With the technology and innovation that currently goes into making today’s cell phones, the price to own the phone is much higher than they once were.
As well as being more expensive, cellphones have become more fragile, with touch screen glass being the trend in almost all of today’s cell phones.
But if you are to break your cell phone, is it best to repair it, or sell it as is? Or would it make sense to throw it out and get a new one?
The actual fact is, broken cell phones can still fetch quite a bit of money, and continue to hold their value. There is a huge industry in repairing these smartphones, and even if you don’t want to go through the hassle of fixing your device and then reselling, you can still get a fair amount of money for selling the phone as broken. Sites like eBay and Amazon are filled with broken phones for sale and they do get a fair bit of money, making it worth the hassle.
If you are not currently an Amazon or eBay customer, you can also sell your broken cell phone or iPhone to a cell phone repair store like ours. At Clinic Vancouver, we offer cash for these broken devices, as we can refurbish these devices a resell them at a discounted price.
If your wondering if it is worth it to fix your cellphone from a financial stand point, it is almost always worth it to fix a device, as the repaired device has a resale value much higher than the cost of repair. The only time it would not be worth it is if your phone is more than 5 years old and it is lower cost cellphone in the first place.
