HTC 10 broken screenWarning: no picture, second hand story. Something interesting happened to my wife’s HTC 10 the other day. The screen cracked while the phone was sitting on a desk, untouched.

She’d texted someone, placed the phone down on the desk, looked at a response text, looked back and the entire screen from top speaker to bottom and side to side had cracked.

What we worked out was that the phone had been dropped two days prior, probably developed a small crack, and then some combo of heat, vibrator motor, potential battery bulge, and demons managed to take an invisible crack and turn it into something that covered three quarters of the phone.

OK, maybe that was only interesting to me, however if you ever run across a phone screen suddenly exploding it might not be your coworkers screwing with you or your kid’s fault.

Alternately wife just wants an upgrade.
