-By turning off Bluetooth you’ll block unnecessary and potentially harmful downloads coming your way.
-Not only rain, snow, but any kind of moisture, cold and heat are terrible for your phone.
-If your phone gets stolen or lost, nobody will be able to access personal data stored on your gadget if you encrypt it.
-Even if non-original charger doesn’t do anything bad to your device, the charging won’t be stable and fast.
-During usage, loads of grime and dust gathers on the charging pins, which results in slow charging and a poorer connection.
-Smartphone malware can steal your personal data and even track your location so it’s better to avoid installing any suspicious apps.
-You might not see a dented corner or cracks on the screen, but you never know what the fall has done to the phone’s insides.
-You’re supposed to use spray bottle to spritz a microfiber lint-free cloth, not your gadget directly, or else some open parts like the microphone are bound to stop functioning.
-Every phone has a certain number of charge cycles. If you let the battery run empty every day, it’ll last for no more than 400 to 500 days.
-By using a battery optimizer app, you’re likely to see intrusive ads on your screen non-stop.
-If your home screen is cluttered, your phone struggles to load all this stuff in one place. It puts unnecessary stress on the device’s hardware.
-Filled to the brim with data, your smartphone will keep you constantly frustrated with a lack of free memory space.
-Software updates will only make your device work better by getting rid of any bugs.
-If you put your phone in your pocket, your body heat will make your battery run out faster than if you’d put the thing in your bag.
-A little break helps your phone work faster and more smoothly, prolongs the battery life, empties all the unnecessary stuff from the memory, and prevents unexpected crashes.
-If you turn your phone off if its battery is almost empty, and you’re planning on powering it back up in half an hour, you’ll run the battery down completely.
-Remove cached data from apps and your smartphone will work faster after such a clean-up.
-Every tiny scratch cuts your phone’s lifespan down because all those electrical contacts are much more sensitive and delicate than you can imagine.
-If the new battery isn’t original, it can not only fail to work but also shorten your phone’s life.
-An additional layer of defense will make a world of difference should your device fall on a hard floor or pavement.
