An analysis of UK smartphone repair data has revealed that Leeds, named "The Best Place in Britain to Live" back in 2003 is the most accident prone of all UK cities for smartphone repairs, followed by Nottingham and Bristol.
The study analysed data from 160,000 online search results for smartphone repairs, that shows massive regional and city-by-city variations in the repair types undertaken across the nation. These vary from smashed screens, scratched handsets, busted batteries and water damage.
Compiling that data into a list of the 25 most accident prone cities, Northern England has the highest concentration. (See map). Surprisingly, cities expected to be listed such as London (Listed 23), Swansea (Listed 24) and Wakefield (Listed 25) appear the home for careful smartphone owners.
Julian Shovlin, founder of iSmash says; “Our smartphones are one of the most important electrical devices in our lives, we at iSmash always recommend to our customers that they invest in protective cases and screen protectors to prevent these mishaps from occurring”
