Touchscreen smartphones are built to resist scratches and are sturdy enough to beat standard wear. But these large screens are also susceptible to damage. If you have an Android phone or tablet and wish to protect your android screen, here are some neat tips for you.
1. Mind the medium of touch
It is important that you use the right medium to manipulate the screen. Use your fingers and stylus only. While some devices may allow use of pencils on touch screens, most android screens should not be subjected to other media.
2. Avoid the ‘technical tap’
You do not need to tap the phone when it stops working. The method is as outdate as the gadgets that needed it. Smartphone and android screens do not need taps to function. Consult a repair specialist instead.
3. No excess sunlight
While sunlight does not burn the screen in an instant, you should not expose your screen to extended sunlight. It may damage the sensitivity of the screen.
4. Electrically charged objects
The sudden flow of electricity between two devices may disrupt operations for a while or longer. Do not place the smartphone near an electrically charged devices. A sudden upsurge in electrostatic charge can be detrimental to the android screen.
5. Steady operation
This is a rather underused tip. You should not leave the phone idle for long periods. When the gadget stays idle, the screen may be subject to internal burn-in. A lock-screen timeout that sets the screen on after a period of idleness could be of help.
6. Careful cleaning
Do not ever use detergent to clean the android screen. Most smartphone screens are not compatible with everyday soap solutions either. Use a spectacle cleaning cloth to clean the screen gently. If at all you need to use a solution, use ones that are custom built for smartphone screens.
7. Screen protectors
Most people are aware of the efficacy and necessity of screen protectors. They are available for a fraction of the cost of a new android screen and you should be smart enough to spend early on. While screen protectors are available in a variety of qualities, the tempered glass protectors are best crack resistors.
8. Phone covers
The use of a good cover can prove vital for the smartphone. If you drop the phone often, use covers that shield both faces of the phone. These covers are generally known as flip covers and offer superior protection to android screens.
