Verizon Communications Inc. has recently reported that most Americans are holding onto their phones longer than ever, according to Bloomberg. With new phones costing upwards of $1,000 it is understandably so that Americans are not upgrading and updating. Even older versions of phones, such as the iPhone 8 plus, are upwards of $600-800, for not much of an improvement to their older models besides a difference in screen size. With portable chargers, even short battery life is no longer a reason to upgrade your older phone model for something newer.
With companies like ours, Origami Handcannon, phone users can upgrade their phones just by simply replacing a cracked screen, broken charging port, or even trading it in. These services can cost around 1/8th of the price of buying an entirely new phone with half the hassle and a quarter of the time.
Replacing a cracked screen can take under two hours depending on availability - as opposed to being days without your phone after shipping it off with Apple, Microsoft, AT&T, or Verizon. Not to mention that replacing a cracked screen can add years to the life of your phone. This also eliminates the hassle of transferring contacts, memories, and music.
We recently fixed this hairline crack in this Google Pixel 3 XL for $179, making the phone look brand new, as opposed to buying a new $900 version of the same phone, or spending even more to sent it to Google to have it fixed. The repair was done in an hour and a half and saved our customer hundreds of dollars.
