It seems like everyone either has broken their phone themselves or has a friend who has broken their phone, possibly more than once.
ONE-THIRD OF SMARTPHONES GET BROKEN EACH YEAR
Within one year, about 31 percent of smart phones will suffer accidental damages.
ACCIDENTS THAT CAUSE DAMAGE
What are some of the top causes of accidental phone damage:
Falling out of the user’s hand
Falling into liquid
Falling out of the user’s lap
Getting knocked off of a table
Having liquid spilled on it
These accidents are incredibly common occurrences and they are often easy to do even if you are very careful. In addition to the 31 percent of users who accidentally break their smart phones once during any 1 year period, more than half of those users will end up breaking their phone through an accident a second time. These damages have added up to more than $6.1 billion dollars in repairs and replacements.
