Are Samsung Galaxy Devices Waterproof?

Are Samsung Galaxy Devices Waterproof?

When you are looking for the next device that you want to invest in, you are likely trying to figure out what sorts of features that you want to get. That being said, if you are someone that travels a lot and you take your device pretty much everywhere, then you are likely trying to find something that is a little more durable. Can you find Samsung Galaxy devices that are waterproof or water resistant? The good news is, some of the more advanced models have at least a little bit of water resistance as a part of what they have to offer.

When you buy the “budget” options for the Samsung Galaxy, which includes the Samsung Galaxy j5, you will find that they have nothing that helps it against liquid. There are a lot of different problems that may come along if you get any liquid damage or you may get water that may get stuck in certain areas. If this is a problem that comes up with any of your devices, make sure that you contact us using the information at https://www.telcoworld.com.au/mobile-phones/repairs/ so that we can take care of it for you.

However, there are some models, including the Samsung Galaxy S5, the S7, and the S7 Edge, that have something that is known as IP68 certification. What does this mean? Basically, that the phone is water resistant to a depth of 4.5 feet (1.5 meters) and it can stay at that depth for approximately 30 minutes with little to no damage sustained. While the models that offer this protection may cost a little bit more, it’s well worth it for those who may be working around liquids or that may go near water as recreation. The price difference could end up saving you money because you may not have to replace your device after an incident with liquid.

There are some alternatives that you can consider with this as well. For example, there are cases and other protective devices that you can get in order to make the device waterproof or more water resistant. While some of these options are definitely better than others, you will find that they are worth looking into and finding a solution that makes sense for what you may need.

If you are looking for a waterproof mobile device and you want to make sure that it has anything and everything that you could need when it comes to your needs, you can check out the selection that is at our website. We can help you to choose the best options for your particular wants and we can help you to see what could be helpful in the future. Our staff will help you to find whatever it is that you may need to get a waterproof device that makes sense for your budget and your lifestyle.

How Does the Samsung Wireless Charger Work?

How Does the Samsung Wireless Charger Work?

As technology has gotten more advanced, there are a lot of things that people really don’t understand like they used to. For example, you are likely quite used to plugging your mobile device in if the battery starts to drain. The plug in the wall makes it that much easier for you to get it working again and your battery will be ready to go the next time that you need to go out and do something.

That being said, did you know that there are now wireless chargers that you can use in order to charge your Samsung Galaxy and other wireless devices? How do these even work? Is there a way to make sure that you get everything that you need? Does it actually fill up your battery as effectively or efficiently as just plugging your phone into the wall? Yes, absolutely.

How does it work? Let’s take a look at the two main types of wireless charging that are currently available. They are referred to as Qi and PMA chargers.

Qi. Qi, which comes from the Chinese word meaning “energy from nature,” is the more common type of wireless charger that is available. This, in short, uses the power of electromagnetic charges in order to make sure that your phone is charging the way that it should be. The coils end up matching up with your device and then helping the battery to charge up the way that you want it to be able to.  There are two types of devices that use Qi – one is mobile, the other is a base station, and both of them work equally well when it comes to making sure that you can get just what you need when it comes to charging your device.

PMA. The Powers Matter Alliance, better known as the PMA, is another type of wireless charger, usually used by companies like Proctor and Gamble. These are used in a lot of companies that want to offer wireless charging options to their customers (think coffee shops). Why? Because it allows you to keep an eye on what is being used by the phone and prevent any issues from coming up at your business. So, the next time you see a wireless charger in a coffee shop or some other public area, it’s likely a PMA device that you are using.

The way that Samsung devices are being built now allows for you to use either of these types of wireless charger with no issues at all. You want to figure out which is going to be right for you and your needs and then go ahead and buy that one.

The wireless charger is just one of the products that we offer at https://www.telcoworld.com.au/plans. We continue to keep up with all of the latest trends in technology and make sure that we can bring them to you as well. And, if you are in need of repairs for those devices, we will be able to help you with that as well. Take the time to look at our plans today.

Avoiding Data Security Issues

Avoiding Data Security Issues

When you are using a mobile device on a regular basis, you want to be certain that you’re doing everything that you can to protect it. Many of us have an antivirus on our laptops or desktops, so why wouldn’t we try to protect our mobile devices as well? Many times, we forget what we’re doing in this regard and we may share things like credit card information and the like via these devices. What are we supposed to do in those situations? How can we prevent this all from becoming an even bigger problem as time goes on? Here are some tips to help you avoid data security problems.

Don’t ever forget to back up your information. If you are someone that has a lot of information floating around clouds and flash drives and your mobile device, you want to make sure that you have one place to back that information up on. You know that technology doesn’t always work the way that you want it to, and that can make it hard for you to find a file when everything has seemed to crash on you. So, instead of getting frustrated or losing your data, always have backups upon backups to keep it in order.

Put some sort of digital protection on your device. There are anti-viruses and the like for your mobile devices. These can prevent you from digital attacks and prevent viruses and malware from getting onto your device. Look for options that are not going to take up a lot of space on your phone and that have been approved by https://www.telcoworld.com.au/ so that you know that you’re getting something that is going to give you the best protection possible.

Work and play should stay separate. Because of the digital revolution, there have been so many instances where there are blurred lines between your work life and your home life. You need to be sure that you’re taking care of all of your work tasks on a work device (or in work folders on your device, if you use the same device for everything). You want to keep your personal life private and you don’t want to get into a situation where your job could be in jeopardy because you accidentally put information on social media that was supposed to be confidential.

Keep an eye on your physical device. The most important thing is that you need to keep your phone or tablet with you all of the time. Make sure that you know where it is and that you can get to it if someone were to try and nab it. Keeping your device(s) safe can help prevent issues related to stolen data.

Many of us aren’t completely used to carrying around devices yet, so we may not be 100% sure as to what we need to do. If you follow these tips, you may reduce the risk of a data breach on your smartphone.
