Disadvantage of Using Touch Screen Phones


Hello Morblack.

Touchscreen phones are really "in" nowadays.  Having a screen that occupies the entire length and width of your phone gives it a lot of flexibility.  Part of the screen can become a keypad for quickly tapping out text messages or E-mail, it can become the game screen of your favorite mobile game and it can become a small TV screen for watching movies on the go.

The biggest disadvantage of touchscreen phones is the screen itself.  Being made of glass, it is prone to breakage.  A drop even from a low height can shatter the glass.  You can't put it in your pants pocket when wearing tight jeans.  Also, don't expect your phone to stay shiny and spotless as handling will definitely leave plenty of smudges on the screen surface.

Hope this helps!
