4 Things You Can (and Should) Repair on Your Phone

Dec 20, 2019

When something goes wrong with a smartphone, many people instantly go into panic mode. You may even head straight to your local carrier store or retailer and immediately purchase a brand new phone—after all, who can afford to be without their phone for a long period of time? The problem with this reaction is that it could lead to spending several hundred (maybe even more than $1,000) on a new phone unnecessarily because whatever was wrong could have been fixed for a lot less. Here are four common problems smartphone users encounter that can be repaired.

Common issues with smartphones that you can repair instead of buying a new one.

1: Battery

There are few things in life these days more frustrating than a dead smartphone battery, and if your phone’s battery is draining more quickly than normal, or won’t seem to hold a charge for more than a couple of hours, you may be inclined to trade in that phone for a new phone. That could be a big mistake, since the cost to replace the battery in your device is probably only a fraction of the cost of a new device. Even for some of the latest iPhone or Android models, the cost of a new battery is usually less than $100.

2: Screens

So you dropped your phone, and even though it only fell a couple feet to the floor it hit at just the wrong angle and the screen shattered. Now you’re debating whether you can look through all those cracks and still use the phone, or you have the money for a new phone. But you actually have a third option, and that is to repair the screen. Places like Bad Apple can repair that cracked screen, so it’s just like new (or even better). It’s quick too, so you’ll have your phone back in no time and won’t have to spend hundreds.

3: Charging Port

If you can’t recharge your phone because the port is damaged, you’re dead in the water and you have to get a new phone, right? Wrong. A good repair shop can fix that charging port so it will charge just like when it first came out of the box.

4: Camera

The average person in the U.S. takes ____ photos with their smartphone every _____, so what do you do when the camera is broken? Whether it’s the front camera (for all your essential selfies) or the rear camera (for capturing your kids, friends, or fur babies), the camera is actually a pretty easy item to fix. It will cost a little more than some other smartphone repairs, but no matter what model you have, it will be less than a brand new one.
