9th Phone in 2 years...broken in 4 days

H left his company phone on the train and got a replacement on Monday.  Thursday he came home in a foul mood and I said nothing to him, in fact I made plans and went out after dinner.  Yesterday (Friday) he was charging his new work phone, only 4 days in his possession, and I saw that it already  had a cracked screen.  Now I assume his super nasty mood on Thursday was related to the broken phone. 

I cannot understand why, if something is a recurrent problem, H is unable or unwilling to change the way he does things in order to avoid disaster.  I understand that things happen, but come on already!!
