The big game is this weekend! On Sunday, February 1st the Seattle Seahawks take on the New England Patriots and it is a day many football fans dream about all year long. With Superbowl Sunday also comes large amount of delicious food, lots of drinks, fun times with friends and family, and one more thing… a cracked phone. That’s right. It is a frightening time for your phone! Whether you have an iPhone 6, Galaxy S 5, HTC One, Nokia Lumia, etc. While Mission:Repair is here for you if anything happens to your device, we have also come up with a few tips on how to prevent any accidents during the game.
1. Keep your phone away from beverages. It is so easy for a drink to get knocked over in a intense football game. While everyone is huddled around the TV sharing a couch, beverages are bound to get knocked over so play it safe and steer clear of laying your phone down by full cups.
2. Keep your phone away from food. This may sound weird but you’d be surprised. If you’re checking Facebook on your phone over a plate of food, there is a chance your device could drop into cheese dip, baked beans, etc. It’s safest to keep it away from the delicious food.
3. Don’t hold your phone in your hand during the game. Sounds simple right? It may be harder than you think. During the game, be sure to leave your phone in your purse or pocket. This will prevent it from being spiked when celebrating a touchdown.
4. Protect the phone. If you don’t already have a case or screen protector on your device – now may be a good time to purchase one. While cases can’t completely prevent your device from being cracked or damaged – it can help reduce the chances of your phone resulting in a cracked screen.
These tips may be a bit extreme and accidents are bound to happen during an exciting event like the Super Bowl.
