Tight Budget? Smartphone Repairs Can Save You Money

For millions of people right now it’s tough to make ends meet. Between significant economic challenges and a health crisis, most of us are trying to figure out the best way to stretch the money we have to make sure we can cover our housing, food, and basic necessities. At the same time, it’s essential to have access to your phone in times like these to get critical information about your health and what’s going on locally and nationally, as well as stay in touch with your friends and family.

When something happens to your smartphone, a repair can save you a lot of money over buying a brand new phone. Here are some of the ways it is an opportunity to save.

The cost of new smartphones

The average cost to purchase a new smartphone today is close to $600, which is only slightly less than you would pay for a new laptop (those average around $700). Smartphones are really just very small laptops with the capability to call people over wireless networks, after all. But unlike your laptop, you probably take your phone everywhere—and we do mean everywhere. That means it’s far more likely to suffer damage from being dropped accidentally, tossed carelessly into a tote bag or crowded purse, or left behind in a public restroom stall.

Except for the last scenario where you probably lost your phone for good and you’ll have to purchase a new one, a smartphone repair is going to provide you with the same quality phone that you would get brand new but for a lot less money.

The cost of repairs

Unlike purchasing a new phone, smartphone repairs are actually really affordable. They are also really easy to do when you take them somewhere with trained professionals who can get the job done. You can get repairs for almost anything that breaks on your phone, including:

  • Cracked or broken screens
  • Damaged charging ports
  • Damaged speakers
  • Camera repairs
  • Back glass on Samsung models
  • WiFi connectivity issues
  • Battery charging issues

The average cost of these repairs depends on the model of phone that you have (newer phones will cost more), but it’s much lower than the cost to purchase a brand new phone. For example, getting glass replaced on an iPhone 8 is only $78 but buying a brand new one will set you back several hundred dollars.
