5 Things to Pay Attention to When Taking Your Broken Phone to a Mobile Repair

The long awaited augmented reality game Pokémon Go has finally launched in Hong Kong. Since its inception, there hasn’t been a global shortage of aspiring trainers that threw caution in the wind and found themselves in dangerous situations, breaking their phones if not their bones.

Here are 5 things you should be aware of before taking your phone to a repair service provider:

  1. Official repair centers have a longer turnaround time compared to phone repair service providers on the streets. The latter could save you anywhere from a couple hundred to $2000 compared to the former. One thing to bear in mind, your phone may no longer be protected by the warranty once it’s been fixed elsewhere.
  2. Confirm the fees with your repairer and understand what the service includes.
  3. If you can’t stay for the repair process, copy your phone’s IMEI number to make sure you’re getting the same phone back.
  4. Delete any personal information on your phone and do a backup.
  5. Take a picture of your broken phone and check if the problems have been fixed.
