Should i switch? read my concerns before answering please

I have a Samsung galaxy s6, and its screen is defective, it started with some vertical lines on the side (green and purple), then a little blob of purple, now it has a black hole and the whole screen is purple. It has fallen a few times but the defects were never caused directly by an impact. So now im scared of buying another samsung phone, because of this. So what should I do? Is this a common thing? Can it easily happen again?

Im contemplating on buying an Iphone, but i dont like IOS for anything. Too restricted for me.

Drops are like that.

Failures may not be instantly apparent. This has caused many to abandon a brand and since there are other phone makers, you let them change brands. I have an older LG and never dropped it, but my prior phones were never dropped for simple reasons such as I didn't want to replace my phone as soon as other folk.

So, if you dropped it, even once, all bets are off.

you dropped the phone several times

drops may not immediate affect the phone. imo, the problem has nothing to do with samsung but with your clumsiness.

stay with android

I guess you should stick with Android if you want more freedom on controlling of your phone, that is the biggest thing that Android is having. Talking about screen defect, i guess the problem is entirely of your fault since it has been fell for few times. Be make sure to always use screen protector and case to prevent of any damage.
