Screen Scratches Removal

Due to the number of times that a person uses their phones, screen scratches are inevitable. Some use a screen protector film, but if your phone is new and you haven’t had the chance to get a screen protector yet and it’s already scratched, you can put white toothpaste on the affected area, let it sit for a little while, and then wipe it off using a piece of cloth. You will be surprised to find that the scratches have disappeared like magic.

Cup Speaker

This is a very handy way to amplify the sound of the smartphone, especially those models that don't have the best quality of speakers. Of course, you can external speakers for your phone, but a lot of the better ones are too expensive. If you have a limited budget, just use a paper cup that can add about 13 decibels more to the normal 59 decibels that the smartphone produces.
