Various Smartphone Sensors and What Do They Do

Standard

#ACCELEROMETER

Move it in any direction and data from this sensor will spike, but leave it still and it will go flat.Apps use this data to tell if a phone is in portrait or landscape orientation, if its screen is facing up- or downward.

 
#GYROSCOPE

The gyroscope is a sensor that can provide orientation information as well,  It is also used by Google’s Sky Map for telling what constellation you’re pointing a phone at.

 
#MAGNETOMETER

The magnetometer. Yup, it is able to detect magnetic fields. The magnetometer is one of the sensors that compass applications use to point at the planet’s north pole. Apps made to detect metal use this sensor as well.

 
#PROXIMITY

The proximity sensor, which is comprised of an infrared LED and an IR light detector. It is placed near the earpiece of a phone, and for a good reason – when you place the handset up to your ear, the sensor lets the system know that you’re most probably in a call and that the screen has to be turned off. The sensor works by shining a beam of invisible to humans infrared light which is reflected from a nearby object and picked up by the IR detector.

 
#AMBIENTLIGHTSENSOR

When ambient light is plentiful, the screen’s brightness is pumped up, and when it is dark, the display is dimmed down.n fact, the Adapt Display feature uses this data to fine tune image representation.

 
#BAROMETER

Is a sensor that can measure atmospheric pressure. Data measured by it is used to determine how high the device is above sea level, which in turn results in improved GPS accuracy.

 
#THERMOMETER

The mometer for measuring ambient temperaturethey’re used to monitor the temperature inside the device and its battery. If a component is detected to be overheating, the system shuts itself down to prevent damage.

 
#HUMIDITYSENSOR

Data provided by it was used in the S Health application to tell whether or not the user was in their “Comfort Zone” – one with optimal air temperature and humidity.

 
#PEDOMETER

It is a sensor used for counting the number of steps that the user has taken. Such data is usually obtained by the device’s Accelerometer.

 
#HEARTRATEMONITOR

It is made to measure one’s pulse, and it does that by detecting the minute pulsations of the blood vessels inside one’s finger.

 
#FINGERPRINT SENSOR

Fingerprint scanners are most often used as an extra layer of security – as a substitute for a lock screen password.

 
#DETEXTEDHARMFULEDITION

The Sharp Pantone 5. Released only in Japan, it features a dedicated button which launches an app used to measure the current radiation level in the area.

A compelling reasons we know there is a creator of our universe is from the order within our solar system, which shows the creator is intelligent.

– Point 1: Order indicates intelligence When we observe something with order, patterns and systems our logic and experience shows there is intelligence behind it.

Example: Imagine we were walking along lost in the desert of Arabia. And then suddenly we discovered a mobile phone in the middle of the desert.

Someone them mentions to you that the way this mobile was created by chance because the desert has lots of sand which you get glass and oil where you get plastic (essential elements of a mobile).

So this mobile was a product of billions of years of random events!

The wind blew, the sun shone, the rain fell, lightning struck, the oil bubbled, the camel trod and after millions and millions of years the mobile phone formed itself.

Is there a chance that this could have randomly formed itself through natural processes?

Obviously not!

Because you understand that this mobile has order. Things are working together according to systems, patterns and processes which indicate a designer. Continue reading

Assalaamu Alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatahu!

In The Name Of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful.

Praise Be To Allah, The Lord Of All The Worlds.

Please Note: If There Are Long Narrations (Hadiths) I Will Be Taking The Part Of That Hadith Which Goes With The Topic. And I Will Not Be Quoting The Hadith Numbers, Cause Many Hadith Numbers Do Not Tally. So I Will Be Quoting The Narrators, The Narration, The Name Of The Book, And If Possible The Chapter Also.

The Muslim Has To Respect All The Teachings Of Islam & Be Proud Of Its Teachings. On The Other Hand, He Should Be A Caller (Da’ee) To Guidance (i.e. Quran & Sunnah), By His Attitude More Than His Words; Specially When He Is Amongst The People. Righteousness Is A Honor By The Means Of Which The Muslim Raises His Status, His Appearance Shows How Practical He Is. Teachings Of Islam Are Not Something That Are Shameful That He Should Be Embarrassed To Show Openly & To Practice Them Openly. One Of The Important Teachings Of Islam Is “Invite Towards Good & Forbid Evil”. Satan Presents The Evil Actions In Such A Way That A Muslim Thinks It Is Permissible. One Of The Biggest Sin Is Making Images Whether It Be Two Dimensional Or Three Dimensional.  Insha Allah Through This Article I Will Be Explaining How Photography Is HARAAM In Islam & To What Extend It Is Permissible & Why.

For a long time, Macs were generally considered fairly safe in terms of malware because there wasn’t very many Macs out there. The fact that the number of Macs was relatively small compared to the countless PCs deployed in universities, offices and homes around the world meant Windows machines were a much more likely target for cyber villains. However, as the Mac brand has grown in popularity, the machines are more at risk for malware attacks.
