The components of a mobile phone that are most damaged
Undoubtedly, today, the smartphone is more than a simple instrument to communicate as before. Today it has become a true window between the person and the entire world.
With the mobile we carry out an infinite number of actions in a very comfortable and immediate way.
In addition to communicating, giving us leisure and entertainment, information, helps us carry out a multitude of files, and even for many people it is their work tool.
Taking into account the great use that we give to this device, it is impossible to avoid that at any given time it could break down and need a repair.
Either because we have been wet, due to an unfortunate blow or fall or simply by the use itself, smartphones are devices that frequently break down.
In this post we will make a compilation of the most common mobile failures.
The screen change is undoubtedly the repair that we make most in terepair.
Although brands increasingly manufacture screens that are more resistant to shocks and scratches, these pieces are not yet unbreakable. The screen is the component of the mobile that always takes the worst part if the mobile falls to the ground.
Most of us try to protect our mobile phone with rigid or silicone cases (which fully load the aesthetics of the mobile) or we put a tempered glass screen. However, sometimes that protection is not enough.
In addition, the screen is one of the most expensive components of a mobile, hence its repair is also.
Keep in mind that the glass is not the same as the screen. It may happen that the glass has broken but not the screen. For that reason, on some occasions you can see how it continues to work without problem.
The opposite can also happen, the screen may have broken and then it will not respond when you touch it will stop working, although there are cases in which it continues to work.
If the screen and the glass have been broken, or even if only one of the two things has been broken, you should probably change both since in some mobile models, they are assembled and not sold separately.
In some cases you also have to change the entire front part where the buttons or the camera are located.
Depending on the type of fault and the brand of the device, the repair will be more expensive or not.
2. Charging connector
The charging connector is another part that we change the most in terepair. It is subject to great wear because we are continuously connecting and disconnecting the mobile charger and many times “we give it a good pull”.
In addition to the great use that is given to this component, being a slot is a piece that is usually filled with dirt (dirt, dust …) and even moisture.
It is important to clean the charging connector from time to time and avoid plugging the charger without checking that this port is clean and free of impurities.
3. Problems with the battery
The cell phone battery is another component that breaks down the most.
The main reason for its deterioration is due to the high temperatures. In general, the extreme temperatures are not friends with the batteries and, therefore, it should not surprise us if our phone suddenly turns off when we leave the phone in the car forgotten in the middle of summer.
Another reason that causes damage to the batteries is to use a charger not suitable for your mobile. Many times we use the same charger for mobile, tablet or headphones as they have the same port and this is a mistake.
The battery of each device has a different amperage, so if we use the same charger for everyone it may be, in some cases, too powerful or insufficient.
4. Software Issues
Updates of the operating system, how many joys and dislikes have caused since the arrival of smartphones.
Every day we receive phones with software problems, most of them are the fault of software updates.
The two most frequent problems that updates can cause are:
That our smartphone works extremely slowly and / or with many errors.
Directly after updating it, it does not even turn on, which is called Bootloop.
Many software problems also occur after installing applications, as we know many are plagued by viruses and malware.
5. Problems Speakers and Micro
Problems with the audio are very frequent. The symptoms of a broken microphone is that the caller does not hear you when you make a call.
Interferences or “clicks” may also appear. You can not record audios either or they are heard with very high quality.
Something may be blocking the sound so you must confirm that the microphone has no residue or dirt or that it is not blocked. Otherwise you must change the piece.
The speaker is another piece that is subject to great wear.
When a mobile phone has a speaker fault, it obviously does not play any sound when you receive a call.
It also does not emit sound when you receive a notification or it is very slight or distorted. When activating the hands-free, the mobile will not ring either.
When you play a song or put a video, the mobile does not emit any sound. You can check if with headphones if you hear sound.
If you also don’t hear anything with them, you may have a sotware or board failure. There may also be a chance that the audio jack is also damaged (it is the headphone jack).
6. Water damage
Every day we receive several mobiles that have suffered water damage. Many people do not even know that their cell phone has suffered water damage since it is not necessary for the phone to fall into the water.
It is enough that the mobile has been in a place with a lot of humidity, for example in the bathroom while we shower.
There are also many people who exercise with the mobile and sweat itself can even damage the device.
That is why it is important to protect our device with a waterproof bag while we shower.
