What Are We Doing Wrong? Four Bad Habits That Kill Your Smartphone
A smartphone, even if it is shockproof and waterproof, still requires careful handling in order to serve its owner for many years. What seemingly harmless actions harm a smartphone?
- If the smartphone is used at high temperatures, the battery life is reduced, told the agency “Prime” NAFI expert “Digital Citizen” Vladimir Gritsenko. For example, the battery can be damaged if you use the resource-intensive Zoom app and charge the device with a quick charger at the same time.
- OLED screens, constantly operating at the brightness limit, can burn out over several years, that is, deteriorate their characteristics.
3. A dirty smartphone will last less than a clean one. Even the waterproof case can get water droplets if dust and dirt accumulate around the SIM card slot gasket.
4. Frequent charging “all the way” will damage the battery. Experts recommend keeping the charge level between 30 and 80 percent.
