Cell Phone Repair Vs. Insurance Replacement

Everyone knows that nowadays smartphones are both expensive in terms of the price (The average smartphone price is around $600!) and with the time it takes to buy a new one and replace all of your old contacts and media. Losing a smartphone due to any kind of damage is a harrowing experience now, considering that most of our social lives now are always connected through our phones. Almost every person is used to using social sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and if you use them on your cellular device and that device happens to get ruined, you may lose significant data that you may have wanted to preserve. One easy way to make sure that your phone will be quickly repaired while damaged is finding a knowledgeable and reputable repair place to fix it; and for those who feel like they do not want to deal with the prospect of finding a store to get their device fixed, you can now purchase insurance for your expensive cell phone. There are pros and cons for both finding stores yourself and going through the insurance process, and we will address those pros and cons in the following paragraphs.

One pro with finding your own store is that the price of the repair in store generally costs less than the deductible that the insurance will charge you for replacing the screen. For example, I personally moved to Vegas a while ago, and while I was going through the airport I accidentally dropped my iPhone. It cracked the screen to bits, and I knew I was going to need a repair as soon as possible. The only thing I had to do was go on the internet and look up Cell Phone repair Las Vegas on google, and I found a very reputable shop called Einstein Repairs. I had brought my phone to them, told them that I needed an iPhone glass replacement as soon as possible, and they began work. Not only did I get the phone back in the same day, but I also had to pay $100 dollars less than what I would have had to pay my insurance. I also did not lose any of my information on my phone, which is a major pro when it comes to quick repair.

A con regarding doing a repair through a shop though is that you need to put some effort into finding a shop that will do quality work and can be trusted with your phone. A cell phone is a very personal device, and you want to make sure that the shop you go to recognizes that. It might take a little to find the right shop for you, but in the end not only will it cost less, but it will also take less time to repair the device versus replacing it with a brand new one from the insurance.

Another pro that comes with repairing your phone at a shop though is that they will try to repair your phone no matter what. Some phone insurance plans only cover certain damages. If your phone happens to be damaged by a force that is not covered in your insurance plan, you cannot get your phone replaced. There are also many stipulations in which you can void your phone, one most notably being the process of jailbreaking or rooting (which has become a very popular process) your phone. I had a friend that had a limited insurance plan on his Samsung S5, and he was looking for a Samsung Digitizer replacement through his insurance. The insurance would not help him because of one reason. Unlocking and rooting his phone voided his insurance, so he was stuck with an insurance plan that would not help him. This is a pain that many go through, where a single thing can void insurance on an expensive phone. Luckily, he went to a repair shop and got his phone fixed within the same day, and now he knows what to do if something like this ever arises again.

One thing that you may be able to consider a con though is that with a repair, you still have that same phone and not a brand new one. When you go through insurance to replace your phone, if they deem it “unrepairable”, they’ll send you a brand new phone of the same model. You do not get that luxury with a repair. This could be considered a double-edged sword issue though; you either get a brand new device through insurance that has none of your information on it, or get your device repaired through a shop and be able to keep all of your information on it.

There are a couple pros and cons when it comes to replacing your phone via insurance and repairing your phone at a shop. Through personal experience, I would always choose repairing my phone at a shop. It costs less, I do not have to abide by strict insurance policies, and I get to keep all of my information on my phone. Some might like replacing their phone through their insurance though, it all comes down to personal preference. Either way, you will never want to be stuck with an expensive, broken phone.

Porn and Electrons Clash in Las Vegas

May 17, 2014 in Consumer electronics Show, Las Vegas CES and Adult Expo, Porn Convention in Las Vegas by Jess

Las Vegas adult expo

If you’re a fan of the latest technology who also happens to enjoy the occasional porn film (don’t we all?), you might want to take the entire month of January 2015 off from work and head out to Sin City.

Las Vegas will host both the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Association Show from January 6th through the 9th as well as the 2015 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo from January 21st through the 24th.

CES, as its known by the press is usually the big coming out party for whatever is being worked on by the tech industry’s biggest titans. This past year in 2014, we saw the likes of Samsung, Sony and others demo their new curved-display televisions. Valve finally announced their new Steambox console for the living room and Michael Bay completely freaked out on stage while trying to pitch Samsung’s new tablets.

No specific announcements have been made for the 2015 CES as of yet, but one thing most observers will have an eye out for is any announcement from the folks at Oculus Rift about their new VR headset. The company made major headlines when it was announced a few months ago that Facebook had bought out the company for billions of dollars. We still don’t have a working model available to the general public yet,and there are are a number in the tech community who are concerned that a huge corporate company like Facebook might actually hurt the development process. CES 2015 could be a major opportunity for the company to start winning back public support if they have a model ready to show to the public by then.

One last thing to be aware of is the upcoming deluge of smartwatches. It’s been rumored that Apple will announce a smartwatch by the end of 2014 and other companies like Samsung have already created a line of tech-based watches. Next year’s CES could be the big coming out party for this still relatively new product category.

People will be staring at an entirely different kind of “hot product” just a couple of weeks later when AVN comes to town. The annual AVN convention in Las Vegas is the porn industry’s biggest gathering of the year. It concludes on the final night of the convention with the annual AVN Awards, kind of like an Oscars ceremony for porn.

But the three days that precede it are every porn fan’s dream. The three day long expo allows the general public to mingle with industry stars, all the while checking out the latest hot movie releases as well as the latest adult themed novelties and toys. Most attendees hire Vegas Escorts Agencies for personal companionship

The show is held every year at the Hard Rock Cafe Hotel and Casino in Vegas. Walking the show floor here is a very different experience than at CES, obviously. It’s not unusual to see a half naked woman at just about every direction you turn.

Both CES and AVN are known for holding some pretty cool after parties, although the adult themed ones obviously get a little bit more crazy. Both shows bring in mainstream Hollywood stars to pitch products or just to mingle with guests.

If you don’t have any major plans for the start of the New Year, you might want to give Las Vegas a look. Only Sin City could host two major conventions on this scale within two weeks of each other. Hire for your one on one adult personal compaionship. Click here to book your reservations.
