Smartphones have become a large part of our daily lives. They provide a level of convenience that is unmatched when it comes to keeping in touch with others, taking care of online banking, providing us with useful information when we have questions, taking photos and videos, and streaming music. Of course, these hand-held miracles come at a price. So, it’s important to take good care of them if you want to enjoy years of productive service.
While Android manufacturers keep improving the strength of smartphone screens, the surfaces are still susceptible to scratches and breakage. Here are a few tips to safeguard your phone from potential problems.
– Cases. The most obvious way to protect your Android phone and its screen is to buy a protective case for it that covers the entire phone. This will not only protect the screen from direct impacts, it will cushion the fall if your phone should ever accidentally fall to the ground. This is the number one cause of screen cracking.
– Stylus. Many Android phones come with a stylist tool that is specifically manufactured for that phone’s make and model. Never use anything other than the prescribed stylus or your finger when operating your phone. Even if it seems like no harm is being done, a foreign stylus can damage the screen and make it less sensitive and responsive.
– Heat. Using your phone during the day is not uncommon and isn’t normally harmful. However, if you continue to use your phone for extended periods of the time while exposing it to direct sunlight, that can damage the sensitivity of the screen.
– Lag. Be sure to engage the automatic shutdown feature on your phone, that turns the screen off after long pauses in between use. Leaving your screen on for long periods of time while not in use could cause the display to be permanently “burned” onto your screen.
