Battery Hacks And Phone Scams
In an everchanging world of technology, issues like phone scams and battery hacks are common. We will talk about these two most common issues in this article. Hopefully it will help us understand these issues better and give us ideas on how to deal with them.
Have you ever received a phone call from your own number? Now that is something! It might probably give the creeps to some of us. Relax. Nothing is paranormal about it. This is one of those things called phone scams.
This kind of call is a spoof call and a clever trick, too. Once you receive the call and you answer it, you will be asked to give out certain information about yourself, like your social security number, or your credit card and bank accounts.
If this happens and you answer the call, be very, very careful. Never ever give out personal and important information about yourself or your finances. Scammers use this tactic to lure you into their bait and use whatever information they may get from you for their own benefit.
This kind of scam is like a modern and upgraded way of stealing or theft. It is still wrong anyhow and you need to be extra careful about this. How does it work? It works once you answer the call and allow yourself to be fooled by these scammers.
A word of advice, never answer calls from numbers you do not recognize, much so from your own number.
A longer battery life for our gadgets and devices is what most of us “yearn” for. Regardless of how expensive or modern or hi-tech your gadgets and devices are, if their batteries die, they will be useless. Not until you charge them, of course.
Making our batteries last longer is a daily challenge most of us face. But to every problem, there is a solution. There is this thing called “battery hacks” which will make your gadgets’ battery life last longer.
Here are some simple ways to boost your smartphone battery:
- Auto Brightness. Set your phone to auto brightness so it will automatically adjust its brightness depending on the light in your surroundings.
- Avoid Flash Photography. Because of advancement in technology, a perfect image capture does not necessarily mean using a flash. As much as possible, try to avoid using your flash often.
- Use Dark Walpaper. Lighter colors drain your battery faster while darker colors save battery.
- Avoid Direct Sunlight. Sunlight does not only drain your it by lighting up your screen. It can also ruin your battery by heating it up.
Other “tricks” to help boost your battery are: Use WiFi, not data; turn off bluetooth; disable location service; use airplane mode; and avoid over charging.
These are just simple ways to make your smartphone’s battery life last longer. Be sensitive to what is happening to your device and protect it from factors which may cause damage to it.
