Are we overly attached to our smartphones? Let’s face it – chances are, many of us spend more time with our smartphones than many people that we care about. With that much screen time, we want to ensure that our devices are working at peak performance. You’d think that this means continuously buying the latest and greatest model the moment they come out, but this has been a slowing trend for many. Over the last few years, smartphone users have been holding on to their smartphones for a longer period of time. In 2019 the average smartphone user held on to their phone for 33 months, up from 23 months in 2016.
Every second, 2 smartphone screens break in America. That’s a lot of damage! And typically once a screen gets damaged, it’s likely to get worse. This is no reason to throw out your phone or trade it in for a new one as the burgeoning smartphone repair market is alive and well to the tune of $4 billion. Services like these can make quick work of your minor smartphone repairs and get you back to normal in no time.
