핸드폰 평가 방법

우리 모두는 소유하고 있는 기기들의 수리가 더욱 수월하기 원합니다—결국, 수리 용이성은 기기 수명과 의미가 같습니다. 우리는 모든 기기가 10점을 받기를 바라지만, 단지 몇 개만 성공할 것입니다. 무엇이 수리 용이한 기기를 만드냐고요?

우선, 기기 열기 어려움에 따라서 점수를 깎습니다. 기기를 열 수 없다면, 어떻게 수리를 하겠습니까? 일단 내부에 진입하면, 어떤 패스너를 사용했는지 주목합니다. 특허 나사 또는 접착제? 싫다 싫어! 십자 나사? 훨씬 낫네요!

우리가 계속해서 기기 내부를 살펴볼수록, 교체하기 쉬운 모듈식 부품, 자주 교체하는 부품 중심의 접근성, 그리고 개선 가능성은 우리를 미소를 짓게 하고 점수판에 점수를 추가합니다. 마지막으로, 완벽한 10점을 얻으려면, 제조사에서 제공하는 기기 무료 수리 설명서도 있어야 합니다.

어떤 기기들이 우리 수리인들의 승인을 받았을까요? 자사의 스마트폰 수리 점수 목록을 아래에서 확인하고, 여러 제품 추천을 원한다면 태블릿 수리 점수, 그리고 노트북 수리 점수를 확인하세요.
