Cell Phone Repair

Full reception

The Cell Phone Repair industry has grown profoundly due to several factors. First, smartphones have become more popular as mobile internet becomes cheaper and more reliable. Because smartphones are more fragile than other phones, they need more repairs. Second, smartphones are more expensive, thus prompting consumers to repair their smartphones rather than replace them. Last, technological changes will cause consumers to buy the latest incarnations of 4G phones, meaning a new fleet of phones will come into play when it comes to repairs. However, these rapid technological changes are a double-edged sword, as people buy new phones instead of repair their old ones.

This industry repairs and maintains cell phones. Some firms may also repair tablets such as iPads or other electronic devices as a secondary business. Industry firms include brick-and-mortar stores, which allow customers to bring their cell phones to their stores for repair. Some stores also allow customers to mail in devices that need repairs.
