­ury cars are fraught with power and all sorts of good­ies, high-end de­vices have the lat­est specs and fea­tures. In con­trast, mid-range de­vices can be com­pared to ba­sic do­mes­tic cars – they have enough power and fea­tures for you to do the es­sen­tials – drive to work, visit friends and go to your fa­vorite places. In a sim­i­lar way, mid-range phones have enough power to not be slug­gish and to pro­vide a sat­is­fy­ing (some­times fas­ci­nat­ing) ex­pe­ri­ence.

In­ter­est­ingly, the fea­tures or the qual­i­ties that qual­i­fied a hand­set to be called a high-end de­vice in 2012 are al­ready dated. This means that the high-end de­vice of 2012 is a mid-range de­vice in 2014 as the tech­nol­ogy, so­phis­ti­ca­tion and fea­tures of high-end phones have grad­u­ated. 2013 Flag­ship Phone Specs • 2–3 GB RAM • Quad core Snap­dragon 600 or 800 pro­ces­sor • 1920 × 1080 (1080p) HD dis­play • 8+ megapixel cam­era • An­droid 4.2.2 Jelly Bean or higher (iOS 7 for Ap­ple de­vices) 2013 Mid-Range Phone Specs • 1–2 GB RAM • Dual core Snap S4 Pro pro­ces­sor • 1280 × 720 (720p) HD dis­play • 8+ megapixel cam­era • An­droid 4.0 Ice Cream Sand­wich or higher
