As mobile phone displays are much tougher than they used to be, it seems like they’re indestructible. Sadly, they’re not. Dropping your phone can often break the display. Your phone can no longer be considered useful.

As desperately depressing as a broken phone screen may look, it may not be as terminal or as expensive as it looks.
