The study reveals the most common reasons why you need to put away your smartphone

It’s Friday so you might be ready to hear a startling stat. First, we would like you to guess how many smartphones will be released this year. Well, according to Green smartphones, 5.3 billion devices will be disposed of in 2022. Heck, we can remember when the active number of smartphones wasn’t even close to that number.

The number one reason why phones malfunction is because they stop charging

The guys and gals at Green Smartphone were curious about the reasons why consumers ignore their phones. In other words, what are the most common reasons for broken smartphones? using that Google, they decided to find out which issues were getting the most complaints. And at the top of the list is the phone’s inability to charge that sends a third of discarded phones to the Secaucus landfill next to Jimmy Hoffa’s remains. And that makes sense. After all, a phone that can’t be charged is useless.

The most common reason why a phone has stopped charging is because the charging port is full of dirt or debris; Using compressed air may help you clean the port. Before throwing this phone in the trash, you might consider changing the battery or using a different cable or plug. But if you’re looking for an excuse to upgrade (“Sorry honey, I have to get a new phone because my phone won’t charge anymore. We can defer insulin purchases for 24 months, right?), this phone should work. And if you have a problem… With your spouse, just show him/her this article.

The study revealed that a broken touch screen is the next most likely cause of time-of-death contact on a phone. Again, this makes sense because once your touchscreen can no longer register your touch, there’s not much you can do with it. And the touch screen is such a sensitive part of a smartphone that unless you have it covered by a screen protector, it is exposed and ready to shatter with a single bump. This was the reason cited by 10% of those who buried their smartphone. The next most common reason why consumers discharge their smartphones at 9% of the total is that the speaker no longer works.

What is the reason for retiring your previous phone?

When you think about it, losing the speakers on your phone is no easier than losing the touch screen. No sound, no calls. No music or mobile games. Not good. Related to broken speakers, which make up 9% of the most common causes of phone breakage, is the tendency of a particular smartphone to overheat. Most phones get hot every now and then, but constantly burning your hands while trying to place a call isn’t okay.

The fifth most likely reason for a broken smartphone, which takes up 8% of the top 13 causes, is a broken microphone. This is related to a broken touch screen and a broken speaker. Making and receiving calls can be difficult without a working microphone.

The next three reasons why a phone is broken, which each take 7% of the total, include a battery that drains too quickly, a camera that doesn’t work, and the inability to connect to Wi-Fi. A fast draining battery may be a software issue, but it also appears on older phones that are ready to be retired. If you’re not running beta and your phone is getting old, it’s time to do the human thing and get a new device. Honestly, we expected battery complaints to be higher on the list.

The ninth most common reason why a phone is dead is that bluetooth is not working (4% of the total). With more and more wireless Bluetooth earbuds and non-cellular smartwatches in use, this issue will be enough for some (maybe more than you think) to throw off the daily driver.

The following two problems make up 2% of the most common causes of smartphone outages and are often connected. Whether the volume button is not working or the power button is broken, it rarely stops anyone from using their phone.

Two less likely reasons to throw away your current phone, both of which only happen 1% of the time, are faulty GPS and the inability to use wireless charging.
