Here we are with some tips on when it is better to repair your phone and when to replace it.
- YOU WANT THE NEXT BIG THING
If your phone is aesthetically perfect and is also functional, but you are tempted to upgrade just because there is something new and better in the market, what you can do is resist your urge especially if you are tight on the pocket. Try to pick up some snazzy new case and upgrade it with the latest apps to give your gadget a new look at a small price tag.
- THE SCREEN IS CRACKED
If you love your phone but cannot deal with the cracked screen, simply get your screen replaced. Chances are that it is going to be a heck lot cheaper than getting a new piece and you can use the money on something that will protect your screen from getting cracked again like getting a glass screen protector or a protective casing.
- YOU RUN OUT OF STORAGE
If you don’t have any more room to store apps, videos, music or images, get a larger storage card or move the stuff you don’t use very often to your PC for safekeeping. This will save you bucks that you would otherwise spend on a new phone and give you more space on your phone.
- YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO USE YOUR PHONE
If you have had your phone for quite some time and you still want to throw it against the wall, it might be a really bad fit for you. If you find it too much of a hassle to understand or too complicated, it is better to replace it. There is maybe a right device out there for you.
- IT IS SO BROKEN THAT YOU CANT USE IT
If your phone is broken so much that it can’t be used as a phone, has extensive water damage, broken internals, or shattered camera lenses, there is no way to save it, and repairing costs double the amount in which you could buy a brand new phone. The brand new phone will also give you a warranty against further damage.
- YOUR PHONE DUSTS FLIES WHEN IT RINGS
If your phone is so old that you can’t play Candy Crush without freezing and then restarting, or you have to flip it and bash it against the wall every time you want to use it, fortunately or unfortunately, you need to treat yourself to a new phone.
