The unimaginable happened: You weren’t paying attention, dropped your iPhone and now the screen is shattered. Actually, it is imaginable and happens all the time. According to ABC News, 30% of Americans will damage their iPhones within the next 12 months. This all too common occurrence begs the question: Should you have the smartphone fixed or purchase a new one? As part of Manhattan’s leading provider of iPhone repair, cell phone repair and computer maintenance, the technicians at I Love iPhone Repairs point out that maintenance is often the savvier choice.
Why is that? There are three major reasons:
- Relative Cost: Unless you qualify for an upgrade, the price of a new iPhone costs up to $450, whereas repairs typically run in the $100 or less range.
- The Environment: Thrown away iPhones, smartphones and other gadgets account for 50 million tons of e-waste a year. While you can safely recycle old phones, an even more conscious choice is to have your current one fixed.
- Personalization: While most devices allow cloud storage to back up your contacts, photos and videos, you can save yourself the hassle of re-uploading all of this material into a new phone by having it fixed. Additionally, you’ve already personalized your current phone to suit your needs, a process through which you’d have to go again if you got a new one.
Whether you’re having cosmetic issues or problems with functionality, I Love iPhone Repair will be able to take care of it, usually within 30 minutes or less.
