Last Updated on March 16, 2021© pixabay If you ask someone if they prefer to lose their wallet or smartphone? Most people will answer that they prefer to lose their wallet instead of their smartphone, even if it means having more work to request duplicate copies of lost documents, and that happens for a very simple reason: people can no longer live without their smartphone devices. As well as losing mobile equipment, people are also disturbed by phone battery problems that may cause damage or difficulties in using their smartphone. In that sense, there are several things that can ruin your smartphone battery, and you should know how to fix them.
1. Receiving Too Many App Alerts
One of the things that damage your phone battery is related to the number of alerts you receive on your mobile device, and in one day, you can receive dozens of them if they are active. Most current phone apps send push notifications for whatever reason, as they aim for you to use them for as long as possible. Therefore, it is natural that you receive an alert on your smartphone when someone commented on your photo on Instagram, your status on Facebook, or even when breaking news comes from your favorite news website. Minus the running apps or the apps with geolocation that you use to make everyday tasks easier and that are always sending tips and other tricks for you to put into practice. It is obvious that if you have many applications on your smartphone, the greater the battery consumption to keep them running. That way, and to make good management of the battery power of your mobile equipment, you must go to the smartphone settings and define which notifications you want to receive.
2. Having an Old and Outdated Smartphone
Imagine that smart technology starts to get out of date. Nowadays, it is very common for you to find old and outdated smartphones that can no longer respond effectively to the challenges and technological options of the present. And the truth is that phones that are outdated or with older versions (and might be an iOS or Android device) require more of their batteries. At this time, all android devices with version 6.0 or higher and all iPhones 6s or higher can be considered updated. The rest is already considered to be of the Stone Age. In the case of the iPhone, if you evaluate the iPhone battery life of older devices, you will quickly come to the conclusion that they have numerous iPhone battery problems. But this also happens with other battery-powered electronic devices. Nowadays, it is even questioned whether it pays to do a phone repair when the battery is damaged. The battery repair cost can be as expensive as buying new equipment. Therefore, it is better to invest in new equipment than to be losing money on an unnecessary battery repair.
