"Should I Repair or Replace My Smartphone?

Making the Right Choice for You and the Planet

With the release of the latest iPhone 14, it's tempting to upgrade your smartphone. But is it worth it to buy a new phone, or is repair a better option? Here are a few things to consider before making your decision.

  1. Warranty: Check if your device is still covered under the manufacturer's warranty or any extended warranty you may have purchased. This can make certain repairs free of charge.

  2. Age of your phone: If you have a relatively new phone, the upgrade may not offer significant improvements, and the cost might not be worth it.

  3. Cost: Repair is usually less expensive than replacement. For instance, fixing a cracked screen, replacing the battery, or fixing the camera can extend the life of your device and save you money.
