When you are buying a new phone, there is plenty to consider. No matter what phone you actually end up with, you need to make sure that you are making the most of it. A smartphone, after all, can be a huge investment, and it is worth getting as much out of it as possible. But knowing how to do this is another matter altogether. In this article, we are going to discuss some of the ways that you can make the most of your new phone. Primarily, we will be focusing on android phones, but a lot of this will apply to all phones to some degree. Without further ado, let’s take a look at what you should be doing with your new smartphone.
Get A Warranty
Smartphones are expensive. Sometimes, people fail to realise how expensive they are because they pay for them over a long period of time. But even buying a phone this way can be surprisingly expensive. If you pay monthly for your phone, you might find that it takes the whole twelve months to pay it off. Sometimes, it will even take much longer. One thing that you want to be careful of with your new phone is that you have some kind of back-up if anything happens to it. You might be able to buy insurance for it, but this can be surprisingly expensive too. A much better option might be to buy a warranty with your new phone. When you buy the phone itself, it might be a good idea to do a warranty check straight away. If you are lucky, there might be one already for that phone. This could save you a huge amount of hassle in the long run.
Lock It Securely
If you are like most people, your phone contains quite a lot of personal information. This is information which you probably find you don’t want many people knowing or finding. What’s more, it is surprising what kind of damage someone could do with your phone if they were so inclined. With that in mind, you might want to think about finding a decent lock for your new phone. No matter what, locking it securely is likely to help protect you against a number of unwanted and unwarranted threats. Just make sure that the lock you choose is a secure one. You might find that the drawing lock option is the better one, or perhaps even voice recognition if your device allows it.
Use Your Voice
Speaking of voice locks, there are other ways of using your voice which can make your phone much more useful. These days, you can search using your voice and even make calls and send texts this way. While this is not always the ideal solution to a given tech problem, a lot of the time it actually turns out to be ideal. If you are keen on feeling as though you are in a sci-fi futuristic film, then this could be a great option for you.
