We’ve all heard the famous quote “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it!”. Well, what it really IS broken, should you FIX IT? The simple answer if for sure you should, but not by yourself! I always say this, your smart device is only as smart as you! Meaning that although you may have the confidence to do the repairs all by yourself, you should not be attempting it unless there is absolutely no other option available to you which is a rare case all by itself given how much the technology has evolved.
With the advancements in technology, we had come to adapt these new gadgets in our daily lives similar to so many other essentials that we cannot imagine to survive without. However, with the absolute complex nature of these tech devices, it is not best to simply attempt handling them on your own in case they start to malfunction. There are so many reasons why self-repair should not be considered and not recommended by experts. One of the biggest reasons this practice is discouraged is because opening the device or disassembling it in any way, shape or form will void the manufacturer’s warranty. Even in cases where the device is already out of the warranty period, disassembling would most like result in further issues and therefore it should not be attempted. As mentioned on the ubreakifix website, the repair of smart devices should be left to professionals only, as they not only have the right tools but also the experience in dealing with issues more proficiently.
However, before sending in the device for repairs, make sure to remove any external storage and the sim to avoid any incidents. It may seem a bit unnecessary to pay for a service that you could ‘probably’ do on your own, but it will definitely be worth it in the long run.
