Cracked screen repairs tips

Smashed screens come in many different levels of severity and you could be dealing with anything from a completely shattered display and a non-working phone, to a small crack in one corner of the screen and a device that still works fine. Not all of these solutions are applicable to every scenario but we’ll try and guide you as best we can. The name of the game here is, “hold out until I’m eligible for an upgrade.” If you want to keep using the cracked phone, and don’t want to risk losing glass or slicing up your fingers, cover the screen with a layer of packing tape.

Increased lifespan for you Huawei or other mobile phone brands? The way you charge your phone can have a significant impact on the life of its battery. Increasingly, phone batteries aren’t removable, meaning it can be impossible or at least very difficult to replace them if they stop working. Let’s bust a myth about phone batteries right away – ‘battery memory’, the idea that you need to drain your battery completely before re-charging it, does not apply to phones (nor tablets and laptops). This applies only to nickel-based batteries. Phones use lithium-ion batteries, which perform best when they are topped off with a charge as much as possible. In fact, letting your phone spend too much time below 50% charge can shorten its lifespan. We recommend either plugging it in or turning it off before it hits 40% and charging it up to 80% or higher before removing it.
