Can I Keep Using My Phone if the Screen is Cracked?

Can I Keep Using My Phone if the Screen is Cracked?

Smartphones have become an integral part of our day-to-day lives. They are always in our possession, whether in our hand, pocket, or purse. At work, they sit on our desks. At night, they snooze on our nightstands. They are often the last thing we check before we drift off to sleep and the first thing we look at when we wake up.

Because we handle our smartphones so much, there is always a chance for an accident to happen. Even if we use great care, it’s easy to fumble and drop the phone, shattering its screen. This can be a devastating mistake, especially given the price of a new phone.

If you don’t want to shell out for a repair or new phone, you may be tempted to keep using your phone, even with its shattered screen. But beware of these risks:

  • Finger cuts – The screen of your smartphone is made of glass. Once shattered, the splinters could make deep cuts in your fingers.
  • Radiation – Every smartphone emits radiation, but the glass screen of your smartphone protects you from that radiation. Once the screen is shattered, you lose the barrier. The jury is still out as to how harmful that radiation is, but it’s best to err on the side of safety and avoid it.
  • Defective display – Your smartphone has a high-definition display. It gives you a great viewing experience, allowing you to enjoy your videos, games, or movies. Once the screen is shattered, the high-definition features will be gone.
  • Unresponsiveness – You interact with your smartphone through its screen, which responds to your touch. Once the screen is shattered, you may not be able to perform important functions. Your taps and swipes may no longer be recognized.
  • Electronics exposure – Your smartphone has many tiny electronic parts inside the case. They need to be protected from the elements to ensure that the phone will function efficiently. Once dust or water gets inside the case, it will compromise the integrity of the components and your phone will no longer function properly. A shattered screen makes your phone vulnerable to outside elements.
  • Navigation failure – Your smartphone is a map and a GPS device all rolled into one. Once the screen is shattered, though, the GPS may not work as it should, and you could find yourself traveling in circles.

In short, a phone with a cracked screen is no longer a safe or effective device. Take precautions to ensure the safety of your smartphone screen. If it is accidentally shattered, take it to the service center for a replacement immediately.
