10 things that should absolutely not do with its Android smartphone [Exclusive Guide]
all users of smartphones are not necessarily experts in the field. Their use does not require to know everything but this sometimes leads them to have behaviors to avoid. In fact, even the experts, by the dint of hack, and perhaps also a bit because of an oversized ego, may have discouraged practices. This is so 7 things that should absolutely not do with its Android smartphone.
ignore software updates
tends to be sometimes reluctant to update my smartphone. If this isn’t an update major but rather something related to small features, fixes small bugs or security, it tends to take it lightly. In any case, it is the case of some users. Others say that everything looks of good work then why make a update that could bring its share of bugs?
these reflections are understandable but these are behaviors to avoid absolutely. Updates of builders correct more problems than they are. It’s just that when there are problems we talk more. It is recommended to update your smartphone as soon as he tells you.
You can even configure automatic updates no longer see the commit message. In all cases, do not ignore these updates, they are essential for the safety of your smartphone.
Never restart the smartphone
our smartphones are subject to a high work rate. They are requested 24 hours a day and sometimes in a very intense way. Like you, your smartphone needs to rest. Never let him respite is not recommended. As a simple little reboot just to restore forces . No need for the same number of hours of sleep you, pretty cool right?
A restart will actually allow the smartphone to ‘clean up ‘. For example, it will empty the cache memory or solve errors small operation that you don’t necessarily feel but who are present. A small restart from time to time will do the most good to your smartphone. Feel free to do so.
Let it discharge completely
the myths on the batteries and the charging of smartphones are many. Among them, there are some who survives for many years, is that of the full discharge. Many users voluntarily leave their smartphone discharge completely, because “it’s good” and would allow battery to extend my life.
It is a mistake to absolutely do not reproduce. Let a smartphone completely offload will actually shorten the life expectancy of the battery and not the other way around. Because when you recharge your smartphone the cells of your batteries will be particularly stretched at the start of the charging.
the ideal and to recharge a smartphone when it displays 20-30% of autonomy and to recharge up to 80% maximum. In the past, the cells ‘”also suffer. The ideal conditions for your battery is at 40-50% of autonomy.
Recharge your smartphone with an incompatible charger
the recharge of the smartphone is often a source of problems if certain rules are not respected. The main remains the choice of the charger. If manufacturers provide an official charger, it is not necessary to use exclusively this charger.
Third-party manufacturers are quite capable of propose your smartphone-compatible Chargers . But be careful not to take anything either. It is tempting to be seduced by products sold a few euros on the web. But these products do not necessarily display characteristics corresponding to the battery of your smartphone (power, amperage, etc.).
, please pay attention to the standards in force. A charger bought in China will not necessarily standard which is a guarantee of quality anyway. So be very careful at this point. An unofficial charger, Yes, but a charger not compatible it is not!
end of January, a study revealed that more than a third of Android users locked not their smartphone . A few years back, you could still understand that some are tired to enter a code or compose a pattern every five minutes, although this is not the right attitude to adopt.
But now that most smartphones offer fingerprint readers and the Smart Lock feature allows to automatically unlock the device when it is close to another device of trust, in a place of trust, or door on you, it’s just inexcusable.
in 2016, its smartphone locking is essential. It avoids that a thief for access to your personal information, or cannot make calls to numbers overtaxed with your device.
Do not back up their data
often tends to think, wrongly, that from the moment when my data is stored on their smartphone, they are safe, but in reality, it is not at all the case. Nobody is immune to an deletion accidental, a problem requiring a restore factory settings or worse still a flight or simply a junkyard.
with the means at our disposal in 2016, it is very easy to save almost all of its data, including its photos by activating the auto backup within Google Photos . Still, it would be shame to lose your holiday memories!
Not to protect the screen of your smartphone
the Gorilla Glass protection glasses found on most of the Android smartphone are chemically treated against scratches, there are therefore theoretically supposed to resist. But no material is truly infallible, as smartphones are devices that we carry around with us, we regularly put in our pockets or bags in the company of our keys, so the risk of stripe is present.
too bad as we know with screen protection, it can so easily be avoided. In addition, these protections in tempered glass that remain quite cheap may also in some cases protect the screen of your smartphone in a fall. And for that matter, also add a shell!
download apps from unknown sources unreliable
Attention, we don’t mix everything. It is here the apps from unknown sources but the “unreliable” is very important. Told you to not download APK files, on the contrary. Ourselves, we may provide you links to these files to be able to enjoy exclusive features for example prior to their arrival on an official application.
Here it is really from to pay attention to the source of these files APK : sites recognized, recognized forum, brief as recognized stuff. This is extremely important because it is through these files it is very easy to hack a smartphone by inserting pieces of malicious code for example. Caution therefore.
Use several antivirus
to protect themselves from these malwares and viruses, so there is antivirus. We believe that it is not necessary to install one on Android , the system self-sufficient and the main cause of infection being a lack of prudence in the user.
Be that as it may, some users feel reassured at the idea of having an antivirus on their smartphone. Okay, but if you only use one. No need to install more than one, it doesn’t strictly help. Better an antivirus but it is the best for you.
as several antivirus will eventually collide and especially they will significantly disrupt the functioning of your smartphone. An antivirus is greedy, resources and energy. Already some smartphones slow down and lose all of autonomy with an antivirus, so imagine with several.
Use a Task Killer, a Cleaner App or always close the app manually
Task Killer? App Cleaner? What is that? A Task Killer allows you to close the applications and tasks in the background suddenly of one. A Cleaner App to do more or less the same while emptying the cache. Basically, we delete everything that can turn backdrop of supposedly to gain performance and autonomy. Unless it’s completely wrong.
First because such applications are very gourmet resources and energy, a bit like the antivirus so. Then because their very foundation is based on something wrong. Indeed, when you launch an application for the first time, data is retrieved on the ROM (internal memory) to load in RAM (memory).
If we keep running the app in the background, during the 2nd time the app is opened, the data will be loaded directly on the RAM, no need to go through the ROM. Access is faster, requires less resources and allows the same to save energy. It would not be the case with a Task Killer and App Cleaner type app.
Besides it is also valid for users who tend to fire all the apps of the multitasking whenever they got to do something. Better to just let it run to gain energy and resources. Close apps is ultimately a manual Task Killer. Avoid.
