Mobile phone screen repair is OmniTech’s most common repair since 2007.
But why has screen repairs become so popular and how does this relate to the size of our phone? Does size matter?
The size of the phone has shifted from big to small to big again as the screen display has increased in size – since the first-ever phone was invented in 1983.
Let’s start with the first-ever portable mobile phone:
Motorola DynaTAC 8000X.
3300.0 x 898.0 x 445.0 mm and weighed almost 1kg!
For the most elite and the start of a revolution and a focus on portability and communication.
From 1999-2006 the trend was on the go.
Nokia 7110 launched in 1990
125 x 53 x 24 mm
& Blackberry Pearl 8100 was launched in 2006
107 x 50 x 14.5 mm
Mobile phones at this time began to increase their features with the release of phone photography and video calling. However, the idea of a “pocket phone” was still the largest status symbol.
But it wasn’t until 2007-2010 that features began to expand and become more important.
iPhone was one of the first to introduce touchscreen controls. We were rid of traditional buttons and expanded from phones not only being about communication but our life companions.
Today, in 2020 the latest iPhone 12 screen is now manufactured to include a ceramic shield on the screen to greatly improve drop & scratch resistance.
This is why screen repair is the most demanded mobile phone repair service at OmniTech today and why we also offer a range of the latest screen protectors for purchase.
