Beware battery-saving myths.当心那些关于节省电能的错误说法:1. Closing unused apps.1. 关闭不常使用的应用程序There is plenty of inaccurate conventional wisdom about methods to prolong battery life. Let’s start with one of the worst “tips”: Closing (or force-quitting, as it’s commonly called) apps you are not currently using. The theory is that apps running in the background are using your phone’s components, so quitting them will save energy.关于延长电池使用时间,有很多不准确的传统观点。就从最糟的这条“小贴士”开始吧:关闭(或者所谓“强制退出”)你不经常使用的应用。这个贴士的理由是,在后台运行的应用使用了手机的元件,所以关闭它们可以省电。 /201603/429171
