Extend the Life of Your Cell Phone

Whether you own the latest iPhone or an older model Samsung Galaxy, you know how expensive these new cell phones can be. The old ‘free’ phone is hard to come by if you want the latest technology and many people spend hundreds of dollars to get the newest cell phone on the market. Once you finally have that cell phone in your possession, you hope that it will last a year or two before you need to upgrade again. Unfortunately, these small and expensive devices can be easily damaged. So how can you protect your investment?

Protecting Your New Cell Phone

Your cell phone goes everywhere you go, making it even more likely to get damaged. From impact and pressure damage from dropping or sitting on your phone to water damage from spilled drinks or being dropped in the pool, your phone can be exposed to many hazards. Although there are no fool-proof ways to protect your phone, it is worth the investment to add some protection, such as:

  • Hard cover cases. Hard cover cases can reduce the amount of cracks and scratches your new phone will get. It is much less expensive to replace a case than your phone.
  • Screen protectors. Protection for your screen is a must if you are accident prone or lead an active lifestyle.
  • Skins or covers. While not as effective as a hard case, skins or another decorative covers still provide some protection while personalizing the look of your phone.

But even with screen protectors and cases, cell phones still can get damaged. The good news is that a cracked screen or water damage does not necessarily mean that you need a new phone. There are now many convenient cell phone repair shops in malls and retail shopping centers that can fix most cell phone issues for a fraction of the cost of replacement.

By using protection gear and the occasional cell phone repair at a local shop, you can make your new cell phone last – at least until the next hot model of phone is released!
