Nine (9) Common Things People Do That Can Actually Damage Their Smartphones (Find Out)

Knowledge they say is power and
those who don’t know will be doing something wrong thinking that they are
getting it right. There are lots of things that people do which they don’t know
they can damage their smart phones. I have revealed nine of these things in
this post. Read more to learn more.

Check out nine ways that you
may be accidentally damaging your smart phone, and figure out a few ways to
stop the bumps and bruises before they result in a broken phone.
1) Installing Malware
One of the biggest
misconceptions about smartphones is that you don’t have to worry about security
with them nearly as much as you do with your computer. But that’s a myth, and
downloading apps at random without doing your research is a great way to end up
with malware on your device, as published by
Avoid downloading apps from
third-party stores or CLICKING download links on suspicious websites, even if
they show the icon and name of an app you think you can trust.
2) Leaving Your Phone Plugged-In
It may not really be a problem
to leave your phone plugged-in for a couple of hours once it is charged
completely, since devices can limit the power being transferred to the battery
once that battery is fully charged.
But there is no benefit to
continue to charge your phone after the battery reaches 100 per cent; leaving
the device plugged-in for long periods of time can generate excess heat and
damage your phone.
Another great way to damage
your phone as you charge it is leaving the device plugged-in when it is tucked
under your pillow or even just sitting on top of your mattress. A smartphone
heats up as it is charging, and if you don’t place it somewhere where that heat
can dissipate, it can overheat.
3) Allowing Your Phone To
Speaking of overheating, your
phone doesn’t have to be plugged in for the device to get too hot. It is
relatively easy for your phone to overheat in strong sunlight.
And in some cases, a phone can
get hot enough to shut down when left in direct sunlight, even in an
air-conditioned room. The problem there is that excessive heat can damage the
So, shielding your phone from
the sun, turning it off if you have to leave it in a hot car, and otherwise
keeping your device at a comfortable temperature is a good idea to prevent
accidental damage.
4) Dropping Your Phone, Even If
It’s In A Case
A case won’t prevent you from
dropping your phone (or knocking it off your desk or counter), and a drop can
still damage your phone. Even if you don’t immediately see a shattered screen
or a dented corner, it’s still possible that a fall has weakened your phone’s
casing or damaged something inside the device. If you routinely drop your
phone, the repeated impacts may be doing more damage than you think.
5) Exposing Your Phone To
Plenty of smartphones aren’t
made to stand up to use in a rainstorm, and you should probably prevent yours
from getting splashed at the pool.
But even encounters that seem
innocuous can do damage to your phone, like setting it down on top of a wet
bath towel. Your phone may incur damage when you use it with wet hands in the
bathtub — even if you manage to avoid dropping it into the water.
6) Switching Your Phone On 24/7
Just like you turn your
computer off when you aren’t using it, it is a good idea to shut your phone
down at least occasionally to give it a rest. Leaving your phone on all the
time burns through the life expectancy of its components more quickly than you
would by shutting it off occasionally.
Regularly shutting down your
device, or even simply rebooting it, will help ensure that caches are cleared
and that everything is running smoothly.
7) Leaving Your Phone On The Couch
(Or Keeping It In Your Pocket)
Leaving your smartphone on the
couch can be a bad idea. When you’re watching a game or just engrossed in a
movie, it is easy to forget that your phone is sitting right next to you, just
waiting to be dropped on the floor when you jump up (either for a popcorn break
or to celebrate a goal). Even accidentally sitting on your phone can damage it.
The same argument could be made
to advocate against keeping your phone in your pocket. If you repeatedly sit on
your phone or routinely find it falling out of your pocket and clattering to
the ground, then you should probably reconsider your habits.
8) Filling Up Your Phone’s
Keeping your phone packed full
of apps and data will slow it down. And of course, if the memory is full, you
won’t have any room to download a new app or store a new video.
Deleting apps, browser data,
and unused media can all help keep your phone performing well; avoiding the
temptation to overload the memory will save you the frustration of the constant
struggle for space.
9) Being Careless About
Plugging Your Phone In To The Charger
Being careless about plugging
your phone into its charger is a great way to end up with a damaged port. Being
rough or careless when you’re plugging your phone in is always a bad idea,
since tiny ports are easy to ruin and major force is never necessary. From a
scratched phone to a broken port, the outcome when you force the cable is never
I am pretty sure that these

good condition, which is also to your own benefit, as you will worry less and
spend less as you enjoy your mobile device for an appreciable long period of
