Many people treat their phones like children or grandchildren. But they are still misused. Those. do everything to make him "die" an untimely death.
Now we are going to tell you about 11 mistakes that everyone makes
1. You never turn off your phone
In fact, you need to turn off your phone at least once a week. Because if you don't, you are seriously damaging your smartphone's battery.
If you are using your phone as an alarm clock, stop using it. Use a traditional watch at least sometimes!
2. You have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth turned on all the time
Turn off these modules every time you don't need them. This will prevent loss of energy reserve and battery health.
Well, the rule also applies to the modules themselves: the less often you use, the longer it lasts.
3. You are using your phone in extreme weather conditions
No smartphone has been designed to withstand hot or freezing weather. The iPhone, for example, was designed to operate normally in temperatures ranging from zero to 35 degrees Celsius.
If the phone heats up in the sun under the window, the battery can not only deteriorate, but also explode! There are plenty of similar cases.
So keep it in your pocket whenever it's too cold or too hot outside. And never leave it in direct sunlight. Try not to use it in the rain.
4. You put it on charge all night
This is also bad for him. Because the battery deteriorates much faster when it is 100% charged. Always try to disconnect the device from the charger whenever possible after charging it.
5. You are waiting for the phone to be discharged to 0%, and then - to be charged to 100%
Modern batteries in mobile gadgets do not need this. Moreover, lithium batteries that have been used in smartphones in recent years, on the contrary, do not like it.
The optimal mode for them is to work in the range of 50-80%. Deep discharge of the device kills it - as well as "overcharge".
6. You are using a non-original charger.
Almost all gadget owners sin with this: the cords in the original chargers fray too quickly, and they cost not so little. Still, try not to use fake chargers.
This is the case when the miser pays twice: charging of unknown origin is almost guaranteed to destroy the device's battery. Or it might even blow it up! There are plenty of cases when this happened on the Internet.
7. Never clean the device.
There are a lot more bacteria on the surface of your phone than you might think. There are more of them on it than on the rim of the toilet or in a bowl of dog food!
We recommend that you clean the surface of the device with a lint-free cloth. For your own health.
Well, for the health of the phone too. This is especially true for cleaning the charging connector.
If it contains too much dust, it may damage the device! Use toothpicks or special needles.
8. You hold it in your hands when you walk down the street
Very often thefts are committed on the street. So be careful when using them in public places.
9. You are not using a password to lock the screen
While 50% doesn't, always set a password to unlock your screen! Otherwise, criminals will steal your information or use your internet banking application much faster than you think.
10. You authorize all applications to use the geolocation functionality.
Never do that. Leave this option only for navigation software and possibly for Uber.
Because if you allow all loaded programs to do this, your battery will drain one and a half to two times faster than it could if you were careful.
11. You allow apps to bombard you with notifications
You can be notified, but you can prevent most programs from sending you home screen notifications. This will not only save battery power, but improve your concentration skills: less distraction means more work.
