4 Things to do When You Get a New Phone

Getting a new smartphone is always an exciting experience. Whether it’s your first phone, or if you’re replacing an old one, using a new phone is like getting a new toy, but for adults.

We know you’re excited to try out your new phone, but there are things you should do before you download apps into your phone and start using. Here’s our checklist of things you should do when you get yourself a new smartphone:

Apply a screen protector

The screen of a smartphone is one of the most fragile parts of the device. They are also usually the most expensive. They can crack if you drop them from too much of a height and if you’re not careful, you’ll end up with scratches on your screen.

They are different types of screen protectors you can buy, such as tempered glass and PET plastic. It all depends on how much protection you want to offer to your phone.
