Poor Battery Life
Battery life is one of the most common mobile issues & the solution to it is given below. Even after not using the phone all the time if it is still draining this is called self-discharged. Mobile phone batteries have a certain life-span, most of the common batteries can handle up to 500 charge cycles [2-3 years]. To save yourself from this issue and to keep your phone’s battery from aging too quickly, first of all, try to figure out those particular apps that are actually darning your battery and if possible try to delete those apps if not important, you can also save your battery by taking some small steps like low brightness, enable battery saving mode, turn off location, wifi when not using. Also before plugging your phone on charging try to run the battery down as much as possible and unplug when fully charged.
1 recharge cycle is considered when your phone is charged to 90% or more and then discharges completely or less than 10%. Hence another hack for longer battery performance is to keep your phone between 15-90% battery at most of the time. It is also important NOT to use substandard batteries in our cellphones, these will definitely cause performance issues and are a safety hazard as well bursting into flames and burning your phone and anything else around it.
Water & Liquid Damage
Some Mobile phone problems happen accidentally such as water damage and we cannot do anything about this. Even a small amount of water is enough to crash the motherboard of your mobile phone. In such a case first of all never try to switch on your phone immediately, try to dry off your device as soon as you can and then take it to repair shop to have it diagnosed. To dry off a phone, bury it in a bowl of rice and leave it alone for 4 hours; DO NOT leave your phone under direct sunlight for too long and DO NOT use hair dryer or any other similar device to dry the phone. To avoid such types of incidents cover your phone with a good guard, it may be expensive but it will be a worthy investment.
The most common mobile phone issue that maybe everyone suffers is the storage space issue for sure because most of the space in everyone’s phone is filled with photos and videos. Remember a limited number of smartphones have the feature of expandable memory nowadays. The easiest way to free up the space of your phone is to uninstall apps that are not in use, clear junk files from the phone, delete cache, transfer images on the cloud to free up space. You can also find some apps on play store to free up space on your phone such as CCleaner, cache cleaner.
Ideally, you should always keep at least 10% of your internal memory FREE for the phone to be able to perform its regular actions normally. Less than 10% free memory will lead to your phone responding slow, freezing up when you open multiple apps, restarting unexpectedly or even cause data loss in some cases.
Connecting Problems With WiFi, Bluetooth
Not every time but sometimes you may also have to suffer connectivity issue which can be solved every easily within seconds. Whenever your phone can not connect to their local network, keep your mobile phone on airplane mode for at least 30-60 seconds and then try to reconnect to the network. And if you are still facing any issue in the connection get it repaired or change the settings of Bluetooth and WiFi again.
Always be sure of the WiFi network you connect to, open and free networks can be a bait to install virus on your phone and perform phishing tactics. And your phone has a lot of information about you, much more than you think, your email, passwords, bank accounts, cards, payment apps and wallets, history, location and so on. By ensuring that you connect only to safe and reliable networks, you are saving yourself a world of trouble.
Google Play Store Crashing
