Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take to repair my Galaxy S3?

We strive to repair your device as fast as possible, however, it really depends on what part of your device needs to be fixed.

LCD Replacement normally takes about 1 hour, since it has to be glued back to the phone’s frame and clamped for at least half an hour.

All other repairs including Battery, Back Glass, Charge Port, Camera, Buttons, Speakers and Microphone will usually take about 25 – 35 minutes.

Software Repairs time varies and depends on what kind of issue you’re facing. Normally we take cell phones with software related problems for at least 1 hour, however if the issue is difficult (e.g. dead boot loader, corrupted EFS) – then we’d prefer to have your device for 24 hours.

Data Transfer/Backup will only take about 15-20 minutes but may extend if the volume of backed up data increases.

Liquid Damaged Recovery is a time consuming process, thus we usually take phones for at least one day – ultrasonic cleaning, corroded contacts and pins take a while to get cleaned up.

Will I lose data on my Galaxy S3?

Absolutely no, you won’t lose any data if we perform regular repairs like screen repair or battery replacement.
Moreover, in case if you’re worried about the info on your device – we can make a full backup including apps, logs, texts and calls.

What kind of smartphone parts do you use for my Galaxy S3?

Original parts are always used for Samsung cell phones. We get them directly from the manufacturer and they are considered to be OEM made.

How do I know if my Galaxy S3 battery needs replacing?

The lithium-ion battery installed in your device should operate for at least 500 charging cycles before you notice a decrease in capacity. At Geek Workshop we are able to test your phone’s battery and let you know its capacity as well as number of charging cycles. The common time to replace the battery is when its capacity is below 80%
