4 Things You Should Know If You Are Using A Phone With A Built-in Battery by NaijaTechGuy(m): 3:54am On May 25, 2018
I wasn't really a big fan of phones with non-removable batteries until I got a phone with one (the OBI SF1) way back in 2016. I got the phone as a review unit. I used it for up to six months and I must say that devices with non-removable batteries can scare the hell out of you sometimes.

Now Here Are Some things you should know if you are using a Device With a non-removable battery or you're planning to buy one..

1. What To Do When Your Device Freezes (Starts Hanging)

In a other phones when this happens you can simply remove your battery and put it back, everything will be OK after that. Unfortunately for those of us using phones with non-removable batteries it's like a bad dream.

There are 2 types of Freezing

A. Hard Freeze - This is when your device, Freezes for over 10 minutes without responding.

Solution : Simply soft reboot the phone by holding the volume +, volume down and power button at the same time for about 30 seconds. Your device should reboot and unfreeze.

B. Soft Freeze - This is just a temporarily freeze

Solution Just drop the phone for some minutes it should unfreeze after some minutes. When it unfreezes quickly clear all the apps you've been running and reboot the phone.

2. How To Handle Overheating

Since you can't remove the battery and allow the phone to cool. The best solution is to place your phone on a cold surface (please not inside a freezer or refrigerator). You may place it on a cold sachet of water.
After some minutes your phone should be cool as ice..

3. What To Do When Phone refuses to turn on

This can be really scary but it can be handled. Hold the power button for about a minute or 2 if your phone is still working you it'll come on. If it doesn't well try charging it


4. Never Let Your Phone Fall Into Water

Unlike Phones with removable batteries.. There's no guarantee your device will be OK after falling into water unless you're using the Galaxy S9.. Or any water resistant smartphone.

I saw that during my stay in the Northern part of Nigeria. I thought phones were overheated because of their hot weather..

The best solution to correct overheating is simply change your network to 2G and not place your phone on a cold sachet of water...

Only holding power button for long enough can restart a phone.

I hear people say it's not easy to remove non removable battery. The day my phone fell into water the phone was fully charged 100percent, the phone refused to boot it will show tecno logo and off continued doing this, I left the phone for like 7hours the phone refused to come up. I was in a remote area so I couldn't take the phone to a repair shop. Nobody told me to look for nails I unscrewed the phone removed the battery left it to dry and the phone came up

Number 1 once saved my tablet's life. I got that solution from a google search after trying everything possible to unfreeze or shut down the tablet.

The Golden Rule never allow your phone battery to run down completely, that's up to zero percent .
Its sometimes very difficult to reboot the battery.

Lol. When my phone has a fever, I don't place it on a sachet of water. I turn off the data for a while, or put it on flight-mode, until the temperature comes down.
