Recently bought a new phone? Here’s a low-down on how to get the most out of your smartphone.
Protect Your Phone
The first thing you want to do is protect your phone from any physical damage and that’s possible with a phone cover. How about getting a little creative and designing your own phone cover? This may be a bit expensive than the usual phone covers but remember, your choice says a lot about your personality. You could check out for some customised covers at Amazon.in, Postergully.com and Coveritup.com to name a few.
Get a Screen Protector
The phone’s display is the most expensive part of the phone, which is not covered in the manufacturer’s warranty. If your screen cracks, you’ll have to pay a hefty amount on getting the screen replaced. Which is why it’s important to get a tempered glass or a scratch guard for maximum protection.
Personalise Your Phone
Begin with changing the wallpaper, grouping apps into folders and exploring some hidden options, right from motion and gesture controls to call blocking. Spend some time understanding your new smartphone on YouTube or blogs. Also, set notifications and privacy setting for apps and do not forget to organise your phone’s home screen.
Get Interesting Apps
Since it’s a new phone, you may want to stock up on some cool apps. When we say cool, we mean fitness apps, travel, antivirus, image-editing, news and a productivity app, apart from the popular social media apps. Also, keep yourself updated with the latest apps by bookmarking sites like cnet.com, engadget.com, techcrunch.com and mashable.com to name a few.
Check For Updates
There are chances that your phone’s delivery may be delayed and by the time it reaches you, there could be an update waiting. So go to your settings menu and get the latest update to save your phone from a hardware failure. Also, don’t forget to connect to a wireless network when you’re updating your phone or it’ll only leave a big dent in your mobile data.
After all of this, we’re sure you would want your phone to last at least two years. That’s possible with an extended warranty plan. OnsiteGo offers the 1 Year Extended Warranty plan for smartphones. The good thing is the plan covers all the defects that are covered in a standard manufacturer’s warranty for up to 12 months. So with an extended warranty plan, you can extend your phone’s life by an additional year.
