Cost of Fixing Your Phone Screen
The average phone screen replacement costs £167 but this varies hugely depending on the kind of handset you have.
A screen replacement is one of the most common repairs you’ll find, with smartphones particularly susceptible to screen damage if you accidentally drop your phone.
The Google Pixel Fold requires the most expensive screen repair costing a massive £1,048. It does make sense though – the Pixel Fold is Google’s only foldable phone, and with a larger, more complex screen, you have to expect to pay more to get it fixed.
The most expensive single-screen repair is shared by the Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 15 Pro Max, which both cost £389 for a new screen.
The cheapest screen repair goes to budget handset manufacturer Xiaomi. Its ultra-cheap Redmi GO costs just £18.52 for a new screen.
Cost of Fixing Your Phone Battery
The average phone battery replacement costs £76 but as always, this depends on your handset.
Smartphones can experience battery issues for a variety of reasons, most often due to water damage, overcharging, or simply because the device itself is getting old – batteries tend to lose capacity the longer you have them.
Samsung offers some of the most expensive battery repairs – the Samsung Galaxy A52, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3, and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 cost the most at £139. Again, the foldable phones just cost more to repair – likely due to the complexity of dismantling and rebuilding the phone, as well as the necessary larger capacity to power several screens at once.
The cheapest battery replacement is for the Xiaomi Redmi 6 at just £4.98.
Cost of Fixing Your Phone’s Back Glass
The average cost to fix a phone’s back glass is £145 but can be a lot more expensive if you have a higher-end device.
Back glasses don’t just look good, they also provide an extra layer of protection for sensitive parts that you might find in more expensive handsets. Fingerprint sensors, touch capability, and more expensive rear cameras are all given added protection by your phone’s back glass.
Unsurprisingly, the most expensive back glass replacements are from Apple – a new back glass for the iPhone 14 Pro Max costs a massive £559. Thankfully, Apple has found a way to reduce the cost for its flagship iPhone 15 phones, resulting in cheaper replacements for the newer phones.
The cheapest back glass replacements are for the Google Pixel 4a and Google Pixel 5, costing £25.
Cost of Fixing Your Phone’s Rear Camera
The average cost to fix a rear camera is £110 but this can increase dramatically for high-end phones.
Obviously, your phone is more than just a phone these days, and most flagship devices offer camera quality that would put a DSLR to shame. Unfortunately, that means you’ll likely be paying a premium if you need to get it fixed.
The Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max has the most expensive rear camera replacement, costing £259. For that price, however, you’re getting a camera that boasts triple lenses as well as a super-high 48MP resolution.
The cheapest rear camera replacement is for the Xiaomi Redmi Go costing just £3.48.
Cost of Fixing Your Phone’s Charging Port
The average cost to fix your phone’s charging port is £122 and it’s essential to make sure your phone is fully charged.
A charging port can experience issues for a number of reasons, but leaving it plugged in for too long, as well as physical damage from a cord being pulled can be good reasons to get it fixed.
The most expensive charging port replacement is for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge costing £249.
However, the cheapest charging port repair is for the Samsung Galaxy S22 – it may be a much newer Samsung handset, but this repair costs just £79.
Cost of Fixing Your Phone’s Water Damage
The average cost to fix water damage is £950 but the service isn’t offered everywhere.
In fact, most manufacturers don’t offer water damage repair as a dedicated service, instead charging you for individual parts repair and replacement once your phone is with them.
Samsung, however, does offer this service… but it’s a bit pricey. Most handsets that allow for water damage repair cost a massive £1,000 but this is largely due to the extensive nature of the repairs. It could mean replacing several components as well as the phone’s main board and chipset.
The cheapest repair is for the Samsung Galaxy A03 costing just £179.
