#2 Use a good quality case

In this fast paced and multitasking life, it is possible that you may time and again drop the phone and damage it. To clearly avoid this sort of event it is strongly advised that you use a phone case. This will ensure maximum physical protection to your handset. It is not necessary that you opt for an expensive branded case, even a good quality non branded one will suffice and give you the same kind of protection to your handset.

 

#3 Self Protect

When you place the phone in your pocket make sure that you do not keep coins and or any other pointed type of stuff in the same pocket because this results in the display screen being scratched or damaged. Also ensure that you avoid placing your phone in the rear pocket of your tight jeans because there is probability that your phone might bend or just snap when you attempt to sit. Wherever you place your handset, just keep it out of reach of the toddlers or unruly kids in your home, it is likely that they may try to get hold of your handset and clumsily drop it and thus damage it.

 

If you do not have a heart to refuse your kids your personal phones, please buy them some old working phones loaded with games and cartoons to avoid regretting later.
