Gone are the times when you can use the NOKIA 3310 phone for almost a week without charging and probably drive a car on it without causing any damage to it. Nowadays, we use smartphones that are prone to cracks whenever an external force is applied.
Advancement in technology should bring about device durability but it is a different case since iPhone screen repair has become a lucrative business over the past decade. The blame shouldn’t fall squarely on the manufacturers though as we all have our roles to play. You can’t blame a company for wanting to increase sales and that is pretty much in line with their business models.
Phone users want phones that are bigger, yet thinner and sleeker, offsetting strides made in strengthening glass but these kinds of specifications will not fit well with what a smartphone should feel like. There are a range of technological, practical and economic reasons why smartphones are such delicate devices.
So, why do iPhones crack easily? Here’s a look at what could be the causes:
- The thin design makes it brittle
The demand for thinner and lighter phones by customers means iPhone’s brittleness will be more pronounced. This is because, to satisfy them, some areas of strength need to be sacrificed. This results in an increase in the production of brittle phone screens.
- Big screen and lack of protection
The fact that the screen is very large makes it more likely for the phone to fall on the screen when it falls. This increases the chance of shattering. The screens of iPhones last longer when they have strong screen covers and screen protections. Lack of this means they can easily break when they fall.
- Exposed rear camera
In the iPhone 6 model, the rear camera is exposed, which allows it to damage easily when it falls. This is because the camera’s design protrudes away from the body.
- The screen dimension of the iPhone
The relatively big size of the iPhone makes it easier for the screen to crack. It is widely known that the iPhone’s screen is its weakest point as there’s every likelihood that the screen breaks when the phone falls. To have a stronger phone, some things have to change which includes the reduction in the screen size although this might go against the original basic design of apple phones.
- The iPhone is hard
The iPhone has been designed to withstand a lot and because it doesn’t break easily might be one of the reasons why it’s brittle. Scratch-resistance breeds brittleness.
- Unprotected corners
The corners of the iPhone are less protected compared to other smartphones. So, even when the phone falls on its corners, the screen can still shatter.
- It falls easily
This has to do with carelessness on the part of the users. Several claims have it that the size of the phone makes it uneasy to handle. This might be so as the demand for a bigger screen affects the overall size of the iPhone.
