Tips to Protect Your Phone From Damage

If you are like most people, you depend on your smartphone for everything from actual phone calls and texts to navigation and social media. It goes everywhere you go, making it very susceptible to damage. A slip of the fingers and your phone can have a devastating crash on the pavement or land in the ocean. While it is impossible to prevent all damage, there are ways to limit the risk. Here are a few tips to extend the life of your phone.

  • Buy a quality case and screen protector. One of the bare necessities for protecting your cell phone is outer protection. A screen protector and case can give your phone extra insulation from screen cracks, scratches and even water damage. Plus, with custom options for cases, you can personalize the look of your phone.
  • Keep your phone away from metal objects. If you place your phone in your pocket or your purse, make sure it is not next to your keys or other metal objects. Keys are notorious for scratching cell phone screens.
  • Be wary of water. If you are going to be around water, leave your cell phone somewhere dry. Whether you are in the bathroom, at the beach or by the pool, leave your phone elsewhere. It is just a matter of time before it ends up in the surf or in the toilet, possibly ruining your phone.

Even with diligence in reducing the risk for damage, it still can happen. Keep in mind that most minor damage like screen cracks, water damage and battery issues can be fixed at local mobile device repair shops for a fraction of the price of replacement.

Protect and Personalize Your Smart Phone

Cases have been used to protect cell phones ever since they were as thick as a textbook. With the high cost of iPhones and other high-end smart phones today, however, having a protective case is more important than ever. While there are thousands of choices of cases and screen protectors, why not personalize your case to make your phone stand out in a crowd?

Personalized Smart Phone Cases

The newest way to protect your smart phone is with personalized cases. With a few clicks, you can design your new case to reflect your personality. With many people owning the same phone, this is a great way to make it easy to spot your phone when you are out with your friends. Here are some great personalization options now available for smart phone cases:

  • Add photos. Personalized cases can be made from one or more photos. Some companies offer easy to fill templates, which can hold 12 or more photos you can upload right from your phone, social media site or computer.
  • Add patterns. Choose your own patterns and colors to give your phone case pizazz. You can use these alone, or with other options like personal photos.
  • Different case options. Get the case you need with the personalized look you crave. High end accessory companies give two or more options in personalized cases.

Personalized smart phone cases are also a thoughtful and unique gift for friends and family. Get your own case with a design that matches your personality, and order others for upcoming birthdays and other events. It’s a great way to protect these expensive devices with a flair that only you can create.
