More than once we have imagined what the perfect cell phone would look like. It would certainly have a screen High refresh rate, a state-of-the-art processor, an excellent photographic area and an autonomy of up to two daysamong many other extras such as NFC, 3.5 jack or 5G technology; everything accompanied by a very high quality design.

Unfortunately a phone with these characteristics it wouldn’t be cheap. Given that many of the current high ranges cross the $ 1,000 line, it is most normal for this to be the case as well.

With all of this, the reality is so different that most users go for low or medium range phones. So today we won’t imagine what the perfect phone would be, but we will talk Which cell phones are used by half the planet?.

This is the most common type of phone

The cell phone that people use every day is very different from the best terminal on the market

As recently published by AnTuTu, the terminals most used by users They have little or nothing to do with the ideal dream phone.

Hence smartphones that normally use the AnTuTu service These are screen telephones that are at least 6.4 inches. 17.2% use them, followed by smartphones with 6.7 inches (14.7%) and 6.5 inches (13%). Keep in mind that Android has already put aside cellphones with small screens and that only Apple seems to be betting on it.

Despite the fact that the screens are increasing in size, the resolution of these screens does not seem to have increased. The resolution of 1080 is the standard today, regardless of the screen size with a presence of almost 36%.

As for the heart of smartphones, that is, their processor, Here we find the Qualcomm commands with a share of 57.5%, followed by Samsung processors with 15%. It should be noted, however, that MediaTek has grown to 12.4%, in part due to the appearance of cheap Chinese smartphones compatible with 5G.

Let’s talk about RAM and here we will be brief. Models with 6 GB of RAM are the majority with 34.3%. This obviously confirms that the 12 GB of storage in a smartphone is not required.

No, most people don’t have a Note20.

Gone are the days when smartphones with 8 GB of memory came out. Operating systems are increasing, applications are getting heavier and only a few cell phones already have a microSD slot, so the storage space had to be increased. 128 GB is the capacity of most smartphones on the market, although there are still many smartphones with 64GB of storage out there.

Finally, let’s discuss one of the most controversial topics on Android: its fragmentation. Despite the fact that brands are taking updating and supporting their devices more seriously, huge inequalities still exist.

The current version of Google’s operating system is Android 11, although it is not shown on the AnTuTu chart. Listed as “Other” it would occupy 1.8% of the current market. A very worrying fact. On the other hand, most Android devices would have Android 10 (63.3%) and Android 9 (28%).

In short, the smartphone that practically everyone has is a device with a 6.4-inch screen, 1080p resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and Android 10 as the operating system. Does it match the smartphone you have in your pocket?
