Samsung guide for cleaning your mobile against the Virus and Germs

Cleaning your mobile frequently is something you should be doing already before the virus and germs became the main protagonist. However, the arrival of various types of virus has further focused on the importance of cleaning your mobile and how you can disinfect it.

One of the technology companies that has given this issue the most relevance has been Samsung, which offered to clean your mobile for the #coronavirus for free. After this offer, the South Korean company has produced a comprehensive guide explaining how to disinfect the phone step by step to protect yourself against the #coronavirus.

The Samsung guide to cleaning your mobile properly

That mobile phones were nests of bacteria is something we already talked about when we explained how to clean the screen of your smartphone , being able to be home to up to 600 different types of bacteria . That is the level of dirt on the terminal that you are in contact with for most of the day, the one that you touch with hands that you can then bring to your mouth or eyes without being aware of what that entails.

As if this were not enough, a few days ago we learned how long the coronavirus can survive on the screen of your mobile, mouse, keyboard or game console . Depending on the material, the virus can be up to 5 days in these technological devices .

Dirty mobile

Knowing this data, it is even more important to pay attention to the cleaning guide published by Samsung . According to the South Korean company, the following are the steps you must follow to disinfect your mobile in the correct way .

  • Turn off the mobile, remove the case and disconnect any accessories you have connected.
  • Clean the outer surface of the terminal with a soft, lint-free cloth or wipe. Samsung claims to be against the direct application of cleaning fluids, water or other solutions, as they could enter the holes of the phone and damage it.
  • Wet the tip of the cloth with distilled water or disinfectant to carry out its disinfection. The firm recommends that you use a product based on hypochlorous acid (50-80 ppm) or alcohol-based (formulated with more than 70% ethanol or isopropyl alcohol). With that wet end, clean the front and back of the terminal without too much pressure . If you use casings on your mobile, you should also clean them in this way.

These are the three key steps detailed by Samsung for phone disinfection. As the company clarifies, the guide is focused on cleaning glass, ceramic and metal surfaces, not for those soft accessories with materials such as plastic, rubber or leather.

How to clean and disinfect your mobile

In addition, Samsung recommends that you not use other cleaning solutions, such as using compressed air directly against the phone. After having disinfected the mobile phone, something you should do at least once a day, you should pay special attention when using it outside the home : keep it close, do not pass it from hand to hand and do not leave it on any surface.

As Samsung specifies in its guide, it is a temporary nuisance that can protect your health like that of your loved ones at these times when coronavirus is present in most countries on the planet.

Meanwhile, Samsung will also launch the Samsung Galaxy S20 , Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and Samsung Galaxy Buds + series in its “Unpacked” event. While the Galaxy S20 series will be the successor to last year’s Galaxy S10 line, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip will be the second generation foldable mobile phone of the Korean giant.

It will have a shell shape like the folding Moto Razr 2019. As for the Galaxy Buds +, they will be the company’s next-generation wireless headphones and the successor of last year’s Galaxy Wireless wireless headphones.

A field, however, where the house has not yet released its own device, is that of augmented reality, to which the company is currently working to release a new product, thus joining Apple and Facebook, also working at something similar.

Samsung and the mysterious augmented reality viewer

What should be a new Samsung AR device has recently been leaked into a patent . This shows the design of a new AR viewer that the house would be dedicating its work to. The patent, which had been requested in February, was actually published only a few days ago .

mysterious augmented reality viewer

According to the drawings shown by the latter, Samsung’s new augmented reality set has a structure made of metal and synthetic resin . There is a cable connected to the right side of the device that could be used for the connection for another device for data exchange or recharging, of which the house however, does not specify its usefulness.

The lenses are made of glass. The headphones also appear to have two front-facing cameras and two projectors for each eye.

However, the Samsung patent stops here.

Smart TV Operating System Guide

In order to get the most out of the Smart TV, a worthy operating system is required. We discover together the operating systems of the Smart TVs of the various manufacturers.

Those who do not buy a new TV are now aware that in addition to the simple viewing of digital terrestrial channels, it is possible to take advantage of apps. Like a PC, web browser or smartphone on modern smart TVs we can install various applications (like Netflix and YouTube), it’s usually enough to connect the smart TV to the Internet (more often via WiFi, but also via Ethernet).

But even on smart TVs, we need to be careful about which manufacturer we rely on: in some cases smart operating systems offer very few apps , often not up-to-date, or rely solely on the browser to offer Web content in a very limited way. Let’s look at the best Smart TV platforms on the market.

Smart TV operating systems

Android smartphone owners can use the phone to control the TV directly using voice controls

If you are pointing to a brand new smart TV you can take advantage of the Android TV platform, which resumes the features of the most popular smartphone operating system and the TV port. Android smartphone owners can use the phone to control the TV directly using voice controls; Google Cast support allows you to send any video content from apps to TV (like a Chromecast TV will be “viewed” by the Cast symbol). The Android TV platform is growing and is in the current state of the art without any doubt the best platform to take advantage of Smart TV capabilities, taking the lead in Smart TV operating systems.

Sharp and Philips: Android TV or OS owner

Sharp and Philips also have a proprietary operating system that even though Smart features are not up to the platform offered by Android TV

Sharp and Philips also use Android TV on some models of televisions, but in this case the range is less wide than that seen on Sony. Blocked all the benefits already seen on Sony, but in this case you have to be more careful: Sharp and Philips also have a proprietary operating system that even though Smart features are not up to the platform offered by Android TV.

Panasonic: Firefox OS

Sharp and Philips also use Android TV on some models of televisions, but in this case the range is less wide than that seen on Sony

Panasonic has believed in Firefox OS right from the start and the platform is among the best TV views: fast, with many app / webapps and Firefox embedded in the platform. You can now buy Panasonic TV with Firefox OS.

Samsung: Smart Hub and Tizen OS

Samsung offers two Smart TV operating systems, both valid and well-supported
Samsung offers two Smart TV operating systems, both valid and well-supported. Smart Hub is the historic Samsung platform, which is well supported by smartphones from the same manufacturer or other Samsung products (Decoders, Blu-Ray Players etc.). Tizen OS is the open source operating system developed by Samsung that offers more expandable style, Android TV.

Few TVs currently offer Tizen OS, but in the case of Samsung the difference between the two platforms at the moment is minimal, perhaps further on Samsung will only target Tizen OS.

LG: WebOS

WebOS is perhaps the most beautiful operating system graphically and with the largest number of applications

WebOS is perhaps the most beautiful operating system graphically and with the largest number of applications. WebOS has a taskbar that opens from the bottom of the screen to choose which app to launch or which feature to open. The speed of this system is the strong point: you can switch from Netflix TV channels in less than 2 seconds. Make sure you buy upgraded WebOS (2.0 or 3.0) versions of your TV so you always have the most up-to-date apps for the most commonly used services (Netflix, YouTube, Google Play Movies etc.).

Best Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is one of the most spectacular smartphone under the point of view of the screen. First of all, it has one of the larger displays that can be found throughout the market, with as many as 6.2 inches diagonally. At the same time, however, it has the very reduced size compared to any other device with the same size of the display, which makes it super revolutionary. The problem is that though this curved screen, covering practically the whole front part of the device, it is highly subject to damage of any kind and size.

Display Protection Crystal Clear Invisible Samsung Galaxy

It ‘s true, the glass on the screen of this device is covered by protective Gorilla Glass 5 of Corning, but this does not mean that it is indestructible. Just a well-aimed crash, a fall or the like so that it can result in damage that could be very serious. The damage is less severe for sure a scratch or a crack on the glass that at most may minimally affect the viewing experience. But there are much more severe and debilitating that perhaps you are not even aware of. Think, for example, if you go to break the crystals of this panel: you may get a whole screen or a portion of the screen that does not display the images.

Or, you could also break the touch screen , and in this case you could not interact with the smartphone. Now with the touch screen gets pretty much everything, the physical buttons are minimized and you can not even navigate the user interface with them. Adjusting a display is often a real tragedy, because in service centers you can also ask for hundreds of Euros for replacement or just to buy the new glass. Imagine then if we are talking about Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. And remember, warranty does not cover physical damage, but only internal damage and defects.

WARNING: the films themselves are not able to completely protect the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus! The device absolutely necessary also a cover! Discover now the best through the following article: Cover for Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus for Best protection.

Samsung already displayed its new version of Chromebook laptop

The Chromebook being major players in late 2013 and, it seems, will be among the star laptops in the year that is about to begin. All companies are positioning in this segment as sales of these teams are growing and this is an example of Samsung, which could present its new model during the CES held in Las Vegas.

And what has been learned will be enough news to be included in this laptop with Google operating system, and most of them with regard to hardware component protagonists are manufactured by the Korean company itself. An example would be the processor (or better called SoC, as this will be an element that is often used in mobile handsets and has ARM architecture). Specifically we refer to a model Exynos 5420 Octa 5 operating at a frequency of 1.8 GHz in its four cores and Cortex-A15 1.3GHz Cortex-A7, we latter being used when performance does not have to the greatest. By the way, this component uses big.LITTLE technology for maximum energy efficiency. An interesting detail is that the GPU will be a Mali-T628, so it will be more than possible to handle the graphics in three dimensions with solvency.

Samsung already displayed at CES its new version of Chromebook laptop

Well, if this is already a novelty, it is noted that the display of the new Samsung Chromebook will be 12 inches (even speculation that it could be something more) and would reach its resolution 2560 x 1600. That is, very similar to that found in the Nexus 10 also manufactured by this company. The fact is that the image quality is quite high.

Regarding memory, I must say that, again, Samsung Chromebook tends to resemble a mobile terminal, as shown by the RAM is 3 GB, the same as for example includes Galaxy Note 3, and that the space storage will come in two versions: 16 or 32 GB. Yes, due to the USB connectivity including laptop using external devices is more than assured.

As mentioned, it is expected that this new model will let go during CES held in Las Vegas next week, so that we can leave little doubt as to whether these predictions are confirmed. The price seems to be around $ 250 , so it keeps the line be adjusted as usual with Chromebooks. Anyway, it would not be surprising that eventually this Samsung device is staged after said event, as some sources the Korean manufacturer have it indicated that the Las Vegas show no intention to show laptops.
