In turn, Android is also known for its extensive customization, but it's important to note that if you don't have the proper care and information about what is being changed or changed at the time, this can present a problem in the terminal , which will prevent the proper functioning of the same or even will not allow the installed apps to work properly.



Subsequently we will tell you more about mistakes of the Android system and why they appear. Without further ado, stay with us and find out all the details, data and information relating to these annoying and incessant events presented in our respective terminals.

    They are all kinds of breakdowns which almost completely prevent the pre-installed applications from functioning, the predefined mechanisms and in some cases more drastic the system in general. These can cause us too many problems to the point that it is possible that the error that occurs on the mobile phone has no solution.

    Another possible reason is that we made the mistake of download something without having any guarantee of its veracity . This normally occurs when we disable the unknown sources option and proceed to download an APK file from an alternative page or shop. If we're not sure where we're going, we may eventually download a cocktail of viruses to our cell phone.

    On the other hand, there are also errors due to bad updates . In some cases, our smartphones have all updates fully installed and we don't need others. But despite that, it is very likely that updates on other phones will continue to rise. This makes some people want to upgrade their phone to their liking.

    This leads users to install updates that are not due to the terminal, causing the mobile device to function in the worst case collapse and end up generating all kinds of errors.
