If you’re in need of help with phone repairs but aren’t sure where to start, the good news is that some repairs are more common than others, and are easy to get sorted.
For smartphone users, many of us are often a little embarrassed to admit just how much we rely on them. From social media, internet banking, navigation and even finding love – if you can think of it, there’s usually an app for it. While the perks of having a camera and a calculator in our pocket at all times are pretty swell, it’s the tiny details of smartphones that truly make them invaluable when it comes to improving the quality of our day to day lives.
Like all machines, unfortunately smartphones aren’t immune from the occasional breakdown or repair job. Many users immediately panic at the thought of having to replace their smartphone, and the sizable price tag that comes with a new one. In the event that your smartphone isn’t looking or functioning as it’s supposed to, the good news is that specialists in phone repairs can often provide an affordable solution.
Before you march off to buy a new smartphone out of defeat or frustration with your existing one, be sure to explore all of your options first through a unique provider that specialises in phone repairs.

Battery Replacements – Many smartphone users fall into the trap of thinking that their device is on it’s way out, but in reality the solution is often as simple as replacing it’s battery. Even phones as fresh as three years old may show signs of battery damage, which presents as not charging as efficiently or consuming battery a lot faster than it once did.
Cracked Screens – If you’ve somehow managed to smash the front glass screen or the back housing on your smartphone, removing the screen and adding the replacement is slow work and takes some delicate manoeuvring. Even finding the right size can be tough, which is why it’s a good idea to leave this type of phone repair to the professionals.
Charging Port Issues – If your smartphone is slow to charge or refuses to do so at all despite trying multiple different cables, there’s a chance that your charging port itself may be damaged. Although a more common issue in older iPhones and Galaxies, the issue can arise through careless use of the charger and the charging cable while connected to your smartphone.
Water Damage – Although serious water damage to smartphones is less common now thanks to technology advances, it’s still one of the most requested phone repairs as the damage is hard to detect on face value. Whether you’ve dropped it in a swimming pool or spilled a cup of coffee over your phone, don’t try fixing this one yourself to avoid causing more harm than good.
Camera Lens Cracks – As many people love their smartphones because of the great photographic experience that their extremely convenient cameras provide, a cracked or damaged camera lens can be a real cause of concern in regards to its overall use. To avoid blurry or less than stellar photos, look into getting the lens replaced by a professional.
