Even though cell phones have dramatically changed since the 90s, loads of myths surrounding them are still the same! The more megapixels the phone’s camera has, the better images you get; the dimmer the screen is, the better it’s for your eyes; overnight charging harms the battery.
Some people even believe that a phone can cook an egg. This myth became popular after a viral Internet article – lots of people believed that radio waves a cell phone emits were so powerful that you could boil an egg by placing it between two devices. In short, smartphone myths are numerous and persistent. So let’s pop some of these dubious bubbles, shall we?

– Why cell phones are banned at gas stations is probably because they can and do distract drivers from the task at hand.
– If a decade ago overcharging could indeed damage the battery, you don’t need to worry about such an outcome these days.
– Rice doesn’t soak up just any liquid that happens to be nearby. To absorb water, rice grains have to be in direct contact with it.
– The amount of radiation a cell phone emits is so small that you would need 7,000 smartphones to boil an egg – and even this number is very approximate since nobody has checked it yet.
– Your gadget does have a magnetic field, but it’s so weak that it won’t affect your bank cards in any way.
– Some experts recommend draining your phone’s battery completely only if your device quits working at 20% charge. Then emptying the battery might help you recalibrate its level sensor.
– Most people are sure that the number of megapixels is the best indicator of how good your pictures are gonna be. What they don’t know is that not the number of megapixels but their quality plays the main role here.
– Since the 4G connection is faster, most people believe that it uses more data. But whatever connection you use, 5 MB of data is still 5 MB of data.
– If your screen brightness is higher than 50%, though, you should keep it down a bit. An over-bright screen can cause lots of short-term eye issues, from irritation to dry eyes and strain.
– The EM radiation frequency your smartphone emits is completely safe for you.
– There have been several cases when devices started burning, but it happened because of low-quality batteries, suspicious second-hand chargers, and dubious charging methods.
– The battery life mostly depends on how much power your device consumes.
– By closing background applications, you waste more battery because your phone has to spend more resources on opening an app than on re-launching it.
– The private mode does prevent your browser from storing your cookies, passwords, and other information. But it doesn’t equal an encrypted connection, and other people, for example, Internet service providers, can see your browsing history.
