RAM Usage

We commonly think that buying a 6 GB or more RAM phone will make our Experience good and the phone faster. But the Reality is not the same. Its good to have more RAM but if we compare a 6 GB Variant mobile with 8 GB variant one, we often think that 8 GB would be faster. Higher RAM Makes Memory Management easier i.e; you can open more apps in your phone without the worry for reloading, but speed or performance of the app would be the same.

2. WiFi and Bluetooth drain Battery when the Phone is Idle:-

It is One of the most common conceptions we have in our mind that leaving Bluetooth or WiFi ON while the phone is idle will drain the battery. Guys, We are living in 2019 and the Radios in today’s Time are so smart and power efficient that you need not worry about them, whether they are ON or OFF. They consume battery in about points in the whole day. Still if you care about that too, you can turn them off and handle the problem that “Ohh, My Bluetooth was off and the speakers were Not connected”.

3. Charging through PowerBanks is not good:-

WhatsApp Links

We know that messages have privacy in WhatsApp, but guys please note that the contents of messages have nothing to do with the privacy and security. We often receive messages that click on the link and install the latest updates or click on the link and your colour of WhatsApp will change. Guys Please don’t click on those links as they may install such software that may have security issues. WhatsApp Never send such links.

7. Airplane Mode Charging:-

Airplane Mode Charging

It is popular among the crowd that putting the phone on Airplane mode decreases our charging time. It is true, but it does by a minimal factor of about 10-15 minutes. In that charging period phone becomes dumb and is of no use. So it is better to either keep the phone switch off as it charges more faster than Airplane mode or don’t use Airplane mode.

8. You Should Drain Your Battery before next charge:-

This Myth is also very famous. But this is not true. We are degrading our battery’s Life by doing so. Almost all the smartphones use Lithium Ion batteries which perform best when they are kept between 20-80%. The older Batteries used to have the thing that they should be full charged for best performance, but not the modern ones.

9. Charging Your Phone Overnight Kills the Battery:-

  This is another myth that was true at one point, but as battery and charging technologies have improved, it’s now completely false. Older batteries weren’t smart enough to realise when they’re full, and overcharging them consistently led to decreased battery life over time. Today’s Charging mechanism are smarter. Once the Phone is full charged it stops drawing electricity. Hence Be free and charge. 

10. Automatic Brightness Settings Save Battery:-

This is completely false. The idea is, by using the on-board light sensor of a smartphone, it can automatically calibrate the ideal brightness setting to save power.The reality is, this might save you a bit of battery by dimming your screen when appropriate, but the light sensor actually uses more power over the course of the day by constantly pinging your CPU to process the data it collects and decide if a lower (or higher) brightness setting is appropriate.

These were some of the Top 10 Smartphone myths we face in our day and day life. Hence the Objective of Article was to remove these myths from our mind. Hoping that We were successful.
