Smartphone Myths

Smartphones have been mainstream for about ten years. But, myths have been around for years and not likely to go away. Every type of technology has its myths, from PCs to smartphones. From software to hardware, these myths just would not go away.

Listed below are some smartphone myths.

Drain Your Phone’s Battery Before Charging It

Well, most people don’t actually let their phone’s battery drain fully before charging it. Also some of us do not charge the battery if it has reached 80 percent. Due to the older rechargeable battery technology with a “memory effect “.

With new smartphones, you don’t need to drain the battery completely as they have modern built-in Lithium Ion batteries. You can plug it anytime or leave whole night to charge. Basically, you can charge your smartphone’s battery whenever you like, and as much as you like.

Should Only Use The Charger That Came With The Device

Modern smartphones use USB chargers, which are standardised. As long as a USB charger can provide enough power, you can use it to charge your smartphone. In fact, can be used for any other device supporting USB charging.

Even if you have a powerful USB charger, use it as it will only draw as much power as it needs to charge a particular device. It is unlikely to damage the device. In fact, with more powerful charger your smartphone will charge faster. You can plug into a less powerful charger, but will not charge quickly or it may not charge at all if there is not enough power.

More Megapixels, A Better Camera

Megapixels are not just a myth for smartphone cameras, but practically any type of digital cameras. Myth is larger number of megapixels is always better. A megapixels means just one million pixels, and the number tells you how many pixels a photo you will get from the camera will contain.

In a nutshell, cramming more and more smaller pixels onto a sensor is not always a great idea. For example, compared to a 16-megapixel camera, 8-megapixel camera sensor of the same size will have larger pixels, which can let in more light. Overall, the important fact is quality of sensor, lens and image processing software is also very important. Don’t just compare the camera specifications of smartphones, but look at the actual photos taken with different models and compare them.
