When you have a Samsung phone, there is no doubt that you want to do everything you can to keep it in top condition. Although it is not always possible to avoid the need for Samsung phone repairs, there are many things you can do to reduce the risk of damage and keep your phone in good condition. If the worst does happen, be sure to choose your Samsung phone repair provider carefully—not all smartphone repair shops are created equally, and inexperienced techs can do more harm than good. To keep your phone in good shape, follow these tips:
Use a Phone Case and a Screen Protector
It might seem like obvious advice, but every smartphone user has used their device while waiting for a new screen cover to come in the mail or put off purchasing a new case when the old one was damaged. Even when you’re careful, going without a screen protector or phone case is a risky game to play with any kind of smartphone. The reason that repair shops see so many customers in need of Samsung phone screen repairs is that it’s so easy to drop your device and crack the screen. The screen or the outside body of your phone can even be damaged in your purse, pocket, or hand, so never use the device without a strong case and a screen protector.
Keep Your Samsung Phone Charged—But Don’t Overcharge It
Every smartphone user knows the panic that ensues when the low battery warning comes on. Every smartphone user also knows what it’s like to plug their phone in before they go to sleep so that it can charge overnight. As it turns out, both of these situations could be hurting your samsung phone repair. Letting your battery drain completely more than once a month will begin to impact the life of your battery and cause it to wear out increasingly faster. Similarly, charging your phone when it has already reached 100%—such as when you charge it overnight—can also cause your battery to become damaged. Although your phone should block further charging once it reaches 100%, there is still evidence that overcharging is bad for your battery lifespan.
Protect Your Phone from High Temperatures
Temperature is always a concern with smartphones in Tucson. Although both hot and cold temperature extremes can cause issues for smartphones, hot temperatures can be particularly problematic. You can’t stop using your phone just because it’s hot outside, but you can do things to minimize the impact of high temperatures. Don’t leave your phone sitting on your car’s dash or anywhere else in your car where it will be exposed to the sun. When you’re sitting outside, keep your phone in your bag or underneath your other items so that it has some shade. When you’re cooking, keep your phone away from the stove. The more you can minimize exposure to heat, the better you will protect your phone from damage.
Let a Wet Phone Dry Naturally
Getting your phone wet doesn’t have to cause panic, since an experienced Samsung phone repair technician can almost always restore it to normal. However, some people take steps after getting their phones wet that actually cause more damage. Never attempt to dry your phone with a hairdryer, as the hot air could damage your device. Putting your phone in rice is unlikely to help, and though it’s also unlikely to cause damage, it is a waste of time. Instead, remove the battery as soon as possible and let your phone dry out until it can be repaired.
