In the Drop-zone: Reliability in the tech evolution

As devices evolve, advancements in functionality and performance often lead to reductions in size and weight. However, this miniaturization can make protective outer layers more susceptible to damage, especially if the device is dropped onto a hard surface.

And if it can be dropped, it will be dropped

This may seem obvious, but it’s important to remember that we don’t always handle things with care – to err is human.

People have always dropped stuff, and will always be dropping stuff. Some of you are probably reading this between the cracks on your phone screen. Some of you are reading this on a screen protected by a protective case or sleeve – because you know that you will eventually drop your phone.

You chose to rely on a protective case or sleeve to help protect your phone from damage when it falls. You did not rely on the phone manufacturer nor your own hands, but reliability was a major factor.

Long story short: by prioritizing reliability, manufacturers can stay ahead of the competition and achieve long-term success in the dynamic portable device industry.

Heina testers for determining reliability

Heina Testers are widely used by various high-tech companies around the world; start-up companies, mobile device manufacturers, scientific device manufacturers, protective case manufacturers – whenever there is a need to test and determine the overal reliability of a product.
