Today, a phone is not just something you necessarily change out right away. A smartphone can do many things and is therefore gradually an expensive investment, which you will certainly fret about if breaks. However, it can be difficult to assess whether it pays to repair the phone or whether it is just as easy to buy a brand new phone.
What are the typical injuries?
Most smartphone owners experience these damages in particular:
- The phone’s touch screen or back cover has broken
- Problems with the battery
- Problems with the USB cable
- Problems with the camera
- Problems with headphones
- The phone is slow in use
Depending on how important the damaged function is for your daily use of your smartphone, despite the damage in any case, you can keep the phone even if it does not work optimally.
If the damage is covered by your warranty or warranty, you should always go to the dealer with your phone. The warranty covers for 2 years if the defect was present when you bought the phone, while the warranty from the dealer can cover many damages, but not necessarily all. Read the terms of the warranty before going down to the dealer.
How big is the damage?
If you cannot get the damage covered by either the warranty or the warranty, you have the opportunity to have the phone repaired. When considering whether to have the phone for repair, think about two things:
- Assess the actual extent of the damage.
- Think about the phone’s value today compared to when you bought it.
Typical repairs such as scratches in the glass or a bad battery can easily pay off to get sent for repair, while larger damage will most often not pay off, as it is simply cheaper to buy a brand new phone.
Be proactive-protect your phone with cover and protective foil
If you would like to take care of your phone, it’s a good idea to invest in a good cover as well. Smartphones are getting bigger – it’s nice with a big screen, but it can also become a bit uhandy to handle a phone that is hard to hold one hand. This makes the phone easier to lose and therefore easier to damage.
Invest in a good cover so that the phone can withstand falls. If you are nervous about the durability of the display, you should also invest in protective foil for this in order to be protected in the best possible way. These investments can quickly pay off if you yourself are a little fummelfingret or, for example, have children in the House who borrow the phone and drop it on the floor, as the little hands can not hold properly.
Do you need to have your smartphone repaired?
There are gradually many smartphone repairmen in the country, varying in both time of the repair, price and warranty. If you need to repair your smartphone, it is therefore a good idea to check the providers in your city, their conditions and not least their prices on the repair you need (if you are able to assess the extent of the damage yourself).
