Let’s face it: Smartphones are expensive! Even if you signed up for an affordable contract with a cellphone company that included a reduced-price smartphone, you will undoubtedly want to keep your smartphone running at peak performance for as long as possible. It’s much cheaper to schedule a Samsung phone repair in Tucson to fix the occasional problem than to replace your phone every time it has a glitch or the screen cracks. For fast and affordable Samsung S8 screen repairs in Tucson and many other services, you can rely on Gamers Warehouse!
What is the most common repair needed for Samsung phones?
If you own a Samsung phone long enough, there’s a good chance something will need to be repaired. Perhaps the most common problem is a cracked screen. At Gamers Warehouse, we provide Samsung Galaxy S7 screen repair services, as well as screen repairs on all other models of Samsung phones.
Can I wait to get my Samsung phone screen repaired?
Some people try to delay getting the screen fixed if it starts to crack a little. Unfortunately, the problem will only get worse. Cracked screens are prone to complete shattering, and it’s actually harder to replace a screen that has completely shattered versus one that has simply cracked. In addition, it’s not a good idea to wait too long to get it fixed because a cracked screen can allow dust, moisture, and other substances to get inside the phone and damage its sensitive interior components. In other words, you’ll need to get more repaired than just the screen.
Another reason why it’s not a good idea to delay repairing your Samsung screen is simply that it looks unprofessional. No matter which type of job you have, it can be embarrassing to pull out a phone with a visibly cracked screen in front of a customer or client—or your boss!
What if I have an older model of Samsung phone? Can I still get it repaired?
Absolutely! Plenty of people decide that it’s not worth it to upgrade every single time a new model is released. You should be able to use your older model for as long as possible. At Gamers Warehouse, we offer Samsung phone repair in Tucson for every model. This includes the S2, S3, S4, S5, S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge Plus, S7, and S7 Edge. By bringing your old model phone in to our team for repairs, we can help you keep on enjoying it for as long as possible.
My Samsung phone was supposed to be waterproof! Why did water damage it?
No smartphone has yet been released that is 100% impervious to fluid damage. Any Samsung Galaxy smartphone that was released prior to the S7 features zero water resistance, so be very careful when using it around lakes or bathtubs. The newer Samsung phones do have an IP68 rating. This means they are somewhat water-resistant. They can tolerate being submerged in up to 1.5 meters for no more than 30 minutes.
However, it’s important to note that the rating isn’t a bulletproof guarantee. It only applies to phones in mint condition, so if your phone already had some damage, its water resistance may have declined. For example, water can enter through a crack in the case or a worn seal. In addition, the water resistance rating only applies to fresh water without the addition of salt, oils, or any other substances. Regardless of the water resistance rating of your smartphone, it’s always best to keep it away from liquids.
Sometimes, the buttons on Samsung phones can start to malfunction. This is especially true for older model phones that have seen a lot of use. You may notice problems with your Home, Volume, or other buttons sticking or not pressing properly. If possible, try to reboot your phone by holding down the Power and Home buttons simultaneously. If this doesn’t work, or if the buttons are malfunctioning so badly that you can’t do this, then it’s time to bring your Samsung phone in for repairs. At Gamers Warehouse, we fix faulty buttons all the time!
Should I get my Samsung phone battery replaced?
Malfunctioning batteries are another problem we often see at Gamers Warehouse. The average cellphone battery will only last for about 300 to 500 charging cycles. For average usage, this is about one to two years. If your phone is already a couple of years old and you’ve never replaced the battery, it’s likely time to do so. To confirm this, turn your phone off and plug in the charger. Allow it to charge completely, which should take between four and six hours. Remove the charger and turn on the phone. Check the battery icon. If the battery icon isn’t full despite having been charged, then the battery is definitely getting old and will need to be replaced.
