Looks determine the first impression!
Have you guys ever wondered, why mobile phones from Sony Ericsson sell? and brands LG face the axe, for first I would go for brand quality and brand name in the market, if you are being told constantly by many around you that LG is a bad company, their phones are trash! you won’t buy it right! but second thing in each phone is their looks and features.
Features are more or less the same in every smartphone, quality may differ but still that doesn’t matter much. A 2MP good camera and a 5MP good camera don’t make a difference if you want to click small photographs.
The second most important thing is design and looks, most phones who have a lot of sale in the market are those which are more attractive, just be out of the box in design and you will have people following you.
See these example if you don’t believe me…
Acer Liquid is a special mobile phone that has normal features and hardware but sports an amazing red back jacket which totally mesmerize the artist out of me, it costs somewhere beyond Rs. 20000 ($ 452.54) but still it can be considered while purchasing a new phone.
It has 5MP Camera with autofocus and flash, smartphone and business phone features which makes it a complete performer, support PDF files and documents, so don’t think that it just has looks. Runs on Android OS, which gives it an advantage.
The second one in the line is… from Micromax, i am not sure if my international readers are aware of it but have a look, maybe you’d know.
Micromax Bling is something, which for me is a big disaster, this mobile phone is a pathetic combination of mobile equipment put together, though very innovative in design and fitted with beautiful Swarovski but still for me personally it is a big failure.
Now coming to the sales figure, you won’t believe this sold a lot and was a very popular thing among women, which proves the advantage a good-looking phone gives any combination of features. Design and Colors and attractiveness of a gadget drives more sales and that seems to be the case with Micromax Bling.
It has almost Zilch, nothing, a basic 2MP Camera, no flash or autofocus and some music player, nothing much.
After this not so small introduction about “how design of a gadget matter in making a mobile phone sells” its my space time where i’d like to share with readers of GizJets, what are some of the features that I would like to see in my mobile phone.
Sleek Body: I don’t like bulky phone so light weight is good
Nice Colors: I would not prefer a totally black phone but stylish combination of red and black, or blue and black or anything similar
Amazing Fonts: The phone must have many fonts
Signed Phones: Autographed phones from Linkin` Park with Mike Shinoda slapping the bass at the back
Yeah! that’ll be all to make my phone a killa! I just saw a killer phone recently, the One-Touch Net Phone from TATA Docomo, it is cool! very cool.
So, join the discussion using the comments panel below and tell me and all GizJets readers, what would you like to add in a mobile phone to make it killer?
