Abdication of Responsibility: the new consumer refrain

The picture above was from the one time that I put my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 into my back pocket and sat on it. I’ll be the first to admit that I maybe need to lay off the pies a little but the break happened very easily and while the function of the device isn’t altered, the aesthetics are.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is thicker than the iPhone 6 Plus. And I also had a case on it that protected the front and the back.

I think the problem comes from people who have been used to proportionally thicker devices with a reduced fulcrum effect due to the small size of the handsets. More worrying however is the bleating from people who, while they may not have had a “big” phone before, refused to accept any responsibility for breaking their new phone. There’s a type of person who will always lie about computer problems. No, they didn’t spill milk or orange juice on their expensive laptop, it’s always smelled that way. No, they didn’t smoke beside their computer and cause it to be encrusted with smoke dust. No, they didn’t delete that file, it just happened. And the latest, the 7 mm thick phone should have been able to take the full force of my fat arse.

I’m to blame for breaking the screen of my NOTE 3. I accept the blame.
