We review some of the best shops for android phone repair in Waterloo Region. Over the last decade or so, Waterloo has become a technology hub known to the world. As such, there are many repair shops for all communication technologies including cell phones, android phones, laptops and computers, to name a few.
Our lives revolve around cell phones and computers, and as to be expected with constant use, these technologies break down, or we damage them unexpectedly! Phone frames get bent and screens shatter, or phones do not accept chargers. No matter the issue, it is usually something that can be repaired instead of buying a new one. Big box stores will try to sell you a brand new product or overcharge for repairs, because money is their number one goal.
We review four of the best small businesses instead, and highly recommend you take your business to one of them. They are all relatively equal in terms of customer service and pricing and expertise, so choose depending upon your locale. We look at factors such as repair cost, efficiency (amount of time used to make repairs), trustworthiness and customer service. These are in no particular order!
