At Tricked Out, one of our main goals is to help everybody become smarter concerning every aspect of their smartphones. We want everybody to understand how to protect their phones, and what to do if a phone is malfunctioning. We want people to know what products exist to help give more ease of use for a phone. And we want to help people know responsible care practices for a phone, both while you are using it and after its life is complete.
We use our smartphones every day, but we almost never think about how they’re made, or what you can do with your old one once you’re ready to buy a new one. In partnership with Revolution, we’ve produced an infographic that shows you what goes into making a smartphone and what you can do with yours when it has reached the end of its life.
We want you to know how to care for your phone properly, both while it is in use (via precautions such as screen protectors and proper chargers,) as well as once you are ready to upgrade to a new phone. If you follow this guide, you are on your way to smartphone responsibility.
