Is your phone screen cracked?

Recommended Posts

Yes or no 

And discuss

 

Mine: not cracked (Android)

 

But if it was i dont think i would pay $200 to get it fixed.

Why not just get a new phone?

How's does it work where you live?

How do you keep your screen from getting cracked?

I got my first smart phone about 16 months ago and that one lasted about 14 of those and then cracked and swiftly died.

Got given another that I managed to break/crack horribly within a month.

 

Got a new one now, bought outright and as cheap as possible.

 

I refuse to pay big money for phones or tvs

My glass screen protector is. I buy them by the 5 pack, and there's a lifetime warranty. Time to swap out tomorrow.

Bonham for chrissakes you never pay full price for a phone. 

 

Go Phones are good nowadays. You can pretty much get last year's model for under a hundred. 

 

If you want to keep up with the Joneses you can probably get a decent phone for half price on eBay.

 

Paying full price for this shit is for the suckers and fools.

 

I use an S5. Does everything and probably only worth forty bucks online.

Well shit I was wrong. 

 

Still hundreds cheaper than the new crap they're peddling though I would imagine.

I've never cracked a screen before.  I did lose one coming home from the bars one night.  But it eventually turned up in the backyard a few days later.  

 

I just ordered the Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact. 300 bucks.  It's my first non-100-dollar Wally world special (Samsung Galaxy J1, J3, J3 mission, etc).  It's got gorilla glass, but I don't know if that means shit, or is just some gimmick that protects against scratching vs breaking.  Not sure.

You can also take the battery out, have an IR blaster for universal remote, covert to Qi charging, and it's waterproof. Fuck every phone after it.

Plus curved screens can only have those liquid screen protectors. No replacing that shit. Fuck curved screens.

Oh wow, I thought I was the last person to still be using an S5.  It's been so good to me that I recently invested in an extra charger and battery.

 

As for cracked screens, they are viewed as "cool" these days because apparently they earn street cred for surviving whatever caused it to be cracked.  Some are even intentionally cracking their screens to get "the look".  Stupid I know, but most trends are.

 

I think Apple pushed the envelope too far by jacking up their prices to over a grand, as iPhone sales are way down.  Gotta be kinda stupid to dish out that much money for something that will be outdated in 2 years.
