It's a fact that batteries are among the most crucial hardware components of a nowadays' smartphone. It doesn't matter if your gadget runs on the most advanced octa-core silicon brain, has more RAM than an entry-level netbook, or the largest camera ever strapped to a smartphone - if your rear-positioned juicer is sub-par and fails to deliver an adequate battery life, you'd probably quickly forget about the rest of your smartphone's show-stopping features. What's more, batteries are the components most susceptible to wear over time.
Undoubtedly, you've seen many guides that provide you with battery-saving tips and tricks, but the majority of these tend to gravitate around several perpetual mantras: "turn off these features", "uninstall the following apps", "don't use these features of your smartphone", etc. If you follow all of these tips mechanically, you'll end up with a phone that's everything else but "smart", and that's something nobody strives for.
Today, we'll be taking a closer look at Li-Ion batteries and what are some tips for prolonging their lives. We'll also bust some myths that seem to still be circulating in the air.
