Has your Samsung phone recently suffered damage and are you wondering what to do? Your options will include:
- Calling a phone repair shop
- Insurance claims
- DIY repair
In this article, we will cover the above to help you figure out what to do.
Call a repair shop to fix your phone
Repairs shops consist of a team of professional technicians who can fix your phone whether the screen is cracked, your phone has suffered water damage, or other issues. The good news with repair shops is that you can have your Samsung back in as little as half an hour. That’s roughly the time of a lunch break! There are other options, such as sending your phone in via mail, but the time it takes for your phone to return will be longer. This option is usually for those who do not have a phone repair shop nearby.
What is the cost to have my phone repaired?
Repair service for your Samsung can cost anywhere between $100 and $400. If your Samsung’s screen is broken, you can get it replaced quickly between thirty minutes and an hour. Check with the repair shop to see if they offer warenties. This will help you if your phone screen breaks again before the warranty period is up. Some repair shops don’t fix certain models of Samsung phones. In this case, you will need to call and confirm with a repair shop whether or not they will work on your model. Sometimes your specific model may not be listed on their website but call the company anyway just to double check. Many times they do offer it.
Before you hire a repair shop to work on your Samsung mobile phone, it’s very important to check and see the company’s reviews and ranking. You should also make sure the technician working on your phone has the qualifications to work on your phone. Since you will be investing money ($100 to $400) you really want to make sure the technician knows what they’re doing and can give you amazing outcomes.
Now let’s move on to our next option.
Filing an insurance claim for a broken Samsung mobile phone
Not everyone has phone insurance, but if you so happen to, then this is a great option for you. Even if you end up having to mail your phone, having your phone repaired for cheap will be worth waiting longer. But oftentimes, you can still get same-day screen repair if a repair store nearby qualifies.
In some cases, your insurance plan will even replace your phone, but you might end up paying more. Your insurance, for instance, might only charge $20 to $40 for a screen repair but they might charge $200 for a phone replacement.
Now our final option is about doing it yourself rather than going to a repair shop to have professional do the work for you.
Should you do a DIY fix on your Broken Samsung Phone?
There’s no yes or not answer to this but whether or not you should really depends on your knowledge, skills, and how bad the damage is. This option can seemingly be the cheaper option but in reality, the price can come to a lot more than a professional job, depending on whether or not you damage your Samsung further during the DIY project.
Purchasing a screen replacement and phone parts is easy, but mantling and dismantling is a whole different story. You need to make sure you know what you’re doing before diving into such a project. You can replace your Samsung’s cracked screen. Overall you might end up spending the same amount of money on a DIY project. In that case, it makes the most sense to go to a professional for help.
