Our lives have undergone a drastic transformation in the last two decades, as mobile devices become more powerful, and with close to 3 billion smartphones and tablets in use around the world, the surge in popularity seems set to continue. The latest generation of smartphones and tablets can do just about anything, and as rugged as they might be, things can go wrong if they are not handled correctly, and when you consider the cost of such a device, it does make sense to treat it with care. Here are just a few tips on how to maximise the life of your mobile device.
- Buy a Good Quality Case – It makes little sense to spend a few hundred pounds on a state of the art device and fail to provide adequate protection. All the well-known models will have cases designed specifically, and it fits perfectly, giving both the casing and the screen protection against damage caused by dropping the device. Dropping the device might cause it to cease working, and if you happen to live in the capital, there is affordable tablet repairs in Earls Court, and it is very close to the tube station and you can drop the device off in the morning and collect it on your way home.
- Reboot the Device Daily – It is recommended to reboot the device once a day, as this helps to delete unwanted data and allows the device to clear itself of clutter. Many people leave their mobile device on 24/7, while charging during the night, and although the device is designed to be turned on all the time, it is a good idea to turn it off sometimes.
- Be Wary of Excessive Temperatures – Your smartphone or tablet will malfunction if it overheats, so avoid leaving it in direct sunlight, and if you happened to forget the phone after a few hours parking in direct sunlight, it might already be too late and you have no choice, but to take it in for repairs. Even extreme cold can cause the device to cease operating, but if a person is outside in very cold weather, the device should not be exposed to the elements for too long.
- Use Screen Protection Film – This is a very useful accessory and consists of a thin piece of special film and when it is professionally applied, it will protect the screen from scratches, and can easily be removed at any time. There are specific covers for each model and this ensures the film does not restrict cameras of the microphone, so make sure you buy the right film for your model and ask the store to apply the film for you, as they are experts and it can be a tricky process.
