7 Ways To Keep Your Cell Phone’s Screen From Cracking

Let’s face it. No matter how hard you try to not drop you cell phone on the rocky ground, you always manage to drop it. When you pick it up, you hold your breath as you look at the screen. You let out a sigh of relief if there is no crack on the screen, and you groan in annoyance if there is a crack on the screen. I know I’ve dropped my phone way more than I probably should.

Sometimes you can’t help it, though, and it just slips out of your hand. Or maybe you left it on the edge of the table and someone bumped into it. There are any number of reasons as to why your phone fell, but there are some steps you can take to keep your phone’s screen from cracking. Ans I am here to help you with that.

These are some tips on how to keep your cell phone’s screen from cracking.

1. Tempered-Glass Screen Protector

This is really useful because it sits right on the screen of your phone. It is made out of glass, so it might break like your screen would. But it is protecting the screen, so the screen protector will break instead of the screen of your phone. This is something you must have for your phone if you’re clumsy, like me, and you tend to drop your phone a lot.

They also make this for other devices, too. So any screen that you think might break, you could find a screen protector for them. This way to keep your cell phone’s screen from cracking works really well. My sister had a screen protector on her iPad, and she dropped it. The screen protector shattered, but nothing happened to the iPad’s screen at all. I would really recommend you guys look into something like this, even if you don’t drop your phone every other day.

2. Otterbox Defender Case

This case protects the entire phone, not just the back like most cases. These cases also don’t have screen protectors, so you might want the screen protector with this case. There is a case that has a screen protector attached to it, though, so if you want to get an all in one case, you can get that case instead, but this one works really well, too.

This case helps prevent scratches, dents, and cracks on the entire phone. It has rubber around the edges, so it will bounce when it gets dropped, instead of cracking on impact. This is a really good way to keep your cell phone’s screen from cracking because all parts of your phone will be protected from the outside elements. If you are clumsy and you drop your phone a lot, this will be another good thing to get for an extra protection for your phone.

3. Microfiber Cloth

If you have glasses, then you know how annoying scratches are. The scratches can be caused by how you’re cleaning the phone screen, though. If you are using a paper towel, or a Clorox wipe, or even you shirt sleeve, you could be creating more scratches on your screen than using a microfiber cloth. You can find these in most stores by the cash registers.

I know scratches are not the same as a crack, but if there are enough scratches in the same area, it can act like a crack. Scratches can create problems with the touch screen and it can be very difficult to see through the scratches. This microfiber cloth could be a very useful way to keep your cell phone’s screen from cracking. It seems like a very minor thing, but using this to clean your screen could save your phone in the end.

4. Third-Party Charger Cord

This is another really simple fix, but it seems almost stupid in a way. If you find a charger that is cheap and works, you’d want to buy it an use it. That could end in your phone blowing up, though. Your phone could overheat because you use cheaper charging cables, or you could damage the charging ports to both your phone and the block.

You want to get charging cables and blocks that have the same brand as your device. If you have an Apple device, you want the charging cables to say Apple. If you have Samsung, you should have charging things that say Samsung. If you use the wrong cords, you could start to overheat the device, and overheating results in weaker glass. You could very easily crack the screen of your device because you used the wrong charger.

5. Phone Skins

These can protect your entire phone from getting scratches all over it. As I said earlier, the scratches can be just as irritating as cracks are. This is a rubber case that goes around your phone, protecting it from the outside world. It will not protect your phone from denting if you drop it, but it will stop the cracks and scratches from rocks hitting your screen.

This will keep your cell phone’s screen from cracking because the rubber goes all the way around the case. It is transparent, so you can see the screen through it. You can still use the touch screen function through the skin, too, so everything on your phone can still be used while it is protected by this phone skin. I would recommend you get this is you don’t want to get a real phone case to protect your phone from the outside world.

6. Getta Grip Case

If you like taking a lot of selfies, and you always have your phone an arm’s length away from your body, this is a really good idea to get. The phone case has an elastic grip on the back. You can put your hand through the elastic and hold onto the phone that way. This will stop your phone from falling out of your hand when taking a picture.

This is a really good way to keep your cell phone’s screen from cracking as it hits the ground. You’ll be able to catch the phone by grabbing the handle on the back of the phone. It would be a nice way to protect the phone from hitting the ground and from getting cracks on the screen. I would definitely recommend you get this case because it would work to protect your phone from all of the outdoor elements, too.

7. Waterproof Cell Phone Bag

Getting water on your screen could be part of the reason your phone screen is cracking. This is entirely waterproof, so you can get it wet and your phone won’t get ruined from the water. When water gets into the phone, it can cause cracks on the screen. It can also cause the phone to overheat, which will make the screen separate from the phone.

This would be a really useful way to keep your cell phone’s screen from cracking, especially with the waterproof case. You can swim in a pool or the ocean with your phone in this, but you can’t go that far down because it won’t protect the phone that far down. It is really nice and could do a lot for your phone, like protecting the screen from getting filled with water or cracked because of it. I would recommend this if you do a lot of swimming.

I hope these tips to keep your cell phone’s screen from cracking help you out. If there are more tips I forgot to include, feel free to leave them in the comments down below.
