3 Tips for Preventing a Cracked Phone Screen, 14, Maryland

From accidentally dropping a smartphone to running it over with a car, cracking the screen is extremely common. In addition to having to get unexpected phone screen repairs, using your device can be inconvenient and frustrating when the glass is broken. Here’s what you need to know to avoid this situation. 

How to Protect Your Smartphone Screen 

1. Buy a Good Case

When picking a case for your phone, consider an option that will provide adequate protection against cracks. Make sure there’s proper screen clearance, which means that if the phone falls, the screen will have plenty of space from the surface it hits. This prevents the glass from making contact with the ground even if the device lands face-down. Also, choose a case that’s durable but not too heavy so that it’s comfortable to walk around with your smartphone in your pocket. 

2. Use a Screen Protector

Choose one with a glass-layer feeling; this will ensure that it’s strong enough to protect the screen. If you want the toughest option, go with 9H hardness tempered glass.

3. Watch for Extreme Temperatures

In addition to causing cracks, high or low temperatures can damage the battery and other internal components. Never leave your phone in a hot car, and if you’re sitting on the beach or by the pool, leave it in a shady spot with plenty of airflow. Ideally, it should never be in direct sunlight. Finally, don’t bring your smartphone into a sauna or steam room, even for a few minutes.
