One in four iPhone owners are living with a broken screen!
Are you rocking an iPhone with a shattered display? It turns out you’re not alone: as many as a quarter of iPhone owners keep on trucking with a broken screen.
We all dread that moment when our smartphone tumbles out of our hands and slaps onto the floor. Is it working? Has it shattered? You don’t need us to tell you it happens a lot, but you might be surprised at how many people shrug it off and live with the consequences.
A huge one in four iPhone owners are currently using their handset with a smashed screen, according to a study by MobileInsurance.co.uk which polled over 2,000 iPhone users from around the UK. From the poll, a large number of iPhone users don’t deem a broken screen a good enough reason to get their phone sent away and fixed.
Of the people with busted iPhones, the average length of the time they’d put up with the issue for was for six months, with the top excuse being that they simply ‘haven’t got round to it’. A further third admitted that they ‘probably wouldn’t bother’ getting their screen fixed.
Surprised by the numbers? Is your iPhone in pristine condition, or are you dealing with a broken screen too? Let us know what you think in the comments.
