repairing vs replacing your iphone whats better
A broken iPhone may leave you devastated or even disconnected you from your work. It even gets worse if you do not have an idea of what’s wrong with your iPhone and the only next best solution would be to visit a phone shop, pick a new phone and start all over again.
However, replacing your broken iPhone may not be a permanent solution as the new iPhone may suffer the same fate as the old one and the replacement costs may increase significantly over time.  Making this tough decision of whether to replace or repair your iPhone should be based on the following issues:

Parts To be Repaired

An iPhone, just like any other devices can fall and break, crack or even drop in water leading to water-related damages. With time, its battery capacity tends to fade away and this is reason enough to consider replacing or repairing an iPhone. Some parts have affordable and authentic replacement options such as broken screens and batteries. If your broken parts can be repaired or replaced at a cost significantly lower than buying a new iPhone then this might be your best solution as you would end up with a better version of your old iPhone.

Cost to be incurred

The costs of replacing or even repairing the phone may vary from one iPhone repairs provider to the other. The option to replace or repair an iPhone should be based on the total costs to be incurred if one repaired the iPhone’s broken parts or just bought a new iPhone.

Turnaround Time

Depending on the damage to your iPhone, repairs may take a few hours to a couple of days to be completely safe and secure. The time a phone takes to be repaired can determine whether to replace or repair it. If the duration taken to repair an iPhone may be more than the duration taken to acquire a new iPhone, then consider replacing your iPhone and vice versa.

Who is To Repair The iPhone?

Repairing some parts of an iPhone yourself can be cheap compared to replacing the phone or having a professional fix it. Such parts include the battery, a broken screen, and the speaker. Despite the lack of a repair manual, a repairs kit, a few DIY videos on iPhone’s repairs and a little self-confidence can be all you need to replace that broken part on your iPhone. However, not all parts can be replaced without the help of a professional and in case you do not want to learn your way around your iPhone or you do not want to make further damages on the device you should either purchase a new device or have it repaired by a professional.
Once you make the tough decision and you settle on repairing your iPhone rather than replacing it, you should consider Device Expert, iPhone repair specialists in Perth as we have experienced repair specialists that will repair your broken part or replace the underperforming part at an affordable rate making the device brand new again.

tips protect phone screen
The screen is one of the most vulnerable areas of a smartphone. It’s delicate, breaking it or even a simple crack makes the phone look unsightly. No one wants that. This blog post brings you best tips on how to keep your phone screen safe. Try them to retain the beauty of your iPhone, Samsung or any other smartphone.

Invest In a Glass Protector

If you are using a smartphone, this accessory is a must-have. Some vendors refer to it as a tempered-glass screen protector. A glass protector is a thin film that is normally stuck on top of the phone’s screen to protect the main glass from any potential harm. Although many glass protectors are made of plastic, they go a long way in protecting your phone’s glass from breaking.
As suggested in the name, screen guards are soldiers that protect the screen of your phone from scratches, breaking and the like. With a screen guard in place, all potential harm causes an impact on the protector but your phone remains safe.  Smartphone screen guards come in different sizes for different smartphones and are easy to install and replace in case of damage.

Use a Microfiber to Clean Your Phone

Many people use wet towels or napkins; fabrics they would consider ‘soft’ when cleaning the phone screen.  The reality is, though they might feel soft on the skin, these fabrics are not gentle on a phone screen and could be beginning of your phone screen damage. For less than $10, you can invest in a neat pack of microfiber. Use this fabric to gently clean your phone in circles.

Quit Typing On Your Phone As You Walk

Whether it is replying that quick text, or searching a contact, don’t do it while walking. This is a bad habit and many people are guilty of it. Aside from risking dropping your phone, you could end up tripping or walking right into someone else and that is quite annoying.

Keep Your Phone Away From Water

Water is an enemy of many electronic gadgets, smartphones are no exception. It is easy to think that since your phone has been described as water resistant, that your case is different. I bring you some news; even the water resistant phones like the Sony Xperia XZ and iPhone 7 have a limited ingress protection. They have all been tested and proven to last in water for given periods of time and for specific water depths. That said, why risk?

If It Does Not Fit In Correctly, Do Not Slide Your Phone into Your Pocket

Many smartphones are around 5 inches and above, clearly, they do not fit into many pockets. Nonetheless, many of us like sliding them in while walking or when listening to some music. This habit poses a potential danger to your phone’s screen because it can easily slide out of the pocket and hit the ground screen first causing unwanted damage to your phone screen. Another bad habit to avoid is placing the phone in the back pocket, forgetting it’s actually there and sitting on it. This causes an impact on all the breakable parts of your phone, in many cases, the screen is the first victim.

Buy a Flip Cover for Your Phone

There is a trending notion that slim phones are cool. Agreed, but why go for ‘coolness’ at the expense of your hard earned cash? They might look old-fashioned but flip covers offer general protection to your phone. Nowadays, there are flip covers designed for specific phone models and you can, therefore, pick one whose fit is just right.
In the event that your phone still gets damaged, do not hesitate to contact us. We have specialists who will help you in case of repairs or accessory replacements.

used iphone
Buying a used iPhone can either turn out to be a saving or a costly purchase. In fact, sometimes buying a used iPhone is more expensive than buying a new one. How so? Often when people buy a used phone they only consider the surface problems such as a cracked screen. This is a mistake, there may be deeper problems with the phone that need to be replaced and are expensive. However, this is not always the case. In our new post, we discuss what to look out for when considering purchasing a used iPhone.

Consider the Current Condition

When buying a used phone, always examine the current condition of the phone. Does it still look relatively new? Is it roughened up against the edges? These are important factors to look out for because it can signify the lifeline of the phone. However, just because an iPhone is in a poor condition doesn’t mean it’s not functional or does not work. If you are going to be purchasing a used phone, you may as well buy one that still looks presentable.

 Don’t Buy a Fake Phone

How exactly do you spot a fake iPhone? Essentially, you want to look at the back side of the phone and ensure it says, ‘Designed by Apple in California’. If this is not apparent, the iPhone, may be fake. Another way to check if the iPhone is fake is by examining the OS, by going to Settings > General > About and look at the version. This is usually a dead giveaway as it confirms its supported by iOS software.

 Check the Camera

Whenever you are in the process of buying a used iPhone, always check the camera and ensure the quality is up to standard. Also, check the video quality to confirm that everything is still intact and working properly. Often when buying a used phone, the original Apple sensor within the camera has either been damaged or has been removed. This will be apparent by the quality of the phots the phone can take.

 Check the Battery Life

To check the battery life of an iPhone, turn the brightness up to 100% and turn on the WiFi and Bluetooth. Then, use the phone’s apps and make a few calls. If the battery has dropped rapidly by 5% in a few minutes, there may be a battery issue. There are multiple battery checker apps within the app store that can notify you of the performance of your battery if you want to have a better understanding of how well it’s working.

Motion Stills
