If it’s been about a year after you bought your Android device, you may have noticed the battery doesn’t last nearly as long as it used to. You may need to plug it in a couple times a day, so you can use it. As frustrating as this is, we have something to share with you – Android battery problems are common.
Batteries aren’t made to last a long time. After charging, decharging, and recharging hundreds of times, the battery begins to lose power. This means that when you charge it to 100%, it’s not really as full as it was when you first started using it. That’s why it’s dying so much sooner.
While you can simply plug it in all of the time to get the device to continue to work, it’s not desirable. After all, mobile devices should be mobile. You want to be able to take it with you wherever you go and not have to worry about plugging it in every hour or so.
The only solution for when an Android battery starts to decharge too quickly is to replace it. With a brand new battery, you will have the charging capacity as you did when you first phone your phone. You may be able to go through the whole day without having to charge your device. Now, that would be a relief, wouldn’t it?
Depending on the device you own, replacing the battery can be difficult. Some of the Samsung Galaxy smartphones have a removable back cover, which means all you have to do is remove and replace the battery. Others have a back cover that is not easily removed, so you need an experienced tech to replace the battery for you.
For Android battery replacement, turn to the best Android repair technicians. We train and certify our technicians, so they have the skills and knowledge to repair Android devices. Contact us today for more information on how we can solve your Android battery problems.

Have you ever been on the phone with someone and he/she says that you sound like you’re in a wind tunnel? If so, you were probably outside in the wind, or you had no idea what the person was talking about. Your phone was working perfectly fine and you can hear the person without a problem. While you may think that person is having a problem instead of you having it, when someone else has the same complaint, you may start to believe that it’s really you.
Before sending your Galaxy S3 for repair to us, we want to see if we can troubleshoot the issue. Follow these steps to see if it helps:
If that doesn’t work, try to fix it with the noise reduction option.
If that doesn’t work, look into the hole where the microphone is and make sure there isn’t any debris in it. If there is, blow into it to see if you can dislodge it. If you can’t, try a small pin, but be careful.
Now, if you’ve done all of this and your microphone is still not working, we can help you. Our certified technicians are trained and have experience working with the Samsung Galaxy, so they can find out what’s wrong and fix it for you. For more information go to our Samsung Galaxy repair page or call us at 1-888-447-3728.

At the one-year anniversary of having your smartphone, you may notice that it doesn’t quite work or look like what it did when you first bought it. This may make you think it’s time to purchase a new one, but we like to save people money. Instead of wasting your money on buying the newest smartphone, read these ways to make yours last.
Some people get anxious when they hit 50% battery life on their phone. They fear it will cut out on them at the worst time possible. To subside their anxiety, they plug it in for a full charge. This is the worst thing you can do because your phone’s battery decreases in longevity each time you charge it.
The best thing to do is to allow your phone to completely die. If that’s just too stressful, plug it in when it hits at least 5%. Go as low as you can go, though.
It also matters how long you charge it. Unplug your phone as soon as it hits 100%. You don’t have to keep checking it, but do check it after an hour to see how close it is and then again depending on how long more you think it will take to hit a full charge.
If you’ve already messed up your battery life, you can always get a battery replacement to start fresh. iResQ offers battery replacement for most smartphones on the market today. Check out our smartphone repair page for more information.
We know it’s obvious and not something you really want to do, but it really does make your smartphone last longer. Dropping your phone is bound to happen, and the damage doesn’t only make your phone look bad, but it could break it.
If you’ve already dropped your phone and it’s broken, you don’t have to buy a new one. You can have us fix it for you. We repair screens and can fix whatever may be wrong with it, such as a broken camera, microphone, or Wi-Fi.
Some people never update their phone because they hate the changes that come along with it, but the problem is that those updates are released because of changes that happen with the network and the way the phone works. Update your phone as often as it needs to be, so you don’t end up hating the fact that it’s slow, apps freeze, shut down, etc.
What we mean by cleaning it out is deleting apps you no longer use and taking the hundreds of pictures that you have saved on it. This will improve how fast it operates and it will allow you to use it freely without becoming aggravated when you can’t record a video or install a new app because of limited space.
We have many other tips for making your smartphone last longer. Be sure to check back often to learn more about how you can keep your phone running efficiently and looking as good as new.

At iResQ, we see many smartphone problems, but the Samsung Galaxy S4 comes in first place for connectivity issues. Many of our customers report the Internet connection on the Samsung Galaxy S4 is unstable. It will work one minute, and the next, it won’t connect. This is mostly when it is connected to a hotspot at home or work. It will stop deriving its data usage from a router and go to the network, which if you have limited data, can be a financial nightmare when the bill comes in.
The good news is that most connectivity problems can be corrected without a Samsung Galaxy S4 repair order. The following are some of the easiest fixes.
At times, the phone needs a refresher to understand which network to connect to. You can do this by going to your Home screen and tapping on the Menu icon. From the Menu, choose Settings, and then tap on Wi-Fi. Hold down your finger on your network for a long press and then press Forget Network. Now, go back and tap on Menu again. Check to see if the Passpoint is Off and the Auto Network is Off.
This should help you out. If it doesn’t, the problem may be the server or router. You can check on that by looking to see the frequency the router is on. If you have land lines and microwaves in your home, it’s best to set it to 5 Ghz for a clear broadcast. If you’re often far from your router when you use your phone though, switch it to 2.5 Ghz.
It might be helpful to turn off the mobile data connection if the signal is unreliable. Sometimes, this feature cuts in a little too often and that could lead you to feeling as though it is having an unreliable connection. Go to Wi-Fi, Menu and then Advanced to find this option.
If you haven’t already, turn your phone off and then on again. For some people, this only corrects the problem temporary, while for others it fixes it permanently.
If all else fails, it’s better to send it in to the experts at iResQ. Our certified technicians have worked on thousands of Samsung Galaxy S4 repairs, so they know what to look for internally to find what could be the problem with the Wi-Fi signal. At times, can be a simple part replacement, and other times it’s just a setting that is causing the problem.
Since we can’t diagnose your smartphone’s problem without seeing it, we offer free diagnostics for the Samsung Galaxy S4. Simply go to this repair option, and add it to your cart at no cost. All you will have to do is send it in, and we’ll take care of the rest.

We hope this was able to resolve all of your connectivity issues or that we will have the pleasure to provide you with a Samsung Galaxy S4 repair.
