While smartphones are sophisticated devices, they tend to act up now and then. But the good news is that, most damaged smartphones can be fixed. Repair technicians can effectively handle issues such as cracked screen, dead battery, faulty camera, and other problems. However, you should be careful about choosing the right mobile repair or service centre. Otherwise, you might end up shopping for a new smartphone.
Today, the smartphone has become an essential device. Millions use it – in fact, India is expected to have 820 million smartphone users by 2022. The increase in the number of users has also led to the mushrooming of mobile phone repair service centres. You might find one near your workplace or house. But, can it be trusted? No, you cannot trust a repair centre’s tall claims blindly. Not all service centres can do a top-quality repair job. The one that is easy to access might not be equipped with the resources needed to handle your iPhone or OnePlus smartphone. It might turn your device into an expensive paperweight.
So, here are a few suggestions to help you find the right service centre for your damaged smartphone.
Visit the repair centre’s website
Almost all reputable mobile repair or service centres have websites these days. Find the right URL, or the web address, and visit the website of the centre. The site might be overflowing with marketing content, praising the centre’s services to the hilt. Do not believe every word that is written on the site. Look for information related to genuine parts, warranty, turnaround time, and the brand (or brands) that it handles.
- The right centre for you is the one that is focused on the smartphone brand that you are using. It will be equipped with the tools, knowhow, and other resources that are necessary for an excellent repair job.
- Genuine parts are central to fixing damaged or cracked components effectively and efficiently. So, an ideal service centre will only use a genuine part during the replacement process. Do not visit those that try to convince you that its non-genuine parts are as good as the genuine ones.
- When a service centre offers a warranty on its repair services, it is a promise that it will do a top-notch repair job. And, in case the issue does not get solved properly, it will fix it again, free of cost.
- Websites of well-known service centres usually let you know how long they will take to fix issues. However, it is possible that you might know the exact turnaround time only after technicians do a thorough check-up of your device.
Read Online Reviews
Make sure to read online reviews to confirm that the information on the website is factually correct. These reviews are written by real customers, and they let you know both the pros and cons of visiting a service centre for mobile repair. If most of the customers are not satisfied with a service centre, it is best to avoid it. Keep looking till you find the right one for your smartphone.
