If you've ever been in this boat, don't worry, we feel your pain. This particular writer has experienced the heartbreak of finding a broken screen on his iPhone.
And judging by a survey from (yep, guys, sorry - it's them again) myvouchercodes.co.uk, almost half of iPhones in this country have some screen fault.
The figures - which we'll take with a pinch of salt considering their source - claim 42% of UK iPhones are being used with a broken screen. Whatsmore, over half of iPhone owners claim to have cracked theirs at some point.
Bizarrely, 51% say they're quite happy to continue using their device like that (obviously not the OCD half of users then) and just over 30% don't want to use their insurance to pay for the damage.
We're all too aware of the costs of replacing a broken display if you follow the official route and take your unit into an Apple Store. We nearly vomited on hearing how much Apple wanted for a replacement display (bearing in mind the cost of having just purchased the phone).
One final stat for you - only 44% of iPhone owners bother to use protection. Screen protectors and cases, of course. Which is asking for trouble really if you don't bother.
But judging by the comments you guys made last time we featured myvouchercodes.co.uk, you may not be utterly convinced. What do you reckon?
