4 Tips To Protect Your Smartphone From Scratches

Smartphones and tablets have big, gorgeous, touch-sensitive displays. The touchscreen is one of the most essential parts because it is the only way by which you can manipulate and navigate your smartphone.

While your touchscreen may look great the moment it came out of the box, it is easily susceptible to both major and minor damage and is very expensive to replace. You can shatter your smartphone’s touchscreen with just one drop, but that rarely happens. A major threat, though, are small scratches. And it’s not just your screen that gets these pesky scrapes. Your smartphone’s body can suffer from them, too!

So how do you protect your device from bothersome grazes? Read on to learn more.


Get a screen protector.

This seems like the most obvious choice and it makes sense — a screen protector covers your smartphone’s touchscreen and keeps it immaculate. A screen protector needs to have high-definition clarity and nanoshock impact features for maximum durability and for your peace of mind.


Replace your screen protector every 2 years or once it gets damaged.

It is imperative that you replace your screen protector immediately after it suffers from any form of damage. Doing so will lessen the chances of your touchscreen from suffering the same fate.


Use a sturdy case.

While there are a lot of fun and quirky cases out there, they don’t really do much to protect your smartphone from getting cracks or scratches. Your smartphone case should be made of military-grade ArmorTek material. ArmorTek cases cost a tad more than plastic ones, but they are well worth the investment.


Never put your smartphone inside your pocket.

Or, at least make sure it’s safe inside a pouch or that you don’t keep your keys, coins, or wallet in the same pocket. Otherwise, your smartphone is going to get all beaten up and you may not even be aware of it. Carry a purse or bag just to make sure.


And there you have it — 4 simple tips that keep your smartphone just as perfect as the day you got it. Just remember that there is never a one-size-fits-all solution that will keep your smartphone scratch-free, which is why it’s always best to do your part by looking into every aspect of smartphone protection that is relevant to you and your needs.
