1. Leaving your phone plugged in destroys the battery
Modern li-ion batteries are smart enough to stop charging when full. So, you don’t need to worry about your phone’s battery even if it is left to charge overnight.
2. Don’t charge your phone unless the battery is fully drained
Batteries have limited charge cycles (each cycle – full charge to full discharge). Therefore, it’s rather beneficial if you charge your phone before is discharges fully as it will save a charge cycle.
3. More the megapixels a camera has, better is the image quality
Firstly, 4k display panel displays an image/frame of 8.3 megapixels, that’s the most you need. Secondly, image quality depends on image sensor and after processing.
4. Emptying recycle bins will permanently delete all files it contained
No, only the links of those files will get deleted. If a recovery tool is used, it can still be brought back if an other new file doesn’t replace it.
5. Higher display resolution is always better on a smartphone
The human eye can’t discern nitty-gritty detail when a display packs more than 300 pixels per inch. The Sony Xperia Z5 premium packs a 4k panel in a 5.5 inch screen, scoring 806 ppi pixel density. Furthermore, more is the resolution, lower is the battery and performance.
6. Private/Incognito browsing keeps you anonymous
It basically doesn’t keep the record of what websites you visit and doesn’t store cache. If you’re under the impression that the world can’t get to know who you’re, you’re wrong, and your ISP will keep track of all the websites you visit.
7. Holding a magnet close to your computer will erase all of its data
This isn’t technically wrong. You may remember how easy it was to wipe a floppy disk using a magnet. But you would need a really, really big magnet to wipe out your computer’s hard drive. Hard drives on modern computers would only be susceptible to really strong magnets with really focused magnetic fields. So your average magnet wouldn’t do the trick.
