BONN If you have a damaged mobile phone, there are several places you can go to have it repaired in Bonn. But the prices and services vary greatly. Here is an overview.
It happens just like that, the phone falls and the display screen shatters. An everyday problem in the 21st century. If you don’t want to live with the damaged display for weeks or months, there is no need to buy a new device right away. Many shops in Bonn specialize in the repair of smartphones.
But how reliable are the shops who provide this service? Besides the local stores, manufacturers also offer their own repair services. In 2015, the consumer organization Stiftung Warentest took a closer look at the various options and found that only Apple and Huawei were able to repair all damages "flawlessly". "Independent online repair services can be an alternative in some cases," writes author Simone Vintz.
The consumer organization urges caution on the part of customers and advises that not all the shops offering repair services come with the same level of quality. The manufacturer repair services performed better than independent services such as Phonecare or Letsfix in the 2015 test. In order to avoid the high costs of repairing a display, the purchase of a good mobile phone case can be a good preventative measure.
Here, we have compiled a list of places where you can get your smartphone repaired in Bonn.
