Mobile devices are a tool in our daily lives, something that, even if we resist, are a fundamental part of communication between you and your loved ones, friends or colleagues at work or school.

Since these small devices began to exist, they have not stopped undergoing modifications and updates that provide us with more benefits as the days go by.

Cell phones have changed both internally and externally, and in both aspects improvements have been noted; high resolution camera, more storage capacity, mobile data, touch screens, bright colors, goodbye to the keyboard! Unimaginable designs, details that we didn’t know fulfilled a specific function like the stripes.

And it is precisely on this last detail that we will focus on this occasion, have you paid attention to the stripes that some cell phones have on the sides? They are not for mere appearance, since they have a function for our device, so know what it is.

These stripes are generally placed at the top and bottom of our device, just above where the volume up or down buttons are, and at the bottom where the chip compartment is.

Initially, the side stripes are to provide greater coverage, that is, to have a better Wi-Fi network range, Bluetooth (in case you use it), as well as other data networks.

Sharing the internet on another cell phone will also benefit from the simple fact that your mobile device has these side stripes.

Clearly, they have a great ‘plus’ which is to give our device a more beautiful and sophisticated view.

So now you know, this is the reason for the stripes on the sides of your cellular device, it is not just mere aesthetics.
