Should you repair your broken phone or buy a new one?

Which is better, repairing your broken phone or buying a new one?

Almost all of us has been in the situation where a smartphone or a tablet is broken. When this happens, as frustrating as it is, you have a big decision to take. Most of us cannot spend hours or even minutes without checking our smartphone or tablet. Therefore, given the importance of this decision, our specialist technicians have come up with a guide on whether you should repair your device or replace it with another.

But isn’t a brand new device always better?

Many people think the answer to this question is very straight forward and would without hesitation tell you “Yes, of course, get a new better smartphone”. Unfortunately, the answer is not that simple. The common myth stating that new is always better is very far from the truth. For example, some new devices could have larger screens, making the phone heavier and clunkier than your current phone. Maybe a new device will drain more battery life and need charging all the time. Maybe the new models no longer has a headphone jack and you have expensive earphones that require one. Whatever it may be, just because a phone is new does not mean it is better.

Consider the cost of a repair against that of a new device

When you compare the cost of repairing broken devices to the cost of buying new ones, always check how much you’d make if you sell the broken device. Repairing a damaged device may be costly. The repairing costs may be close to the costs of purchasing a new device. However, it depends heavily on the type of damage and the part to be repaired. This kind of expensive fix is not very common, at Repair My Phone Screen, we only use the highest quality parts available and our prices are the lowest in the North West. Buying a new device can become very expensive if the only problem is a small software issue or scratch on the screen.

Time Consideration

Check how much time it would take to fix your screen. Then think how much time it would take you to setup a new device installing all your apps and running with all your settings. If the fix is a quick one that can be done on the spot while you wait for 30 minutes or so, then it is probably more efficient to go ahead and fix it.

In general, our opinion is that repairing your device is more efficient and money-saving. For the money part, more common fixes are way cheaper than replacing the device or purchasing a new one. For example, we offer screen fixes and replacement at very low prices that cannot be compared to our competitors, never mind brand new devices. Our devices are also fixed same day and posted back to you in a secure, padded box to keep your device safe and secure.
