The problem with gadgets isn’t just that they experience the occasional internal glitch. When you start holding them, they can sometimes slip out of your hands and fall to the floor, causing some of their crucial parts to break.
According to an NY Daily News article published last November 20, this type of accident is more common during the holiday season as proven by survey results:
The holiday season is one of the most accident-prone times of the year when it comes to the safety of high-tech gadgets with smartphones and cameras the devices most likely to be broken.
In fact, the iPhone is the most vulnerable device when it comes to accidental damage.
“It’s tough to be a device during the holidays — we were surprised to find that more than half of accidents were attributed to activities like traveling, holiday shopping, cooking and decorating,” said Ty Shay, SquareTrade’s CMO.
Unfortunately, gadget accidents can happen anywhere because the holiday rush can affect anyone at any given moment, including Aussies who have to go through it along with the sweltering Christmas heatwave.
The question now is: what should you do next? Should you personally fix common iPhone damage like cracked screens and scratches, or is asking for professional repair assistance necessary?
Take cracked screens for example. An iPhone’s glass is not as tough as it might seem, making it vulnerable to damage from dropping. That’s why cracked screens remain a common problem despite various innovations. While browsing the Internet can give you a number of websites with DIY repair tips, nothing is safer than asking a trusted Melbourne iPhone screen repair business for assistance.
Hiring a professional who knows everything about cell phone repair is no doubt the best option. It’s less expensive than buying a new phone and you’ll have peace of mind knowing that the repair will be done right. One company that does iPhone screen repairs in Melbourne is TelcoWorld, which specialises in most touch screen problems.
The holiday season may cause a lot of gadget mishaps but you can always prevent the worst simply by being careful. If the air is just too festive to stay calm and collected, however, you can rest knowing that you have a reliable repair centre nearby that’s ready to save your favourite gadget.
