10 Detailed Hacks To Keep Your PC/Smartphone Alive



On the First section, we will be looking at the Smartphone Tips


Smartphone Tips:

1. Grab A Good Memory Or SD Card:

Now i think i have to state the reason why we need a good memory or SD card. Well having an SD card should reduce the amount of space which is heaped on your phone's internal memory. Now if your phone memory is kind of occupied or filled up, this could lead to your Smartphone freezing or hanging unnecessarily. As we all know, our smartphone's internal memory is actually our device root storage which may contain our Android's system files, settings backup, app data, obb files etc; so a virus attack on this location could be fatal and this could lead to data loss.

Tip: Deleting files recklessly on the Android folder could lead to instant data wipe or reset of your Smartphone. Please thread with caution.


2. Only Make Use Of Recommended Chargers:

Making use of any kind of charger for your Smartphone could kill and suck up your battery juice thus reducing your battery's life span. I know we all want our battery to zapp from 32 to 60% in a period of 30 minutes even without our smartphone having the fast-charge capability but know that it's doing your battery more harm than good. In getting a good charger, you could visit your Smartphone's store or outlets and buy the recommended charger for your device


3. Don't Install App From Unknown Sources:

I know this might sound hard for us to do since almost all the app we make use of Sometimes aren't from play store but i really think it's worth it. You might not know how badly installing app from unknown sources could harm your Smartphone.


Below are the dangers of installing apps from unknown sources:
  • Malware could come into your device via apps from unknown sources
  • Key loggers could find their way into your smartphone
  • Unknown apps could pose greater risk to your device
  • Sometimes, it is not worth it.
Now with this feature turned off, only apps which are Google verified could be installed on your Smartphone.

If you wish to keep this settings on, then you're on your own.


4. Don't Overcharge Your Smartphone's Battery:

How do you feel if you're being forced to eat more after getting full?? i guess you feel uncomfortable right??. Well that's how your Smartphone feel after getting to 100% and still being forced to take more. Your Smartphone being left in the power source even after getting to 100% could damage the battery life badly and it's advisable by me To keep your Smartphone's battery between 80 and 30% at all times if possible.

Tip:
 Making use of your Smartphone even while connected to the power source could weaken your battery power but some people won't hear word.


5. Uninstall Those Idle and Unknown App

If there are properties have not been on active use for a long time, I think you should dispose them off and the same logic applies to your Smartphone. You should do a perodical check-up for unused and idle apps. if any of these app are found, i think you should uninstall them immediately.


Now to see all the app that are installed on your Smartphone, you should follow these steps:
  • Move to settings from your Android menu
  • Click on App and Notifications ( This might vary according to    your device. In my case am using Tecno Pop 2 power)
  • Click on see all app and this should display all apps which are Installed on your Android device)
  • Move through the list and uninstall any unreasonable or unknown app from your device
These are some of the few tips that could help keep your Smartphone up and running smoothly.

RAM which is an acronym for Random Access Memory  is the storage memory that is used by your computer system. You should know that for your computer system to run programs of higher quality efficiently, you actually need to increase your RAM. low RAM might cause your computer to slow down especially when you're performing large files at once.
The most common RAM size you can find in everyday laptop PCs nowadays is 8GB. Some lower-end models come with 4GB and in some cases only 2GB. Higher-end mainstream laptop models oftentimes feature 12GB and 16GB. You can find high-performance gaming laptops and mobile workstations with 24 or even 32 Gigabytes.

To Find Your Current RAM size, follow these steps below:
  • Open the Run command by making use of the "Windows" + "R" key simutenously
  • Type in CMD into the Run command box and click on Enter
  • On the CMD interface, type in "Systeminfo" and click on Enter
Your current RAM size is represented by the "Physical Memory Column" 


5. Stop Unnecessary Programs From Running When You Startup Your Computer:

You should know that whenever you switch on your computer system, the OS isn't the only thing that loads up. Some other irrelevant programs might also be waiting in line to start up too. If you're Startup list is clogged up, this could have a heavy impact on your RAM usage right from your system startup.

To check the softwares that startup when you switch on your PC, follow these steps below:
  • Open the run command making use of the "Win" + "R" key simultaneously
  • Type in "msconfig" without quote and hit the Enter key
  • Choose Startup to see a list of all program that run when you boot up your computer system and un-check any program you think is unnecessary from the list.
