Since the advent of mobile phones, a number of things have changed, especially the way we communicate with each other. Mobile phones have become a very important part of our lives. We have become so used to our mobile phones that it is difficult to imagine life without them. Since mobile phones are so popular, there are some myths which have been surrounding them. Here we bring you those myths surrounding mobile phones.
Mobile phones cause brain cancer: One of the most porminent myths about mobile phones is that they cause brain cancer. There have been a number of independent studies which have not found any sort of evidence that use of mobile phones causes brain cancer. However, it is advised that you should talk on the phone for not more than 30 minutes.
Excessive Charging destroys the battery life: Many people believe that overcharging of the battery leads to reduced life span of the battery. These days the mobile phones which we have are called smartphones for no reason. As soon as the battery is fully charged, they automatically cut off the power supply. However, it is suggested that you charge your phone to 80%-90% of your battery life, in order to use it at an optimum level.
Closing all apps makes the phone run faster: This myth has come from the fact that any app requires some space in the RAM to run, if an app which is not in use is closed, it will result in a faster phone. The smartphones which we use have already a built-in feature which automatically closes the apps that are not in use.
Exposing a phone to a magnet will remove its data: There is no way that a magnet can erase the entire memory off the phone. The reason being that phones have Solid State Drives (SDD) or flash drives which are resistant to magnets. Even if you are using an HDD, then you will need a magnet of at least 1.1 Tesla to affect the working of the mobile phone.
