iPhone 7 Screen Broken? Do You Sell or Fix it?
Are you considering the worth of your iPhone 7 screen repair? It has been a while since it was released, so it is only natural you are looking for an upgrade. If you are unsure fixing your screen is worth your money, this blog post will help you.
Are You Planning on Using Your iPhone 7?
This is the first question that you need to answer. iPhone 7 was released in 2016, five years ago. If you buy a new iPhone now, you will get quite an upgrade. iPhone 11 and 12 have amazing features like an incredible camera and screen quality.
However, maybe you just want to keep using your old smartphone. There is nothing wrong with getting attached and using it for as long as it works. Especially if you don’t think you will use all the features the newer iPhones offer.
But, what you should also consider is the value your iPhone currently holds and the price of the screen repair, plus the ever-diminishing battery life, and an almost obsolete operating system.
iPhone 7 Worth, Broken vs Repaired
Let’s say you want to keep your iPhone 7, but you are wondering if the repair is worth it. Then the second question is how much your smartphone is worth broken and how much repaired. The amount you could realistically expect for a working iPhone 7 is between 100 and 150 euros.
And iPhone 7 screen repair will cost you around 50 euros. A broken iPhone you could maybe sell for a price between 50 and 100 euros. But this highly depends on how broken your screen is, the state of the rest of the functionalities, and the storage space.
So, to sum the prices up. If you were to repair your phone and sell it, you could get back around 100 euros for your iPhone. This is not bad considering that as times goes on, its value will keep falling. If you are looking for an upgrade, now might be the time.
Besides, you don’t have to upgrade to iPhone 11 or 12 if that seems expensive. You could also get a refurbished iPhone for a fraction of the cost.
When to Replace Your iPhone
Maybe you are one of those iPhone owners who pay special attention to their smartphone. It seldom falls out of your hand, you are careful not to scratch it. And now, your screen broke accidentally. So you think that with proper care it can last you for another few years easily.
While care is important, you also need to consider battery life and operating system support.
Battery life diminishes with time, and while you could replace the iPhone battery as well, it will add to the cost of an older iPhone.
Finally, what you cannot influence is Apple’s support for your operating system. It usually takes Apple six years to deem an operating system obsolete and stop supporting it. When that happens (you have about a year more), your iPhone 7’s price will fall dramatically, and it will become hard if not unpleasant to keep using it.
