Does a new device actually mean a better device?

The answer to that question may seem very straightforward: “of course, replace it with a new better one”. But things are not that simple unfortunately. The common myth that implies that new is always better is not true. For example, some new devices may be of larger screens which you do not like or heavier than older versions. Maybe a new device drains more battery than the old one which is critical to your daily use then makes you annoyed all the time. Perhaps you got used to your old device and it would be hard to start dealing with a new device. Also, there are many other examples which lead to the same conclusion: new is not always better.

  Collin is the master. I had a broken iPad mini. Began by getting a quote from Collin. He answered me right away before this business hours even started. I dropped off the broken iPad mini screen and he was finished in about three hours. They called me up and had it ready. Collin was friendly and knows his stuff. I suggest anyone who broke their screen to check them out. "

  My 9 year old dropped his iPad mini shattering the screen and was devastated. I found this place through groupon and immediately purchased a voucher. The carle place store is amazing. Very clean and faster than i had expected. I went in and Nora greeted me. She is courteous and professional. I asked how long it would take and she surprised me by saying less than an hour. "
