Every time you drop your phone, you pick it up with trepidation. Often, it is fine; your screen protector and case have done their work in keeping your phone safe. But then, one day, you see the dreaded crack in the screen. Oh no!
When faced with this situation, you will need to consider the option of a professional iPhone glass repair in Toronto versus buying a new device.
In this blog, we will look at the cost implications of each option to help you make the best decision.
The Cost of iPhone Screen Replacement
The cost of a professionally installed iPhone replacement screen varies according to the model of your phone. Older model phones would be around $200, all the way up to approximately $500 for the latest models.
The advantages of opting for a screen replacement include:
- The cost of a glass repair is generally lower than the cost of a new device. Your professional repairer will ensure that your iPhone is working to its full functionality with the new screen.
- Instead of adding another device to the piles of e-waste, you will keep your original phone for longer.
The Cost of Buying a New Device
Everyone is keen to have the latest iPhone, as the new models will have features unavailable on older models. Depending on which model, size, and storage capacity you choose, a new iPhone can cost, on average, anywhere from $700 to $1500.
The advantages of a new device:
- The phone will come with a warranty and optional iCare, which will assist you in the event of a problem with your new device.
- Your new device will have the latest technology built in, including faster processing, a better camera, and a longer battery life.
How To Decide
The two most essential factors in your decision will be the age of your existing phone and your budget. If your phone is relatively new, a repair will extend the life of your phone for the next few years. However, if your phone is already old and outdated, you may want to spend your money on a new model instead.
Your budget will also have to be taken into consideration, especially in the case of opting for a new device.
