Is a mobile hotspot free?

Yes, mobile hotspot is free because all devices which are connected to hotspot are using mobile data from the device which serves hotspot. But be careful if you have created a hotspot on your mobile phone check mobile data expenses from your mobile provider. Most often mobile providers already have included mobile data usage in a monthly payment so you can safely create a hotspot and serve internet to your friends. But in some cases, you can overspend mobile data usage so if you don’t know what data you already have in your monthly payment there is good practice to call your mobile provider and check.

 

Is hotspot and WiFi the same thing?

Is Lan better than WiFi?

LAN and Wifi are two separate things.  LAN is a local area network which includes all devices: (computers, mobile phones, printers etc) connected over Wifi or cable inside your local network.

Wifi is a type of connection for connecting your devices inside your local network devices.

As far as your question is which connection is better cable connection or wifi connection. 

Every connection has own benefits the cable connection is mostly more reliable than a Wifi connection. But when you are using WIFI connection you don’t need extra cables to use the Internet. But keep in mind for WIFI connection you will need extra devices such as WIFI router and if you are using PC you will probably need WIFI USB adapters (check in our article) so that your PC can connect to the internet. On another side, you will need cable for connecting your network device and router from your ISP. The Ethernet cable can cost you money so you must calculate what is cheaper for you using standard cable connection or Wifi.

Can a PC connect to WiFi?

Yes, PC can connect to WIFI. For connecting your PC with WIFI you will need a small device called: USB to wifi adapter.

Usually, those adapters cost from $8 to $80 you will find that adapter in your local computer store or you can order it in the internet shop.

When you will buy that adapter just plugin that adapter to your free USB port and if you have Windows 10 all drivers will be automatically installed on your PC. After inserting the WIFI adapter to your PC, you will see all WIFI networks in your area.

 

 

Do you need WiFi for Bluetooth speaker?

You don’t need Wifi for using your Bluetooth speaker except if you want to stream music from the internet then you will need to turn on Bluetooth connection on your mobile phone and your WIFI connection.

In markets, you will find different connection options for Bluetooth speakers some Bluetooth speakers can also use a WIFI connection. The best way is to read manuals if you have already buy Bluetooth speaker / WIFI speaker or before buy check inside your local store what are supported connections to your speaker.

 

 

Do you need an Internet connection to use Bluetooth?

No, you don’t need an internet connection for using Bluetooth. Bluetooth and internet connection are two separate things.

The Bluetooth connection is limited to your surroundings. You can transfer things with Bluetooth connection if you are in a radius of 10m of another device. While with an internet connection you can send the file to the other side of the world 🙂

Also for working with Bluetooth, you don’t need to turn WIFI  or mobile data on your mobile phone the data count for every connection is separated.

 

 

Why does my phone use battery when its off?

You have probably noticed if you turn your phone off and you leave your phone for a month without turning on the battery discharge a little bit.

Those are the reasons why this happens:

  • your mobile phone is off but your mobile phone is still monitoring buttons to check when you will press turn On button and turn the mobile phone back.
  • the battery has so-called self-discharge chemical reaction. The most used material for mobile phone batteries is Li-ion which has between 2%-3% self-discharge effect per month.
  • when your phone is off there are some back processes which are still running example: an internal clock for time, alarm ring if your phone has a function to alarm in turn off mode etc..

 

 

What is the difference between a smartphone and an iPhone?

There is no difference between the smartphone and the iPhone. iPhone is a smartphone and smartphone is an iPhone.

The word smartphone indicates all phones which are very smart devices (for making calls, texting, sending emails using navigation etc…).

So basically the smartphone is a word like cars.

You have different manufactures of cars: Honda, BMW etc….

And you have different manufactures for mobile phones: iPhone, Samsung, Huawei etc…

Example: smartphones of diffrent manufactures:

 

 

How long does it take for a phone to charge to 100?

For average phone, it takes about 2-3 hours that your mobile phone is charged to 100%.

But in some cases can take longer:

  • You already have a bad battery.
  • Your charger is a cheap charger, not a charger which is recommended by your mobile phone manufacturer.
  • The temperature, where you are charing your mobile phone, is very low

Keep in mind that batteries inside the mobile phone can be different. Depend on battery capacity (mAh) and your charger it can take the different time that your mobile phone will be charged to 100%. 

How you can check battery capacity on your mobile phone

Most mobile phones have integrated battery inside so you can’t open and see what battery is using your mobile phone.

One way to check what is your current battery capacity is to download AccuBattery from Google Play. Inside this app, you will find what is the battery capacity of your mobile phone.

Example: From google play download app Accubattery:  Google play 

Inside app check battery capacity.

Keep in mind that chargers can be different too. You can buy cheap chargers which will charge your battery at 1A but it can damage your battery and it will take forever that your mobile phone will be fully charged. So use only charges which are compatible with your mobile phone and original chargers which are recommended by your mobile phone manufacturer!

 

 

 

Is it bad to use your phone while charging?

You can use your mobile phone while charging. I have look inside the official manual of the mobile phone manufacturer and I didn’t find any warning that I can’t use a mobile phone while charging.

But be careful:

  • while charging your mobile phone is hot to touch.
  • use the only charger which is compatible with your mobile phone! Don’t use cheap chargers which can damage your mobile phone!
  • Watch out that you don’t pull the power cable out of the socket while using your mobile phone.
  • Forcing the charger out of the phone can damage the charger port so be careful when you are using your mobile phone while charging!
  • And keep in mind when driving and charging your mobile phone look on the road, not on your mobile phone!
  • Be careful not to spill any liquids on your mobile phone and your mobile phone charger when you are charing your mobile phone. This can damage your phone and you may be shaken by electricity!
