“Millennials… [are] mobile natives, having come of age when landlines were well on their way out and payphones had gone the way of dinosaurs. Because of their native fluency, Millennials recognize mobile phones can do a whole lot more than make calls, enable texting between friends or tweeting.” – Chelsea Clinton
Have you just purchased a new Google Pixel, or are you considering purchasing the latest Google Pixel Phone? Rather, maybe we should ask whether you are considering buying a new mobile device and you have no idea what to buy?
As Chelsea Clinton’s quote above states: a mobile device is far more than a phone to text your friends on or to tweet whatever your current mood dictates. In a nutshell, it has become and continues to function as a serious business tool. Ergo, in many instances, business people can go about their daily jobs via their mobile devices.
What is the Google Pixel?
According to Wikipedia, the “Pixel and Pixel XL are Android smartphones designed, developed and marketed by Google. They were announced during a press event on October 4, 2016, and serve as the first smartphones in the Google Pixel hardware line.”
In other words, in 2016 Google entered the Smartphone marketplace. Most reviews on the phone state that it is a relatively decent phone that is well worth purchasing. It is worth mentioning that the Pixel was developed in order to showcase Google’s latest version of Android – Android 7.1 Nougat.
Necessary accessories to protect your new phone
For this article, let us assume you have taken delivery of the latest Pixel. There is no doubt that smartphones are susceptible to damage when dropped, or when liquids or a hard item is dropped on the phone itself. Therefore, the question that begs is how to protect your phone in the event of an accident.
By way of answering this question, here are some tips to help you protect your phone:
Acquire a smartphone case
I believe that it is important to purchase a specialist mobile device that is specifically designed to protect your phone from any possible damage. In my experience, it does not help buying a generic case that fits your phone size. Mobile phone case designers who design and manufacture cases, especially for your Google Pixel, take the phone’s exact specifications into account when designing the case. The downside is that you might pay a bit more for such a case; however, it is well worth the expense.
Purchase a screen protector
There is nothing worse than trying to peer through a scratched, cracked screen to decipher what content is on your phone. Therefore, to reduce the damage to your screen, it’s a good idea to buy a quality screen protector. It’s also important to apply the screen protector to your phone’s screen according to the manufacturer’s instructions; otherwise, the screen protector will not do its job properly.
Smartphones or Mobile Devices are now considered serious business tools that are useful for attending to your business when you are out of the office. Therefore, I believe that it is worthwhile ensuring that you look after your phone to prolong its life and usefulness.
