Screen sensitivity

by mrmrsphotos / September 19, 2013 2:41 PM PDT

I dropped my phone recently and it cracked a little. Then I dropped it again and it cracked more. Then, unbelieveably, I dropped it again this morning and its completely shattered.
Has anyone else had this happen? ie where the screen seems to get more and more fragile?

develops a crack, it instantly becomes more fragile.

What you are describing is completely normal

Good point

Your example reminds me about a cracked windshield on a car. If a small crack is not repaired right away, it will only get bigger and eventually the whole windshield will have to be replaced.

(NT) Sounds like you need to get a more grippy cover.
