According to figures from Statcounter, half of all smartphone owners in the UK have an iPhone, and statistically, iPhone owners tend to use their devices more than android users. As such, it only makes sense that they are being dropped more and suffering from cracked screens. But, it still begs the question, ‘do iPhone screens break easier than android’.
The simple answer is no, iPhone and android screens are equally susceptible to suffering from the same kinds of damage, including broken screens.
Why do iPhone screens break easily?
It may seem like iPhone screens are breaking more than ever before, and the fact is, they probably are. Not only do we use our devices more than ever before, with studies showing that the average screen time in the UK stands at 3 hours 23 minutes per day, but they aren’t as durable as they used to be.
Each year, both iPhones and androids get bigger to facilitate better screen resolutions, but they are made thinner to compensate for their size. As such, newer models have more power and capabilities than ever before but can be incredibly fragile and have relatively easy to damage screens.
This combination of increased daily usage and fragility is ultimately why the demand for iPhone screen repairs has never been higher.
Should I have my iPhone screen fixed?
Yes, cracked or broken screens should always be fixed as soon as possible to avoid causing internal damage to your device. If a shattered screen is not fixed, it can cause dust, dirt, water and other debris to work its way into your device and wreak havoc with its hardware and software.
Over time you may notice that the touch response breaks down, the brightness and colour fade and your smartphone will stop working as it once did. Cracked screens are more than just an aesthetic issue, and you will find that screen repairs can extend your device’s life considerably whilst saving you a lot of money down the line.
To summarise, the simple answer is no, iPhone screens do not break easier than androids. When comparing a range of models, it can be seen that iPhones and Androids over the years have both prioritised the increasing size, resolution and power of their screens but at a cost. Whichever smartphone you have, their screens are equally fragile and susceptible to suffering from the same kinds of damage.
