What Customers Say About Samsung Galaxy S3 Repairs Service

Quick and good quality service - I liked the iSmash Kingston shop, where my phone screen was replaced in under 30 min. The team working there is very helpful and knowledgeable. I was recommended this place by a friend, and now will be recommending it myself to everyone who needs a quick and quality repair.

Alesja Bojarchuk

Fast, efficient service with great end result. Much better than sending off the phone and waiting days to collect it. Would recommend and use again myself if required in the future.

Priti Patel

Excellent Service - I had had my cracked screen replaced by another company, who had damaged the front camera flex whilst doing so. But iSmash were fantastic - identified and remedied the repair quickly and efficiently. I will definitely use iSmash again.

Emile Greenhalgh

Big help and great service - After being able to book a screen replacment in the Fleet Street branch the same day as my phone was broken, I received fantastic service and treatment at iSmash. The repair was perfectly kept to the 30 minute promise and extra reinforcements added to my screen appear well applied and definitely help protect my screen now.

Alex Goss

2 minute fix, no charge - Something from the charge cable got stuck right inside the charge port meaning iPad wouldn't charge. Despite being busy, they fixed it there and then with no charge. Excellent.

FAQs About the Samsung Galaxy S3 Repairs

Here are some of the most common questions we get asked around Samsung Galaxy S3 Repairs - select your issue and see what we can do for you.

My Galaxy S3 has water damage...what should I do?

Firstly, here’s what you shouldn’t do, despite popular opinion! Don’t put your Galaxy S6 in rice, in the airing cupboard or on a radiator. The rice doesn’t do anything to help, and the dry heat from the other two options will cause corrosion. What you should do is retrieve your phone from the washing up bowl or toilet, turn it off and contact us immediately. The quicker you get your water damaged Galaxy S3 to us, the more chance there is of a repair.

My Galaxy S3 camera isn’t working properly - the photos are blurry and I need to take a selfie.

Check there’s nothing blocking the lens. (This might sound simple but it happens!) Use a lint-free cloth to clean it. If your photos are still blurry, resort to IT Support 101 and turn your Galaxy S3 off and on again.

Next, check for and install any software updates. If that doesn’t fix the issue, you should consider a factory reset (making sure you have all your content backed up first).

My Galaxy S3 isn’t holding its charge - do I need a battery replacement?

Not necessarily. There can be several reasons why your device isn’t charging and it might not be due to Galaxy S3 battery problems at all. Here are a few things to check: Shine a torch into the charging port on your phone - if there’s any dirt or grime blocking it, this could be causing the issue. Use a toothbrush (or something that won’t conduct electricity!) to clear it out.

Try a different charging cable - the issue may be here and not with your Galaxy S3 at all. If your phone is dead, try holding down both the power and the home button for 30 seconds - this may reboot the phone.

It may be that if none of the above works, that an Galaxy S3 battery replacement is required. Give us a call here at iSmash and we’ll diagnose the problem for you.

Why is the sound not working on my Galaxy S3?

Please don’t hate us for saying this but...is the volume turned up? If it is, and there’s still no sound, do not fear. We have some hints and tips to help you break the silence. First, ensure there is nothing plugged into the headset jack. Next, check the speaker and dock ports are clean - use a toothbrush to get any gunk out.

If you still have no sound on your Galaxy S3, make sure Bluetooth is turned off, restart the device, and check you have the latest version of Android.

My touchscreen has stopped working - do I need an Galaxy S3 screen replacement?

In order to diagnose this and understand if you need an Galaxy S3 screen repair or replacement, we need to determine if the issue is software or hardware related. If it’s software, you may be able to take some action. First - is it an intermittent problem that only occurs when a certain app is in use? Try uninstalling that app.

As with other common issues, a hard reset is sometimes a good way to clear the phone and restore it to its former glory. Although you shouldn’t do this regularly, it can be a way to fix problems. Do a factory reset by turning off the phone, holding the volume up button and the home button then pressing power. In the factory reset menu, use the volume down key to select the wipe data and factory reset option.

Still no response? It may be a problem with the hardware. If you’ve recently dropped your phone, this could be to blame even if there is no visible damage. It might be that a repair to the circuitry behind the screen, or an Galaxy S3 replacement screen is necessary and iSmash will be able to help.

Help! I have some Galaxy S3 problems but I’m not sure exactly what the fault is.

We realise that not all issues with your phone are easy to categorise, and sometimes you may have Galaxy S3 problems that are more general. Perhaps it keeps freezing, or your Galaxy S3 is not turning on. That’s why iSmash offer a device fault diagnostic service - get in touch and we’ll get an answer to you within 24-48 hours of receiving your Galaxy S3.
