Tips for protecting your Google Pixel 7a

If there’s one device that gets more use than any other, it’s probably your smartphone. Between trips to the grocery store, road trips, and other day-to-day activities, your phone is on the go with you a lot, which means there are plenty of opportunities for it to get damaged. In order to get your money’s worth out of your smartphone purchase, it’s important to take steps to protect it. Here are some helpful tips for protecting your Google Pixel 7a:

Purchase a glass screen protector

One of the best ways to protect your Google Pixel 7a is by installing a glass screen protector. Whether you’re on the go or frequently use it at home, it’s only a matter of time before you drop your phone. Luckily, a glass screen protector can help protect your phone by absorbing the shock from any impact, such as a fall or drop, so you can avoid paying for an expensive screen repair or replacement.

Try a smartphone wrap

If you’d like to protect your phone without purchasing a bulky case, a smartphone wrap is a great alternative to keep your device free from scratches. However, it’s important to keep in mind that a smartphone wrap will not protect your phone in the event of a fall, so it might still be worth purchasing a protective case.

Invest in a waterproof case

Water is another important type of damage to protect your Google Pixel 7a against. Liquid damage such as spills, unknowingly setting it on a wet surface, or dropping it in water, can cause lasting problems for your phone.

Although the Google Pixel 7a is water-resistant (IP67 rating), it isn't as water-resistant as many other smartphones, so it’s important to protect it from water damage. Fortunately, installing a protective waterproof case is a helpful way to ensure that your Google Pixel 7a is protected anytime it comes into contact with water or other liquids.

Be cautious

Even the best protective gear can’t always prevent accidents, so it’s important to be careful with how you use your Google Pixel 7a. Avoid exposing your phone to extreme temperatures, water, and other environments where it could experience damage, such as outdoor settings.

Invest in product protection

Ultimately, one of the best ways to protect your Google Pixel 7a is by investing in a product protection plan. Even with protective gear, accidents are a part of life, and there’s nothing more frustrating than paying for expensive repairs or replacements sooner than you wanted to. Although Google offers protection through Google Preferred Care, it isn't as comprehensive as other product protection plans, and can be expensive.

When you subscribe to Mulberry Unlimited, you can protect all your electronic devices from accidental damage for a low price. It comes with unlimited claims and coverage, plus 24/7 customer support so you'll always know where you stand.
