Extend The Life Of Your Smartphone

Get The Most Out Of Your Phone


Over the last few years, with constant improvements in technology, we have seen state of the smart phones grace our shop windows. However, the price of these phones generally tends to increase year on year. To help get you the most bang for your buck, we have put together a list of tips that could improve the lifespan of your smartphone.

Invest In A Case

When you are choosing your case it’s important to go for durability and protection rather than appearance. Otterbox tends to be one of the more popular phone case brands as it protects against water seeping inside the phone and provides a cushion for the phone if it’s dropped.

Charge Wisely

Some people feel the need to have their battery fully charged at all times, however, this can severely damage your battery’s lifespan. Plugging your phone in overnight and leaving it in the charger for too long can actually deplete the battery life. Another tip is to make sure to charge your phone with the correct charger that came with the device. There are alternative chargers that may be appealing because of their low cost; however they tend not to charge your phone properly.

Avoid Potential Hazards

Most of the time, the lifespan of your phone depends on how you care for the phone. Avoiding potential hazards such as hot or cold temperatures, water/moisture and rough handling can decrease the likelihood of an unfortunate accident occurring. For example, people who like to play music in the shower have tendency’s to use the speakers from their smartphone. However, although the phone itself is not getting wet, the steam from the shower can corrode internal components of the phone.

Switch Off The Power

Your smartphone should be treated like any other electrical appliance in your home and turned off regularly. Allowing your phone to power down regularly will not only increase it’s lifespan but it will allow it to run more efficiently. We recommend switching off your phone for a few minutes once a week, allowing it to rest.
