Cracked Phone Screens: What Causes Them?

- Dropping it on a hard surface is a bad idea.
- Sitting on your phone when it’s in your back pocket is not a good idea.

How to Repair a Smartphone’s Cracked Screen
Depending on the severity of the damage, you may have many alternatives for mending your cracked screen:
Make use of packaging tape. Cut a tiny piece of packing tape to fit over the cracks and stick it in place. Trim the tape with an X-Acto knife if the damage is on the phone’s side.
Make use of super glue. Small fractures can be filled using cyanoacrylate adhesive, often known as super glue. Use as little glue as possible, then clean up any excess with a cotton swab or cloth gently.
The touchscreen is still functional, and the glass can be replaced for around $10-$20. The tools you’ll need may vary depending on the sort of phone you have.
Request that the manufacturer correct the problem. If your phone is still under warranty, the manufacturer may be willing to replace it at no cost to you. Even though the warranty has run out, the manufacturer may still be able to fix it for a fee. Accidental damage is not covered by most manufacturer warranties, but you may purchase a supplemental warranty that does.
