How to Prevent Cell Phone Damage

The latest smart phones are sleek and fancy and are a portable computer in the palm of your hands, all these great things aside, you have a fragile slippery and expensive phone that keeps falling out of your hands. So far the slipperiest phone I’ve come across is the iPhone 5c and Samsung Galaxy s3 and s4 are a close 2nd. The 5c is polished with a shiny lacquered coating, Which makes the device very slippery. The 5c is just the 5 with a paint job, it’s really not an upgrade but actually a downgrade due to the slippery factor and plastic coating.

The best way to prevent a cracked cell phone is to invest in protection. LCD repairs are not cheap especially for the latest cell phones on the market.

Don’t be fooled by the cute and stylized cell phone cases that are flimsy and sold for $5 to $15. These cases usually tend to be designed just for accessorizing your phone and not protecting it from hard impact falls. Most people tend to buy them because they are cheap and add style and they forget that it doesn’t do anything to protect the cell phone. They only help with preventing scratches and scuffs. The best cases that keep your phone alive even from the biggest fall on a hard surface are the sturdy cases that cover all four corners.

If you want to avoid repairing or replacing your cell phones LCD screen, power button, microphone, motherboard, battery, or charging port, then you will want to invest in a quality case that costs between $30 to $75.
