Steps in Maintaining a Smartphone


1.Phone protection accessories

After purchasing a new smartphone we usually can’t wait to go home to try out all of its best features. But let’s not forget about one very important thing that needs to be done before we can enjoy our new gadget. Getting additional phone accessories is crucial if you want to keep your new device protected from any damage. Unfortunately, users often refuse to buy phone protection accessories, believing that it is only a waste of money. However, as practice shows, a lot of times protective film on the screen or a good-quality case can not only help maintain the look of the phone but also save you from spending money on additional repair.

2. Clean the junk

Handle your smart device as a living organism, which accumulates trash during its operation and needs to be cleaned from time to time. This advice is especially useful for smartphones running on the Android operating system. By removing unnecessary cache and residual files, as well as freeing RAM, you can significantly reduce the number of glitches on your smartphone. There are numerous apps offered to help you remove all the junk from the device, you just need to pick the one you like.

3. Charge smartphone correctly

Smartphone battery starts to lose its capacity after around 500 charging cycles, but this moment may come much earlier if you charge your phone incorrectly. Try to maintain full charge cycles, meaning do not start charging it, when there’s still some battery left. But at the same time do not wait until it is completely discharged. The best time to start charging is at 15% of the battery.

If you’re in a no-network area, it will be best to turn off the phone completely. Otherwise, it will constantly search for a network and discharge much quicker. An intensive operation has a detrimental effect on the battery.

4.Keep smartphone clean

It has long been proven that mobile devices with large touch screens are very handy. In fact, this unique feature has made them so popular. But sometimes using touch screen may become not as pleasant as it used to be. For instance, it is more and more difficult to get rid of any scratches or stains on the touch screen with time. Therefore it is crucial to keep the hygiene of your device at the highest level, especially since smartphone often touches your face and ears. The bacteria and microbes, accumulated on the device, may cause skin irritation and even provoke the appearance of acne.

5.Find a safe storage place

Choose a safe place to store and keep your phone, while not using it. Make sure that it won’t be accidentally knocked by people walking by. Also, do not leave the smartphone in your bag or any other closed container for a long period of time when the device is not turned off. Charged mobile phone may potentially cause a fire, due to the fact that Li-ion batteries (typical for most phones) give off heat when charging and discharging.
