6 tips to keep your phone party proof this festive season

2016-12-13With the Christmas party season in full swing and that festive tipple turning into your tenth Jaeger bomb, certain party events become inevitable; someone trying to corner you for a heart-to-heart, that person crying in the toilets, the David Brent style dancing and the all too predictable smashed phone. Whilst we can’t help you improve your dancing, we can offer some tips to help avoid waking up next to a smashed phone after the infamous work Christmas party…..

Provided by gadget and tech accessories provider, Griffin Technology.

  • Keep it out of sight and zipped away

The more barriers there are to your phone, the less chance it has of falling to its demise. Whether it’s a zipped compartment in a handbag or buttoned pockets, something to stop you reaching for it every 10 seconds can work wonders.

  • Watch out for office geeks in YOLO party mode

If you must grab that group shot on the dance floor, stand well out of the way of wayward dancers. People tend to go overboard at parties and their excitement is just too much – they’ll fling their arms in the air like they just don’t care and that’s the moment your phone’s knocked out of your hands.

  • Resist the urge to take a bathroom selfie

Running water (amongst other things) spells disaster for your phone, so do your phone a favour and take your selfies away from the taps. The last thing you want to be doing is attempting to take your phone apart and pop it into a container of dry rice at 2am…….

  • Invest in a super-sturdy phone case

Suffer from butterfingers on the dance floor when taking that obligatory selfie? It’s worth ensuring your phone is up to the action you put it through and invest in some reliable protection. Even if you’re convinced you won’t hit the floor no matter how many beers you have (and we guarantee you will!) or your table dancing skills are something to be marvelled at, it’s best to guarantee your device will stay safe. Griffin’s Survivor range offers some of the best drop protection going. Now go dance your heart out.

  • Download the Find My Phone app

Just in case the worst happens and your precious phone does go walkies, give yourself the best chance to be reunited with it. Download the Find My Phone app if you have an iPhone or the Where’s My Droid app for Android users. Both will allow you to stalk your phone until you discover where it’s been hiding.

  • Don’t drink too much

Not a popular tip, but it works.

For gadget protection and accessories, Griffin Technology provides a range of cases to suit smartphones, tablets and more. For superior protection of the new iPhone 7, the Survivor Summit is recommended, as it has been tested to meet military standards making it super tough with 10-foot drop protection and a sealed, splash-proof design. Newly launched is the Survivor Clear Wallet – the ultimate in showcasing the new iPhone 7 whilst providing the best defense of it simultaneously. In addition to its premium shock-absorbing bumper, the case contains an integrated folio-type wallet with card slots, where IDs, credit cards, bus passes, cash and more can be stored.
