Seriously, not doing anything fun on your phone is the number ten way to make your cell phone battery last longer, according to a column in today’s edition of The Punch.
And here are the full details from the article:
If you have fun on your phone, your battery life will dramatically decrease. Accessing the web, playing games, navigating via GPS and capturing photos or video are not things to do while you’re in the middle of nowhere without a charger. Do these when there is a guarantee for your charging source.
We get playing games and capturing photos and videos, but since when did accessing the web and navigating via GPS become classified strictly as fun?
What if you are in the middle of nowhere and your spouse calls about a medical emergency that requires urgent funds – and you need to use your mobile web browser to effect an online transfer? Would that be classified as fun?
We can think of a number of other serious uses that someone could need web browsing for when in the middle of nowhere without a charger.
As for GPS, one would think that the primary purpose of GPS is for navigating especially when you are in the middle of nowhere.
We do think that this number ten point should read: “Don’t do anything not necesarry on your phone“. That sounds better.
Or are we nitpicking?
