The invention of smartphones revolutionized the mobile phone experience. With the touch screens, you get to navigate the phone without the hassle of pressing tough keypads like was with the traditional handsets. However, a smartphone screen is the most delicate part of the phone as it can easily break under high impact.
Luckily, some smartphone screens retain their usability even after cracking. As a result, most people find no need to replace their screens and opt to use the cracked screen. It is important to understand that doing so has some risks. Below are some of the reasons why it is not advisable to use a cracked screen.
Once the screen has cracked, expect more issues with how it functions. With time, it may lose its ability to respond fast to your gestures and may even lose its response completely. You should also understand that the cracks on the screen of your phone also make the phone susceptible to more damage. Dust and fluids can seep into the phone through the cracks, which can easily damage the phone.
Can cause splinters on your fingers
By using a phone with a cracked screen, you put yourself at risk of getting small cuts from the sharp exposed edges of the glass. If the cracks are severe, have the screen replaced immediately so as to protect yourself.
Most smartphone screens have a high resolution, which makes it easy to view things on the screen. However, with a cracked screen, the high display capability is damaged, and it becomes difficult to see things on the screen. This may force you to strain your eyes every time you are using the phone. Reduced visibility of your screen can put you in danger if you are using your phone’s GPS when driving. As you strain to get the directions from the screen, you can lose focus on the road and may easily get involved in an accident.
