There are many myths and misconceptions about how a smartphone can be used. Regardless of whether we are talking about Apple devices or those with Android, there are enough aspects that should be known by the user, to operate their gadget properly and to avoid practices that only complicate the way we walk with that device. We list ten of these aspects, below:
Even the best smartphones can be overloaded, from a computational point of view, if we open a lot of applications in the background, right? Well, that's not the case.
Battery life is taken into account by the engineers who create the respective programs, and one of the little known things is that when they are inactive (in the background), the power consumption of applications is tiny. It is only when you re-enter one of them that it activates, resuming the consumption of system resources.
So, although it is more orderly not to have 20 windows open on your smartphone, do not think that the battery will be consumed much faster than when you have activated one or two applications.
Empty the battery immediately after purchase
A fairly common myth is that, after you have bought a brand new smartphone, you will have to consume its battery to zero, in order for it to last as long as possible in the future. The myth has a grain of truth, as phones in the '90s and early 2000s had nickel-metal batteries, which really required emptying at first.
Today, lithium-ion batteries dominate the market, and they do not need to be consumed to zero when you buy a new phone.
