Cellular Phones/battery


What is the proper way to charge a cell phone if you use it a lot should you get a spare battery or replace it often?Also if you download too many apps is that good or should you get a seperate device for lets say things like kindle or pandora?

These days batteries don't overcharge and you can really charge a phone whenever you choose. You don't have to worry about ruining the phone or battery. Absolutely no need to get a second battery. Batteries take years to die so don't be concerned. You will probably need a new phone before you need a new battery. If you have a lot of large apps that take up lots of space and you don't have the space because you have a device with limited memory then buy a kindle or iPad or something else. Hope this helps.
