Because of the high prices, many of us are holding the same phones longer than before, where instead of upgrading every year, we can keep them for up to three years.
That means we have to take care of our equipment, but we need to make sure that they can be easily repaired if they need repair.
According to a recent iFix test, the Samsung Galaxy S10 will not be the easiest phone to repair. The report has given the phone 3 gloomy points of 10 in terms of repair, citing issues such as a “hard” replacement battery, and a glass attached to the front and back that means more bent great for breaking.
However iFixit notes that the components are mostly modular, which means that they can be replaced individually, as opposed to replacing some components for only one part.
The result of repair may not matter to most people, but it is something to consider if you plan to keep your phone for a long time.
