Replacing worn out smartphone battery
One of the most common smartphone problems people face and consider to repair on their own is a replacing a worn out battery. The batteries of smartphones usually last a maximum of two years. After that it will start to deteriorate no matter how well you take care of your phone. Batteries are meant to be replaced and you will know when by noting your phone’s running time. If you notice it decreasing, it means your battery is starting to wear out.
Although you can buy a replacement battery in many local and online shops and there are easy-to-follow phone repair video tutorials that show you how to replace a battery, you should still refrain from doing so. This is particularly true if you do not have previous experiences and are not comfortable working with electronics. Moreover, if this is the first time that this happened, opening your phone to replace the battery will void the manufacturer warranty.
If your phone is less than two years old and you notice its running time is decreasing, do not assume that it is because of a worn out battery. There might be another cause to the problem and this is why you need to take it to a licensed repair shop as soon as you notice problems. Professional and licensed phone technicians will help you assess the problem, identify the cause and resolve your smartphone quickly and affordably. Most often, the costs of hiring a licensed phone technician is less than the costs of bringing your phone to the manufacturer and having them do the repairs.
More importantly, always remember that smartphones today are manufactured with complex systems. In fact, opening the case is already tricky and very difficult. Attempting to do the repairs on your own could only result to more damages. Thus, it is always better to bring your damaged phone to a licensed and experienced professional.
