How to Fix Mobile Dala Connectivity or Cellular Networks Problems?

Widespread bugs

Bugs might be faced by you in one or more than one app in case you neglect the lagging of phone. If issues keep appearing almost at random in all kinds of apps, you’ll find it harder to pin down one root cause. Perhaps a hardware component is failing, or the device is overheating too often, or an upgrade didn’t work correctly. But you don’t need to diagnose your phone to fix it.

How to Fix Widespread Bugs?

#Method 1. The old fallback of turning your device off and on again can solve a variety of problems. This works because it clears out everything in your phone’s temporary memory. If a couple apps are making the whole phone go haywire, that might be enough to get your device working again.

#Method 2. If the phone has frozen and you can’t power it off in the normal way, try a special hardware reset combination. To figure out just what buttons to press and hold in order to force a reset, look up your phone’s make and model online.

#Method 3. If the off-and-on-again fail-safe fails, it’s time to indulge in some detective work. Unexplained crashes can be caused by an overheating phone, so monitor its temperature while you’re using and charging it. If it’s often hot to the touch, the issue might lie with a faulty charger or a battery that’s on its last legs.

#Method 4. A lack of local storage space can also cause random bugs and crashes, so check how much free room the device has. On Android, open Settings then head to Storage; on iOS, open Settings then tap General and iPhone Storage. If overcrowding is an issue, you need to make some room now

Poor battery life in Huawei Nova 3i

Every smartphone owner struggles to some extent with battery Life. But when your charge drops by half in just a couple of hours, you’re in trouble. This can happen when a battery gets old and thus starts degrading fast. In this case, following are some methods you can try to help your battery’s life span.

#Method 1. If you have an older phone, you should look at getting the battery professionally replaced. Or, if you’re do for an upgrade, consider buying a new phone model and recycling your old one.

#Method 2.  Figure out if you can lay the battery drain blame on one or two apps. In Huawei Nova 3i, you can check this via the Battery entry in Settings. If you do identify a few energy hogs, remove them from your phone to see if the problem clears up. While you’re poking around the Battery menu, you can access the special battery saver mode in Huawei Nova 3i. Turning this on won’t fix your underlying problems, but it can give you a bit more time between charges.

#Method 3. To extend battery life even further, at least temporarily, dim the brightness of the display or put the phone in airplane mode periodically. Location tracking can also drain your battery—switch it off in Android in Settings > Location and in iOS in Settings > Privacy and Location Services.

Troubleshooting other issues

If you’re having problems that aren’t specifically mentioned here, you might be able to dig up some solutions online. Just be sure to choose specific keywords that include your type of phone and the exact problem that’s plaguing it. Otherwise, you’ll encounter thousands of results of varying relevance.

Beyond that, your last resort can be a full reset of your phone. This process returns your phone back to its original factory state, so if it’s still buggy after that, then you’re probably looking at a faulty or failing hardware part. Resetting a phone isn’t too difficult—just be sure to back up all your important information first, because the reset will wipe all of it.

On the most recent versions of stock Android, you need to head to Settings, then tap System and Reset. Hit Factory data reset then confirm your choice.

You’ll see a brief summary of what’s going to get wiped before the process starts. If you’re using a non-stock version of Android, then the procedure might vary slightly, but the reset option should be easy to find in Settings.

On iOS devices, you need to open Settings, go to General and Reset, then tap Erase All Content and Settings. You’ll need to enter your passcode or Apple ID and password to confirm your choice.

Remember ,you’ll need to know your Google or Apple account details to set up the phone from scratch again. And if you’ve enabled two-step verification on your accounts, you’ll need a backup method for verifying your identity—something that doesn’t involve your recently-wiped phone.

It might sound like a fiddly process, but it won’t take too much time. Ultimately, the factory reset is the most comprehensive option for fixing a range of persistent device bugs and issues.
