The most attractive part of your smartphone is the screen, but it’s also the most vulnerable one. Common causes of phone damage include accidental drops, exposure to water or other liquids, extreme cold or heat, and others.

When your phone is exposed to some of these conditions, the screen could crack or get a scratch. Apart from that, the phone’s body could pick up a scratch or become damaged. The damage could even touch the smartphone’s internal components.   

This is why one of the first things to do after buying a new phone is to consider how to protect phone from damage. In this post, we look at tips to keep your phone safe and ensure it looks neat at all times.

Using a quality screen protector, buying a well-designed case, getting a phone protection insurance service are some things that can help out. Read on to learn more tips!

 how to protect your phone from damage       

Buy a screen protector

Modern smartphones usually sport scratch- and impact-resistant screens designed with Gorilla Glass or related material. But the screens aren’t indestructible, which is why you need to purchase a screen protector.

With that accessory guiding the screen, you can simply buy a new protector if your keys scratch the screen when the device is in a handbag or your pocket. It’s a lot easier and cheaper to replace your screen protector than the built-in screen that came with your smartphone.

In addition to these, several screen protectors feature an oil-resistant coating, which helps reduce fingerprints & smudges.

Use a quality phone case

In today’s fast-paced and multitasking life, you may accidentally drop the phone at one time or another and damage it. Fortunately, using a phone case will help you avoid this kind of issue.

This tool will offer maximum physical protection to the smartphone and keep its exterior looking like new even after using it for a long time.

Avoid extreme conditions (hot and cold temperatures)

Extremely hot or cold temperatures, as you would expect, damage a smartphone. Avoid leaving your phone in excessive heat or cold for a prolonged period.

Exposure to these extreme conditions can damage the battery and the handset’s internal components, which could result in shortened battery life, loss of data, or even the need to get a new mobile phone.

Additionally, extreme cold also makes certain parts of a phone become more rigid, which will leave the device more prone to damage from impact. You can prevent this kind of damage due to extreme temperatures by applying common sense.

For instance, on a very hot day, avoid leaving the phone exposed to the scorching heat of the sun or in an unattended parked vehicle for a prolonged period.

On a bitter cold day, don’t leave the device in your car or an outer pocket of your jacket/coat. Instead, keep it in an inside pocket. That way, your body heat can make it stay warm.

If your handset is exposed to extreme cold or heat, take it inside, and let it return to room temperature slowly. This is particularly important if the phone is cold since going from hot to cold too rapidly can make condensation build up inside the phone, which could cause water damage.

Hold your phone firmly

The most common reason why a phone or tab will drop from your hand accidentally is due to the way you’re holding it. This is why you need to have a firm grip on the mobile device. Don’t ever hold your smartphone or tab loosely because it is quite delicate.

Keep the mobile device away from water

When your smartphone comes in contact with water (or other liquids), it will become wet and start malfunctioning. This can occur at the beach, during rain, and while holding the phone with wet hands (in the pool).

Make sure your smartphone or tab doesn’t come in contact with water unless it’s waterproof. Sometimes, your phone screen can become damaged on exposure to foggy weather.

The best way to prevent this sort of issue is to avoid exposing the device screen to mist.
