Improving the battery life
Don’t you just hate it when you’re out with your friend, you go to take a picture together and you find your phone is out of battery? Our little tips and tricks will help to keep your battery lasting all day. Click here for phones with the best battery life.
- Adjust the brightness – indoor locations don’t need as much light from your phone as rooms are at a specific lighting level.
- Keep your phone away from high temperatures – if you’re exposed to high temperatures frequently, e.g. holidays, put your phone in the shade and not out in the sun.
- Turn location services off – Even if you are not using an app with a GPS, when the setting is on, it still requires energy.
Phone cases & covers
Our phones are advanced pieces of technology that we would find it hard to live without, but they can be fragile and without a durable case this can call for scuffed sides and smashed screens. By choosing a tough case, this gives extra protection for your phone compared to what a standard case could. Shop today.
Clean on a regular basis
Dust can accumulate in small parts of our devices, such as the headphone jack and charging port. If dust does begin to build up this can heat your phone up and can lead to important components not functioning properly and failing. See: Device Repairs.
To keep the dust from building up, use a small dry brush and very gently remove dust from port areas. This should be done every few weeks.
