The average selling price of an iPhone has now increased to a staggering Php40,000, and even the middle-range Android phones come with a median tag of Php 18,000. If you’re the type of person who wants to get every drop of value from a device instead of spending money to upgrade annually, it is wise to take better care of your phone and keep it in good condition.
Although there are several ways to do this, MICI has rounded up the simplest steps to take in extending the life of your phone.
1. Remove unnecessary apps, files, and photos
To keep your phone running as fast and lag-free as possible, it’s important to regularly remove any apps, media files, documents, and text messages that you don’t need anymore. It doesn’t take long, but the benefit can be huge – from freeing up storage space to boosting your phone’s RAM capabilities, it will surely improve the overall performance of your device.
2. Keep the phone’s battery in good shape
Most phones, nowadays, use lithium-ion batteries. These batteries last longer by not charging them up to 100%, especially from a too low power level. Instead, maintain your mobile device’s power level between 65% to 75% and charge it little by little. But before plugging it in, make sure that your charging port is dust-free to prevent electrical connection failure. You must also protect your battery from overworking and overheating by turning the brightness down and not leaving it out in direct sunlight.
3. Avoid water damage
The best way to prevent your phone from getting wet is by leaving it in a cool and dry place when you’re about to use the toilet or dip in the pool or beach. You should also avoid placing a drink near your phone to avoid having it spill over. During the rainy season, be extra cautious by using a waterproof case or pouch.
4. Protect your screen
Since most digital devices are delicate, you should always handle them with care. Negligent handling such as pressing too hard on your phone display could sometimes lead to a blotted screen. Don’t also forget to invest in a good screen guard and a protective cover to reduce the chances of your screen getting cracks and scratches.
5. Get a phone insurance
Having reliable phone insurance will help your phone last longer if it accidentally breaks or gets damaged by water. MICI’s phone insurance, in particular, covers risks of physical loss or damage from external causes, such as accidental drop and water spill.
