If you have a phone of any kind that isn’t working quite right, it is easy to just throw your hands in the air and get a new phone. Maybe you just don’t want to wait for the repairs to be completed, or maybe you just like new and shiny things, but this is often the alternative that we turn to, although it is often not the alternative that makes the most sense. For this reason, it is important to think critically about the purchases and monetary decisions we make, and one of those decisions that we all face frequently is the question of whether or not to replace a broken device or to repair it. Too often we just turn to the easier option of replacement, and we are often encouraged towards this option by retailers in the name of “planned obsolescence.” Instead, consider what other options you might have and why these options could be more beneficial for you and for the world around you in the long run. At ZAGG Phone Repair, repairs are the goal rather than replacement for so many important reasons. This company knows that it saves you money in the long term and is better for the environment in general if you make the choice to repair a broken device rather than replace it. Here are some of the reasons you should consider working with ZAGG Phone Repair when your iPhone breaks rather than replace the phone entirely.
- Environmentalism: There are quite a few metals and other resources that go into creating your phone. After all, these are intense processes that require a lot of very specific metals if the ideal phone is to be created, and for this reason the constant process of replacing phones, year in and year out, is not great for the environment. Mass consumer culture tells us to buy the latest and newest thing, to no spend time on devices that are old or broken. The better choice, if you are keeping the planet in mind, is to take good care of your things and replace them only when they truly do not function any longer. This is a mindset that ZAGG phone repair can help you achieve, by providing affordable phone repair services for smartphones and other devices.
- More waste: Why create more trash than you need to? There is enough stuff floating around in our landfills that we do not need to add any more to it. Even if the stuff of smart phones can be recycled, the waste is still present. Make less waste and repair broken smart phones.
- Personal budgeting: If your broken device is out of warranty, iPhone replacement can get expensive, and fast. Instead of letting things get pricey and spending more than you need to on devices, try iPhone repair instead to save money and keep that iPhone that you have grown so attached to! It is almost always more cost effective to repair something that is broken than to buy something entirely new! Make the smart choice, and go with phone repair.
