Years back, I was not really a big fan of mobile phones with inbuilt batteries until I got my first android phone with one (HTC M7) way back in 2014. I used it for up to six months and I must say that devices with non-removable batteries can scare the hell out of you sometimes.
Now Here Are Some things you should know if you are using a Device With a non-removable battery or you’re planning to buy one..
1. What To Do When Your Device Freezes (Starts Hanging)
In a other phones when this happens you can simply remove your battery and put it back, everything will be OK after that. Unfortunately for those of us using phones with non-removable batteries it’s like a bad dream.
There are 2 types of Freezing
A. Hard Freeze – This is when your device, Freezes for over 10 minutes without responding.
Solution : Simply soft reboot the phone by holding the volume +, volume down and power button at the same time for about 30 seconds. Your device should reboot and unfreeze.
B. Soft Freeze – This is just a temporarily freeze
Solution Just drop the phone for some minutes it should unfreeze after some minutes. When it unfreezes quickly clear all the apps you’ve been running and reboot the phone.
2. How To Handle Overheating
Since you can’t remove the battery and allow the phone to cool. The best solution is to place your phone on a cold surface (please not inside a freezer or refrigerator). You may place it on a cold sachet of water.
After some minutes your phone should be cool as ice..
3. Your Phone Is Charging Slowly.
I made a post previously on that on my blog
so I won’t bore you with more of the details on that. There are 10 possible reasons
4. What To Do When Phone refuses to turn on
This can be really scary but it can be handled. Hold the power button for about a minute or 2 if your phone is still working you it’ll come on. If it doesn’t well try charging it
5. Never Let Your Phone Fall Into Water
Unlike Phones with removable batteries.. There’s no guarantee your device will be OK after falling into water unless you’re using the Galaxy S9.. Or any water resistant smartphone.
