Time for a new mobile phone? It’s something to keep in mind

Link: Change your phone in 3 easy steps

Evolution is fast forward for mobile phones. What used to be just a “mobile phone”, and not much more, is now most of the tech gadgets you need, bundled into one powerful device. But with development, the options and alternatives also increase, it can be difficult to know which priorities. Here are some tips along the way.

Long battery life

Today’s mobile phones need a lot of power to handle all the advanced applications and features on offer. A few years ago, exhausted battery issues were very common, and a fully charged phone was rarely enough for the whole day if used heavily. The fault wasn’t just the battery power, often apps and services used more power than they needed at the time.

But now the evolution has largely taken place. Modern phones, like the Samsung Galaxy S21, are designed with the intention to last you all day. Plus, you have access to wireless battery sharing where you can share your power with another Qi-enabled device – your friend’s cell phone or wireless headphones, for example. And when you’re already low on battery (and your friends are sharing the battery), you can turn on Power Mode to extend battery life. Then the phone prevents background apps from using your Wi-Fi, mobile data, and power-hungry features.
