Are foldable phones the future? How difficult will it be to repair and keep from breaking?

Written by Kyle Do Rosario

Do you remember the days of being able to fit your phone into your jean’s pocket? Although smartphones are slimmer and lighter than ever, our fascination with big screens means that most smartphones are long and wide. As a result, big names like Apple, Huawei and Samsung are racing to create the first ever foldable and bendable smartphone, with many prototypes already in existence. The idea of such a device is mind-boggling, so you’re probably wondering how breakable these phones will be and how easy they’re going to be to repair. Here’s what you need to know.

Safe When Folded

When a bendable phone is in its folded position, it’s offers more screen protection than a non-foldable phone. This is because the screen is completely protected by the back of the phone when folded inwards. However, screens are still totally open to cracks and scratches, from being dropped.

Bendable

When creating a phone and the screen that can bend, most companies will have designed them to be more durable. These foldable phones will be sturdier and more resistant to breaking than many phones that have come before them, which means that they’ll be less likely screen cracks or button problems. Its outer body would still be as vulnerable as that of a standard device.

Better Phone Cover

Better Phone Covers Needed

When considering the above cons of having a foldable phone, it’s evident that anyone using one will still need a cover. This might be challenging as it would need to be as flexible as the phone itself. Like a standard cover it would also need to offer protection from water and from accidental dropping.

A Brave New World

Foldable phones are a whole new ballgame. It’s going to be interesting to see what unique problems these types of phones present to phone repair experts. While we can certainly expect a hardier phone, you’ll still need to maintain and repair it – at least until we figure out how to make completely damage proof smart devices.
