Fixing Your Phone at Home vs. Turning to the Fix My Phone Experts
As much as you may think you can fix a phone at home, also known as a DIY fix, you may want to think twice. Many first time repairers will make mistakes, some worse than others, and most of the time these mistakes cost more than the original issue. It is never recommended to do at home repairs unless you are an expert or have the experience and know how to correctly perform the repair without causing other damages along the way.
At Fix My Phone, a large number of our clients are people who tried the at home method. Unfortunately, by the time they came to us, their phone was often more damaged than the initial problem.
The Problem with Fix At Home Phone Repairs
The biggest problem with at home fixes is causing more damage. There are hundreds of blogs and online pages dedicated to at home phone repairs but hardly any show you the final results or at least those which can be proven. Being in this industry for years we have seen it all, from scratching or cracking the screen to broken internal components or accidentally getting liquid inside when the phone was disassembled. In the end it is always recommended to bring the phone into the Fix My Phone experts; we have the experience and the knowledge to fix it correctly the first time.
A Phone’s Electrical Components are Sensitive
The phones of today are a lot more durable than in the past, but a lot of this durability is retained in the phone casing and screen. When a phone is taken apart the risk of getting dirt, dust, sand or even liquid increases. Inside the phone remain delicate components and intricate pieces which require a sensitive approach to fixes. Even the smallest slip or too much pressure applied, could cause permanent damage to the component and device as a whole.
What About the “At-Home” Fix Kits
At-home fix kits have become more popular, yet they often are more costly than expert phone repair services and can only be used once. Even more so, many of these kits come with cheap tools or fail to include spare parts. One slip with one of these cheap screwdrivers or pair of tweezers can cause serious problems and further damages to repair. Another common occurrence of these kits is the stripping of small screws which hold your phone together; this often happens because the screw driver or extra screws are not a perfect fit.
