7.5 million unlucky Britons are walking around with a cracked phone screen at any one time*
So, how vulnerable are smartphones to damage?
Out of warranty or accidental damage repairs can be more than half of the initial cost of a device – and 1 in 6 smartphone users are using a device today with a broken screen because of this cost. Insurance excesses are rising too and can be up to £100 for damage claims. A cracked screen will eventually lead to complete phone failure.
Apple takes up to 8 business days to repair a cracked screen**
There’s a wealth of applications that allow you to do more on the move than ever before. We feel naked or lost without having our phones- how would anyone get hold of you? How would you capture moments? How would you find out information on demand?

The average smartphone cost has risen exponentially over the past few years, so protecting this investment is more important than ever. Smartphones are now vital to productivity and the ease of access to information. If a phone breaks, how detrimental would that be to your life?
WHY PROTECT WITH TECH21?
FlexShock is ultra efficient at absorbing and dissipating impact force. It is thin and lightweight whilst providing extremely high levels of protection. To make sure that you can trust the performance claims we make, we’ve worked in partnership with NPL in London to develop a unique methodology for testing phone cases. This methodology sets out how to perform the tests accurately and reliably to enable standard and consistent results to be achieved:
- First, we accurately measure the case’s weight and thickness.
- Then, because impact force is what causes the damage, we perform sophisticated drop tests to see how much force each case actually absorbs.
- Finally, we measure its durability by drop testing it 20 times – because what good is a case that only offers protection for the first drop?
