Did You Know? Breaking Down Smartphone Damage Statistics and the Cost of Repairs.

One of the worst things we fear after we invest in a smartphone is breaking it. We fear the tragic accident, the heat of passion, or the angry situation where there is nothing left to do but to throw your phone into the other room or against the wall. And SPOILER ALERT, we all do it! We all have those unfortunate times where either the phone isn’t working as fast as it used to so you punish it, you drop it in the toilet on accident or onto the asphalt, or you just flat out drop something on top of it.

With over 70% of the U.S. population owning smartphones, have you ever wondered who breaks them the most or how they are broken? Well, fortunate for you we kick this thing off with a little question such as, Did You Know?

Did you know that men are more likely to break their phones than women? According to studies, men are more likely to break their phones in the garage and on driveway than anywhere else. Makes sense doesn’t it? That’s where the work gets done and of course you are either going to drop it, get it wet, or have a tool of some kind fall and crack it. It’s the worst, you try to fix one thing and you break another! Another fun fact you might not have known is that men are 70% more likely to lose their phones and 57% more likely to drop their phones in the toilet.

But lets not forget the ladies, yes they break and lose phones too, but their most common place for their phone to be broken is in the bathroom! They are also most often the victims of smart phone theft. Those that are 25-34 are the most likely to have their phone stolen and those 35-44 are the most likely to lose their device (unfortunately, we can’t help you with theft or loss). Since the age of smartphone’s began, and Apple released the iPhone, Americans have spent well over 5.9 billion dollars in damage repairs for their phones. That’s right 5.9 BILLION DOLLARS. As devices like the iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung GS 6 grow larger and larger, these screens become a larger target for potential disaster.
