The choice of phone you use may be indicative of your personality more than you think. Scientists recently found that Android users are much more humble, kinder and honest than their rivals – iPhone users.
In the study, people in two groups (iPhone users and Android users) completed a questionnaire. Each question related to their personality. iPhone users most often chose responses that weren’t as kind, humble and honest as Android users did.
In addition to the personality questionnaire, the research team analyzed the apps each user downloaded and used. There was a clear discrepancy between what iPhone users downloaded and what Android users did.
What’s interesting is that you would think more women who fall under the humble, kind, and honest category, but actually, they were more likely to own an Apple. Men are more like to have Android phones, and well, they fell into the group with people who are more humble, kind and honest.
In addition to these personality traits, it seems as though iPhone users are more extroverted as well. I guess that does make sense, since iPhone users do tend to talk a big game about their choice in smartphone.
It’s obvious our phones are a big part of us, and we’re going to make decisions based on our likes and dislikes with each type of phone. What do you believe is true of your smartphone as it relates to your personality? It is something interesting to consider, isn’t it?

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.

We tend to be skeptical of reports such as these because it really does have to do with the level of skill a technician has when repairing smartphones/iPhones.
Some of the reasons that the repairability score is so low for the Samsung Galaxy S7 are as follows:
Since the back panel is secured with tough adhesive and is glued, it can make removing the battery from the Samsung Galaxy S7 more difficult. It’s not impossible, though.
The display has to be removed to get to the USB port. It’s going to take very skillful fingers to get that off without breaking it, but it can be done.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is said to be more like to crack. It’s highly unlikely Samsung would have done this, since their previous models weren’t as vulnerable.
As we see from these reasons, the Samsung Galaxy S7 shouldn’t be as difficult as other repair places are making it out to be. Our technicians are already working on how to repair the new smartphone to keep it as affordable as possible. In just a bit of time, we are confident we will have the knowledge and skill to repair all of the parts of the Samsung Galaxy S7 as we have done with all other smartphones, tablets, iPhones, iPads, etc.

This of course prompted a discussion with some other of the adults around me. One mother had a battery pack, while another one swore that getting her phone battery replaced was the best choice. That led me to write this blog post.
The mother with the battery pack told me the one she had was her second one she’s bought. The first one was a cheap one she bought online that didn’t hold a charge, so it wouldn’t charge her phone enough to make a difference. The second one that she had with her was better. She said that she charges it fully, and then plugs her phone to it when she needs to charge it. She’s found that the battery pack can charge her phone about four times.
The problem with the battery pack was that it was bulky. It was fine when she was just browsing Facebook, texting, or surfing the Internet. However, if she needed to talk to someone on it, she had to unplug it. If she didn’t, the battery pack would swing and hit her in the face.
She said it’s not ideal because there have been plenty of times she has forgotten the battery pack, so her phone dies. She has to charge it, too. If she doesn’t, it’s no use to her.
After speaking to her, I turned to someone else who seemed to be unbothered by her phone. She said she had a battery replacement when she found her battery wouldn’t last as long as it used to. She said it was the best decision she has ever made. She never has to worry about her battery dying, and she even said she thinks it has better battery life than when she first bought the phone. By the end of the day, when my phone was dead, hers still had 50% left.
I’m sold on the battery replacement versus battery pack, especially when I heard how much the battery pack cost. Yikes! It was as much as it would be to buy a new phone from my provider with a two year contract.
If you’re struggling with battery issues with your smartphone, consider getting a battery replacement. Sure, it may seem like the battery pack is a better choice, but who wants to deal with the extra equipment? It’s just easier to deal with an installed battery that will last.
