7 Simple Tips to Protect Your Cellphone from Damage
A smartphone is perhaps the most important device that we own. Without it, our professional and personal lives would become very difficult. From organizing our daily tasks to communicating with loved ones, smartphones make our lives much easier and simpler. We tend to take them with us wherever we go – but this also makes them prone to damage as well. Replacing or repairing a damaged phone is not only expensive but it also risks us having to go days, perhaps even weeks, without a Smartphone. Plus, accidents can happen quite easily – slippery hands can lead to an accidental drop and it can set you back hundreds of dollars.
Keeping all this in mind, there is no doubt that we need to take the utmost care of our smartphones. Precaution is much better than having to deal with a broken phone and it is not difficult to take care of your smartphone. Follow these 7 effective tips to safeguard your cellphone against all kinds of damage.
GET A DURABLE SCREEN PROTECTOR Most phones these days come with protective scratch-resistant glass on top such as Corning’s Gorilla Glass. While this glass is resistant against scratches and impact, it is not indestructible. Simply leaving your phone in your pocket with keys and other sharp items can leave a troubling scratch on the screen. The best way to protect your phone from scratches and accidental impacts is to use a phone screen protector. So next time, once you have applied a screen protector, you do not have to worry about your scratching your phone.
USE A HIGH-QUALITY CASE COVER A Smartphone is very likely to take at least a few drops in its lifecycle. If any one of those drops ends up at the wrong angle then you could have a broken screen (and even a broken back glass with newer phones). This is the reason a protective phone case-cover is an absolute must-have for your Smartphone these days. You can find a high-quality case at any cell phone accessories store.
AVOID EXTREME TEMPERATURES Extreme temperatures whether hot or cold can have an adverse effect on your phone. Exposing your phone to excessively hot or cold temperatures may damage the battery and cause it to misbehave. This can lead to your phone's performance or battery life taking a significant hit. In severe circumstances, it can even kill your smartphone completely.
Keep it away from water When going out in the rain, make sure to keep your phone in a case or bag to prevent water from going in. Similarly, if you accidentally drop your phone in water then it is best to turn it off, take out the battery (if possible), and let it dry for at least a day.
CLEAN YOUR PHONE WITH A MICROFIBER CLOTH The best approach to cleaning a phone is to make use of a microfiber cloth. This is the same cloth that comes with new eyeglasses and other gadgets. It is recommended to clean your phone with a dry microfiber cloth to avoid scratching and damaging your phone’s screen. If you do not have one, then you can easily find it at a mobile electronics accessories store.
GET A STRAP COVER There are a lot of Mobile phone covers that allow you to attach a strap to your phone that then goes around your wrist. This strap cover greatly reduces the risk of accidental drops. If you drop your phone very often then it is a great cell phone accessory to have in your arsenal.
FOLLOW GOOD BATTERY CHARGING HABITS Always try to use the charger that comes with your phone. If you have misplaced it or cannot use it, use a charger that has a similar power rating. Chargers that have a lower power rating will damage your phone’s battery over time. Try to keep the charge on your phone between 20 and 90 percent at all times, charge your phone frequently but for smaller durations, rather than leaving it to charge overnight.
CONCLUSION Smartphones are becoming more and more durable each passing year, but they are still not indestructible. For such a high investment, it makes sense to invest a little in protecting it. As they say, is better to be safe, than sorry. information sourced from: https://bit.ly/3eD0tD2
