We’ve all had at least one friend who goes around with a phone screen that looks like a spider’s web. But what would you do if those cracks suddenly appeared on your phone? Sometimes, even in this world of “Cornering Gorilla Glass” and “Tempered glass screen protectors”, there’s no guarantee that your phone will come out of a fall in pristine conditions. That’s why we’ve come up with this list of things you can do when your phone gets crackin’! (sorry)
Check the damage
The first thing you should do is figure out how bad the situation is. The size of the crack, where on the screen, etc. Usually, a small crack in the corner isn’t too big an issue. But if it’s a deep crack and in the middle of the screen, there could be damage to the actual touchscreen beneath the glass or risk of damaging the internal parts of your phone in the future.
Back up your data
Okay, so either your phone is in a manageable condition or you need to repair it straight away. Either way, you need to get on a cloud or your computer and back up all your data as soon as possible. This way, all your contacts, photos, music and everything else you have on your phone is safe and recoverable even if you send it to the shop for repair or it gets damaged further in the future.
Stick it out
In a lot of cases, it’s only the top glass that breaks instead of the actual touchscreen. You might just be able to make your phone work long enough till you gather up enough money to get it fixed or buy a new phone. We recommend sticking on a new tempered glass protector on top to avoid getting any dust or moister into your phone though. It’ll even protect your fingers against the sharp glass!
Find a Local Shop
Warning! This step needs you to step out of your house and make an effort!
All kidding aside, finding a local shop to fix your phone might seem easy enough but you need to make sure your device is in safe hands. Research the shop through friends or online sources, get a clear quote before handing over your device and make sure you’ve backed up your data. Keep in mind that some of these shops might not provide an after-service warranty or use the best of parts.
