Why you should trade in your phone and upgrade ?

For a device you will use constantly, for email, texts, web surfing, Facebook posting, tweets, paying for goods at stores, hailing an Uber or Lyft, listening to music, watching movies and TV shows, taking all those amazing photos and sharing them everywhere under the sun.

According to eMarketer, we'll spend an average of 3 hours and 49 minutes daily on our smartphones this year.

How many hours do you put in? Is it the first thing you look at in the morning when you wake up? Do you have texts flying across the screen all day, read the phone on your lunch break, take oodles of photos in the afternoon, and then spend your evenings curled up in front of the phone playing Candy Crush Saga like you used to in front of the TV ?

An underperformance phone will downgrade your user experience and waste significant daily time. Therefore, trade-in your phone and upgrading to a new phone is the wise choice.

It’s good for the environment:
Apart from the parts we give it a new life, we recycle the rest of the phone parts. We pride ourselves on being environmentally friendly; research showing that recycling just one cell phone saves enough energy to power a laptop for 44 hours.
Cell phones and other electronic devices also contain hazardous materials such as lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, and brominated flame retardants. If tossed in landfills, these materials can contaminate air, soil, and groundwater.
For every one million cell phones recycled, we can recover 75 pounds of gold, 772 pounds of silver, 33 pounds of palladium, and 35,274 pounds of copper; cell phones also contain tin, zinc, and platinum that can be reused.
