Small things we do on a regular day may affect our smartphones in a variety of ways with real consequences, like for example, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 incident. In order for your phone not to explode on you, here are some simple rules you may want to remember.
We at Bright Side love our little smart devices as much as the next person, and we really want them to live long and be helpful in our day-to-day lives. Here are some things you’ll want to avoid in order to have just that.
Applying weird DIYs from weird sources
At least once, we’ve all believed we could do something after watching a video about it on YouTube. However, unreliable sources provide us over and over again with “life hacks” that are not proven to be helpful but can straight out damage your phone visually or otherwise.
Leaving Near Windows
There are a lot of people who leave their smartphones near the windows which may be due to the fact that the bed or the desk in near the windows. Therefore, the sunlight shines on the smartphone and heating it up to a stage of overheating. Naturally, overheating causes damage to the chips and parts inside.
Sleeping With Smartphones
Most of the people cannot sleep without check videos or social media platforms through their smartphones. But they keep the videos on and fall asleep and throughout the night, the videos keep on playing overheating the smartphone. In fact, some people sleep on the smartphone or put it below the pillow accidentally which leads to overheating.
Not Updating Timely
The companies of the smartphones push regular updates to the users of their smartphones. These updates can address software as well as hardware issues and they are sure to extend the life of the smartphones. Moreover, there are many security issues addressed in the updates.
Twice a year, you should take your smartphone to the service centre and get it cleaned from the inside. Lots of dust particles and garages get inside the smartphones which hamper its lifetime. They also slow down the performance of the smartphones. If you can do it at home by opening the back cover and battery, go ahead and do it monthly.
Replacing With Cheap Battery
The smartphone users make the mistake of replacing the original battery with a cheap battery when it gets damaged. But cheap batteries cause huge damage to the interior parts and shorten the lifespan of your phone.
Holding your phone in your hand on the street
Literally, 40% of stolen iPhones last year were stolen while their owner had them out on the street while talking on it via speakerphone. It is absolutely necessary for you to be cautious and use a headset to talk when you’re on a crowded street.
Putting it in a bag without a cover
The cover is not only a fashion statement, but it really helps protect your phone from being stuffed with dirt and particles that accumulate at the bottom of your bag. All of this, mixed with the insides of your phone, will make the device overheat and can cause it to malfunction.
Carrying In Back Pocket
The girls love to carry their phones on the back pocket for convenience and fashion statement. But when they sit with it mistakenly, the phone gets bent and the screen cracks. Besides, there can be a loose connection due to the bending. Therefore, carry it in your purse.
