You Need to Charge your Phone for 8hours Before First Use, See Reason

You Need to Charge your Phone for 8hours Before First Use, See Reason

You all might have experienced a common thing while buying a new smartphone. Smartphone vendors always advise us to charge the device for at least 24 hours before using it for the first time. Several time vendors say that you should fully charge your smartphone before using it for the first time.


This issue is quite controversial because there is not enough information about it and this is what turns this situation into a question: Myth or Reality? Well, the battery of our smartphone needs to be charged 8, 12 or 24 before using it for the first time. Why?

The battery of our smartphone used to have a kind of memory, the limit of this represents the limit of the battery. The first load is extremely important because it sets the battery limit. Early battery types like nickel cadmium had a ‘memory effect’ in which batteries maintain a certain capacity based on how they had been charged and discharged.

But, with modern lithium-ion batteries, most people believe that there is no such effect and the batteries are even more reliable. With Lithium-ion batteries, you don’t need to calibrate your smartphone by running the battery all the way down

Mobile sellers still recommend users to recharge their phone for 6-8 hours but that’s no longer needed. They simply want you to start with a full charge to get the best experience.

So, charging a smartphone for 6-8 hours before its first use turns out to be a completely false issue due to the advancement of technology.

Whatsapp Set to Add Video And Voice Calling Features To WhatsApp Web/Desktop

If you use WhatsApp Web often and you miss video calls, you’re in luck: everything points to the company being able to implement both functions very soon. This is suggested by WABetaInfo, the portal specialized in anticipating the news of the instant messaging app, where they explain that the platform is currently working on it, so that voice and video calls could be available soon.

According to rumours, all this begins with the version of WhatsApp for iPad, which although not yet available, WABetaInfo points out that it will soon reach the market. The company of the Mark Zuckerberg wants the application version for the Apple tablet integrates voice calls. As this app is based on WhatsApp Web, it is safer than the function also to the browser version.



In addition to this, the analysis of the WhatsApp update code 0.2.8299 has hidden references that may suggest that there will also be support for video calls on WhatsApp Web. However, these references are very slight and are not too clear, so in this case, we will still have to wait to know if we can enjoy this functionality in WhatsApp for the computer. This also applies to the WhatsApp app for iPad.

Users of WhatsApp Web have long claimed these functions for the version of the application for the browser. And, although the platform has been improving, including in the latest update the private group chats and the Picture mode, the two main characteristics are still missing: voice calls and video calls.

At the moment there is no official confirmation from the company owned by Facebook, so we will have to wait with crossed fingers to make these forecasts come true.

So, what do you think about this? Simply share all your thoughts and opinions in the comment section below.
