No matter how you did it, your phone screen is cracked. There are long-running gags that iPhone screens have the longevity of spaghetti in hot water, but truth be told, all types of phone are vulnerable.
When should you get a cracked phone screen repaired?
If the crack is minor and not really affecting the functionality of your phone, then you may be able to get away without a repair for a while. However, it’s not an ideal long-term solution, and we would still recommend bringing it into a repair shop for a mobile expert to look at before it becomes an urgent issue.
If the crack is large, has spread across your screen, or shows any signs of glass shards pointing upwards, then ensure you take it in for repair ASAP – after all, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
What if I don’t get it checked out?
It can be problematic to leave a cracked screen unfixed. At a minimum, it will make streaming videos or FaceTiming difficult. But in a worst-case scenario, tiny glass shards can get into fingers or eyes, and aren’t always noticeable to begin with; nonetheless, though, they’ll be unpleasant and painful to deal with when ignored.
Screen cracks can also cause further damage to the phone itself too. Oils, foreign materials and debris can make their way into even small crevices, which is just going to cause additional problems for your precious iPhone or Samsung down the line.
