Do you remember the very first cell phone that you ever got? It was probably a flip phone and it probably didn’t do a whole lot besides make phone calls! These days, though, phones are expected to be able to do a whole lot more. Not only do you need to be able to make calls, but you also need to be able to send text messages, browse the Internet, and even play video games. That’s why smartphones have become so commonplace in every corner of the country. You probably even have a nice touch screen smartphone yourself! Have you given any thought to how you keep that thing safe lately?
Stop and think about it: that screen is very fragile. How often have you seen people struggling to use phones that have screens which are horribly cracked and damaged? Do you really want that to happen to you? Of course not! That’s why you need to be careful and take steps to prevent that from happening. In this quick guide, we’re going to give you the lowdown on how to keep your phone’s screen safe and crack free. You won’t need to be concerned about it after this!
Use the Right Case For Your Phone
Don’t even think about trying to use your phone without a hard case on it. That’s like asking for your screen to get cracked and damaged! What if you’re holding the phone and it accidentally slips and falls while you are using it? Without a case, it’s going to land on a corner and shatter the screen. There won’t be a thing that you can do about it at that point, either. You’ll just have to accept that the phone has been wrecked. Get a case that protects your phone and avoid that!
Always Keep a Firm Grip On It
Remember how we just talked about how a phone could slip out of your hand without a case? Even when you put a case on your phone, you need to remember to hold onto it tightly. Don’t hold it in positions where you could more likely drop it, such as by one corner, or loosely held over your face. Putting yourself in the danger zone with your phone is pointless. As long as you pay attention to the way that you actually grip your phone, you won’t have any issues with dropping it.
Don’t Place Your Phone in Dangerous Spots
Now that you’ve decided to be more careful in terms of how you hold your phone, how about where you put it down? Watch out for putting your phone in dangerous spots where it could easily get knocked to the ground. For example, don’t even think about putting your phone on the corner of a table where it’s not completely on the surface. If part of the phone is sticking off the edge of the table, chances are you’re going to bump into it and knock it off. Broken phone city, ahoy! Be careful or that’s the bus you’ll be on.
