Some of the common myths that people tend to believe about  smartphones that can end up costing you big are as follows:

  • Water damage means the end of your phone.It is true that water is not good for a smart phone and Apple phones are vulnerable when it comes to getting wet. Apple for example has installed water sensors throughout the phones to deny warranty repairs for phones with water damage. However, just because your phone has some exposure to water does not mean that you need to pay top dollar for out-of-warranty repair or get a new phone.  Many websites like com have some tips for how you can fix a wet phone or tablet. You can also take your phone to professionals who may be able to help you to fix the phone in case it gets wet.

  • Third party cell repair shops will void my warranty if they repair my device. This is an inaccurate statement: Your warranty is automatically void after 1 year anyway, but even if you do the repair before that, there are ways to open the phone without lifting any flags. Water sensors for example can be replaced so they do not show signs of water damage which void the warranty. A top service technician would be able to open your device without leaving any trace. Phone companies instead scare you into going to them instead so they can charge you top dollar. A reputable service center like can do all that for you.
  • A dead battery means you need a new phone.Cell phone companies have led people to believe that it is advisable to just get a new device if the battery on their old one dies.  While some dealers charge a lot of money to replace the battery, you do not necessarily have to go to them. Some people might even try to replace it on their own, but this could in many cases lead to worst results or side effects if they do not do it correctly.

  • Smartphone repair is expensive, so you should just try it yourself to save money. Because most products tend to be costly to buy, it is natural to assume that there will also be a significant expense associated with the repair of a broken phone.  Of course the ultimate cheap way is to try and fix the phone yourself but unless you are tech-savvy, in many cases you may end up causing more damage, ending up costing you more in the long run than it will to get it repaired. The reality is that while some repairs are more expensive than others, it is possible to get your device repaired without breaking the bank. This is especially true if you take your phone to be repaired by tech professionals other than the dealer, the way you would take your car to your favorite mechanic instead of your local car dealer who will almost always overcharge you.
