4 Ways to Make Your Smartphone Last Longer

When you spend several hundred dollars on an iPhone, Samsung Galaxy or other smartphone, you want to ensure it lasts until you are ready to replace it. Many smartphones have surpassed the cost of a new computer, making them an expensive luxury. On top of being costly, they are more likely to be damaged due to the amount of mobility and use they endure. Here are four ways to help increase the life of your smartphone to get the most from your investment.

  1. Buy a case and screen protector. Make sure your device is protected from accidents with a durable case and a screen protector. Do not even wait a day to head to your nearest retailer to outfit your new phone in protective gear.
  2. Avoid water. While some new smartphones claim to be waterproof, enough water can still cause damage. Do not use your phone when boating, laying by the pool or while soaking in the tub.
  3. Don’t walk and text. Driving and texting is outlawed in many states for safety but walking and texting can also be dangerous. Not only could you get hurt, but you are more likely to damage your phone if you trip or fall.
  4. Find a local repair shop. If an accident does occur, shattering the screen or causing other damage, consider repair versus replacement. Many times, the damage can be repaired the same day at a local cell phone repair shop.

A few precautions and preventive measures can ensure you get the most value from your new smartphone. Plus, it will help keep it in good condition so that you can get the most value when you sell it when it is time to upgrade, reducing the overall cost for owning the latest in mobile device technology.
