The prices of the most in-demand and usually the best phones in the market tend to be expensive. And having to replace it each year is not ideal, we all wish we could have a phone that could last a lifetime but as the technology advances each day it is only natural we want to keep up with it, and after all one of the best feelings is when you get a brand new phone!
Avoid The Accidents
One thing you should always do is handle your phone with care. Accidents are bound to happen however try to keep your phone as secure as possible. Holding your phone the proper way to prevent it from dropping, some smartphones do come more durable than others for this purpose. Another accident to try to avoid is water damage, as it has been proven the rice method does not work! And as some phones r marketed as waterproof and water repellent we have found in all our years of repairing that this is one of the most common accidents customers face.
Be Safe Than Sorry
This may seem obvious but the number of customers we have that has either forgot to put their case on or never got round to buying one and accidentally dropped their phone will surprise you. Protecting your phone by using a case and a tempered screen protector really can save your phone from countless scenarios and save you from having to get a screen replacement or worst case scenario buying a new phone.
Your Phone Hates Extreme Weather Too
One factor that may be getting overlooked is the temperature of the phone. Nearly all smartphones have great hardware but this doesn’t mean they are perfect. Your phone should always have a room temperature because if your phone is in hot temperatures it will overheat and this could damage the hardware similar to cold temperatures.
Think About Your Battery
Keeping your battery lasting long is also very important. None of us wants a phone that constantly needs charging every couple of hours. This does stem from no one really considers that rechargeable batteries are usually rated by charge cycles. Every time you recharge your smartphone to full, that’s considered a cycle. The more you do it, the less your battery lasts.
Clean Your Storage
This may seem irrelevant for those who have 128GB and above but regardless the more you have stored on your device, apps or media files you have installed, the more slow your phone will be.. Over a period of time all that storage used can cause performance issues slowing your device down considerably.
This should be a regular habit for any device user but you should remove any and all content you don’t need. If you have too many apps, start getting rid of the ones you never use, Apps store a lot of cache too and clearing this will keep your phone fresh. If your phone is full of photos or videos, you can upload them to a cloud storage like Google Drive, Apple iCloud or Dropbox.
