6 Easy Ways to Maintain Your Phone

Worried about how to protect your phone? With a little help from us you can maintain and use it for a long time!

1. Remove unwanted apps, videos and images

Games you no longer play, photos or videos that you can move to a hard drive as well as deleting unwanted ones will keep your phone from lagging and heating up and free up a lot of storage. Closing all the apps that you are not currently using will also reduce lag and save you some battery.

2. Powering off

How many days have you kept your phone on? Never thought of shutting it down like a computer or a laptop? It is best practice to shut down your mobile phone at least once a week for some time. This will make your phone run more efficiently.

3. Best phone battery charging practice

Are you charging your phone overnight for a full 100% battery by the morning? Although many suggest that you charge your phone from 0 to 100%, it may not be a good practice. Your phone battery is built to last only a set number of charging cycles. Charging your phone multiple times a day when the battery goes below 50% and unplugging it from the charger just when it is above 90% will help extend your phone's battery life.

4. Keep your phone away while working out

It’s important to keep exercising even while at home, but while exercising, do not keep your phone in your pocket. It is a good practice to not keep your phone very close to you mainly when you know it is not waterproof. The sweat may cause water damage and your phone.

5. Protect your phone from Viruses and Malware 

Avoid downloading apps from unknown sources and clicking links that look suspicious. Your phone's performance may go down dramatically if you are not taking the right precautions. Viruses and malware can eat up your data too along with sending out your phone's information to third parties. Keep checking your data usage and get rid of such apps ASAP once you have done a thorough check.

6. Cloud Storage

Always backup your data from time to time. Save your important photos, documents or other files on the cloud storage which may be provided by your mobile manufacturer for free. Android devices can be backed up to Google Drive too. So take advantage of these free services and be prepared for unforeseen circumstances.

If you have tried all of the above and are still not satisfied, Trade-in your phone and UPGRADE for less or SELL your phone for instant cash or CeX vouchers.

TOP 10 Nintendo Wii All-Time Best Games

10. Kirby's Epic Yarn

One of the most original looking games on the Wii, Kirby’s Epic Yarn is a 2D side-scrolling platformer that looks like it was made with materials from an arts and crafts shop. You play as the titular pink blob, except instead of sucking up your enemies, this time to wrap them up in balls of yarn which can then be lobbed at destructible walls or other baddies. Its cutesy design and gentle difficulty curve make it perfect for younger players, yet seasoned pros will also find a lot to love purely thanks to its undeniable uniqueness 

9. New Super Mario Bros. Wii

While Mario has had incredible 3D outings, he’ll always feel most at home in 2D side-scrolling adventures. New Super Mario Bros. Wii demonstrates that this established formula can still be innovative and enthralling to this day, offering 8 beautifully designed worlds to navigate, either solo or with friends in local co-op. The perfect game for long time fans of Mario or those picking up a controller for the first time.

8. Okami

This beautiful RPG sees you play the role of the sun goddess Amaterasu, a wolf who awakens from an ancient slumber to save the world. Taking heavy inspiration from The Legend Of Zelda, it boasts a gorgeous world that flows from location to location really nicely, making it an absolute joy to explore. With plenty of gameplay variation and an impressive upgrade system for your abilities, there’s a reason the name Okami has gone down in gaming history.

7. Metroid Prime Trilogy

Combining Metroid Prime 1 and 2 plus Metroid Corruption, there’s plenty to enjoy in this collection. Taking the franchise from platformer to first person, it’s chock-full of exciting combat, engaging elemental puzzles and beautiful worlds to explore. With updated textures and lighting, it’s still the best way to experience each game.

6. Mario Kart Wii

The king of the ‘kart’ racers, Mario Kart Wii is without a doubt the best racing game on the console. It has all the classic ‘easy to pick up, difficult to master’ gameplay that the series is known for, but now with the added benefit of motion controls. There are few things more satisfying than controlling your racer with what is effectively a steering wheel, leaning into corners as if you were actually there. Just remember to keep your wrist strap on in case you get Blue Shell-ed, otherwise, controllers might fly.

5. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

The first Zelda to take the series into the modern era, Skyward Sword is nothing short of revolutionary. With a sumptuous art style, a quicker style of play and some of the best motion controls ever designed for the console, it’s easy to lose hours (if not days) in this utterly charming game. With a cinematic story to boot, it’s sure to tug at your heartstrings as much as it keeps your fingers busy [insert innuendo here].

4. Super Smash Bros. Brawl

It’s commonly known that there isn’t a single bad Smash Bros. game, but Brawl might be one of the best of this stellar bunch. With 35 fighters and more than 40 levels from some of the most iconic game franchises, there’s plenty of variety to discover. Despite so much on offer, everything feels nicely balanced, meaning no matter who you play as, everyone will have a fair chance at victory, making it one of the best party games on the Wii.

3. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Often regarded as one of the best Zelda games, and undisputedly one of the greatest launch titles of all time, Twilight Princess is a delightful experience. A much darker game than The Windwaker, it has all the tight gameplay, imaginative world and endless variety that’s now synonymous with the franchise. You can even fire your bow using the Wii Remote and Nunchuck, something that even to this day, never gets old. 

2. Super Paper Mario

Part platformer, part RPG, Super Paper Mario offers something enticingly different from Nintendo. With shifting 2D to 3D perspective allows for engaging puzzles that you won’t find anywhere else on the Wii. Plenty of hilarious dialogue helps to give this game as much charm as interesting gameplay. Plus you get to see Bowser in a wedding tuxedo - what more could you possibly want?

1. Super Mario Galaxy

Not just one of the best Mario games ever, but one of the best platformer games ever, this is an absolute must-play. Making good use of the Wii’s motion controls, you’ll have to traverse Mario through some of the most colourful, imaginative levels found anywhere. It’s the perfect blend of nostalgia and innovation, and despite being well over a decade old, feels as fresh as ever.

Top 10 PlayStation 2 All-Time Best Games

10. Burnout 3: Takedown

With an emphasis on dangerous, fast-paced driving, Burnout 3: Takedown is an arcade-style racing title that rewards players for reckless driving including near misses with traffic and driving in oncoming lanes. The game’s iconic titular feature, the Takedown, involves shunting opposing vehicles until they crash into twisted heaps of metal. It is chaotic, but one of the most ridiculously fun racing titles in gaming. 

9. Final Fantasy X

This incredible entry in the acclaimed series immerses the player into the world of Spira, a mythical land where technology has been shunned. The game follows multiple characters on their quest to defeat a rampaging monster known as Sin, with an engrossing and complex narrative that feels totally gripping throughout. With solid combat and immersive gameplay, this one could just be the series’ finest hour.

8. God of War 2

Following the acclaimed first game, God of War 2 improves in mechanics, content and general gameplay. With improved puzzles and combat and a staggering four times as many bosses, the game is absolutely loaded with content and totally earns its reputation as one of the best games ever released on the PlayStation 2. If you have never swung Athena’s Blades, God of War 2 is a pretty great place to start.

7. Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition

This special edition of the acclaimed threequel features retooled difficulty levels, the addition of mid-mission checkpoints, an additional survival mode and Vergil as a playable character – among other new features. The result is the definitive version of an incredible game with stellar gameplay and a solid combat engine that feels fluid and accessible. This supernatural hack-and-slash is Devil May Cry’s finest hour.

6. Kingdom Hearts 2

The unlikely and unique collaboration between Square Enix and Disney has spawned a truly beloved series, and it was never better than it was with Kingdom Hearts 2. With over 100 Disney characters throughout the game’s many themed worlds, you will embark on an adventure to destroy the monstrous beings trying to take over the tranquil Disney worlds. Packed with stellar visuals and lots of familiar faces and sights for fans of Disney, this one is a must.

5. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

Set in the 1980s, this loving pastiche of the Miami Vice era delivers glamour, power and corruption. As Tommy Vercetti, you will climb to the top of the criminal underworld in the titular Vice City, so expect the franchise’s usual fast cars and violent deeds. An absolute landmark title in the genre with an influence still felt today, Vice City opened the world’s eyes to the true power of Grand Theft Auto…and gaming has not been the same since.

4. Shadow of the Colossus

One of the most acclaimed titles in gaming, Shadow of the Colossus is a remarkable action game that sees players squaring up against a group of towering colossi. Armed with only a magical sword and bow, players must identify the weaknesses of these enormous enemies and figure out how to exploit them – putting Shadow of the Colossus somewhere between action and puzzle gaming. Visually stunning and rewardingly challenging, this one is fantastic.

3. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

Taking place in a living, breathing jungle, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater sees players fighting for survival by not only dispatching an onslaught of ruthless enemy soldiers but also battling the relentless natural elements of the wild. This extraordinary and unique gameplay stands Snake Eater out from the rest of the acclaimed series and certainly earns its reputation as one of the finest stealth games ever made. 

2. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3

This revolutionary entry in the beloved Pro Skater series boasts massive levels packed with people, traffic and interactive elements, giving the in-game environments a much-needed boost after the rather lifeless first games in the series. With smoother animations, significantly improved tricks and intuitive controls, Pro Skater 3 presents a peak in the series that sees players skating in LA, Canada, Tokyo and more.

1. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

“Oh shit, here we go again”. Endlessly memorable and wholly iconic, no matter what the newer generations of gaming might bring, the Grand Theft Auto series will never again hit the highs of San Andreas. This incredible title offered the absolute best the GTA series had to offer and is absolutely packed with things to see and do. It will quite simply never be topped in the open-world genre. It is a masterpiece, in every sense of the word.
