Are New Phone Screens Worth It?

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.

For questions on whether or not it is worth it to pursue a new screen or getting your current one fixed, we’d love to speak with you. Overall, it really will depend on how long the damage has been left to linger, usually. Give us a call today to learn more!

What to Do If You Cracked Your iPhone

Cracking your iPhone is an easy way to ruin anyone’s day. However, we’re here to help and make the road to getting your phone screen fixed a smooth and convenient one.

First off, don’t panic. The best first step is to contact the company whom you purchased the phone from to see if their insurance plan covers cracked screens. If they do, great! The worst-case scenario here would be that you may have to go a few days without a phone while they fix it, but if you have an old phone handy, you can use that in the meantime.

Another option that may be more convenient for you would be to find a local repair shop such as ours to take your cracked phone to where an experienced technician can fix the screen in just hours instead of days.

If you cannot afford either of the previously mentioned options, there is always the option to sell your phone in the current state that it’s in to be able to fund buying a whole new phone.

  • Whichever option you decide to go with, be sure to back up all the data on your phone to be sure you won’t lose any important information during the repair or replacement process
  • From the time you crack your phone screen until the time you actually repair or replace it, it is a good idea to put a screen protector on so that you don’t cut your fingers
  • If you decide you would rather try fixing your phone yourself, you can buy a phone repair kit and follow online tutorials to get the job done without having to hire anyone to do it for you or get the phone replaced altogether (which may not be in your budget)

What’s Draining My Phone Battery?

Your phone batter may not be operating at full capacity. This means that even when fully charged, you aren’t getting all that you can out of your phone’s performance. If it isn’t running optimally, there’s a few main factors to what could be impacting it’s usefulness. Here’s a few things to note on your phone’s optimization and functionality.

Background apps and updates

These will limit your battery’s ability to run optimally while also making the current app you are using run more slowly or crash all together. Give your phone time to update and make sure that when using apps, you’re staying aware of which ones are still open and using data. Also, shut down the phone for the evening when you can. Give it time to reset.

Out-of-date software

When your phone comes up with an update, it’s best to apply these as soon as possible. Giving your phone the most optimal effectiveness as soon as possible will cut down the amount of lag and issues you have with basic functionality. Slow messages, lacking notifications, emails, etc. Each of these can be a hinderance to your daily routine and make using your phone much more difficult
