Any repair shops or anyone can fix a broken Pixel 2 scren?
I broke a Pixel 2 this week While long distance cycling, phone dropped to the pavement. I could have stored it better.
The screen is cracked, and because the phone is engineered in a way that the screen is integrated with its functions (according to the internet), if the screen is broken, the phone doesn’t work. Ya, my phone doesn’t work.
The phone is 4 months old, but I did not purchase Preferred Care so the default warranty does not cover user-created problems like drops, sigh. I’m a bit salty about spending money to buy a new phone, so I’m trying out living without a phone for now, and so far its been a nice opportunity to live unplugged!
Meanwhile, the cheapest options so far seem to be:
a. mailing to Google or authorized repair service to fix it ($7500 TWD ish)
b. buying a new phone in TW ($6000 my local taiwanese host suggests this is the starting point for a phone that will last more than a year)
I’m wondering if there are cheaper options for when I might want a phone again? Does anyone know if anyone or any repair shops in TW can fix a Google Pixel 2 screen?
I might eventually also look for a used phone with a good camera as that’s the only feature I kinda miss—capturing photos from my pocket!
Tagging @ranlee who also owns a Pixel 2. (Also!! Are you the same ranlee on the LINE TW cycling group? If so, I’m Francine :)! Haaai!! If anyone messaged me and I didn’t respond … it’s because I broke my phone :p!)
