5G Energy Levels

As it says in the article from ZDNET:
For conspiracy theorists, looks like it's time to head back to chemtrail forums and hating on fluoride, because 5G is no better or worse than the other frequencies used, according to tests from Telstra.
This seems to be in line with information available including the last blog post “

5G: Upgrade or Uncertainty?

5G is the next generation of mobile communications that offers higher speeds then have been achievable in the past.With the ever increasing transmission of data, this has become important.
There has been a great deal of discussion about whether 5G is dangerous or not. I am not an expert on the subject but I trust the article from Skeptoid to be factual and reasonable.
The conclusion from the linked article is that it is not dangerous.

How to Enter Passcode on a Broken iPhone Screen

If you have an iPhone with a broken screen it can sometimes be very difficult to get into the phone. I came across an issue where the screen was too badly damaged to be able to see the prompts, the phone was not connected to a network and it did not have a SIM as the owner had already purchased a new phone. However, the user wanted some information from the phone as it had not been backed up to a computer for a long time and iCloud back-ups had not been used.

The message from this is that always make sure you have a recent backup and that iCloud syncing is enabled for everything you need on the phone. I realise that storage beyond the 5 GB costs money but it is well worth it, especially if you have an issue such as this. This will eliminate the story you hear every now and then where someone says they lost all their contacts, appointments, messages etc.

The article covers some areas but may not work for everyone (it didn't for me and in my case suggesting to the user to get a screen replacement was probably the only real option).

Does leaving the smartphone always plugged in damage the battery?

A question that is often asked concerns the charging of one's mobile devices. Should you let the battery deplete until it cannot sustain operating the device, does it harm the battery to be left charging etc.

Samsung glitch randomly sends pictures to contacts

It has been reported that there is a "glitch" in Samsung's Messaging app which unbeknown by the user, quietly sends picture messages to random contacts without leaving a trace.
In one case, the app sent an entire photo gallery to a contact in the middle of the night. This could be incredibly embarrassing for some.

Apple: imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

When Apple introduced the iPhone X, rather than focusing on the advances in the phone with things like the FacedID which unlike Apple's competitors, actually made it work properly. The unrelenting critics of the "notch" and other aspects of the phone were obviously designed as a distraction to detract.
Every time Apple introduces something new, no matter how innovative, the detractors try to find something wrong and if they cannot do it, then they make it up.
On Medium they published an article that shows that since the iPhone X was introduced, others have copied the design, despite being critical of it in the first place.
