  • My YouTube channel has a lot to do with cellphone repair and cellphone durability.

  • Believe it or not, I have only broken one cellphone in my life on accident.

  • I'll tell you that story in a minute, but first I want to hear from a few of my YouTube

  • friends to see if they've ever broken a phone.

  • Normally on their channels we see these beautiful cellphones displayed perfectly, but I think

  • there are some horror stories hidden there somewhere.

  • Let's find out.

  • [Intro]

  • [Kelsey] Hey guys, I'm Kelsey, and this is Pebbles, and with my phones I'm usually pretty

  • careful.

  • I typically put my phone in an OtterBox, but the one time that I didn't was when I cracked

  • the screen.

  • Pebbles was there.

  • She could tell you, right?

  • Okay.

  • So I thought it was going to be a good idea to try to walk two dogs and text at the same

  • time.

  • What could go wrong with that?

  • And, you know, of course I was distracted because I was texting and the dogs got excited,

  • yanked the leash in my hand and my phone in one direction, and I had to watch my phone

  • slowly hit the ground multiple times before just landing flat on the pavement.

  • And, you know, it was an old phone, so I actually lived with the crack for a really long time,

  • and eventually got a screen and fixed it myself.

  • But I guess the moral of the story is don't try to text while walking your dogs.

  • But if you do, and you break your phone, you can always fix it yourself.

  • [Saf] What's up guys?

  • This is Saf from SuperSaf TV.

  • Phone breaking stories...well I actually have a few.

  • I've been known to drop my phones in the past.

  • Not deliberately all the time anyway.

  • But the first time I actually completely broke a smartphone was the Samsung Galaxy S4.

  • I tend to use a case pretty much most of the time, and I had the S4 for about a year, and

  • then the case kind of fell apart so I decided to go naked which was a bad idea because I

  • think within a couple of days of me doing that, I dropped it flat on it's back on a

  • hard surface and the screen just went.

  • It wasn't shattered or anything, but it just wouldn't switch on.

  • Now the cost of the repair was more than the body of the phone so I didn't really bother

  • with it.

  • And at the time I didn't know Zack, otherwise I would have definitely hit him up with some

  • help in repairing it.

  • Another interesting story of me breaking one of my phones was the iPhone 7 Plus.

  • I dropped it and although there wasn't really any visible damage, the front facing camera

  • stopped working.

  • I took it into the Apple store and they had a look at it and they saw some structural

  • damage, so they did say that I have to get a replacement phone which costs around 350

  • pounds in the UK.

  • But they said that because I had bought it from them and it hadn't been too long that

  • I had had it, they actually gave me a replacement for free.

  • Now this is why I always advise buying Apple products directly from Apple themselves.

  • It's also why I praise Apple's customer service so muchnot because I'm a fan boy.

  • Thanks for having me Zack.

  • This is Saf from SuperSaf TV, and I'll see you next time.

  • [Austin] Hey Guys!

  • This is Austin.

  • And I have never broken a phone.

  • That's a total lie.

  • I've actually broken a couple.

  • So the very first smartphone I ever broke was the original Moto X.

  • So remember, it was actually one of those fist review units I ever got.

  • So I got it straight from Motorola, I was doing my video...the day after I was go karting

  • and I left it in my pocket.

  • And it was bent.

  • The frame was completely jacked up and the screen was totally shattered.

  • So I felt kind of bad, but Motorola was cool with it, so you know...that was great.

  • Another story was...it was actually last year.

  • I actually killed an iPhone 7 Plus twice.

  • So the first time was when I was doing my video and I was doing a quick little water

  • test.

  • So I took it...this was obviously the first iPhone that was water-proof...dropped it in

  • a fish bowl, picked it up, and it started freaking out.

  • Water was inside, the screen was fogged up, specifically the actual camera was fogged

  • up.

  • So that was kind of bad.

  • But the good thing was that is dried out, until I was running across the street without

  • a case on, and it flew out of my shorts and smashed right into a curb and, again, totally

  • shattered the screen.

  • So, you know, in like the last 10 years I've broken two phones.

  • I think that's not so bad...right??

  • [Michael] I'm Michael Fisher and I have broken more phones than even those bad luck schlubs

  • on infomercials.

  • My most recent casualty wasn't a victim of dropping or shattering for a change...but

  • of drowning.

  • You've watched enough JerryRigEverything to know that the LG V30 is water-resistant, but

  • you probably also know that no phone is water-proof.

  • Well I knew that too, but I took it swimming anyway...in the salty Pacific.

  • And you know what?

  • I got some of the most fun photos and videos of that trip thanks to the V30.

  • Then I pushed my luck.

  • See, when the phone survived all that, I thought it was thanks to my careful fresh water baths.

  • I thought it could also handle a whole afternoon in a chlorinated swimming pool taking more

  • ridiculous underwater photos.

  • And it totally did....until it didn't.

  • A few seconds after leaving the pool, the display went black.

  • And with the exception of a few flickers the next day, it never came back.

  • Do I blame the phone?

  • No.

  • You're not supposed to push it that far, and I admit that.

  • Do I miss it though?

  • Heck yeah.

  • Hey Zack, two words: repair collab.

  • Think about it.

  • And thanks for having me on to share my shame.

  • [Linus Tech Tips] I think a lot of people are going to find this pretty hard to believe,

  • but I have never actually broken my daily driver phone.

  • Not in any meaningful way.

  • Like I have dropped my daily driver phone a fair bit.

  • My iPhone 6 has that really nice dent on the corner.

  • My Galaxy S8 also has a really nice dent on the corner.

  • Going all the way back, my iPhone 4 actually has some spectacular scuff marks on the back

  • piece of glass because I was actually moving at the time and I dropped it and it skidded

  • along the ground.

  • So the entire back of it has these deep scratches.

  • But I have never actually had to do a glass replacement...for one of my devices.

  • Now my wife on the other hand, she is such a prolific phone breaker.

  • She broke her S6 Active.

  • Oh, prior to that...like she broke an Active!

  • And then prior to that, when she was using a Droid DNA, the excuse was, well the baby

  • dropped it.

  • And I'm sitting here going why are you letting an infant use a phone?

  • What did you think that a 6 month old was going to do with a phone...handle it carefully?

  • They're going to chew on it, and then they're going to drop it.

  • So she breaks her Droid DNA and it takes me a while to get the replacement parts because

  • it wasn't exactly a very common model.

  • Finally it comes in, and I'm not the most experienced phone repair technician, but I'm

  • competent enough.

  • So I did manage to do a screen replacement, but it took me a little while.

  • Three days later...breaks it again.

  • That was actually when we switched her to the S6 Active.

  • Although from the earlier point in the story, we all know what a great solution that ended

  • up being.

  • So in conclusion, I actually don't break phones, but my wife...my wife does.

  • She does.

  • I did break an iPad 2.

  • Oh!

  • Oh, that was my fault.

  • Okay, so we're sitting on the couch and we're about to watch a movie.

  • And I'm sitting on the iPad and I'm done with it, so I kind of toss it onto the ground onto

  • the carpet in front of me.

  • And we get, I don't know, ten minutes into the movie...long enough to kind of forget

  • that I put it there.

  • And my wife lays down on my lap because it's a boring movie and she's probably going to

  • fall asleep and she goes, oh your keys, they're bothering me.

  • And I go, okay yeah, no problem.

  • [Tosses keys.]

  • That one was my bad.

  • But it wasn't a phone.

  • [Krystal] Hey guys, it's Krystal, and here's a couple of my phone breaking stories.

  • Let's take a little trip down memory lane.

  • So my first most memorable phone breaking story was with my Galaxy S7, right in front

  • of my house, right here.

  • And I've definitely talked about this one before.

  • This is a Note 8, but let's just pretend like it's a Galaxy S7 for the story because I don't

  • have that phone anymore.

  • I was running inside my house late at night one night.

  • I don't know why I was running inside, but I was.

  • And I tripped and fell on my brick concrete steps and there's only like three steps there,

  • but I fell anyway.

  • I scraped my knee, and instead of hurting my hand, I hurt my phone because I was holding

  • it as I was running inside.

  • And yeah, cracked the edge of it.

  • I told myself I would put a case on every phone that I have and I would never be holding

  • it while running, but I do that all the time anyways, so I never learned from that one.

  • This next phone breaking storykind of embarrassinghappened with my Nexus 6P.

  • I have my Google Pixel here so let's just pretend that it is the 6P right now.

  • It happened as I was walking out of my neighborhood Walgreen's, and it was summer 2016 when Pokemon
