Cell phones have become an integral part of our daily lives. As well as being a practical means of communication, they can be used as alarm clocks, diaries, reminders, audio and video players, and even games. And these are just the basic uses, because the many interesting applications that are regularly being developed make them even more important in our lives. In short, we can’t do without them! So what happens when they’re damaged? Should they be repaired or replaced? For our part, we recommend that you opt for repair whenever possible. We’ll tell you why.
What are the advantages of having your cell phone repaired rather than replaced?
Repairing a cell phone is much more economical, practical and environmentally friendly than buying a new one.
The cost of a repair is usually much lower than the price of a new cell phone of the same model. The reason is simple! By opting for repair, you choose to correct a specific problem instead of replacing the entire unit.
Keep your habits
Sometimes it’s hard to get used to a new device. The interface, the features and the applications… you were already used to your old phone. This increases the risk of mishandling, which can have more or less serious consequences. So repairing your damaged smartphone instead of buying a new one can help you avoid these inconveniences, as well as the discomfort of switching.
Preserving the environment
The manufacture of a cell phone requires an enormous amount of energy and natural resources, the exploitation of which is harmful to nature in the medium and long term. So having your smartphone repaired instead of buying a new one means reducing your carbon footprint on the planet. At the same time, you’re helping to reduce electronic waste, which is also harmful to the ecosystem and the soil.
Increase cell phone time
Often, simply repairing (or replacing) a cell phone component is enough to extend its lifespan. For example, a device that still functions normally, but whose battery, screen or charging circuit is damaged. Once the problem has been solved, the smartphone returns to its former capabilities and performance.
Many users are not yet accustomed to storing their data in the cloud. They store their music, photos and personal and professional files in their phone’s memory. In this case, it’s much better to opt for repair, as data transfers can be difficult and time-consuming, especially as there is a risk of corrupting certain files.
Should you have your cell phone repaired by a professional?
In the event of a technical problem, and if the device is still under warranty, repairs are free of charge if you return it to the manufacturer. You can also try to carry out the repairs yourself, if you’re a handyman by nature. However, this is a risky option, since the slightest handling error could aggravate the damage and cost you a lot more. You may even end up having to buy a new device.
What’s more, it’s sometimes difficult to find the parts you need on the retail market. That’s why we always recommend that you entrust repairs to a qualified and experienced professional.
