One of the most dangerous things about your phone is when the screen goes dark. When you’re out and about your phone can go to a low battery mode and it makes the screen dark.
If you’re out in the sun, you can’t see your phone. And this does cause a lot of different issues. For instance, if there’s an emergency, you can’t see your phone. And that’s a huge problem.
How are you going to contact someone when your screen is darkened but your phone is still on? Sometimes you can go into the shade and make a call.
Nevertheless this is dangerous and cell phone companies need to start asking if it’s okay to darken people’s screens, or the cell phone maker needs to ask the question.
If your phone screen is dark to save power, and it creates a dangerous situation, that is not needed. I’m hoping in the future cell phones don’t have this feature or there’s a software update that asks people if it’s okay to darken their phones to save battery life.
It’s just something I’ve noticed as of late, that’s super annoying. It hasn’t been during an emergency but I was thinking if it was during an emergency, that would not be a good thing.
And something bad could happen because I’m not able to dial the phone. After all, maybe the sun is too bright and I’m outside. Saving battery life is great but not at the expense of safety is my point here.
Hopefully, phones will do this in the future. And not cause issues like not being able to see your screen during the day, which is not a big deal. If not an emergency but if it’s an emergency. That would be a really big deal and super frustrating and can cause people to be in huge trouble.
If they can’t see their phone during an emergency when they’re outside then they may not be able to get help despite the phone still being on.
