It never fails – the one time you aren’t taking caution to protect your phone is the exact moment when you drop your phone onto hard concrete, and of course, it lands glass-side down, because fate wouldn’t have it any other way. Normally, this would mean that your phone screen is cracked and maybe even unusable. But, if you had been protecting your phone’s screen, it could mean that you may not even have a scratch.
Here are 5 ways to protect your phone screen.
1.Invest in a wallet or flip case
This is a great way to protect your phone because these cases not only cover the sides and back of the phone, but also the front when not in use (as long as you always attach the clasp). The great thing is these cases also come with compartments for credit cards and money allowing you to go wallet free or, even in a pinch, purse free.
2. Use screen protectors
Screen protectors can be the best thing available to protect your screen from scratches or hits. The best thing is that they are usually cheap and most are really easy to apply without creating bumps or bubbles in them.
3. Keep the phone out of your pocket
Pockets, in general, were not designed to fit your phone, and the likelihood of it falling out of your pocket is high especially when moving a lot. By keeping it out of your pocket, you are protecting your phone from the potential danger of being dropped.
4. Buy phones that offer free screen replacements
One of the best things about Android phone manufacturers is that they offer one free screen replacement with their flagship models. The best thing is that it doesn’t matter how the screen got broken, they fix it with no questions asked. Apple, unfortunately, doesn’t offer such deals even under their AppleCare protection.
5. Don’t text while walking
No matter where you go, you see people walking while texting. It’s really difficult to pay attention to what is going on around you while also texting, meaning there’s a good chance you might run into something or someone and drop your phone.
