This will allow you to use the gadget longer.
The phone, like any other gadget, can get a “sunstroke” in the summer and fail. Here’s how to avoid it.
According to experts, there are four simple steps that will save your smartphone in the summer:
- Keep your gadget away from direct sunlight . If a smartphone, tablet or other gadget overheats, it will simply turn off. The same thing can happen with hypothermia. In general, experts advise using devices only at temperatures from -10 to +35 degrees Celsius. And turning off is not the worst thing that can happen to a phone. Under the influence of high temperatures, the battery in the smartphone may swell, and the AMOLED display may be damaged.
- If possible, remove additional covers and protective films . The fact is that such accessories only prevent the smartphone from dissipating heat. This is especially true of plastic, leather, silicone cases.
- Use resource-intensive applications as little as possible . Since running such programs and games consumes a lot of smartphone resources (as well as watching videos in excellent quality), this increases the temperature of the phone’s elements and battery. As a result, overheating may occur.
- Don’t use LTE if the signal is bad . High-speed data transfer with a low signal level will only create additional load on the processor. And this will also affect the heating of the device.
