Cell Phone Skins: Preventing Top 5 Phone Killers

Everyone has that one embarrassing phone-killing story to tell, right? Maybe you jumped in the pool with all your clothes on and promptly drowned your iPhone. Maybe you took your Android onto that epic roller coaster ride only to watch it hurtle to the ground on the first upside-down loop. Maybe you soaked your BlackBerry on a water ride, or maybe you dropped it in your cup of coffee.

We kill our phones. It happens to the best of us. But with a little common sense, your phone will survive long enough to reach old age—or at least long enough to make it until your next phone upgrade. Save your phone from an untimely demise by avoiding these five common phone-killing mistakes:

Keeping Your Phone in Your Back Pocket

Don't do this because one, you will forget your phone is in there; two, you will sit down; and three, you will smash your phone.

Keep your phone in your inner jacket pocket, in your front pocket, in your purse, in a man-bag, wherever else is convenient —just don't put it in a place where you can crush it with an unassuming body part. After all – glass shards from your iPhone screen can hurt. A clear screen protector can help reduce the cracking or at least help prevent glass from puncturing your jeans and cutting you.

Leaving it on the Bathroom Counter

First of all, why do you need to keep your phone in the bathroom in the first place? Make one wrong move, and you can knock your phone into the sink, the toilet, or the tub. Those aren't good odds, sports fans.

If you can't bear to be without your phone, do yourself a favor and put it out of harm's way. A counter is hip-level and flat, meaning there's nothing to stop your phone from taking a bath if you accidentally hit it. Instead, choose an out-of-the-way shelf or surface as far away from water as possible.

Cleaning the Screen with Windex

Ammonia and electronics don't mix, kids. Guess what contains plenty of ammonia? Windex. So save the Windex for the windows and clean your screens with a glass-cleaning cloth instead – or protect your device with a cell phone skin and then easily wipe away and dirt and live worry-free without blemishes.

Exposing Your Phone in Direct Sunlight

Don't leave your phone in the hot car (or any other steady beam of hot sunlight). Not only will it harm your battery, but it will harm your touchscreen as well.

Not Using Phone Covers

This is the most obvious one on the list. iPhone skins, Droid Skins, Blackberry Skins and other cell phone screen protectors for all of your mobile devices protect from smudges, dirt, dust, and scratches.

It's as simple as this: you can invest in a quality, affordable iPhone Screen Protector or you can invest in a costly new phone.
