Repairing your device can save you a great deal of time and hassle. Going through insurance requires to have a new device sent to you, and then you send your device back. Most people think the replacement device is brand new, but it is often a refurbished phone. If you break a phone during the weekend, you might not get a replacement until the middle of the following week. Replacing your device will also require moving all your data over and remembering your passwords to sign into your various accounts. That on top of the amount of time you will need to spend with your carrier, the average 45 minutes for a repair will save you a ton of time.
A broken screen or a short battery life is something some people will live with. Even if they have cut their finger on a crack or must carry a charger with them all day, they won’t get it fixed until they absolutely must. Clients often misjudge how expensive a repair is, and because of that will deal with these issues longer then they have too. Getting that battery replaced or screen fixed can significantly improve your experience with your device.
That Small Crack Can Grow
Once there is a crack in the screen of the device, it is only a matter of time before it grows into something much more. If the device is dropped again, the display can shatter making the phone even more difficult use. A damaged screen could also allow dust and moisture inside the device. This could cause a whole host of other issues. Getting your phone fixed could prevent future headaches!
There are exceptions to the rule, but overall repairing your device is more affordable than replacing it. Screen repairs for devices can range from $80 to $350, depending on the make, model, and age of the phone. Smartphones these days can range from $200 to over $1,000. Even if you are eligible for an upgrade, you should weigh whether the new features justify the extra money.
Kids these days are growing up with tech all around them. If appropriately used, smartphones and tablets will entertain and educate them. We often forget that all of the information compiled on the web is available at our fingertips. However, kids are hard on electronics. A decent number of the screen repairs we complete on phones and tablets are kid related. It is entirely understandable that you may not want to replace the iPad your child just broke with a new one. Repairing old devices also can serve as hand me downs to your children. This way they have access to a device, but also will learn the responsibility with it.
