- Network Issue
While more than likely your phone is not at fault for networking issues or poor cell signal, it’s worth including this common problem in this list. For the most part, changing settings on your phone isn’t going to solve your connectivity dilemma. However, there are times when it is your hardware that is causing the problem, and, in those cases, there are a few steps you can take, but it may require seeking outside help.
Before you do anything else, make sure that you’re not just experiencing normal, unavoidable network problems like a dead spot where no one can get signal. If other devices are having trouble connecting, it’s probably your network as a whole and not your phone that you need to address. In this case, try calling your carrier or Internet service provider for some assistance.
If your phone truly is the culprit, try restarting it first. Then, make sure you have the latest version of your operating system installed. At that point, if you still have difficulty connecting, you may need to do some web searching or call your phone manufacturer to help out.
- Phone or Apps Keep crashing
These highly frustrating problems could be caused by having too many apps running simultaneously, not having enough memory, or by having bugs in your apps. If your apps keep crashing, you should try clearing the app data from ‘App Manager’ or ‘App Info’ (the name will vary a bit depending on what smartphone you’re using). Like with many of the fixes above, you should also make sure that you close all apps you don’t currently need, as well as clearing your cache. Phone crashes, on the other hand, are a little more serious. One thing that you can try is removing your phone’s case and external battery and allowing it to rest for a while, before putting it all back together. You could also try downloading a troubleshooting app, which may help you pinpoint the source of your woes. As a last resort, you could also give your phone a factory reset, but make sure you backup all of your important files beforehand.
- MicroSD Card Issue
Usually there are two types of issue associated with MicroSD card.
You should be careful before buying MicroSD cards. There are different types of MicroSD cards available in the market and every card is not designed to fit your smartphones.
It is important to know exactly what type of microSD is suited for your smartphone so you can buy the correct one. If you choose the wrong card, there is not much you can do about it but to politely ask to exchange or refund.
The two common types of microSD cards for smartphones are SDHC and SDXC. In addition to the format of the microSD card, you need to identify the speed classes for each. There are three classes to choose from for most smartphones: 1) Class 10, 2) UHS-1 Class 1, and 3) UHS-1 Class 3. It is important to take note of these factors when shopping for microSD cards to ensure that whatever you buy is compatible with your smartphone. The best way to find the right match is to bring your phone when you buy a microSD card.
After a long term use MicroSD cards tend to get corrupted. In that case, just remove the card from phone, connect it with PC via card reader and format it twice.
