The Problem – Battery Life Starts Worsening With Time
Manufacturers use lithium-ion batteries for their phones which mustn’t be too big or heavy to fit in a slender smartphone, however, this leads to terrible battery life issues. There are many do’s and don’ts to extend its life for which, I have discussed the possible prospects below.

The Description –
Suffering from decreased battery life is a perennial aspect of having a smartphone. The battery life is based on the cycles it has gone through. A cycle refers to the discharge of a battery from full to drain after which, the user charges it. As per a Telegraph report, batteries tend to go through 300 to 500 full cycles before decreasing their maximum capacity of charge to 70%. This further depletes with the number of cycles the battery goes through.

The Solution –
The Lithium-Ion battery works based on memory effect which means, it will record its maximum capacity as per the charge provided previously. Getting a full charge can increase the output of any nickel-cadmium batteries before it runs out of juice to retains only 70% or less of its total capacity.

Leaving the smartphone charged for long hours or overnight may not hamper the phone but it can surely disrupt the performance of the batteries since it receives power profusely even after reaching its full capacity. Both iOS and Android suffer from this issue which can also the with the steps stated above.

Another way around to get the most of your smartphone battery is to do partial charges and discharges. This, in turn, escalates the performance of the battery with over 1,200 and 1,500 life cycles. Keeping the phone in airplane mode (when not required), turning off Bluetooth or Wifi, decreasing the screen brightness are other alternatives to save the juice in the battery.

The Problem – Sometimes, phones do drop on the floor cracking their screen
It is one of the common problems where the user reports cracked screen or back panel due to falling off a height. Electronic devices such as phones aren’t meant to withstand sudden huge falls which could hamper your budget.

The Description –
It usually happens when you are playing a sport or while driving, riding or when you are walking on the street and suddenly someone bumps into you causing your phone to fall to the ground. Irrespective of on which edge it falls, these delicate devices tend to crack open, crack their screens or back panels, scratches and dents on their edges and more.

The Solution –
The simple solution to this simple but frequent problem (often if you are clumsy) is to try the phone cases. If you love your phone dearly, spend it a quality shock resistant phone case to prevent any physical damage to the device. You can put a screen protector, glass or transparent scratch guard to prevent impact on the screen.

Moreover, you can also pick up the option for smartphone insurance too. There are some cases which provide your device with water resistant properties making it more lucrative than other cases.

The Problem – Bloatware, Crashing of Apps & More
Thousands of apps are available in Apple Store and Google Play Store and in fact, there are millions. These apps help the user to complete their tasks efficiently, but what if it crashes? Apps are prevalent to crash often than expected.

The Description –
While using a savings manager, the app got crashed. Isn’t it frustrating? Mobile applications are faster, quicker, consumes less bandwidth and more but they are often the one which crashes a lot. In fact, PCMag reported that the applications on Apple crash more than the apps on Android but I think, both these dominating OSes have their fair share of app crashes.

Then there is bloatware found in abundance, especially in the Chinese counterpart of Android phones such as Xiaomi, Coolpad, and others. This bloatware takes up space on your phone’s memory but cannot be deleted or removed no matter how irrelevant they are.

The Solution –
When an app crashes on your device, try to delete the cache memory either for the specific app or the phone altogether. It will allocate the extra resources required for the app you are running. Moreover, Android also features force stop, uninstall, and other such options.

You can also troubleshoot the devices on limit their restarts after a closure. You can also download a legit application that works well by closing all the apps running in the background. There are many applications available to remove the bloatware and get the excess space on your ROM that you weren’t able to use before of these irrelevant and unnecessarily preloaded apps.

The Problem – My Phone Runs Slow
Excessive usage of the phone discourages its peak performance. Also, other factors such as not enough RAM, excess use of the resource, apps running in the background and too many apps that hamper the performance on any phone resulting in slowing down.

The Description –
Recently, Apple reported slowing down their previous generation of iPhones to discourage their sales and escalate the sales of the newer generation of phones. According to Statista, with the rollout of updates of iOS, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, etc have reported peak slow performance.

Similarly, Android has the same problem with its smartphone where the RAM (Read Only Memory) is the major issue. Heavy Android Apps take up most of the RAM memory available saving temporary files in it while permanent files are saved in ROM causing the device to succumb its performance slowing it down exponentially.

The Solutions –
For Apple iPhones, trying out newer iOS could disrupt the performance of your phones. Although the iOS updates are backward compatible, lack of hardware compatibility leads to decreased performance. The solution for it is to use the apps more efficiently in the new iOS version or upgrade to the next iPhone.

For Android, the solution to this problem is to clear off the excessive RAM consumed by background apps. You can do it by going to the Settings>>Applications/Phone>>Running>>App>>Clear Cache or Force Stop to stop its operations all at once. Or you can download apps that diagnose the surge in RAM usage and free up the memory for better performance.

The Problem – Smartphone Addiction Is still Huge!
Smartphone manufacturers invest millions in the Research and Development of their products and reveal their ultra-powered smartphones on every major occasion so that their sales can increase. Smartphones have triggered addiction in the people which is a massive problem.

The Description –
Statistically speaking, there are more than 2.1 billion mobile phone users across the globe. More than 88% of the Americans have smartphones. App developers release new apps and updates which keeps people glued to their devices. The accessibility and availability of services offered by the smartphones have made people dependent on their phones.

At an average, a person checks his/her cell phone over 110 times a day. 40% of the people use their phones in the toilet, 12% use it while in the shower, 56% and 75% of people check their phones before and after sleep respectively. Out of the total car accidents that occur, mobile phones are responsible for 26% of the accidents. According to Daily Infographic, 75% of the total users text while driving their car.

The Solution –
Have a glance at the statistics mentioned above and you will know that people are actually more addicted to their phones similar to the ones who are addicted to any toxic substances. Getting rid of the phone once and for all is not the solution. People do become restless when they can’t or when they don’t check their phones. Limiting its usage and for productivity, purposes is a sound solution for this massive widespread problem.

There is the host of others problems with smartphones such as call drops, expensive tariff plans, heating of the phone due to overcharging or over usage. Then, incompatibility with certain devices, hardware, software, peripherals, applications. The growing interdependence on the smartphone can have catastrophic circumstances if not limited or used in proper manner.
