As useful as a smartphone can be, it is also wise to consider the damages and harm it can cause one. So in this article, I will be sharing with you some common injuries your phone can cause you.
Don't Text While Driving
The phone has been a source of distraction to some people that they text and call while driving. It is a no-no when it comes to using your mobile device on the road as it endangers your life and that of the people around you. So when you go out today, abstain from such dangerous practice.
Keep Your Head Up
Do not use your phone while walking down the road as you could crash into someone else, hit a wall or even do more harm to yourself or other people around you.
Use Your Phone's Official Charger
Modern smartphones and chargers now come with different safety features and you are likely to overheat your phone, spoil your charging port or start a fire at your wall socket if you use a different charger for your device. However, if your charger is damaged and you need to get another one, do thorough research and make sure the charger you are buying has the same function as the original one.
Reduce Eye Strain
Just like a computer, your smartphone can cause problems with eye strain and associated issues like headaches. Staring at a bright screen for an extended period is not recommended and experts say the best way to protect your eye is to take regular breaks from your screen.
Turn The Volume Down
Another dangerous thing to do with your smartphone turns the volume up. This makes you less aware of the things around you like speeding cars, warning shouts, ringing alarms and other sounds that could be drowned out by whatever you are listening to. The obvious fix(solution) is reducing the volume of what you are listening to.
