Initially, mobile phones were used for traditional purposes such as messaging and making calls; however, with the passage of time and technological advancements, it became possible to use them as a handheld personal computer. Growing usage of mobile phones for different purposes such as viewing images and videos, accessing the Internet, and gaming among others resulted in the need for devices with larger display size and superior quality. This encouraged smartphone manufacturers to develop superphones and phablets, which are essentially smartphones with larger screen sizes.
