3. Space it out
Most times we don't give time for the maintenance of our phones despite using the phone all the time. It needs cleaning too. Clean your phone for some space. Use other storage tools and transfer all heavy files and photos elsewhere. Freeing up space will also make space for some new apps and activities on your phone which will add to the newness of the phone.
Yes, quite literally! Clean the phone, use an alcohol-based cleanser, and clean the main screen of the phone. If your old screen protector has been caught in a web of dust then get rid of that and get a new screen protector. You should also clean the camera lens and the speaker slots for better audio and voice quality. Cleaning the phone will add a new sheen to the phone.
5. Tone it over
Change all the notification ringtones. Starting from incoming calls to messages to whats app notifications and ringtones of other commonly used apps on your phone. This will add to the new feeling of an old phone.
