Navigating the world of technology can sometimes result in more questions than answers. But don’t worry, we’re here to help. Each week, we’ll answer some of your burning tech questions. Like any techie friend would do.
Michael Josh: There are many ways to conserve power like lowering brightness or turning off WiFi, Bluetooth or LTE. But, I’d hate to suggest any of that, as it comes at the expense of usability. While phones are getting faster and more powerful, battery technology hasn’t quite caught up yet. Instead manufacturers have resorted to improving charging speeds. For now your best bet is to carry around a power bank, seriously.
Monch: This may come as a shock to you, but the Facebook app is a battery hog on mobile devices. Your phone’s battery life (and storage) will benefit greatly from deleting the app. Don’t worry; you can still access your account via your phone’s browser, just as you would on your computer. Another tip: Turn on battery-saver mode when you’re not using your device or while it’s in your pocket.
