5 Telltale Signs That You Need To Change Your Phone

As my iPhone slipped from my hands, it quickly tumbled to the ground with its screen falling first. Before I grabbed it, I was so complacent that only the tempered glass was shattered. The people who witnessed the scene were so shocked and even screamed on my behalf. I kept my cool. I told them that everything is under control as it had a protective layer. Oh, I was wrong! The entire glass screen cracked from the inside out.

Three days passed and I have decided to upgrade my phone. I saw it as an opportunity to finally purchasing a new one after three years. I may get accustomed to the smashed display of the spiderweb-like pattern across the screen, but using this is hazardous. I might be cut by the broken glass or cause the cracks to worsen.

Having a smashed screen is one reason to change your phone. Keep in mind that upgrading can set you back for more than S$1000. So, contemplate on whether it is necessary to buy a new phone or not.

THINGS ARE GETTING SLOW

In this day and age, phones that can multitask reign supreme. If your phone cannot keep up with your taps and swipes, perhaps you should get a new one. It is hard to function when your phone responds to some commands while ignores the rest. Consider looking for a phone that listens to your every touch.

BATTERIES ARE EASY TO DRAIN

How would you feel if your fully charged phone does not last you until lunchtime? You have enough on your plate and rescheduling a recharge can just stretch your tasks.

If you are noticing that your phone is draining at a faster rate after fully charging it, it may be time to replace its battery. Remember that smartphone batteries lose capacity every time you charge it from zero to one-hundred percent. Charging it incorrectly can quicken the process of deterioration.

SHUTTING DOWN IS COMMON

As I was sitting in the lobby, my friend asked me for a favor. She wanted me to call her phone that randomly turned off. To my surprise, it rang while the entire screen transformed to pitch-black. Random shutdowns is worse that running out of battery. If your phone refuses to turn back on until it dictates so, it is time to purchase a new phone.

YOUR STORAGE IS FULL

Despite adding a memory card, your current phone still runs out of storage space. You noticed that small, low-resolution photos can accumulate and hold a chunk of your phone’s memory. What’s more? Your photos look like they were shot in the yesteryear. Stop collecting grainy and low-resolution moments! Start saving your space for crisp and high-resolution memories by getting a new phone.

NEW OPERATING SYSTEM IS NOT AVAILABLE

Take a moment to think about whether you can download the latest apps and operating systems. One of the primary reasons why you must convert to a new phone is to equip yourself with current software updates.

Always update your phone to the latest operating system available for security purposes. Latest updates often fix flaws in older systems that leave your data vulnerable to cyberattacks and hackers.
