How To Decide Whether To Repair Or Replace Your Phone
Are you finding it difficult to decide on whether to repair or replace your faulty smartphone? Don’t worry, I am going to help you decide on whether to repair or replace your faulty smartphone.
One of the several intra-personal conflicts we have is the decision to repair or replace our mobile phones. Although people don’t see it as such, it is very serious and can even stress you up.
There are some minor damages that even a young child knows that this one needs repair not replacement. Sometimes also, there are some serious damages that the obvious solution is by replacing it.
Sometimes, the signs and factors are not too clear for you to decide on whether to repair or replace your phone. This is where I am going to help you decide on which one to go for.
Should I Repair Or Replace My Faulty Smartphone?
There are some three (3) main questions you need to ask yourself before you decide on taking any decision.
What is the problem with my smartphone?
This is one of the most important questions you need to ask yourself. What is the problem with your smartphone; is it your speaker, battery, etc.
First of all, you need to personally check to see if there’s any fault, if you can’t you can then send it to a trusted repair service to check it out for you.
What is the cost of repair against the cost of replacement?
Just as the name suggests, you need to get a quote from both the repair service (Smartfix) and the shop you will like to buy the new phone from.
If the replacement will cost just a little above the repair, I suggest you go for that one. Also, if the repair costs much lesser than the replacement, then I suggest you go for the repair.
How long does my phone have a warranty?
For every new smartphone you buy, there’s a warranty in the box. Some last two (2) years and some last more or less than that.
If you have a fault with your smartphone, you can check your warranty to see if it is still valid. If it is you can send it to them for either a free repair or a discounted repair. If you are lucky, you could even get a brand new phone.
How To Decide Whether To Repair Your Phone

- You just don’t know how to use your phone.
You can clearly see that all the points raised above are just minor issues that could be resolved by repairing your faulty smartphone.
