One of the most effective ways to protect the life and battery longevity of your smartphone is to simply regularly power it down. Think of it this way: Would you leave your computer on for weeks or months at a time without ever turning it off? Many of us leave our phones on, charging or on standby for weeks at a time. This can take a toll on your phone’s speed and effectiveness. Think of your phone as a mini-computer and treat it the same way. Powering down at least once a week can have a big impact.
