Smart Phone Cleaning Tips
The very first thing you should do is purchase a T-Mobile G2X screen protector. Screen protectors are thin pieces of adhesive plastic film that lay over a mobile phone’s screen to keep it from getting scratched. There is nothing worse to happen to your phone than having the screen heavily damaged. A scratch on the phone is one of the easiest ways to ruin your phone, as the screen is where users primarily focus on. With a screen as nice as the G2X, any scratch or dings on its screen are completely obvious and detract from its allure and usability. Screen protectors are one of the cheapest T-Mobile G2X accessories you can get, but pay off tremendously in terms of smart phone protection.
After installing a screen protector, your next step should be to purchase a T-Mobile G2X case. The case will protect the body of the phone. These cases come in all types of shapes, sizes, colors and styles. There are some cases that are designed to permanently stay on the phone so that it remains protected at all times. Other cases are designed more like a holster, where you place the phone when it is not in use. These cases can be threaded onto a belt, clipped onto a belt loop, or even hung around your neck by a strap. This type of case typically has some sort of strap that closes around the case with a metal snap or a magnet.
Even when using screen protectors and cases, your G2X is bound to get dirty through normal use. There are things like food particles, oils, dirt and dust that quickly make the mobile phone look old and dirty. This can easily be cleaned by using a cotton ball or cleaning cloth. Just dab a bit of rubbing alcohol onto the cloth or swab and gently clean the entire case. Do not use alcohol on the screen, however, as alcohol can easily damage the screen. When alcohol is not available, even a small amount of water will do. Be sure to clean all components, include the large sides of the casing, the keypad, the small side the track pads, and other small buttons.
If you have a small, soft toothbrush, you can use that to clean the speaker port, charger port and earpiece area. Place a bit of alcohol on the bristles and gently brush the toothbrush around these areas. Be extremely gentle as it is very easy to ruin these parts if you brush too hard. Window cleaner can be used to clean the screen of this smart phone.
Even though this device has many great features, if it is not properly taken care of you will surely be spending extra money on new accessories. If you follow the previously mentioned tips you will have a very good looking and functioning device.
