10 Common Misconceptions about Mobile Devices you should avoid

In this world of technology, there are some people who only creates and spreads some rumors about a particular device or gadget. And the main thing is:- the rumor they created will be circulated further and further because they seem to be realistic enough.



And if we take the case of mobile devices, then these rumors are not going to stop as we all are using mobile devices, rumors which are sharing further seems to be realistic, so everyone applied them on their mobile devices and without checking out the main outputs and results, they share it as fast as possible.

Yes, we can't stop those rumors and misconceptions, but we can easily avoid them by not applying and sharing to others. So, today I came with 10 Common Misconceptions about Mobile Devices you should avoid.

10 Common Misconceptions about Mobile Devices you should avoid


So friend, today we are going to bust 10 common misconceptions about the mobile device so that you shouldn't apply them in the future. Let's have a look:-

Cleaners clear Background processes

As you all know, there are some apps which keep on their processes by running in the background and eats up a chunk of battery. But want many smartphone users to do is:- they install any cleaner app from playstore, open it and clean up the RAM to free it.

That's not the right way, as cleaners kill the processes for a particular app, but for a very limited period of time. After that those processes will be restarted. So, you might as well get rid of those ‘task cleaners’ that you might have installed on your devices. For clearing the background processes, try to remove them manually through settings.

Wi-Fi & Bluetooth drain your battery faster

Many users turn off wifi when they're not using it. Same is the case with Bluetooth. The main reason behind turning the WiFi and Bluetooth off is "Save the Battery". Really? Let me explain.

The reality is:- when you open up wifi and Bluetooth for browsing internet and data transfer respectively, they eat up the battery at that time. But when their work is done, they keep themselves in idle mode. That means when you're not using it, this doesn't matter that you keep them on or off, but they didn't consume battery.

You should only use the charger that came with your phone

Many users charge their mobile-only through their charger. Even if there is an emergency and at the time have not the charger they received in the box, they didn't ask for help to charge their phone, in some cases.

But this myth is really wrong and hugely circulated. You can charge your device with any charger, but just keep this 2 thing in your mind:-

  • Use the charger which is manufactured by a trusted brand. Don't use those local chargers because they can damage your device. Choose wisely.

  • Second, if your device supports fast charging and wants your device to fast charge, then search for the fast charger which is compatible with your device. If you didn't, then your device will charge at a normal speed, as usual.

Drain your battery completely before recharging

It's not just a myth, it's a joke which I am hearing from years. Drain you mobile battery completely before charging :) :) :)

We are in an advance Era, where 99.9999% of the smartphone is running on the batteries which are Li-ion batteries. Yes, this myth was applied at the time when they are mobiles which are running on NiMH and NiCad batteries, but today it is not the original fact.

Even if you saw or analyze, the lithium-ion batteries will charge faster and last longer when they do not charge from 0 to 100. That's the fact.

Charging your phone overnight kills the battery

Another largely circulated rumor is "if you keep plugged in your mobile for charging overnight, it kills the battery and reduces the battery life cycle.

But the reality is:- today mostly smartphone is coming up with the technology through which when your device is 100% charged, after that your device will not catch up the Extra power and let the entire charging system cool.

Mobile phones can cause fire at fuel stations

When we visit many petrol pumps, there is a notice written on the board that "don't relieve calls or use the Mobile device while you're at the petrol pump. And that main reason behind this is:- using mobile at the petrol pump leads to charge the negative energy through which a blast can also happen.

But the reality is:- for proving this myth wrong, there was an experiment conducted in the US where a smartphone kept in front of an area which is full of fuel and many calls made and receive in front of that area, as well as many activities are also done on it to heat up the mobile, and all of these are done remotely. The result of this experiment is "Nothing Happened". Hence proved!

Larger battery means more battery life

Battery life depends on the amount of power that your device consumes. So, if you have a device with energy efficient screen and better electronics, it will consume less battery and might last even longer on the same amount of charge, irrespective of the battery size. On comparing various phones, I found that Samsung phones offer an extended battery life irrespective of the network (3G/4G) used.

Mobile phone emit radiation

This is probably the most widely spread rumor about the ill-effects of a mobile device. In all honesty, this does not make sense. Mobile phone companies have to pass a strict Specific Absorption Rating (SAR) test which guarantees that the phone does not emit enough radiation that can cause harm to the user.

So, next time when you are buying a phone, look out for that SAR rating. I recently compared a bunch of Samsung phones to zero in on the one I wanted to buy. The site also gave me a comprehensive list of similar products such as Motorola, Lenovo, Micromax, etc., its features as well as pricing from various ecommerce websites.

Even in Airplane mode, mobile phones interrupt with navigation

Modern avionics are pretty sophisticated. A bunch of mobile phones cannot cause any harm to navigation or guidance systems. If that was not the case, we all would be asked to keep our phones inside the check-in baggage and would not be allowed to carry it on board.

Don’t make calls while charging the phone as it might explode

There have been cases of mobile phones exploding while people were making calls when charging the phone. These were a result of faulty batteries and not the phone.

These are the 10 common misconceptions about mobile devices that you should be aware of. Do you have anything else to add to this? Do let us know in the comment section below.
