The's literally a million ways to care for your Android display (here's 8 tips for protecting your screen to get you started).
Keep it clean. This should be obvious, but foodstuffs, water, dirt and moisture are not friends of your touchscreen.
Protect it. If you're prone to dropping your phone (you know who you are) then invest in a bumper case. If you're more intense with your little ''accidents'' then get some serious Android armor that includes a flip cover for the front of your device specifically.
Solo pocket it. Don't put your keys or change in the same pocket as your phone. Ever.
Stay out of sunlight. Direct sunlight can do a real number on your display (and sunscreen won't help either) so it's best to avoid the sun where your phone is concerned.
You're not Thomas Edison or Nikola Tesla. We all want to invent something, but throwing stray bolts of electricity at your phone is not going to do it any favors. So ditch frayed cords, be wary of leaving your phone connected to other devices (that aren't plugged in with a surge protector) and don't park your phone on top of other electrical devices like television sets or radios. DId you know a television set retains enough electricity to do some damage for two days after it has been unplugged?
Learn from your mistakes. If you're the kind of person who drops their phone at least once a week, try to learn a lesson every time you drop it. Like if fumbling for your keys causes repeated drops you should notice there's a pattern and put your phone in your pocket next time. It certainly beats breaking your phone when you should have known better.
Pls add some more suggestions below!
- Bonus round: my personal habit when I drop my phone is actually to kick it (gently) because I figure a slight skid across the floor is better than the full impact of the fall. My friends think it's stupid but I've never broken a screen yet. Just a toe...
