Many experts agree that smart phones have revolutionized the way that people look at and interact with the world. Whereas long distance communication was a difficult and costly enterprise even as recently as ten years ago, smart phones make it possible for people to easily communicate with friends and family at all hours of the day. Smart phones also facilitate shopping and research. Before smart phones were invented, shoppers who wanted to learn about a product had to request information from the company which produced it or find reviews in a magazine. Today, almost half of all users compare product reviews and even prices on their smart phones while standing in the brick and mortar stores themselves.
However, although smart phones have revolutionized communication and research, smart phones are very fragile devices which require frequent cell phone repair generally and iphone repair specifically. (Some experts suggest that iPhone and iPad repairs account for the majority of cell phone repairs.) Most cell phone repairs fix damage which occurs after users drop them. (Indeed, more than twenty percent of iPhone accidents occur when users drop them in the kitchen, a statistic which explains why nearly ten percent of iPads are afflicted with shattered screens within one year.) However, some blunders which require cell phone repair are more humorous: for example, six percent of iPhone users have placed their phone on top of their car before driving away. Far more common than broken screens, however, are broken phone batteries. Fortunately for users who require frequent cell phone repairs, however, iphone parts (including the iPhone battery) are inexpensive.
