It’s a well-known fact that gadget repairs, be that a smartphone or a tablet, can cost anywhere between 50 and 100 percent of the initial price. Yes, you might end up paying the whole purchasing price for your beloved technological wonder if you need to repair it from heavy damage. The screen change on say iPad Air 2 can rack up to $200, and minor repairs such as charging port replacement go up to $90 on an average tablet. Those are some scary figures, especially if you’ve purchased your device on a payment plan, but luckily most operators are now offering insurance policies to go with the expensive gadgets, minimizing the prices of the repairs for the end-user, but increasing the cost of their monthly plans.
Regardless of who ends up paying for the repairs, it’s a huge industry in any case. In fact, some estimates put the total cost of smartphone repairs in the USA at $1.4 billion in 2014. And yes, that’s only for the smartphones, and only in the USA. By the end of last year, Americans have spent a total of $5.9 billion repairing their smartphones. Figures go even further: more than 30% of smartphone users have damaged their phones last year, and over 17% have done it more than once in a single year. There are no clear statistics available about tablet repairs, but for the sake of simplicity we shall assume they are similar to those of the smartphones. And with the penetration of the gadgets into our lives constantly growing, we can expect these figures to rise with every year.
It all bring us to the main point: why waste money repairing your tablet when you can make sure it stays safe? Selecting a tablet accessory that will keep your device safe no matter what comes its way is your best case scenario, especially considering they will come at a fraction of the price you would pay for your gadget’s repair. Luckily Tablet2cases has plenty of options to choose from: there are tablet screen protectors and rugged tablet cases of all shapes and sizes, making sure owners of virtually every tablet device can choose the one that best suits their needs.
