Protect Your Device

This is a tip for distracted people like me and always drop it on the floor. The greatest care ins this case is investing in accessories. In this case, choose a good protective screen film and a hard and durable cover that will certainly avoid headaches in the future.

Avoid Contact with Water

Water and mobile phone are not a match. But we all already got in trouble because of it. I remember dropping my husband’s phone on the beach once. We were lucky to recover it in fractions of seconds.

But ideally, if something like this happens, it is better to dry it with a hairdryer and then store it in a bowl containing rice. It is known that this grain is very useful for removing moisture from surfaces. Leave the device there for a few days and try to turn it on again. Have you ever tried it before? I am a bit sceptical. The best thing to do is avoiding wet surfaces.

Be Careful When Cleaning it

Yep, it is quite important It is important to keep your cell phone clean regularly. The best way to do this is to use wet tissues with a pure alcohol solution. Water is not recommended as it can enter the internal structures of the appliance and damage it.

And of course, the lack of cleaning of the appliance can lead to a reduction in its useful life since its sides will start peeling off. Also, dirt particles are likely to get into the phone’s ports, such as the one reserved for charging the battery or using headphones.

Now that you know some of the risks you need to pay attention and take care of your cell phone so that it lasts for a long time!
