Everyone has a phone – it’s an indispensable tool that
allows you to communicate with other people, surf the internet for information
on need-to-know information, and so much more.
However, even though the cellphone you just bought is
high quality, it can still be a glorified brick in a short span of time if you
don’t take good care of it. Here are a few ways you can make your phone last
This is perhaps the most common causes of damage for
nearly all phones, and chances are that you’ve most likely dropped yours at
least once or twice for any reason. Most of the time, this is by accident.
Tossing your phone can also make it more likely for
you to damage it if it lands on a hard surface.
2. Keep it
away from any moisture, liquids, or heat.
Like all electronics, these factors can affect how
your phone works. Leaving it out near sources of extreme cold or heat, or
placing it near any moisture or water, can make your phone stop working.
If you need to use your phone when you’re near any water sources (i.e. going to the bathroom or when you’re near a swimming pool), always have a waterproof bag in hand that you can slip your phone it to keep it from getting wet.
the screen properly.
Do not use a spray bottle to clean your phone under
any circumstances. Any liquid droplets could get into small crevices in your
phone and easily damage it, especially if it happens to be switched on.
Instead, use a lint-free cloth to wipe your phone screen.
As much as wireless charging can be incredibly
convenient for your phone in a pinch, it also has its own disadvantages.
Waste heat is one of these disadvantages that wireless charging has, and can potentially destroy your battery in the process. Instead, stick to standard plug-in charging to keep your phone in better shape (it also helps you to get off your device every once in a while).
downloading unnecessary apps.
There’s no need to load your phone with a thousand
games and wallpapers if you don’t intend to use every one of them – not only
will they use up your phone’s memory and processing capacity, but they can also
slow down your phone over time if these apps are all running in the background
at the same time.
If you have to install games to help you kill the
time, install maybe just one or two. Installing an antivirus will also work
wonders in keeping your phone secure and running fast.
