How to Make Your Smartphone Last Longer

The most expensive but safest option is to get a repair directly from the manufacturer or an authorized service center. Apple, Google, Samsung and most other manufacturers will replace your battery, screen and other parts for a fee. Samsung partners with a company called uBreakiFix that has nearly 500 locations across the country. Using an officially authorized repair center guarantees that your phone’s manufacturer won’t deny you service if you need a repair or help from them in the future.

Asurion Buys uBreakiFix, Proving Repair Is Big Business

One of the world’s largest electronics insurance companies is now one of America’s largest retail repair services, as Asurion has acquired uBreakiFix. While company buyouts can sometimes be bad news for consumers, we see this as a potential big step forward for uBreakiFix and the entire repair industry in general. Not only does this prove that repair is alive and well (and that big business is watching), it legitimizes independent repair and ensures that device owners who go through Asurion have even more options on where they can get their broken device fixed.
