Whether you are using an Android phone or iPhone, it can become susceptible to more damage when its screen cracks. Repairing these problems can usually be costly. There are many things that can go wrong when your screen cracks. For instance, a few cracks can become many. Also, when your screen cracks too badly, it can become impossible for you to read the screen any longer. With a cracked screen, water and other materials can seep beneath the surface and damage its fragile components, creating more damage than a cracked screen alone.
When your iPhone screen is broken and your device experiences other issues, Apple won’t accept your repair warranty. That is why you need to have your screen in one piece. The manufacturer’s warranty won’t cover replacement of the broken screen. Fortunately, you can get cell phone screen repair from reputable phone repair shops.
Here’s why you should not use a broken phone screen:
Avoid Having a Shattered Screen
When a phone cracks even slightly, it can completely shatter in no time. This is especially possible if you drop it. When the screen shatters, you should be seeing the screen in many pieces.
Prevent Further Damage
Without the screen’s protection, the major components of your phone can break. For example, the digitizer, which is located behind the screen, interprets your touch on the screen. A cracked screen exposes the digitizer to things like dust, debris, and water that can create lots of damage. Over time, it will break and leave you with greater repairs to think about.
You can be Cut by the Glass
Because the broken glass can be sharp, it can cut you. In fact, it can embed into your skin. Although a single cut can look fine, just imagine many tiny glass shards stuck at your fingertips.
It is Ugly to Look At
A broken phone screen makes your device ugly-looking. You carry your phone everywhere and people will notice your broken screen. Such a sight can reflect on you. People may judge you based on what they can see, including your phone’s condition. If you are like most people, you would rather keep your broken phone at home than bring it everywhere, leaving you without a device to use.
Fixing a broken phone screen can be easier if it’s an Android phone than an iPhone. It is not recommended to fix it by yourself unless you are experienced at it. Things can easily go wrong when you fix it yourself and it’s not cheap to purchase all the accessories you need to fix it.
