Early 2000, Nigeria began to witness a huge revolution in communication. South Africa’s telecommunication giant, MTN, came into the Nigerian market before the emergence of Glo Nigeria and the rest of them.
The first device I used was Nokia 1110 (Feature phone), having bought SIM card for a few thousand, today, it’s almost free. What a world! Meanwhile, lots of people killed themselves because of all these things.
After the reign of feature phones, which are still in existence; smartphone came on board. And that became almost the highest point of innovation in the telecommunications sector, especially in Nigeria.
The demand for smartphones, obviously, had deepened over the years. And for the past seven years of using smartphones, I observed a few things that were wrong. Sadly, most people still make these mistakes.
Although there is a setup on phones that allows it to stop charging when it is full, constant overnight charging of phones is wrong.
Using wrong Accessories
Every manufacturer of smartphones has their specific type of accessories that are to be used with a particular product. Most people use wrong accessories such as chargers, USB, etc. which is wrong.
The primary reason for this is because such accessories are cheaper than the original and authentic ones.
Use of Live Homepage Wallpapers
Using live wallpaper looks cool. But, we are working with a battery that needs to be often fed. This continually drains the battery, even when background light is off.
Downloading and Installing too many Antivirus
Some time ago, when my friend gave me his phone to help him resolve an issue, I saw that he had up to 4 antiviruses. I was amazed. This is wrong. Some of these apps are the free versions and are not updated.
Charging and using the phone simultaneously
This one is prevalent. Loading of your phone and making use of it at the same time is very wrong.
Aside from the fact that the battery will get spoilt, we keep moving the phone while it is plugged, this makes the contact point of the charger to be shaking, which then leads to it being shortened.
Network Connections Always on
Connections include NFC, Bluetooth, Wifi, Data connection, Location. This cuts your battery life by half.
Downloading anything downloadable
Most phone users download everything they find, especially ads that pop up on browsers. This is wrong
