Phone screens are manufacturers new homework

Since smartphones became a thing in 2008, there has always been at least one component about them that leaves a lot to be desired. This component is usually the key focus for Research and Development and a huge selling point for the manufacturers who crack it.
For the longest time, this component has been the phone battery. Up until now, smartphone batteries have only been good for a few hours a day and have kept many people plugged into the power socket so as to keep enjoying all the perks that come with having a smart phone.
The likes of Tecno, Oppo and Huawei seem to have cracked the code of a long lasting battery where some now have batteries that can give users close to 48hrs of power and for those whose work is majorly online or who spend most of the day online, that is a major win.
We also had a period where manufactures focused on the size of the phone with everyone trying their level best to out compete the other. Motorola was known for going slim before most companies reached that level.

But now, almost all smartphone manufactures are now focusing their energy and creativity onto the screens to either make them nice looking or stronger.
The current trend with smartphone manufacturers is to have the largest, brightest screen with as small bezels as possible. Samsung has mastered the art of pushing the phone screen to the edge. While this not only makes the phone look great, but it also makes it very delicate and even more expensive to replace when it breaks.

Once a large enough number of phones get these huge edge to edge displays, users will get tired of paying premiums to replace the screens and the battle to create the strongest phone screen will begin.
Nokia seems go have prepared for this already with their new latest phones but there is no telling how other manufacturers will handle the issue of stronger, more durable edge to edge phone screens. We will have to wait and see.
