The mobile phones have become a key device and key for most people. The problem is that misuse of these terminals can considerably reduce their useful life. The main cause of shortened life is the battery. These energy storage devices typically have an average of 3,000 or 4,000 cycles. A cycle refers to each time the mobile is completely discharged. Due to the misuse of our smartphones, autonomy is reduced to 300 or 500 cycles.
It is true that with lithium-ion batteries there have been a change and charge cycles are counted in a modular way. An example: if we spend 25% of 100%, we recharge our mobile completely, and we spend another 25% again, we would have 50% of a complete cycle.
This method is an advance for our mobile to withstand daily wear and tear, even so, it is advisable to charge the battery while we are not using our phone.
Is there an ideal charger?
Manufacturers recommend that you use the charger that comes bundled with your phone. These official chargers have been endurance tested in order to improve their performance.
If we use third-party chargers it is possible that they will not fully charge the device, and even supercharge the battery voltage, which, consequently, would reduce the useful life of our mobile. For this reason, it is preferable to use chargers from reliable brands.
Control your applications
The recommendation always circulates to close those applications that are in the background. And so it is, it is true that we must remove the functions that are not used at all times.
Applications games and social networks are the ones that consume more battery, so if you’re using is not better than you disable the app completely. This applies in the same way with the GPS and Bluetooth tools, both drain the battery and, therefore, if you do not use it, it will be better to disconnect.
Dark themes can be of great help
The brightness of the screen is a key element for the useful life of our mobile. Keeping it in an automatic mode can give us up to two hours of autonomy. Currently, applications such as Twitter and WhatsApp have the option of using the dark mode, and this function that can be aesthetic will also serve to get minutes of addition to our battery.
As you can see, the screen is an essential element that affects the consumption of the smartphone. Some studies show that people consult their mobile phone an average of 200 times a day. This, which may seem insignificant, generates a lot of consumption, therefore it is advisable to set the screen to last for a short time.
