You Should Avoid These 5 Common Phone Charging Mistakes

If you want your phone battery to last longer, you must avoid these charging mistakes at all costs.

Many phone users tend to complain that their device’s batteries discharge quickly. They also typically blame the product manufacturer for this issue; however, the manufacturer isn’t always at fault.

Waiting for the Battery to reach low levels before charging

Avoid waiting for your battery to reach a critically low level before charging. The effect of this on your phone battery is not immediate, but over time it begins to manifest and it eventually stresses out your phone battery (yes, batteries get stressed too) and shortens the battery life.

Keeping your phone case on while charging

Your phone typically emits heat when charging. To avoid exposing your device to ambient temperatures, it’s advisable to remove the phone case while charging your phone so that the heat emitted from your phone while charging can escape. This way you can prevent your device from becoming hotter and potentially overheating when charging.

Charging your phone in the wrong places

You should mind where you charge your phone, because not doing so can negatively affect your battery capacity. Phones have a temperature range they can function normally and charging your phone in a hot area can raise the temperature and stress the battery out.

Charging your phone overnight

The least you’ll sleep throughout the night is most likely going to be between 5 to 8 hours, your smartphone battery typically only needs 2 to 3 hours to fully charge. Charging your phone overnight, constantly stresses your phone battery each night.

Plugging whatever charger fits

This especially applies to smartphones. Most smartphones use a micro USB for its chargers and for this reasons most people tend to switch and swap chargers since it fits into and works on their phones. However, this is not appropriate and in the long run it can negatively affect your phone battery.

Best TV For The Year 2021

Best TV For The Year 2021

Like most big purchases, the best TV is the one that will fit your space and budget. An OLED television will give you the best picture quality but it’s expensive and might not be available in the size you want.

That’s where this list comes in. I’ve gathered the best TVs I’ve reviewed at different prices, sizes, and technologies — models with HDR, Ultra HD 4K, QLED, 120Hz and HDMI 2.1 and more — based on my years of experience and side-by-side comparisons in CNET’s test lab (for the foreseeable future, that’s my basement). My focus is on finding the best picture quality for the money, regardless of TV brand.

In my comparisons I look at things like contrast ratio, local dimming, color and uniformity, gaming input lag and refresh rate, as well as the number of HDMI ports.

All of these TVs have great picture quality, and while 4K resolution is nice, it’s not necessarily needed for an excellent viewing experience.

The other critical factor was how well the television supports your streaming app (or apps) of choice, like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube TV, Sling TV, and Disney Plus. Here are my recommendations for the best TV to watch your favorite TV shows, movies, and more, with the following notes to keep in mind:

  • Unless noted otherwise, all of the prices you’ll see are for 65-inch models.
  • Looking for specific screen size? Check out: 32-inch TVs, 43-inch TVs, 55-inch TVs, 65-inch TVs, and 75-inch TVs.
  • If you’re worried that the new 2021 TVs announced at CES will have some great feature or picture quality enhancement you’ll miss out on if you buy a TV now, relax. TVs are generally a mature technology and our advice is that if you need a new TV now, you should get one.
  • Most of the TVs below came out in 2020. The new 2021 models just started becoming available but I haven’t reviewed any yet. Where applicable I’ve included a “2021 outlook” section with everything I know (so far) about these TVs’ replacements.
  • This list is updated periodically.

Android 12 Gets Biggest Design

We finally got a good look at Android 12 and its new lock screen, notifications, and color redesign at Google I/O. Here’s what you need to know.

Google’s Android 12 operating system, which was fully unveiled Tuesday at the Google I/O developer conference, represents the most significant design change in the OS’s history, with personalizable color palettes, updated notifications, and faster, battery-saving performance.

During the Google I/O keynote, Sameer Samat, vice president of Android, stated that there are now more than 3 billion active Android devices worldwide. Android 12 is now available as a public beta (here’s how to download Android 12), with a general release expected in September. The new features of Android 12 may vary depending on your device. When you select your wallpaper on Google Pixel phones, a feature known as color extraction will be activated.

Another aspect of the redesign involves more fluid motions, animations, and touch responses. You’ll notice an always-on display and more adaptive notifications; for example, when you dismiss them on the lock screen, the clock will become larger, letting you know you’re up to date.

Full Details Of Why Ghanaians Are To Re-Register Their Sim Card

Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia says Ghanaians will have to re-register their sim cards with the Ghana Card beginning July or lose them.

According to him, the move is part of efforts to digitize the economy for enhanced accountability and economic growth.

“I expect that the minister for communication and Digitalization will soon announce that we will all from the end of June or maybe beginning of July this year everybody will have to register their sim with a national ID otherwise we lose that sim.

“This will give us identity for a real momo transaction then take away issues of Fraud from Sim box or through momo so we can discard all of that,” Dr. Bawumia said at the 5th CEO Summit in Accra, where he was guest of honor.

The exercise is to add to the country’s central database with unique IDs. The process of registration can be done on one’s phone and does not require a visit to a Telco outlet.

The Ghana Card is used to validate a person’s identity at airports, borders, police check posts and while booking tickets. The emerging Ghana railway travel may require a person to carry their Ghana Card especially if e-tickets are introduced.

Currently, there are more than 40 million mobile phone users in Ghana.
