Some myths about smartphones that are true sometimes
Form radiations to freezing the battery, there are many rumors about smartphones. Here we are going to see which urban legends are false and which ones are real.
Let’s see what’s real and false!
The smartphone can cook an egg
Although smartphones emit radiations, these are not enough to fry an egg. You need 7000 phones to make this happen. It can only warm an egg. Based on false assumptions.
A myth about this starts in 2000, when an article was published in Wymsey Village Web heaving a statement –how to cook an egg using two phones- after which this prank is used everywhere.
A smartphone is grubbier than toilet
Yeah! It is because people check their phones 52X per day. Touching spreads germs.Smartphone lug 10X more bacteria than toilet seats that includes
Clean your hone using alcohol wipes and kill the germs. Don’t trust the tech. It is a true statement.
Absence of SIM card Prevent Tracking
Another false statement based on action movies. Everything you see in movies is not always right. Tracking is still possible even if you remove the sim card from your cell phone. It is because of the presence of a battery on the phone. It doesn’t matter either the cell is powered off or on.
If you want to prevent tracking, you should keep in mind the following things.
Interference of phones with hospitals, planes, gas stations
It is one of the wrongly figured out facts about smartphones. They don’t interfere with medical equipment or airplanes.
There is much news that often blames cellphone usage is the cause of fire at pumps, but when investigation proceeds, they find another reason for this. That is why there is no registered case about a cellphone that causes combustion.
How many of you know your phone?
1 in 3 Americans has 5G-capable smartphones. Out of which 62% claim its better service. But many of the counties don’t have 5G coverage.
Myths about charging and battery
Technology-based problems are regarded as myths because this wasn’t developed that much yet. But now the technologist resolved the problems.
some of the hilarious myths about batteries are:
Batteries Have Memory
When the smartphone is new, its battery does not last for a long time. It is thought that Li-ion batteries damage over time. Older Ni-Cad batteries can develop a “memory.” It can be reduced by fully draining the battery before each charge.
Your battery Drops to Zero
The process of dropping your battery to zero let Li-ion battery tire out soon before time. The partial charging method can lower the damage. If at 20% charge your battery stop working suddenly, then dropping your battery to zero can re-calibrate the battery level sensor.
Freeze Your Phone
Extreme temperate can damage the Li-ion battery faster. To lower the chance of damage, if it exposed to extreme temperatures, bring it to room temperature before charging.
Overnight ChargingDue to advanced technology, smartphones have built-in protection chips. That helps stop charging when it reaches 100%. When it reaches 99% automated program trickle of power, bumps it back up. This might increase the temperature and damage the battery.
In 2019, Apple introduced a new thing -Optimized Battery Charging- based on machine learning. It can control your habits and stop overcharging. There is also a Wi-Fi smart plug that helps overnight charring safely.
USE of KNOCK-OFF cables
Inexpensive, Knock-off, or lightning charging cables can cause problems. Don’t use cord and connectors that are not compatible with your cellphone. It can cause long-lasting battery problems and can damage phone chips.
For the iPhone, use the cable that has labeled made for iPhone. For USB-C, go for a wire that marked Certified USB charger. There are 80% of Americans that have smartphones. But do you think they know how to get full advantage of their devices?
Some False Smartphone Hacks
Protective screens can avoid scratches. Now a day’s smartphones already designed so to prevent scratches on the screen. Screen protectors are less durable than glass screens.
Gorilla Glass display is so sharp that even the use of a knife can’t harm its surface. Sand, rocks, and concrete can impose risk. The screen protector is necessary in case of hiking or mounting, along the beach-side, and if you frequently drop your phone.
Date Damage by Magnet
Another false assumption after having advanced technology. Like tapes and floppy disks, the magnet can wipe the date from your smartphone too. The static magnetic field cannot affect solid-state drives. A strong magnet can do permanent damage to your smartphone. It can magnetize steel parts of the phone that interfere with the phone compass. When navigation apps are not on the working mode, it cannot determine your location and orientation.
How your smartphone wipe-out
If you delete your sensitive data intentionally or unintentionally by yourself or someone else. Also, if you logged out from all of your accounts can lead to data loss. If you did a factory reset, then there will be no data remain on your smartphone.
