How you are damaging your phone without knowing.


There are certain rituals the average human performs with his/her smartphone for the purpose of pleasure, its initial cause, or just mere addiction, although the basis of these rituals to a certain degree are all understandable and somewhat acceptable they come at a heavy price that is largely detrimental to the smartphone and in some cases you the user.

As a person who would seek to preserve his/her smartphone, here are five habits you must unlearn.

How you are damaging your phone without knowing.

  1. Using your device while it is plugged into an electric outlet.

The habit is prevalent among youths and a lot of those sadly addicted to their phones. While there is a possible risk of your device exploding there as well exist possible chances of death by electrocution or fire hazard.

  1. Putting your smart device under your pillow.

The fondness for this shared by many humans still leaves its reasons unstudied, the alarming percentage of people who place their phones under their pillows and go further to sleep on them is a crisis in its own figure. Even though waves emitted from cellular devices do not pose threats to human lives, keeping them in a stuffed environment, such as under your pillow, can result in overheating and sudden implosion of all functioning mechanisms within.

  1. Installing apps from unknown websites

System analysts, as well as software adepts, have asserted that sourcing apps, such as games, and general purpose software programs, from unknown backgrounds and sites, can introduce malicious software and viruses into your device because some websites are designed to bypass the internet protocols making them breeding hives from system pollutants and viruses.

  1. Using chargers other than the prescribed one for the device.

Certain knowledge is privileged, some so privileged that they are inscribed at the back of a cell phone carton, its user guide, or even inside the device, but using the charger prescribed for your device “only” is a piece of information not advertised enough.

The voltage acceptance of every phone differs greatly and it is with these voltage schematics that phone chargers are being designed.

So using a charger designed for a device with higher voltage acceptance for your phone will do a number on your motherboard and leave a lasting effect on your battery. Using foreign cables for your phone would negatively influence the state of your battery.

How you are damaging your phone without knowing.

  1. Putting your phone on hot surfaces.

This would just result in the phone overheating. Placing your phone on a heated surface or appliance would destroy its physical component, and boil over its reactive chemical components the likes as sodium chloride, and chloric acid which would cause the phone to explode
