Phones are smaller now so they are easier to drop.
When you drop them the screen cracks like a brilliant lightning storm frozen in
time. The cloudbursts you see in those old National Geographic magazines
with an explosion of white ribbons across the sky, winding erratically, to
their own rhythm. This sounds beautiful, but for your phone, the more
brilliant the pattern on the screen, the less you can see. So you have to get a new one.
