Will my phone break if dropped?



There's no definitive answer to this question, as the chances of your cell phone screen breaking if you drop it depend on a number of factors. The type of phone you have, the surface it's dropped on, and the height from which it's dropped can all affect whether or not the screen will break.



That said, there are some general things you can keep in mind that may help reduce the likelihood of your screen breaking if you do drop your phone. For example, newer phones tend to have stronger screens that are less likely to break than older models. And dropping your phone on a soft surface like carpet or grass is less likely to break the screen than dropping it on a hard surface like concrete.



Of course, the best way to avoid having to worry about your cell phone screen breaking is to not drop it in the first place! But if you do find yourself in a situation where your phone takes a tumble, hopefully this information will help lessen your anxiety about what might happen to it.



To minimize the likelihood of breaking your cell phone when dropping it you can install a screen protector and a case on the phone. A cell phone case does not only protect your cell phone from breaking when dropped but it also helps to grip the cell phone so you are less likely to drop it.



There are many different types of cell phone cases on the market, from clear cases that show off the original phone design to rugged cases that offer maximum protection. There are also a variety of materials to choose from, including plastic, silicone, and leather. You can even find cell phone cases with built-in storage for things like credit cards or cash.


No matter what type of cell phone case you choose, make sure it's one that you're comfortable using and that offers the level of protection you're looking for. And remember, even the best case won't prevent your cell phone from breaking if you drop it from a great height or on a very hard surface. But taking some simple precautions can help reduce the chances of your screen breaking if you do happen to drop your phone.





Dropping your phone can lead to a broken screen, or other types of damage. If you drop your phone and it lands on its corner, it could break the glass display and cause cracks. Maybe you want to know how far away from the ground you can drop your phone before impact damage happens? It depends on how high up you are when you let go!

If you're worried about dropping your phone in water, there are ways to prevent that too! Just put some plastic wrap over the screen so that if it falls into water it won't get wet! Or maybe just don't take baths anymore because they're dangerous (and not good for cats).



Some drops are worse than others.

Dropping your phone is a lot like rolling an egg off your kitchen counter: it's unlikely to survive, but it can be done. If you want to avoid any damage at all, here are the best ways to prevent it:

  • Pick the right kind of phone for you. Don't get a device that's too delicate for what you do with it. If you're clumsy and drop things often, consider getting something sturdier or getting insurance on your current device so when disaster strikes (and it will), there's no financial impact

  • Avoiding drops if possible is ideal—but if one does happen, try not to panic! Keep cool and assess the situation calmly. Is there any sign of smoke or fire? If so, put out those flames with an extinguisher before moving on to other steps below! It may take some time after these steps are complete before everything returns back into working order again but don't give up hope yet because you've come too far now - continue reading through this guide until completion before giving up completely


Your phone's case matters.

You can protect your phone with a case. Sometimes this even works.

It's important to keep in mind that there are no 100% guarantees when it comes to phones or cases. There's always a chance that something bad could happen, even if you've got a case on your device and you're handling it carefully. For example, if you drop your phone into water or onto concrete from an especially high height, then there may be no way for any kind of protection to save it from damage at all. But if all goes well—and assuming that you don't lose your grip on the thing mid-fall—you'll probably be able to come away with just one large bruise on your ego instead of an unusable smartphone and maybe some scuffs around the edges as well.



Know your phone's limits.

Knowing the weight of your phone is important to understanding how strong it is. It's also important to know the height and width of your phone so that you can figure out how much force is needed to break it. If you have a Galaxy S10, for example, then you need more force than if you had a Pixel 3a or an iPhone 8 (just in case those are the phones you're considering buying). You should also consider whether you'll be dropping your phone from different angles; this will help determine what "breaking" means for each fall scenario.



Dropping your phone might break it, but there are ways to prevent it.

Dropping your phone is a fact of life, but there are ways to prevent it from breaking.

  • Use a case. Cases come in many shapes and sizes and can be created from nearly any material, including silicone and plastic. They'll not only protect your device from damage, but they can also make it easier to hold on to the phone when you're using one-handed. You can find cases for all kinds of devices at most electronics stores or online retailers like Amazon or eBay. Some even have built in screen protectors that keep dirt, grease and fingerprints off of the screens while keeping them safe from scratches and dings when dropped onto hard surfaces like concrete or asphalt.

  • Avoid dropping on hard surfaces like concrete or asphalt as much as possible because these materials will cause more damage than soft ground such as grass lawns or wood floors inside homes where there may be less chances for things hitting other objects nearby that could scratch up their outer shells (like those wooden tables).



When it comes to dropping phones, you can never be too careful. If you’re still worried that your phone might break if you drop it, there are some things you can do to protect it. One option is to invest in a case that will absorb some of the shock from a drop and prevent damage. Another option is to just be more careful with your phone! Keep in mind that drops happen all the time—even when people don’t mean them or realize they have happened—so try not to freak out too much if something similar happens with your device. But if none of these options work for you, then maybe just stick with holding onto those devices instead of letting go entirely (though who wants that?).
