With Apple releasing the new iPhone 14 and with Black Friday and Christmas just around the corner, you might feel tempted to buy a new phone instead of looking into smartphone repair. However, this begs the question for smartphone owners – which is best: repair vs replace? And is it really worth it to buy a new phone?

If you have a broken Apple or Samsung device, here are a few questions to ask yourself before splashing out and buying a new phone.

Always check your warranty

Both Apple and Samsung phones come with a manufacturer’s warranty and in some cases, you may have opted to extend your warranty with products like Apple Care. If this is the case, always check if your device is still covered under warranty. This can make certain repairs free of charge.

Did you know, using fix2U to repair your device won’t void your manufacturer’s warranty? This gives you the freedom to choose the most cost-effective repairer!

How old is your phone?

Although buying a new phone can be a fun and exciting experience, think about how old your phone is. If you have a relatively new model, buying new might not feel like that much of an upgrade and may not be worth all that cash!

Ask yourself if the upgrade will significantly improve the product over the version, you already have and if not, we recommend opting for a much more cost-effective device repair.

Weigh up the cost

This is the most obvious one. In most cases, it’s less expensive to repair something rather than to replace it. If you smash your windscreen, you don’t replace the whole car; instead, you have the windscreen repaired. A phone should be no different. Repairing a cracked screen, replacing the battery, or fixing the camera can be surprisingly easy, cost-effective and can improve the life of your device.

Consider the downtime

Whether you’re buying new or sending your phone away for repair, there’s normally some downtime. Instead of jumping on a waiting list for that latest device or sending your phone away for repair,  fix2U comes to you across Australia. Most repairs are completed in less than 30 minutes and can often be completed on the same day as your booking. You can continue going about your life while we repair your device so it’s as good as new.

Getting Mindful About Sustainability

More and more we’re becoming mindful about what we put into landfill and tech devices should be the same! Tech giants have often encouraged upgrading each year which has amounted to over 151 million mobile phones heading to landfill every year.

There’s no reason to replace your phone if it’s able to do everything you need it to. For sustainability of the planet Earth, a simple repair makes sense if it fixes the damage effectively.
