How to Keep Your Phone Safe
If you own an expensive phone, then its safety should be a priority to you. If you’re the kind of person that sometimes drops things, you never know when it’s going to be your phone. The feeling of cracking your screen, especially after a recent purchase, is not a good one, and no one should have to experience it. However, the reality is that eventually, after being dropped enough times, your screen will most likely crack.
There are a few ways to protect your phone so that it does not break, at least not right away. There are safety measures designed to protect the fragile glass from even medium-sized impacts. Because your phone does so many things for you, like keeping track of your contacts, making phone calls, texting, using social media and other apps, and even making sure you don’t miss an important appointment, it’s a great idea to protect it.
Get a Case
The first step to ensuring your phone stays protected is to get a case for it. Several different companies make cases for phones, and some of them focus on aesthetics while others focus on safety. If you’re looking for an iPhone 6 case, for instance, you should get a case that will protect it from damage if you’re concerned about safety.
Phone cases that protect your phone aren’t always as attractive-looking because they have to be made out of durable materials like hard plastic or rubber, and in some cases, metals. It’s easier to get a cheap case that looks pretty, and while some cases can look good and also protect your phone, a majority of them will not hold up against the floor when you drop your phone.
A good case should tightly encase your phone so that if any part of the phone hits the floor, the case will take the impact. Good safety cases are designed to absorb the shock instead of the phone so that the screen won’t crack.
Get a Screen Protector
While a good phone case can do wonders for a fragile phone with a glass touchscreen, you can add extra protection by using a screen protector. There are several different types of screen protectors and each of them is designed to fit a specific type of phone. If you order one online, you should make sure it can fit your phone’s screen.
There are typically two types of screen protectors. There are glass ones, which can protect your screen and allow for smooth tapping and scrolling, and then there are plastic ones, which are sometimes stronger but not as smooth to use. It’s a good idea to try both of them out so that you can see which one you prefer. Plastic doesn’t really crack as easily as glass, but it also might not be thick enough to prevent your screen from cracking. Either way, if you look online you should be able to find a glass or plastic protector that will fit your smartphone.
