Getting a new phone screen aren’t always necessary even with cracks to the current screen. Repairing your screen is a far more viable option on your current device, which you should take care of quickly. Here are some tips on what to do when you crack your phone screen, and when it becomes more worth it to just get a brand new screen?

What brand of phone are you using?

Each brand of phone carries its own insurance policy for damages. Also, figure out how much is covered in your current warranty or package. Usually, the type of damage and who’s at fault really doesn’t matter much. You should be covered either way for screen replacement.

Can I repair the screen myself?

This is a great route for you to avoid a huge replacement fee from the manufacturer. Unfortunately, depending on the severity, do-it-yourself repairs are usually only temporary fixes. Larger cracks can rarely be repaired without replacement, and you need to handle that as quickly as possible. Although if you did sign up for coverage, you can expect that fee will be minimized.

However, if you didn’t sign up for this coverage, you’ll have fewer options on that end. That’s why it’s a great option to have your phone looked at by a local professional. Then, they can assess the damage and how severe it is, which will then determine if you’re in need of a new screen. Otherwise, we can patch your screen and have a quick turn around to get your phone operating optimally again.
