Physical Care: Protect Your Investment

When it comes to physical care, investing in protective accessories for your phone is essential. A high-quality tempered glass screen protector protects your screen from scratches and minor impacts. In addition, a shockproof case can provide an extra layer of protection against accidental drops, reducing the risk of internal damage.

Regular cleaning is also essential. A microfiber cloth is ideal for wiping down your screen without causing scratches. At the same time, a soft-bristled brush can gently clean out the charging port and headphone jack, preventing dust and debris from affecting your phone's functionality.

Storage Management: Keep Your Phone Snappy

Effective management of phone storage is critical to extending its lifespan. Clear the cache regularly via Settings > Storage > Cached Data for smoother device performance—Uninstall unused apps to free up space. Consider using cloud storage like Google Drive or iCloud to store files and free up more space.
