Smartphones have become a daily need today. But there are always some myths(false ideas) related to technology and some are related to smartphones also. These smartphone myths are discussed as below:

1.Phone’s battery gets damaged due to overcharging.

Smartphones, nowadays include various features and one such feature is that they can protect them from overcharging. So, there is no harm in leaving your phone on charging overnight. The co-founder of Farbe Technik, Shane Broesky, said “Your phone is very smart. Once it’s fully charged, it knows when to stop the current from coming in to protect from overcharging”. However, there is a kernel of truth to this myth also.

During charging the phone battery temperature increases, which further leads to heating of phone. So if you place your phone under a pillow or in a closed space during overnight charging it can cause serious damage.

2.Use the company recommended charger for your smartphone.
