6 tips to make your refurbished phone last as long as possible

There’s no hiding from the fact that phones are necessary and expensive! We all need them and we all hate to pay for them. That’s why it’s best to keep your cell phone in great condition for as long as possible.


Here’s how:


Keep your refurbished phone clean

A build up of dust can impact your phones performance. We suggest using a lint-free cloth dampened with soap and water.

Pay attention to storage

If you want your phone to perform at its best, you’ll need to manage your storage from the beginning. Consider buying extra storage from iCloud or Google Storage. And to keep even more space, you can regularly delete apps, photos, videos, and downloaded files that you don't use anymore.

Don’t skip app updates; they're important! 

In order to keep your phone running as fast and as problem-free as possible, it's important to update the operating system and third-party apps as they're released.

Avoid overcharging

Did you know that you can damage your phones battery and lifespan by overcharging it? Avoid charging your refurbished phone overnight and only charge it when it needs to be charged.

Protect your phone

Protect the screen

  • Along with the battery, a phone screen is the component most likely to fail. Be sure to always have a good screen protector on your refurbished phone.

Invest in a good phone case

  • Investing in a good phone case increases your phones longevity in so many ways. You can avoid hefty repair costs and preserve your phone for as long as possible.

Avoid extreme temperatures

  • Extreme temperatures can damage your phone's battery and other components. Avoid exposing your phone to extreme heat or cold.

  • Delete unused apps

Deleting apps can help revive your phone’s battery and improve your storage. Routinely deleting apps you don't use from your phone will save storage space and prevent apps from running in the background.


The bottom line is that you don’t have to be tech-savvy to improve the longevity of your phone. You just need the right tools. You can’t make your phone last forever but you can keep your cell phone in great condition with a few easy steps.
