Smartphones are becoming a more and more important part of our lives. Almost everybody uses a smartphone nowadays, and on this point I would say that we may consider it a necessity for life.
They give us access to the internet, they let us control our music and other media, they allow us to browse the web, they help us with our work and many other things.
They are also very useful in many other ways.
The smartphone is really useful when it comes to doing business: the iOS and playstore apps, in particular, allows you to do everything (e-mailing, reading news reports, etc) without even leaving your house and without even having to take your eyes off the screen.
The smartphone is also very useful when it comes to socializing and communicating with people in the world, but especially with friends and family: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp… these are some of the things that are now done through our smartphones.
In other words: The smartphone is a wonderful device that helps us to do everything.
Having said this, smartphones are expensive as well and it is our duty to protect them from external conditions like dust, falling down, breakage etc.
In this blog, I will share some tips on how to take care of your mobile device so that it will last longer and you will get the most out of it.
1. Get A Screen Protector Glass For the Mobile Phone
A scratch on the front screen of a mobile phone looks ugly. It not only lowers down the look of a mobile device but also is not good for it.
Nowadays, every smartphone comes with protected glasses. But to double down the security, it is better to install one more glass on top of the touchscreen. Don’t worry it won’t affect the touch screen functionality of the device, rather it will protect the front screen from scratches, dust particles and fall downs. If accidently the mobile has fallen down then a screen protector breaks first and safeguard the delicate touch screen.
Protectors for phones vary in prices and I recommend not to waste your money on cheap protectors. Instead you should buy a good protector and never ever worry about your phone. Folks that buy cheap protectors, they will complain about the breakage of the glass protector at corners. This not only makes your phone look less attractive but also the protection of the device is reduced.
While purchasing a cover for mobile, make sure it is made from good quality glass, scratchless and does not degrade the screen quality. You can either choose glossy screen protectors or matt ones depending upon your usability. Some people also prefer privacy screen guards and the benefit of using this type of screen protector is that people nearby will not be able to see your screen although you have to increase the brightness of the mobile phone more than usual.
2. Choose a Good Quality Mobile Cover or Mobile Skin
Now you have chosen a glass protector for the front face but what about the backside of it. The backside of your device is still vulnerable to dust, scratches, breakages and other external things. In order to protect it, you can either use a mobile skin or a mobile cover.
While purchasing a cover make sure that it is not too hard as the hard cover will put scratches on your phone when you remove it. Always choose a soft cover that does not interfere with the buttons like volume, local screen etc. A cover also protects your device when it falls down and avoids any serious breakage and saves a lot of money.
It is also important that you should clean your device after every 15 days by removing the back cover. All electronics gadgets attract dust and if you don’t clean it, it will cause scratches and in turn degrade the look of the device. So, it is mandatory to deeply clean the device after 2 weeks.
To enhance the look of the device, some people prefer laptop stickers at the back of mobile phones. They look great, are affordable, easy to apply and highly customizable. If you are used to carry your laptop then you can put your mobile phone into a laptop bag.
3. Properly Charge Your Mobile Phone Battery
A mobile phone battery is a very important part of our daily lives. It is responsible for keeping the device (mobile) alive and working well. If a battery is not charged properly, it may not be able to keep up with its work and eventually it may end up being useless. This can be dangerous as it can lead to unexpected shutdowns of your device or even worse – you could lose your data or your life!
Some people unplug their mobile phone before the battery is charged fully which is a bad practice as experts recommend that a mobile phone should only be unplugged from charging when it is fully charged.
Another thing that degrades the lifespan of your smartphone battery is when you play games or watch videos during charging. This interrupts the charging cycle of the battery and hence lowers its durability.
4. Update the Operating System of Your Mobile Device
The operating system is the backbone of our mobile phones. It is responsible for managing apps, services and various other things that we use on a daily basis.
So far, there are no reliable tools for updating the operating system of your phone. They have to be manually downloaded and installed. This makes it very difficult for users to get a fast upgrade of their mobile device. The problem is that they have to do this every time they want to fix bugs or install new features on their phone.
The smartphone is currently the most trusted device because of its great power and its ability to be used everywhere with almost no effort (in case you do not want to sit in front of your computer).
It has become a very important tool for many people that has allowed them to display a lot of information with a single click on the screen so taking care of it is important.
