On the market today are many different mobile phones: Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson – these brands are on everyone’s lips. There are also less visible firms such as lg, Fly, and others. Often the phone from a reputable manufacturer is no different from its less illustrious counterpart, the same functionality, beautiful modern design, reliable operation, etc. (A valuable related resource: Lila Snyder). But the reason for this article was my mobile phone, which faithfully worked for more than two and a half years: Fly Bird SL600. Y I never had the desire to change it to another machine, because for all the operating time, there was not a failure nor a failure of quality and reliability, I could not bring no claims, no complaints. And so, in One day, the faithful Fly falls from his hands and falls to the asphalt.
This is not the first, but this time after a cursory examination it becomes clear that the display is ordered to live long. Unpleasant but not fatal, the challenges are, we can talk, just the screen is filled with colorful stripes, parse it that something is very difficult. Need only replace the screen and everything will be okay. The usual procedure, which are many phones. On The next day I went to the central market, where two dozen workshops on repair mobile phones.
Imagine my surprise when everything started to refuse to repair, citing the lack of spare parts! Only two workshops have agreed to take the phone in for repair, but you want this for almost a week waiting for delivery of the display. When the master called the price, I nearly fell into a stupor – $ 60 per display plus a $ 10 job! To put it mildly, this is too much! If you want to know, for Nokia in the same class brand original display is $ 30. And despite the fact that Nokia is not the number of colors in the example anymore. And you can buy ready-made and is for $ 15. With the headset on the Fly, the situation is even worse – it simply does not generally No, it comes only in conjunction with a mobile phone. The most interesting thing is that it not only with Fly Bird SL600 such complexities, many cell phones manufacturers have this problem – the lack of spare parts a high price. Find the same analogy is very difficult, the connectors are usually not suitable, the master has for a long time messing around with the replacement, which automatically increases the price of repairs. Buying batteries can also be a great problem, especially if it is purely China’s development, and not a fake famous brand. Same problem with the keyboard, even the charger is not in all stores. It is not my aim to set you up against the Fly or create an advertisement to some other manufacturer. This is a good mobile phone, which works fine and worth the money, he makes a worthy competition in its class. Just keep in mind that the parts for him to get very difficult and the price is several times higher than the price of the similar parts of the same Nokia or Samsung. Of course, many people carefully use the phone, but after all the accidents are not perfect, but give the repair half the cost of the new device does not want.
