3. Keep Your Phone Safely
Leaving your phone on any surface is going to be the major cause for screen damage. Ensure you keep your phone in a safe place to reduce the risk of damaging it. Keep it away when drinking to avoid spilling liquid on it. Also, avoid keeping it on the floor where it will be vulnerable to being stepped on. Just make sure your devise is not in harm’s way.
4. Full Cover Cases
