In the blink of an eye, we can easily destroy our most prized tech devices. There’s nothing worse than getting a brand new phone or tablet, only to completely shatter the screen after one misstep.
Luckily, many of the most common tech device accidents are fairly easily avoidable. To help you keep your most prized tech devices intact, here are some tips on how you can avoid common blunders.
Liquid spills can be the kiss of death for most devices, especially laptops. While many repair centers claim that they’ll be able to undo the liquid damage, some tech experts agree that once a device has been the victim of a liquid spill, it’s irrevocably damaged.
This is why it’s essential that you’re always vigilant about keeping liquids at least five feet away from your devices. While we all tend to be extremely careful with brand new devices, we tend to be a bit more lax with devices that we’ve had for awhile. However, you’ll be a lot happier if you always keep your phone and laptop far away from any open containers. Remember, even some of the best protective iPhone cases can’t prevent water or other liquids from seeping in and damaging your phone. This is why it’s good to be extra careful.
One wrong move and you can drop your phone or tablet, shattering the screen. While it’s relatively simple to find a business that offers screen repairs, these services are pretty expensive. Plus, if you have an older device, it can be impossible to find the part you need to repair your screen.
This is why it’s crucial that you take extra caution when handling your tech devices. For example, if you exercise while using your MP3 player or phone to listen to music, invest in an armband holder that will keep your device secure. It’s too easy to accidentally drop your device while you’re swinging your arms. Furthermore, a protective case is typically a good investment. While a case might not protect against an extremely high drop, it will indeed protect your device from damage from drops at lower heights.
The most important thing to remember is to never get complacent with your devices, even if they’re older. The more care you put into your tech devices, the longer they’ll last you and you won’t find yourself in need of any extra repairs.
