Motorola Conducts Survey: How Often Do You Break Your Smartphone?

Oct 30, 2015 06:40 PM EDT | By Mikey Blanco


Motorola and Verizon do a solid throwback with the revival of their partnership on the Droid line. Five years ago, the duo released the first Droid. It was so successful that the Android OS was catapulted to the mainstream.

It was such a big deal that Motorola was even willing to pay Lucasfilms for rights to the Droid name, CNET noted. However, interest soon waned and Samsung's Note and HTC's One lines became the standard-bearers of the Android OS.

Today, the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is making a comeback. And not only does it have solid specs, it also built to last care of its ShatterShield technology . To help market the product, Motorola conducted a survey called "Cracked Screens and Broken Hearts," Android Headlines reported.

The survey involved 6,000 adults across six different countries. What Motorola researchers found was quite interesting. First is that a good 50% of all people have broken their smartphone screens at one time or another. Folks from India have it the worst with a reported 65% of them breaking their phones at some point.

Surprisingly, the US and UK account for the least broken displays, with a reported 34% and 38% only, accordingly. Of the many ways people break their phones, "phone fumbles" are the number 1 cause for broken phones.5% of the respondents also cite throwing their phone at something as the reason for breaking it.

The survey also revealed that 21% currently have a phone with a broken display, showing a reluctance to change or repair their phones as long as it still works. Additionally, 23% would keep on using their phones despite the risk of getting cut because of broken glass.

When it comes to phone repairs, 42% cite cost as the reason for sticking it out with their broken phones. 7% have also broken their phones while taking a selfie. Equally, 7% would rather post an incriminating "private selfie" on social media than suffer a broken phone.

Digital Trends reported that the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is guaranteed by the company to last four years. It has a battery life of two days and boasts a 13-hour charge after only 15 minutes of charging. Other specs of the Verizon exclusive are 5.4 inch display, a 3,760mAh battery for a longer charge, 32GB or 64GB of storage, a microSD slot for up to a 2TB card of expandable storage, a 21-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
