Mobile Ringtones - Old vs New
An article outlining the difference between old mobile ringtones from the 1990s and the more modern ringtones of today
Since the advent of polyphonic ringtones available for most modern mobile phones, there is an interesting discussion going on among the users, some of which stick to old versions of their favorite song while some others find the new style ringtones more popular. Then, which one has the larger chance to prevail longer? We are going to try to examine the advantages and disadvantages of both and aim at reaching a confident result.
First of all, an examination of advantages of both old and new style mobile ringtones is essential in order to have a stable perception as to how these two rivals can affect one another in this endless war. We have to notice that as technology gets more and more promising to develop new systems for which the old ones are abandoned, old version strategies get outdated. This rule partly applies to recreational industry elements since there were, are and will always be some to favor this and that regardless of the positive and negative aspects of the item they are favoring.
On the other hand, the old style ringtones, namely monophonic ones, provide a classical environment for users who are being fascinated with the tone coming out of the antenna of their mobile phones. Also, there are lots of infamous specimens of the new style element, polyphonic ringtones that may have discouraged people to use those on their mobile devices.
We observe a huge market when polyphonic ringtones are taken into consideration. For the last few years, mobile phone manufacturers chose the way to eliminate monophonic ringtones from their newly developed mobile devices for the sake of popularity, however we can still see some samples of popular monophonic ringtones in the market for those who favor the old to the new.
Considerable size of the old style mobile phone ringtones market mentioned above determines public awareness about revolutions in the industry as well. To be more precise, any new polyphonic ringtone introduced to the market not only increases the number of people subject to take advantage of it but also has the potential to bring about a new system that may entirely change the dynamics of this market. Old version mobile phone ringtones can still be sold, but in case the above situation occurred, there would not be such a thing called monophonic ringtones.
Coming to the disadvantages of both styles, we can easily see the importance of noiseless ringtones, those having nothing but a nice tone to help be favored by most people. On the contrary, some polyphonic ring tones seem uneasy to adapt due to the fact that noise produced by those can often level out the noise of an heavy truck carrying cement to the construction area.
In conclusion, monophonic ringtones are likely to live for at least a decade further but there is no reason to make sure they will be get able to go for another due to the high possibility of technology to come up with a revolutionary system to put all the old ones to the waste. For the time being, polyphonic ringtones are a step behind despite its potential to get better in a short time.
