You should use the Microfiber Cloth. Microfiber clothes can be bought from the electronics stores, camera stores or from online shopping portals too. They are quite cheap.
Below are the tips to clean smartphone touch screen.
STEP 1 – Switch off your smartphone. Remove the battery of the phone. It is advisable to follow this step because we have to use some water to clean the touch screen. In case, you spill access of water on the device, the removal of battery can lead to save your device. In other case, if your phone is switched on and the accidental water fall can lead to destruct its internal power sockets leading to system failure.
STEP 2 – Put your device on some table or level surface with screen facing the upper side and then use the microfiber cloth to clean the screen. It is advised not to put useless pressure on the touch screen during the cleaning process. Touch screen is prone to the finger prints and smudges which can be removed with gentle cleansing.
STEP 3 – Rinse the cloth with little water and then start cleaning across the left to right direction through the screen horizontally. It should be noted that it should be done gently. Choose the left-top edge of the phone to start with and gradually proceed to the lower portion too.

In modern times, the smartphones are serving as more than mobile phones. You can have almost all the computing features done using a smartphone. So, it is like holding a small computer which skids into your pockets and can wake up any time with a screen transition.
So, a smartphone serving as so many applications, also brings up the security issues. A smartphone is now-a-days used for a wide variety of applications from calling to gaming to surfing internet to even do the banking. So, the last one- the banking and such financial applications require the security protection or precautions to be taken.
In this post, I have already posted some best tips for smartphone security. So, you can basically keep your smartphone secure from the attacks of virus, hackers, identity thieves, cyber criminals and other creeps.
Since now-a-days every smartphone maker is equipping in the security concerned applications known as lock screens, you should always use the passwords in your smartphone so that the other unwanted users could not access your valuable personal data including pictures, videos, chats, messages and notes.
Every smartphone (whether it is iPhone, Android or Lumia) is provided with lock screen or password protected features. So, use them for your smartphone security. If you are putting the PIN protected passwords, then choose some relevant passwords not like 1234, 2345 and other such simple combinations. If you are putting some pattern locks, then choose some complicated ones. I recommend choosing the PIN protected passwords.
Just like PC requires antivirus protection to remove the malwares, threats like viruses and spams, our mobile smartphone also require some antivirus program. There are many antivirus programs available in the iTunes Store, Android Play store, Nokia OVI and BlackBerry Apps Store. Antivirus security softwares easily remove the virus which can come through web or from some third party application or files.

If you want to keep your phone’s accounts safe, then never ever save the passwords of any of your accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Gmail or any other website). The saving of the financial passwords are denied strongly by us. If you save the passwords, they can be stolen by cyber criminals and your bank accounts can become vacant due to hackers attack.
Before downloading any application from the Play Store, you should always check if the application has been developed from a trusted developer. Moreover, checking apps permissions is also required. Apple iTunes software is quite trusted store from security concerns.
But open sources like Android Play Store is prone to many spammers and hackers who develop applications with some fake name with back end permissions over your information like contacts, messages, pictures etc. So, you should check the app permissions first before installing it. Example, an application calculator who wants permissions over your contacts can be a malware. So avoid and tackle such apps.
If you receive any email with a suggestion to click on a link, avoid it. Delete the email. Use a specific and trusted email provider like Gmail who has a nice facility to put spam emails in spam folders. But still you should be aware of any kind of miss-happening which can result into the penetration of hackers into your smartphone and thus destroying your smartphone’s security.
Updates are generated by the operating system and applications developers. Newer updates kill the bugs and fix the security issues left in the previous software or apps coding. So, whenever, new update arrives, do update your smartphone. The outdated apps version and outdated operating system are more prone to hacking attacks.
Wireless networks are the most insecure networks. I do not say that you should not use the features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC, rather suggest turning these features off after their use. You can use the Non-Discoverable mode also in the Bluetooth settings.
The cyber criminals have tricks to connect to your smartphone through a wireless network and then accessing all of your personal information without even letting you know.
So, guys the above are the measures or the tips for smartphone security. Use the above tricks which can easily keep your smartphone secure from various ill effects. Hope you liked this post. So, this post appeals for at least Facebook like and Facebook share too.

Yes, you should put off sounds which are unnecessary like the key-tap sounds, warning sounds, incoming calls or messages alert sounds or even notification sounds to save battery life. It can save few percents of your smartphone battery. Thus your phone would be able to work for more few minutes (20 to 30 minutes). A smartphone owner can know the importance of 20-30 minutes. So, do turn off sounds and other alerts of the device.
Similarly, you should also turn off the unnecessary vibrations from the phone. According to me one should turn off vibrations of every possible alert other than calls.
Whenever you feel that your battery of the phone will end soon, you should always adjust the brightness to the lower possible visibility level. Lower the brightness would be, more the smartphone will run. However, it is recommended to keep the brightness level of your smartphone at range level ranging between 33% to 45%.
The higher brightness also causes damage to eyes. It should be noted that at the night time, you can put the brightness level to minimum level. In day time, the automatic brightness adjustment option should e welcomed.
Every smartphone has a feature of screen timeout. It should be as low as possible. Since, the display consumes too much battery power, there should be precautions entertained to save as much as battery when the display is not in use.
So, screen timeout feature can save significant battery power by just switching off the phone’s display as per the time set by the user, I suggest to keep the screen timeout at 10 seconds only. So, the screen will turn off every 10 seconds, if you are not using it.

So, always close the apps which you have used and thus improve smartphone battery life. You can open the RAM manager or Task manager to kill the running apps and to check the amount of RAM being consumed at that particular instant. For the Android users, the Task manager has an option of clear RAM memory to close all the applications.
GPS is very power consuming which runs both the GPS module and the internet data pack (2G or 3G). Browsing and searching on maps are very power consuming. So, it is recommended to immediately turn these features off mobile data pack, Wi-Fi module and GPS feature, whenever you are done with them.
Similarly putting on unnecessary Bluetooth or NFC features can lead to drain battery faster. So, be aware of these wireless features enable and disable functions. Only switch on them when required.

After that, I am going to explain in the below part where saving a phone dropped in water will become easier. Have a look.
STEP 1 – So, guys, as I have told earlier, immediately remove the phone from the water as longer the time the phone lies into water, more, is the chances of its damage. So hurry up and take it out of the water.
STEP 2 – Immediately remove the battery of the phone by opening the rear cover of the device. Don’t stuck in the traditional method of switching off the mobile phone. Just open the rear cover and remove the battery. This is done because longer the battery would be kept into its drawer, the chances of short circuiting of various elements in the mobile phone’s circuitry become more. So, better to remove the battery first.
STEP 3 – Now unpack the phone with the rear cover, with the simple parts which do not require a need of professional tools. Remove the SIM card(s), the memory card and other components of the phone.
STEP 4 – Use a dry cloth or towel to clear the visible water from the mobile phone. It should be noted that water will rinse inside the circuit which you cannot clear using the towel but the water on the exteriors should be cleared first.
STEP 5 – Now hold your phone tightly and vigorously shake it to bring out maximum water you can, from the internals. Do it for few minutes and then try drying your phone using various drying methods.
STEP 6 – Now you have to apply the drying methods as the last saving step to save your phone dropped in water. This step should be followed for at least 3 days and you should keep the phone aside from the reach of other people as if anybody starts the phone by putting battery, there is a risk of full damage. So be patient now. Follow the below methods to save a phone dropped in water.
In this method, you should take a bowl of rice (raw rice). Keep the phone in the rice and then cover the surroundings of the mobile phone with rice keeping a little portion of phone visible. Keep the bowl somewhere in lone place for at least 3 days. Rice will absorb all the moisture of your phone (from internals too). After 3 days, there is 95% chances that phone has been saved from damage if you took those early precautions successfully (picking up phone from water and removing battery immediately).
Use of the hair dryer and blowers are the most common things which people do to evaporate the water or remove the water from phone’s internals, but they themselves damage the phone by heating the water and the vapors deposit more inside into phone. Rather you should use the vacuum pump which pumps out the water inside the circuitry. This method is not as efficient as the above one as sometimes due to use of vacuum static charges are created which further destroy the phone.
Similar to method 1, silica gels are very good absorbers of water. You need to buy some of the packets from market. Take a bowl and then cover your phone with the silica gel packets. Keep the bowl aside for three days. After three days, you can put the battery in and switch it on to check if it is working properly or not.
NOTE: If your phone does not starts, then you should now rush to your manufacturer exchange and ask them for a solution. Water dropping causes the warranty to be void. However, they will charge some money to clean the internal parts by opening them through the professional tools and cleaning them individually using the alcohol.
So, this post is helpful to everybody who owns a phone. I have lost my Apple iPhone due to unawareness of what to do to save phone when dropped in water. That is why I compiled this post. Like and share us on Facebook, Google Plus or any of your favorite social media site.
