5 Signs That It’s Time To Upgrade Your Phone

It seems every single day a new smartphone hits the market. Each and every week the latest smartphone comes out with the newest features that you just can’t live without any longer. Factor in the fact that you still are walking around playing snake on your Nokia 3310, and it might be time to upgrade to something new.

No, you don’t need a new smartphone every month, but is it time to think about upgrading? If you’re still taking calls on your pager and snapping pics with your old school Motorola RAZR, you should maybe start thinking about upgrading. Check out these tell tale signs that it might be time to get yourself a new cell phone.

5 Signs That It’s Time To Upgrade Your Phone

Your Battery is Just Completely Shot

The longer you have your phone, the worse the battery is going to get. Eventually, the battery will get worn down so bad that you’ll need to replace it if you still want to call your phone a “mobile” phone. If you’ve replaced your battery before, and you’re second battery is about to eat the dust, guess what; it’s time for a new phone.

They don’t make cases for your Phone Anymore

Did you recently determine that your phone needs a makeover, and you went down to the mall to one of those kiosks to find a new case? And when you got down there, did the person working the kiosk laugh at you and tell you that they haven’t made cases for that phone in five years? If so, it’s time to get a new phone.

Your Phone has been Dropped One to Many Times

Are you one of those people that rocks a cell phone with a cracked screen, yet refuses to get a new phone? Have you dropped your phone so many times that there are exposed wires? If you answered yes to either of those two questions, it might be time for a new phone. If you consider yourself a klutz, make sure you get a sturdy case for your new phone; check for Lifeproof discounts when you start shopping for cases to ensure you won’t ever deal with a cracked screen again.

Your Phone Flips Open

Flip phone? Aren’t those things that dinosaurs used? If you still have a flip phone, it might be time to flip it in the trash. Flip phones were all the rage in 2005, and nowadays have been replaced by phones that do a lot more. If you’re still using a flip phone (and it’s somehow still working), you should seriously think about taking it out to pasture.

Your Car was Broken into, but your Phone is Still there

Say you just walked out to your car after a long day at work, and you see that your car is broken into. It’s a terrible feeling, and it leaves a horrible knot in your stomach. That is, until you notice that your phone is still on the front seat! If someone broke into your car and left your phone, it might be time to consider a new one.
