5 things to do with cracks on the phone screen

Cracks on phone screens are unpreventable when we use our phone all of the time and we may think it is a normal thing. In fact, cracked phone screens can affect us more than we think.

  • It affects the device’s functionality and usability in terms of backlight, discoloration and more
  • It makes your phone less durable
  • Tiny pieces of glass may even damage your face & fingers

Here are some things to do after cracking your phone’s screen.

1. Put a screen protector on a cracked screen

For displays where chips and shards of glass are loose or missing, adding a screen protector is pointless. It won’t be able to adhere properly as the glass is in motion. The result: you wasted money on a screen protector.

However, in certain circumstances, you still can put a screen protector on a cracked screen.
Indeed, where the crack is minimal, putting a screen protector over a cracked screen might help keep the glass from cracking further. It might prevent further spidering.

Also, you can apply a camera lens protector the make sure your camera remains intact

2. Scrub and clean the cracks on phone screen​

Rubbing your phone screen with toothpaste is one way you can try to clean your screen dirt and scratches. Even though it can’t recover your screen, it helps in urgent cleaning, it’s cheap and easy to use. Skim through the guides below to see how to clean a broken phone screen with your toothpaste.

  • Apply the toothpaste to the cracked part of the screen.
  • Rub it gently, and leave for a while.
  • Use clean cotton to wipe it off after some minutes.

3. Use packing tape to keep your finger safe​

As mentioned above, tiny pieces of cracked glass are not what we should ignore. When you touch them 5 – 10 hours a day, they may harm your fingers when surfing or even your face when making phone calls.

To temporarily deal with it before you have a chance to replace a new phone screen, try using transparent packing tape to cover the broken surface. It prevents those risks while ensuring touch sensitivity at a medium level. Of course, this is not recommended to use for a long time since it may annoy you with its inconvenience.

4. Check your phone insurance​

When you’ve already done all things you can to temporarily save your cracked phone. Go ahead to check if your phone insurance covers cracked phone screens, and under what conditions.
If so, arranging a fix should be straightforward. The problem is you might have to pay an excess fee and have to live without a phone for few days.
If you don’t have an insurance, you’ll need to take matters into your own hands.
