iSmash has rather cruelly revealed the names of what it terms the UK’s clumsiest people according to lists of people who come into its shops with a sad face and a smashed phone screen.
Men’s names make up the top-three clumsy fools, with James, David and Paul most likely to drop and smash their precious smartphone. Indeed the butter-fingered top 10 includes nine men’s names, and the top 20 has 18 cack-handed males.
Sarah is the clumsiest female name (at #4), with Emma (#13) and Laura (#21) coming second and third in the women’s phone-fumbling Olympics.
iPhones take the top nine places for the most frequently repaired phones, followed by the Samsung.
