smartphone sensors – Nowadays, smartphones, which have become part of people’s lives, are a tool that makes many tasks easier in our everyday life. According to the data gathering website ‘Statistics’, there are about 41 million smartphone users in India by 2020. Keeping smartphones in such a way has become common for people.


Today, we are going to tell you about the sensors used in the smartphone, with the help of which many types of applications are available in your smartphone. Suppose, if you install the compass named app on your smartphone, then it starts telling you the right direction. Do you know how this is possible? This is only possible due to the sensor in your smartphone.


These are some important smartphone sensors

Proximity sensor (proximity detector sensor)

When an object is near a smartphone, this sensor detects its presence. This sensor is primarily located near the selfie camera in the upper part of the smartphone. This sensor usually lets you take your smartphone to your ear when you call or call, then this sensor automatically turns off the display’s light of your smartphone.


Accelerometer and gyroscope sensor (sensor used for rotation)

This sensor mainly tells about the direction in which the smartphone is rotated. Whenever you are watching a video on your smartphone, you prefer to see it in landscape mode instead of Portrait mode so that the video can be seen on full screen. For this, as soon as you turn your smartphone into landscape mode, the orientation of the video running in the smartphone also becomes the landscape. Keep in mind that this sensor works only when your smartphone has auto-rotation enabled.

If you lock the rotation on your smartphone then this sensor does not work. It is called Accelerometer and Gyroscope Sansar because the rotation of the smartphone requires two sensors in which the accelerometer in its linear acceleration (linear acceleration) while the gyroscope controls the rotation angle speed. Accelerometer sensor is also used for many health-related applications.


Digital compass

It uses a magnetometer sensor which works according to the magnetic field of the Earth. With the help of this sensor, the install digital compass in the smartphone gives information about the right direction.



This sensor works primarily with the help of Inbuilt GPS chip in the smartphone. With this help, data can be collected by locking the location at a high speed at high altitude. This sensor is basically used in health app, with the help of which you get information about how high you are.


Biometric sensor

It is used today in nearly all types of mid-range and high-end smartphones. With this help, the fingerprint sensor is used to protect the smartphone. This sensor scans the thumb or finger recorded in the smartphone and collects the data, and for the second time if the thumb or finger is placed near this sensor, then it can be combined with the information gathered in the right thumb or finger Recognizes

The same sensor is also used for biometric data used for the base app of the Indian Unique Identification Authority. In addition to a fingerprint in the biometric sensor comes the Retina scanner, which is associated with the camera used for Selfie. With the help of which the lock of the smartphone can also be lock-unlocked with the help of a retina scan. Apart from this, with the help of this sensor, the heart rate can also be measured, which works with many types of heart rate measuring app. Biometric sensors are used for many types of smartphones.


Ambient light sensor

This sensor helps to adjust the brightness of the smartphone’s display to the brightness of the room. This sensor helps to automatically brighten the display’s brightness or more.


Virtual reality sensor

All the sensors used in the smartphone, together with the CPU’s CPU (Central Processing Unit) and GPU (Graphical Processing Unit), help to collect accurate data. The Virtual Reality sensor originally works with a smartphone’s camera and works with the reality-themed app. This sensor can also remove an animated picture with the help of a camera app in the smartphone.

As it is the practice of removing a variety of animated face photographs in the youth today, it is possible only with the help of this sensor. This sensor also helps in playing a variety of mobile games. There are virtual characters in many types of mobile games that can be created with the help of this sensor and you can take advantage of mobile games.


GPS sensor

GPS sensors are usually sensors used on all smartphones. GPS means global positioning system i.e. the global positioning system. This sensor helps you to know the location of the device. This sensor can connect with many types of satellites Where are you at this time. This does not work when you are present in indoor or in the basement and the thick clouds are felt because these layers create problems in connecting the sensor to the satellite. Also the GPS sensor works only on the internet connectivity in the smartphone.

That is, if the internet data is off in your smartphone then this sensor does not work. GPS sensor works on internet data, due to which the smartphone gives the warning of the excess use of the phone’s battery. GPS sensor quickly disables battery of a smartphone. But with the help of this sensor, many types of locating apps work in your smartphone. If your smartphone is lost somewhere then with the help of GPA tracker, it helps to lock your smartphone.
