Android was made for digital cameras not for smartphones…

Now, this is something you probably weren’t aware of Android was originally designed for digital cameras, not for smartphones. The concept was to create smart cameras which can store photos online in the cloud.

“The exact same platform, the exact same operating system we built for cameras, that became Android for cellphones,” said Rubin (Former Android chief). He made a prototype in 2004 which focuses on wired and wireless cameras linked to an “Android Data-center,” .

Then  Google stepped in and made Android what it is today. Rubin said his team eventually decided digital cameras simply weren’t a big enough market. Interestingly enough, Rubin noted he was worried about Microsoft and about Symbian at the time. Apple wasn’t even on the radar yet as their first iPhone didn’t launch until 2007.
The team wanted as many cellphones to use Android as possible. So instead of charging something for the OS they gave it away for free.

The goal set by the team was to capture nine percent market share in North America and Europe by 2010, but the end result was quite amazing , Android held a 72 percent share last year with more than 750 million Android devices online globally as of last month.

The approach worked for the Google and the android became a runaway success. However the earlier dream of cameras with android was also fulfilled by company like Nokia and Samsung as they have released Android-powered digital cameras in recently.

Fed up with your battery-Check this or you will kill it.

Battery life is one of the biggest issues on the Smartphones today.A lot of phones and tablets claim their’s is best,but no use.There’s no phone which can back you up for more than a day.

Its not that cool that we always switch off our NETWORKS and Wifi.They are pretty kicky overall its a smartphone.Without a network and internet its a dumbass.

Here are some tips to improve your battery backup,really interesting.

Turn the phone off or switch it to Airplane Mode: This will probably be the most effective and simple way of conserving your battery’s power.

-Quit searching for Networks: When you are in an area where the network signal is poor or doesn’t exist,your phone will constantly search for the better network coverage and might drain all its power.So better Stop searching for the network at this instance.One option is switch the phone to flight mode or switch it to manual search.If you don’t have a perfect signal, get a cell phone repeater which will amplify the signal to provide near perfect reception anywhere.

-Full Discharge and Full Charge technique: Don’t put your phone on charging when there is the battery remaining it for another few hours unless it’s very important. Charge it when your battery is about to get totally discharged and when you put it for charging, let it get charged totally. OR Do the opposite.

-Switch off the vibrator of the phone just use the ringtone: The vibrate uses the power more frequently and enormously,so switch it off.

-Turn off or low the Phone’s Backlight:A lot of energy is consumed in the backlight ,though it eases to read ubder the sun and brightlight.But if the phone’s battery is killing you might save some by lowering the backlight.Some phones have an ambient light sensor, which can turn off the back light in bright conditions and enable it in darker ones.

-Avoid using unnecessary features. If you know it will be a while before your phone’s next charge, don’t use the camera or connect to the Internet. Flash photography can drain your battery especially quickly.

-Turn off the Bluetooth,infrared,Wifi and GPS if your phone is blessed with these features.

-Use GSM rather than 3G – Using your phone in 3G / Dual Mode will drain the battery quicker than if you just use GSM mode.

-Use a black background whenever possible. AMOLED screens use a lot less power displaying black instead of white .

-Avoid fully discharging a lithium-ion battery! Unlike Ni-Cd batteries, lithium-ion batteries’ life is shortened every time you fully discharge them. Instead, charge them when the battery meter shows one bar left. Lithium-ion batteries, like most rechargeable batteries, have a set number of charges in them.

-Keep the battery cool. Put the battery in the fridge. Your battery will last longest if used near room temperature, and nothing wears on a battery like extended exposure to high temperatures. While you can’t control the weather, you can avoid leaving your phone in a hot car or in direct sunlight, and you don’t have to carry your phone in your pocket, where your body heat will raise its temperature. In addition, check the battery while it’s charging. If it seems excessively hot, your charger may be malfunctioning.

Some More Tips to Follow:

  • You should not have to turn off your phone to charge it. Most battery chargers deliver more than enough current to power your phone and charge it at the same time. Doing so will not lengthen the charge time, and leaving a phone on allows the user to be aware of its fuel gauge, so that you can remove it when the battery is full.
  • When using a car charger, do not charge the battery when the inside temperature of your car is hot. Wait until the car has cooled before you plug in the phone.
  • Check to see if your phone has a “Battery Save” option. If so, you can turn this on to increase the life of your battery.
  • If your phone is connected to your email, make sure it’s not set to check your email every 15 minutes or half an hour. This means that every time it checks, you lose a little battery. Set it to where it doesn’t check automatically, and you’ll save a lot of battery this way.
  • mAh is an abbreviation for milli-ampere hours which are units of electrical charge. Larger values, for batteries of the same battery voltage, indicate that the battery has a larger capacity and will power your phone for a longer period of time before charging.
  • Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries naturally get quite warm while charging, unless you use a specialized “slow charger”. If your phone uses a NiMH battery, do not worry about the heat generated during charging unless it becomes so hot that it is uncomfortable to touch.
  • Regardless of how well you care for your battery, it will die eventually. When it does, you may be able to have it refurbished by sending it to the manufacturer or bringing it back to the retailer. If it cannot be refurbished, or if you just want to get a new battery, be sure to  recycle it, either by returning it to the manufacturer or retailer, or by bringing it to a recycling center. Most major retail electronics stores have drop-off boxes for recycled phones.
  • There are numerous battery retailers and discounters that will answer questions you have regarding prolonging the life of your cell phone battery.
  • When you are about to restart the phone for any network malfunction, first try to switch the flight mode ON and OFF, instead of restarting the phone, as restarting the phone takes more battery.
  • Turn power saver on and charge the phone while it is on. Also be sure to not charge the phone too much; it may reduce the life of the battery, requiring you to buy a whole new battery.
  • While charging your phone, keep it on any non-heat absorbent material such as wooden table, plastic shelf, book, metallic table most effective ( as it is conductor of heat, it takes away minor heat generated by battery).
