5 Reasons You Shouldn’t Use a Phone with A Cracked Screen

Cracked-iPhone-Screen

Does dropping your iPhone give you a mini heart attack? 

“Sh!t” is all you can think as it plummets to the floor, shattering the screen into a million little pieces and leaving you helpless.

Most of us move on with our day, continuing to use our damaged device. Even though, it’s actually unsafe to use a phone with a cracked screen. 

Did you know that 85% of smartphone owners drop their phones at least once a year?

Unfortunately, most aren’t protected by Tempered Glass.

Here are 5 reasons you shouldn’t use a phone with a cracked screen:  

1. Your Phone May Stop Working All Together

If your phone has a broken screen, it’s likely that it will become less responsive. Eventually, your phone might stop working altogether! How can we take those killer selfies or answer all those Snapchats with a broken phone? That’s right you can’t! Protecting that iPhone with a Tempered Glass is sure to keep your phone in one piece and selfie ready! 

2. No More Protection 

Your smartphone screen is like your skin and is as delicate as a mirror when it hits the ground.  It protects the inner workings of your iPhone, and who hasn’t used their iPhone’s screen as a mirror for their emergency lipstick touch-ups?

When your screen is left cracked, your morning Starbucks can also seep through the cracks and damage the inside. Keep your phone protected and your lipstick intact with our Beauty Glass.

3. Safety Hazard

Scrolling through Snapchats and Instagram can actually become hazardous to your health with a cracked screen! With a cracked phone screen, you put your fingers, and not to mention your fresh manicure at risk. If your phone screen has severe cracks, then you could possibly hurt yourself and limit yourself from social media… and who wants that? 

4. It’s hard to watch/like/follow/read with a cracked screen

iPhone displays are getting bigger, and the definition is getting better.  We are constantly watching YouTube Videos and editing pictures on our smartphone but that becomes nearly impossible with little cracks all over your screen. Moreover, it is less enjoyable surfing the web, reading articles or interacting on social media with a cracked screen.

5. Handsfree Isn’t Hassle-free

Taking your eyes off the road while driving can be a major hazard and safety risk.  It might also be illegal. As more states ban holding smartphones while driving, using your phone’s GPS to help you navigate unfamiliar terrain becomes nearly impossible with a cracked screen.

Luckily, a small investment in a tempered glass screen protector or beauty glass can save you all this trouble! 

Four Reasons Why You Need A Beauty Bank

LOW POWER MODE?

Handbag essentials can vary from the everyday lipgloss to your favorite hand lotion and maybe even a few hair ties. These are things that we might need as the day goes on to stay prepared.

What we’ve found is that, the Beauty Bank is something we always need. That’s the reason it’s our number one accessory and never stays home. The Beauty Bank illuminating compact mirror and portable charger is versatile and reliable- it has our back no matter what the day throws at us.

Here’s why…

beauty bank

#1
Portable Charger

 First and foremost, our beauty bank is a portable charger. It’s designed to accompany the woman on the go no matter the day… or night. It’s compatible with both Apple and Android phones, and has a 300 mAH which can charge your phone fully 2x before needing to re-charge. Never worry about “low power mode” again!

#2
Dual Mirror Function

The mirrors are 1x (normal) and 3x magnified to keep up with all your beauty needs. One of our favorite hacks is to use it to fill in our brows or for precise lipstick application! We also love it for quick check-ups after eating to make sure we didn’t leave anything left in our teeth!

#3
Magnetic

Ever wonder where all of your bobby pins disappear to? When you have your beauty bank, you can drop it in your purse and they will magically reappear! You’ll never run the risk of a bad hair day.

#4
Vanity Light

You can use the mirror 24/7 thanks to the vanity light feature. Whether it’s the middle of the day or a night on the town, it’s ready when you are.

OH, AND…

If you’re anything like us and are constantly losing things in your purse, click on the light and you’ll find what you’re looking for in no time.
