In case of laptops we should remove battery, then turn it off and hold power button for 15 seconds to completely discharge the motherboard. Whats the procedure in case of a smartphone or a tablet with non removable battery?

  • Completely discharging a battery can damage it, so you should only discharge a battery if there is no other way. Instead just power off the device, this usually cuts off power of most of the chips in a phone.

    @Robert looks like the question is about discharging the device, not the battery.

  • ... which sometimes I have to ask, is there a reason why you want to discharge the device?
