In this post we compile a series of ideas for reinvent the image of our terminal after a period of use and provide it with a new touch.

How many times have we considered buying another mobile or tablet, although the one we have works perfectly, simply by changing or searching new sensations?

External battery, remedy for low autonomy
Over time, the batteries of lithium ion They are losing capacities. There are ways to make that decline is less noticeable, and we must even bear in mind that the new and brand new generations of smartphones (except in exceptional cases) do not necessarily improve what was seen in previous years. From the terminals with Snapdragon 800Two years ago, we have not witnessed a sensitive evolution, perhaps quite the opposite.
