How to Optimize Your Smartphone Use

In a time when electronic devices abound, it is necessary to pay the utmost attention to them and extend their useful life in all aspects. A well-maintained smartphone will last more than twice what you think. Below are essential tips to make you maximize the performance you get out of your phone:

Keep Your Battery Healthy 

The batteries have an optimal lifetime. Sooner or later, they will have to be replaced by new ones, if possible. To extend the life of the battery it is advisable to check its charge cycles. So, what is a charge cycle? It is a full charge period from 0% to 100%.

For example, if today you are going to use your smartphone with 100% charge and you use it up to 50%, then you recharge it to 100% and use it again to 50%, 2 charging cycles have been completed. Yes, you might wonder that you didn’t exhaust the battery power before recharging. However, that is not how it works.

Batteries have an average of 1000 charge cycles. Once that number of cycles has passed, the battery begins to fail, give problems and will eventually have to be replaced. To extend its useful life you can download an application that allows you to review the status of these cycles.

The application shows you how you are using the battery. It analyzes the activities that are taking the greatest toll on the battery, and gives you advice on how to charge the battery. Here is a super essential advice for you: Do not leave the phone charging after it is 100%! This produces cycles that are wasted and reduce the life of the battery. 

Avoid Overly Demanding Applications

Applications that demand more RAM and faster processor speed than your phone can give make the phone suffer in general. The applications that give your smartphone the hardest work are video games. When you take it "to the limit" you heat it up your phone. As a result, all the internal components suffer and among them is the battery. Avoid installing video games that consume high resources that are above what your phone can provide. 

Disable Applications That Run In The Background

Applications like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, run and consume data even if you are not using them at that moment. Applications like these need to update constantly so that when you open them you will see all the updates. If you are one of those who constantly review social networks, you should download the "lite" versions that help you save a lot of your data plan and have a good user experience when connected. 

Avoid Playing Online With The Data Plan 

Online games, especially the RPG or "open world" games (games that allow you to move in a large space and connect with other players) consume a large amount of data in a very short time. Within a short period, you will exhaust your data plan. For games like these, use the advantages offered by a Wi-Fi connection.

These are a few tips to keep in mind if you want to optimize your smartphone use and use it for a long time. Follow these tips and enjoy your smartphone without worries.
