Simple Ways to Protect Your Smartphone

Your smartphone goes with you wherever you go. It has become an integral part of your life in no time. The bells and whistles in your smartphone makes life so much easier. You have a wealth of information at your fingertips. You can use your smartphone to search for a new recipe on Google, purchase movie tickets, look up the weather, take a selfie, check your social media, email or use it for navigation purposes.

Bored at the airport? You can use it for entertainment, download books or listen to your favourite songs. There is so much you can do with it. In a power outage, your smartphone doubles up as a flashlight, compass and alarm clock. Oh, and in between all of these, don’t forget that you can use it to make and receive calls!

If your smartphone malfunctions, it is easy to see why your entire world comes crashing down. At Tech Genius, we know exactly how important your smartphone is to you. This is why we do everything we can to make sure it stays in good shape with a wide range of high-quality repair services. However, prevention is always better than cure. Here are a few tips to protect your smartphone so it doesn’t break down accidentally in the first place.

Weather Protection

Your smartphone is loaded with impressive features but it is quite fragile otherwise. You may be set to soak in the sun or set sail for a boat ride, but your smartphone is not equipped to do so without breaking down.

Keep it away from harsh weather. Don’t let it burn on a scorching hot deck or freeze in your frozen hands in the winter. Keep it in the shade or in the cool interiors of a handbag in the heat. Tuck it inside your warm pockets in the winter. But refrain from slipping it in your back pocket or it may break when you sit down. At all costs, keep it away from water.

Clear Memory

Your smartphone has a lot of storage. It is tempting to fill it with selfies, photo albums, videos and apps. But it’s not a good idea to do so. An overstuffed smartphone starts slowing down and malfunctioning. Use the cloud storage to your advantage so you don’t need to take up too much hard drive space. Delete photos that are uploaded on social media or cloud storage to clear up memory.

Download Apps with Caution

Many apps have malware that can track your location and sensitive data. Download only apps from authentic, authorized sources. Use wi-fi while doing so and download only secure apps. Make sure your phone is protected from malware.

Protective Case

To minimize the chances of your front screen or back glass cracking if you happen to accidentally drop it, always keep your smartphone in a strong protective case, customized for your brand model. A protective case also keeps it safe from spills, dirt and water leaks.
