We’re All A Little Clumsy When Handling Our Phones

Who hasn’t dropped it, lost it, cracked it, or spilled something on it? These close calls happen to everyone, and according to a new survey, the average person has 140 moments of “phone peril” each year. Broken down by age group, it’s no surprise to find that Gen Z is the clumsiest with an average of 187 oopsies each year. 69% of people say they’re currently using a phone that is partly broken. The most common problems are a cracked or scratched screen, battery problems, and overheating.
