Cracked Screens
« on: December 21, 2016, 05:24:25 am »
I'm curious to see how many people have mobile devices with cracked screens, as well as the stories behind some of these unfortunate occurrences.

Personally, my answer is yes. I've had my tablet for around 2 years and never broken the screen, but pretty recently (maybe a month ago), I was holding it weird and trying to multitask, and ended up dropping it onto the pavement by accident. The entire screen is cracked, and you can definitely tell where the tablet hit the ground, because all the cracks "stem outward" from one of the specific corners. The screen still works, but I hope to maybe get it fixed one day.

What about you all?

I have only ever cracked two screens, and one of them was very difficult and unexpected.

My first ever phone was a T-Mobile Comet, or how I lovingly referred to it, the Nokia's retarded cousin. That thing went through four years of abuse. I dropped it on the sidewalk, I dropped it in puddles, in the toilet, the sink, down the stairs, accidentally stepped on it, I even washed it and dried it TWICE. It still worked, albeit a little weird sometimes. I cracked it when my brother brushed past me in the kitchen and knocked it out of my hand. But even then, it was a tiny little hairline crack across the screen. It was so small that it didn't even matter, and that is considering that my screen was about the size of postage stamp!

My second phone was a wimp, I dropped it thrice and it had a spiderweb crack in it that cut my hand a couple times.

My third is still going strong. The metal border is a bit messed up though

#1 I dropped and the other is admittedly because of gamer rage.

I have this magical tendency not to crack phone screens. But, on the other end of the spectrum, I have gone swimming with a flip phone in my pocket. 3 hours submerged in the water is, in fact, enough to ruin a 15 dollar phone.

I cracked my phone screen about a year ago. Someone knocked it off my desk at school and it shattered :/ I saved up some money though and brought it into the Apple Store to get fixed so now it's fine
