Touchscreen phones can be very expensive to repair, if the screen shutters/breaks or shuts down. Here are some tips to help it last longer.

Don’t use everything to use the screen:

Except your fingers or a stylus, don’t use any other stuff to manipulate your touch screen based device.

Don’t treat it like older electronics: 

Talking about gadgets and not using sharper objects to use the panel, it is also recommended to treat your touch screen based smartphone or tablet with a tad bit care. Modern day smartphones are not like those age old radio sets which needed a tap on the back to start working.

No sunlight please: 

Sunlight doesn’t damage your smartphone in an instance; however, it is wise to not expose your smartphone or tablet to direct sunlight for long as it would damage the display panel.

Electric charges: 

Sudden electricity between two connected devices may cause disruption in the function of electronics. When your smartphone is placed near a electric device conducting electricity, it may result in sudden surge of electrostatic discharges harming the touchscreen.

Keeping device on for long: 

Another tip to your protect touch screen panel is not leave it idle for extended periods. When you leave your gadget on without using it, it may lead to screen burn-in. Try to set a lock screen timeout to turn the device off after a certain few specified minutes of being idle.

Clean carefully:

If you wear specs, use that cloth to clean the display of your smartphones. Any microfiber soft cloth is ideal for cleaning and maintaining touchscreen. Cleaning is also very similar to how we clean our spectacles: use a moist cloth or simply use your breathe and wipe it off with the cloth. It does the best without getting any water inside the gadget.

Screen protectors: 

Lastly, a very easy tip to save and protect touch screen based gadgets is to invest in a screen protector. Any low-cost sleeve, padded bag or protector will help you secure your display panel from any drops, scratches-inside-a-bag and other such scenarios.
