How to Extend the Life of Your Smartphone

Updated: Feb 21, 2021

Things don't last as they used to and that is true in a sense. In our digital world, most computers, smartphones, and tablets usually don't last longer than a couple of years. When you have problems that occur with your smartphone, you're probably tempted to purchase a new one than to get it repaired. Times are changing and more and more people stopping the trend of getting new smartphones every two years and holding on to their devices for three years or longer. This is understandable with the average price of an Apple or Android smartphone starting at $1,000. If you take the right steps, you can make your smartphone last a long time. If you want to save some money on smartphone purchases and extend the life of your device, check out the following tips.

1. Reset your Smartphone Back to Factory Defaults. If you start to experience problems with your Apple and Android smartphones, reset it. Doing this will remove any virus, glitches, and other odd things that could be occurring with your devices and make it work as if you just took your phone out of the box.
