How long does a phone battery usually last?Typically, a phone battery should last you 2 to 3 years. If you misuse your battery, it can last only 1 year, which is not a very long time at all. Here are some tips on how to make sure your battery lasts longer:
- You may think it is a good idea to charge your smartphone even when it reaches 50% so that it stays at 100% all day. In fact it is actually better to let your iPhone/Samsung battery run very low before recharging it fully. This may help the battery lasts longer by at least 1 year if not more.
- Do not let your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy phone fully discharge often as this really drains your battery life as well.
- When you are near the mountains or in an area with no cell reception, your smartphone is searching for the closest cell tower and sending receiving signals. This happens over and over again and is not good for your smartphone battery. Try leaving your phone on airplane mode and keep your battery strong.
If all fails and your phone battery dies forever, there are other options. You can buy a pre-owned phone in good condition from any phone store such as “Simple Phone Solutions”. Another option you have is going to the phone store and getting a battery repair. Simple Phone Solutions provides battery repair for the iPhone 5, iPhone 6, iPhone 7, and iPhone 8. They also provide Galaxy battery repair for the Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S7, and Galaxy S8. Please feel free to inquire for more information.
