Does charging your phone overnight ruin the battery?

Many people have the habit of charging the phone before going to bed and they let the phone to be charged overnight. Now, does this ruin the battery life of mobile phones? A common question among smartphone users, we are here to answer it.

Nowadays, most of the mobile phones’ batteries are equipped with overcharge protection circuit. This circuit cuts off the power supply once the battery is charged completely. So, leaving your phone overnight will not ruin the battery of the mobile phone. Moreover, manufacturers carry out comprehensive quality control test before shipping the product to the market. So, you should not worry about overcharging your mobile phone these days.

But this doesn’t mean that you can overcharge it. The battery can be charged and discharged frequently, but it will gradually degrade over time. The capacity and lifetime of the battery will be reduced if it is overcharged often.

If you leave your cell phone on charge before sleeping and wake up in the morning, you will find that your smartphone has stopped charging. In fact, most of the smartphones have these features these days. When the phone is fully charged, it will automatically stop charging, so there is no need to worry about damaging the battery. On the contrary, playing mobile phones on charge can damage the battery. This will also decrease the charging speed of the battery and the temperature of the mobile phone will also increase. The battery might even explode in the hot climate.

When should I charge my mobile phone?

Mobile phone users are also confused about what is the right time to charge a mobile phone? You should not wait for mobile to discharge completely before charging it again. The most suitable time for charging your mobile phone is when the battery life reaches 30%. Moreover, you should not wait for the phone’s battery life to drop below 10% before rushing to charge. When the battery is below 10%, the radiation coming out from mobile phones will multiply. The radiation will be even higher if you make a phone call during this period. So at this time, it is better to plug your mobile phone on charge before it becomes too late to charge it.

Finally, let me remind you that it is best to stay away from charging mobile phones while sleeping. Don’t keep charging mobile phones on your bed. Radiation is one aspect but safety is more important. The phone will automatically cut off the power supply after a full charge but it can’t be guaranteed that the power supply will be stopped accurately all the time. Moreover, not all phones can automatically stop the flow of power supply. If the battery is old and the temperature is too high, it might explode and result in serious consequences.

Is it good to shut down your phone once a day?

Is it good to shut down your mobile phone once a day? Do you have the habit of turning off your phone before going to bed at night? What should you do?

Some mobile phone users think that they must shut down their phone every day. They think that shutting the phone will let it rest and eventually extend its service life.

There are other users who think that mobile phones are not a machinery machine that requires rest. So, you can run it continuously without shutting it down.

Well, the fact is that it is better to turn off the mobile once a week. We can compare a phone with a human being. Just like human being needs rest, the phone also needs irregular breaks. However, it is not compulsory to turn off your mobile phone every day.

There are some negative consequences of switching on and off the mobile phone frequently. Every time we turn it off and on, there will be a large amount of data on the phone to be reloaded and read. This will cause some damages to the memory of the phone. The more the frequency of switching on and off, the greater will be the damages.

If the quality of the mobile phone is good, then the impact is not big and the damage is negligible. However, if there are quality issues in the mobile phone itself, the damages caused by frequent reboot may be seen on the mobile phone.

As mentioned above, after each start, the mobile phone must reload all the data saved in the internal storage. From booting to entering standby, the CPU runs at high speed, and the power consumption increases. This process will consume an extra battery life of around 5%. The possibility is as high as 10%. Of course, the data of different mobile phones is not the same.

And if it is just standby, the phone will automatically adjust the power according to the strength of the signal and optimize the system to save power. Therefore, sometimes turning off the mobile phone is more expensive than keeping it on.

If you don’t reboot your phone for a long time, it will make your phone slow. When the mobile phone is used, it becomes a pile of garbages. This is because, during the running process, various deep junk files are generated in the system, which is generally difficult to clean up, and there are many background programs that are started and run for a long time. Mobile phones will naturally get more garbages over time.

Therefore, it is recommended that the mobile phone be restarted once a week because, during the restart process, the mobile phone will deeply clean up those system garbages and various background programs to complete the self-repair. This is one of the reasons why every time the phone is stuck, it restarts and becomes smooth again.

Warm reminder that some people worry that there will be radiation when they are not shutting down at night. In fact, we don’t have to worry too much about that. The radiation of mobile phones is very small for the human body. They are all within the safe range and can be neglected.

Of course, for some special people, such as pregnant women or children, because the body is weaker and needs better protection, it is necessary to stay away from the mobile phone as much as possible to avoid these tiny radiations.

Files in hidden folders do not appear in applications such as Gallery, Media Players, Emails, etc. You can only access the hidden files by using File managers and some types of system applications.

Second Method

The second method is to create a .nomedia file to hide media files in the existing folders of your Android device. This file doesn’t have any extension. It is an empty document with .nomedia in its file name. When the Android system loads the media data (video, audio, pictures, documents, etc.) from the internal or external storage, it first scans the .nomedia file. If the system finds a folder with this file, the system will not scan and load the files inside this folder.

Precaution: It is important that you can view the hidden files and folders after hiding the files. Otherwise, the hidden files might be inaccessible. So, it is better to keep a backup of the file on some other locations before performing this action.

Lenovo mobile phone officially returned to the Chinese market in June this year and began to adhere to the demand of consumers by launching its flagship product, Lenovo Z5. The recently launched S5 Pro and K5 Pro have been able to attract buyers from all around the world and has strengthened Lenovo’s confidence. Today we will go through the review of Lenovo K5 Pro to find out if it is the best smartphone in the budget segment available in the market today.

Lenovo K5 Pro Review

To start the review let us go through the hardware specifications first. Lenovo K5 Pro is a real, full-screen mobile phone equipped with the performance of the Snapdragon 636 mobile platform, standard 6GB running memory, to ensure a smooth daily experience. It comes with dual speakers and a large 4050mAh battery and Android 8.1. Let’s start the review with the appearance of Lenovo K5 Pro.

Fullscreen with an excellent look

The Lenovo K5 Pro features a 5.99-inch, 18:9 aspect ratio, FHD+ resolution screen with a maximum brightness of 450 nits. From the perspective of physical experience, the color performance of this screen is relatively strong, and the overall perception is at the leading position at the same price. With dual stereo speakers and a stereo Driac sound field, when you watch a video, the auditory effect is immediate. This is also an important reason why it can be called the budget king.

Lenovo k5 pro appearance review

Thanks to the pre-installed latest ZUI system, Lenovo K5 Pro supports U-Touch full-screen gesture operation, replacing the original virtual button with a simple slide, freeing up more screen space for use. Of course, if you are uncomfortable with the gesture operation, you can switch to the original virtual button.

Lenovo k5 pro design review

Known as the budget king, this product is similar to other budget smartphones available in the market. The Lenovo K5 Pro adopts a three-stage metal body, 5.99-inch FHD+ full screen, traditional forehead + chin design. These features are rare for a product that sells for less than $150.

Lenovo k5 pro design review

The unique dual-camera model has formed the Lenovo ID design, which is similar to most mobile phones on the market. The vertically arranged rear dual camera protrudes slightly from the body.

Lenovo k5 pro appearance review

In other respects, Lenovo K5 Pro uses rear fingerprint recognition, Type-C interface, 3.5mm headphone jack, and dual speakers. Overall, Lenovo K5 Pro design has reached the mainstream level, especially considering its price. It is obviously not practical to expect high on appearance in this price range.

ZUI 5.0 system, simple and smooth experience

Lenovo K5 Pro runs the latest ZUI 5.0 system, built on the Android 8.1 kernel. ZUI5.0 is more simple in design, there is no native Android’s two-tier desktop design, the application is tiled on a desktop. The icons are based on the most basic circle and square, more concise.

Lenovo k5 pro UI review

To be honest, Lenovo’s ZUI has never received good feedback from critics and users. In the actual experience, ZUI 5.0’s fluency and the feel of the past have been significantly improved, and I also noticed that ZUI 5.0’s interface has made some changes, such as canceling the bottom of the shortcut menu, to become more mainstream Drop-down menu.

Lenovo k5 pro ZUI review

 

In terms of functions, ZUI introduced a new comprehensive screen gesture, U-Touch, in order to solve the problem of full-screen interaction. The operation mode is similar to the existing one. For those who are accustomed to other gestures, getting started with U-Touch requires a certain learning cost, but it is easy to get used to this operation after a short use.

Lenovo k5 pro U-Touch review

In addition, Lenovo K5 Pro retains some interesting features from the previous version of ZUI. For example, social applications such as WeChat and QQ are dual-app and the data of one app does not affect others and both the apps can run at the same time. This is good for users who have multiple social media accounts.

Lenovo k5 pro User Interface

Thanks to the main audio-visual entertainment, Lenovo K5 Pro has added a game mode. After it is turned on, it can keep the phone in high-performance mode, and automatically clear the background after the game is started, increasing the available memory for the game. Users can also turn off notifications and do not disturb mode, turn off game keypad, and gestures to prevent accidental touches to reduce unnecessary interruptions during gameplay.

Uninterrupted audio and video enjoyment

Lenovo has also got better reviews for audio used in smartphones. The same applies to Lenovo K5 Pro. In order to let users enjoy more realistic sound effects, Lenovo K5 Pro is equipped with two-channel Dirac sound effects. Whether it is external or headphone playback, it can improve the overall sound quality. 24bit quantization precision playback and 192Kb sampling frequency (USB-C digital headphone mode) function can truly restore the sound details so that you can have an immersive sound experience whether you are watching movies or playing games.

Video Playback in Lenovo k5 pro

Lenovo K5 Pro’s unique inverter power-saving design, official data shows that you can increase battery life by 20%. With a large battery capacity of 4050mAh, it can meet the high-intensity use throughout the day, reaching the extreme operation of audio wireless playback for 60 hours. The official 18W fast charge charger can charge the mobile phone to 50% in half an hour, ensuring that it can be used without heavy pressure.

With the home theater, the bottom magnetic speakers and the top 1000mW high-power 2in1 speaker bless ensures high-quality audio and volume.

In addition to visual and audio improvements, Lenovo K5 Pro has also improved on the battery. Users who often use mobile phones to play games and watch movies know that smartphone batteries are not durable and frequent charging affects the user experience.

Lenovo K5 Pro Camera Review

In terms of cameras, Lenovo K5 Pro adopts the mainstream dual-camera combination, i,e, 16+5 megapixels AI dual camera in the back. The back camera supports a double True 3D blur engine that uses 5th generation multi-frame time-domain 3D noise reduction technology. Low light photography is also clear. The 16 megapixels + 5 megapixels AI dual camera in the front supports 9-level depth of field blur and AI beauty.

Look through the sample photos taken by Lenovo K5 Pro. The performance is not bad. The color reproduction is real, the details are reserved. Basically, it meets the needs of daily use. However, the algorithm for HDR is still somewhat biased as there is a noticeable difference between the brightest and darkest parts. Imaging is slower in backlight, night, and portrait modes. However, these problems can be optimized through software upgrades, and there won’t be many problems.

Lenovo K5 Pro Gaming Review

Talking about the Gaming review of Lenovo K5 Pro, it uses the Snapdragon 636 mobile platform.

Hongmeng is the Huawei’s back up operating system

According to the latest news, Google has suspended its business with Huawei. This means that Huawei will have limited access to the Android Operating System and will lose its access to Google Mobile Services (GMS) completely.

So, the question is what will happen next? Although Huawei has not given an official response, Huawei’s BG head, Yu Chengdong, wrote on social media a few days ago, “In addition to having its own chip, Huawei has a competent operating system.”

According to the Chinese sources, Huawei began planning its own operating system “Hongmeng” from 2012. It is intended to become an alternative to Google’s Android Operating system. Yu Chengdong once said, “We have already prepared our own operating system. Once we are prohibited from using these operating systems (from Google and Microsoft), we will be ready to start the B plan.”

Android By Google

Regarding “Hongmeng”, it is reported that the operating system has been optimized for Linux (open source) and has been already tested in some parts of China.

However, Huawei’s internal team said that the self-developed operating system is a backup plan in an extreme environment and is not intended to replace Android.

Regarding the negative impact of Google suspension, some analysts believe that the impact will vary on the domestic and international market. Huawei will not be affected in the domestic market, and the software ecology developed in China is relatively matured.

But for international markets, although Android is an open source project, Google Mobile Services (GMS) still needs to be authorized. GMS includes Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube, Chrome, and Google Play and other top-rated Google apps. If you want to use it, you must obtain Google’s consent and authorization, and you can’t modify it at your will.

This suspension will prevent Huawei from installing Google Mobile Services (GMS) on their upcoming mobile phones. In the absence of GMS on a mobile phone, you can’t officially use Gmail, Chrome, GooglePlay and other Google apps.

Everything has two sides. Although this suspension will hurt Huawei at the present time, it will open a new door for Huawei. Huawei will be forced to concentrate more on developing its own operating system and resources.

If Huawei can bring all the Chinese mobile manufacturers together, Hongmeng replacing Android might not be impossible.
