7 mistakes that are shortening the life of your mobile

Mobile phone has become a close friend of people these days. From waking up in the morning until going to sleep in the evening, we use mobile phones many times. Yes, since everything is being digitized recently, a lot of work can be done from mobile.


But the mobile phone connected with our daily life can be damaged by some of our small habits. Knowingly or unknowingly, we always make some mistakes, which gradually deteriorates our mobile phone. Today we are giving you information about 7 such mistakes, which reduce the life of your mobile.

Smartphones at high temperatures

If you leave your smartphone in high or very low temperature for a long time, it will also affect the smartphone badly.

Keeping the battery at very high or very low temperatures will degrade the battery quickly. It also causes the device to become full quickly and may permanently cause major problems in the device.

Lithium ion batteries are used in today’s modern devices. Keeping it at very high temperature will affect the battery badly.

If the device seems to heat up while you are running it, let it cool down. Overheating will damage the device quickly.

Using the wrong charger

You might think that all chargers do the same thing when you connect the charger to your device. If any phone’s cable connector fits into your device, we think the device is working fine. But even if other chargers charge your device, they cannot work as effectively as your device’s charger.

If you use a charger from another device, your battery life may suffer. It can also damage the charging port of your phone.

Not all chargers deliver the same amount of energy and some are of higher quality than others. But saying this does not mean that you should only use the original charger of your device.

If you use a good brand of charger it won’t affect the device that much. But the charger should be certified by your phone manufacturer.

malicious app download

You should not get any app on playstore or appstore. If not, you have to take additional measures to download the app. But when downloading apps from official sources or third party app stores, there is a possibility of getting malware.

Malicious apps can infect your mobile with viruses and steal personal information, passwords and banking details. Not only this, malicious apps can also give cybercriminals access to your device’s camera and microphone.

Most of the apps downloaded from Play Store and Google Store are safe. Because screening happens on these platforms. It helps to protect against malware.

Remove apps running in the background

Have you been removing background apps to improve your phone’s performance? But it is not so effective.

This will harm your phone’s performance more than it will improve it. Most of us understand that having too many apps running in the background slows down the phone, but modern smartphones are capable of handling such pressure.

In new smartphones, background apps are running in a very low power state. Therefore, it is better to let these apps run instead of forcefully closing them.

Because your phone switches from the active app to the background at low power, so that even if you come back later, it can be used continuously from where you left off.

It doesn’t put much pressure on your device but when you close the background app and open it again, it creates more pressure on your device by consuming more power.

Ignore the update

We apologize when the phone repeatedly sends a notification that a new software update has arrived. But this is an important notification, which allows your device to run smoothly.

Generally, such updates are released not only to improve the user experience, but also to protect against new cyber problems.

Ignoring these notifications means welcoming malware attacks. Therefore, from now on, as soon as the notification of the update comes, please download and install the update on time.

Use of public WiFi

New technology has made our daily life modern and comfortable but along with it the threat is also increasing. The use of smartphones, tablets, and advanced computers has now become inevitable.

Such devices are mostly connected to the Internet. Therefore, a large group of common people are spending a lot of their significant time in the virtual world.

Even in the virtual world there are people of both good and bad nature. Hackers are now a big challenge on the Internet. Because of this, we have to take care of security when we live in the virtual world.

We need to be very careful when running public WiFi networks. Running a public WiFi network causes problems like overheating, malware infection and battery drain.

Incorrect charging

As the mobile phone gets older, the battery capacity also decreases. Incorrect charging can damage the mobile more quickly. So never let the battery charge up to 100 percent. Since your battery has a limited charge cycle, it will not perform well if it is charged to 100%.

If you keep the battery balanced between 30 and 80 percent, the phone battery can be healthy. Even when charging the phone, it is advisable to do it in a cool and airy place. Charging under a pillow in a sunny place will have a bad effect on the battery.
