Why is there such a big price difference between screen repair options on my Samsung Galaxy?

The Samsung Galaxy is in the middle of it's big bang right now with sale numbers that seem to just keep expanding faster and faster. With more people choosing the Samsung Galaxy as their smart phone we are doing more repairs on them all the time to match the growing popularity. It's so popular that in some of the 'top 10' gadget lists of 2012 not only did the Samsung Galaxy S3 make it to one of the top spots but the Galaxy S2 made it on the list as well!

It goes without saying that when you pick your mobile phone repairer you need to know that the best possible parts are going into your phone. In the case of the Samsung Galaxy there are a number of manufacturers and assemblers; some based in China and Samsung's own manufacturers which are based in Korea. Unfortunately the 3rd party quality is not equal to Samsung mainly because of Samsung's strict quality control during assembly of the parts. 

What's the difference between Fix My Mobile and other repairers?

We offer you a number of choices for your phone repair; either choose to use the same parts that authorised Samsung repair agents have access to or opt for 3rd party components and save some money. As always, you will get our comprehensive warranty as with all repairs we do.

It goes without saying that we will always recommend the option that will make your phone as close to as it was when it left the factory as possible because then you don't need to worry about it failing in the future. 

Warning: Some other mobile phone repairers choose to not replace the frame when doing a screen repair and this greatly increases the chance of the screen cracking again because the old frame may be slightly bent or have old glue still left behind which means the LCD panel is not sitting perfectly in the frame. 

When making a choice about your mobile phone repairer, choose Fix My Mobile for expert technicians and the best quality parts available. If you have any more questions don't hesitate to call our friendly staff.

htc one_x

HTC has been making big waves in the mobile phone industry for quite a few years now with innovative designs and the HTC One X is no different. Its got a myriad of cutting edge features like a whopping 720p screen (1280 x 720px), a grunty 1.5 GHz quad core processor and a 8 megapixel camera. What more could you want in a smart phone today?

Fix My Mobile is fully equipped to handle any problems you may have with your HTC One X mobile phone and we have access to suprior replacement screen as well. While some mobile phone repairers have to buy the replacement touch screen and LCD separately the standard screen is actually fused together which makes the phone more resistant to getting a cracked screen. Have the HTC One XL? We can fix that as well!Not only do we replace your screen with the correctly fused version, we also replace the chassis if required at the same time. The chassis of the phone is what gives it its strength. If this is out of shape or has taken any damage, the phone will be inherantly weaker and much more likely to have problems again in the future. 

The list of repairs we can do is virtually endless but here are some of the more common problems:

  • HTC One X / XL Speaker replacement
  • HTC One X / XL Screen replacement
  • HTC One X / XL Buttons not working or intermitent
  • HTC One X / XL Software updates
  • HTC One X / XL Micro Sim slot replacement

We know that you want peace of mind when getting your mobile phone repaired and that's why we have now extended our warranty. We now offer a full 6 month warranty on all repairs when using genuine parts and a full 90 day warranty on all repairs that use compatible parts. 

What does this cover?

It covers all faults not caused by the user; Discolouration of the LCD screen, unresponsive touch etc. Needless so say, we do not cover any physical damage from impact etc or liquid damage caused by user. Here at Fix My Mobile we take our quality of work very seriously and we stand behind our warranty 100%.

photo-4-150x150We have all heard horror stories about mobile phones catching on fire, which some seem to have been blown out of proportion with some creative headlines. However in a recent article by ZDNet (click here for the full story) a iPhone on a flight to Sydney started "spewing black smoke" and had to be put out with a fire extinguisher. After being tested is was reviled that a loose screw managed to puncture the battery casing. The screw seems to have been left loose inside the phone after a"botched screen-replacement job" by a non-authorised Apple repairer.

We have always taken a proactive approach in making sure all of our repairs are done to the absolute highest quality and needless to say we were not the repairer that caused this mishap. Always keep in mind that not all repairers are actually qualified technicians. Not only do we fully guarantee the parts we use with a 90 day warranty, the same warranty also covers you for the actual repair labour as well. We stand by the work we do and that's what makes us the first choice for tens of thousands of Australians!

What you may not know is that before you get your phone back, we stringently test the repair we have done AND we test all other major parts on your phone to make sure it's in perfect order. We are proud of the work that is done by our highly trained qualified technicians and that's what makes it easy for us to guarantee it!

Galaxy S II 4GSamsung has been the major competitor to the Apple iPhone quite some time and the show down between the corporate giants means that the consumers are getting some amazing technology packed into their new mobile phones. As each company tries to outdo the other their smartphones get faster and slimmer.

The Samsung Galaxy S II has everything you would expect from a smartphone but here are some of the major features; 4.5 inch AMOLED Plus screen, 1.5 GHz Dual Core processor, 8MP camera with flash and the whole thing is only 9.54 mm thick. All of this run of the Android operating system.

Some of the more common problems on the Samsung Galaxy S 2 are:

- Echoing Microphone, which is often caused by using the wrong phone case.
- Slow operation and/or freezing which may mean you need to get the software on your phone updated.
- Liquid damage.
- Cracked glass touch screen.
- Blank screen.
- Hairline fracture in the LCD.
- No reception after an impact.

All of these problems and more can be easily fixed by the experienced team at Fix My Mobile. Don't just let anyone repair your phone. Under qualified technicians can cause more damage to your phone. We only use the best parts and that's why we can stand by our 90 day warranty on all parts and labour for any repair we do.
