Is talking on phone with low battery charge bad for its health?


No. Not necessarily. Some say its not too good to do that but I totally disagree. My reason is very simple.
Smartphones and power banks (except fake power banks of course - that tend to have sand in them) typically come with batteries that are designed to perform optimally for about 1.5 to 2 years tops. You may have noticed that smartphones require more frequent recharge after about a year or a bit longer.  This is due to the life cycle of the batteries which is generally 500. To learn more have a look at this - Will you get battery problems when you cross 500 lifecycles?

Many factors affect performance but don’t worry about them. The important thing to know is that one cycle is used when you completely use up a battery from 100% full to zero. This can be at a stretch or twice at 50%, etc.
Whichever way you look at it, you’ll still get optimal performance for about 1.5 years. Thereafter you may begin to notice the impact of degradation as explained in the above blog. Even after that, you can still get good performance from your battery, so why worry? YOLO! 🙂🙂

It is however important to know how to manage your battery so it lasts you a bit longer especially when low. Have a look at this if you didn’t follow the link above - My Samsung Note 4 is draining battery. What's the solution?
