To Repair or Replace?

If your phone has been damaged, you have a choice between either repairing it or replacing it. Although both options have their fair share of upsides and downsides, there are also convincing reasons to believe that repairing your phone is the better choice under most circumstances.


Here are some reasons why:

Data

Your phone contains your data, which is probably one of your most precious possessions. As a result, if you are going to replace your phone, you need to save as much of your data as possible before making sure that it is scrubbed clean. Unfortunately, this can be a complicated and time-consuming process. Even worse, you might not be able to save all of your data because of compatibility issues, which can be heart-breaking if it captured some of your most memorable moments.

Price

Unless your phone is so damaged that it is next to unsaveable, chances are good that repairing your phone will be a lot cheaper than replacing it on short notice. In part, this is because new phones are expensive, particularly if you want something with the latest features instead of settling for whatever you can get. However, it is worth mentioning that phone accessories also come at a cost.

Convenience

It takes a fair amount of time and effort to get used to a new phone so that you can get the best user experience. If you are someone who likes the tried-and-true, this can be a significant inconvenience. In fact, you run the risk of never getting used to your new phone because some phones just aren't suited for some people, which can mean a rather expensive do-over with the same risks. These issues are particularly problematic if you use a lot of apps since finding them and installing them on your new phone means more time and effort that need to be poured into the adjustment process.

Further Considerations

With that said, it is important to note that there are times when it is better to replace your phone than to repair it. If you are not sure, please contact us for the expertise and experience that you need to make the right choice for you.
