Mobile Klinik Professional Smartphone Repair is a national franchise, providing the best phone repair not only in Calgary but also in other major Canadian cities.
It’s a well-known repair shop that even Huawei, LG, and Samsung trust as an authorized repair shop. So, should you have units that still qualify for the 1-year warranty these brands offer, then you can approach Mobile Klinik for authorized repairs.
But because Mobile Klinik mainly uses authentic replacement parts, you should also expect some waiting time.
For convenience, Mobile Klinik has three locations around Calgary. These shops are even open all week with late closing hours.
If you can’t visit any of its locations, you can send your device via courier and Mobile Klinik will return it after fixing it, most likely on the same day. Besides, Mobile Klinik can even bring the repair right to your home or office upon request.
And should they find your phone beyond repair, Mobile Klinik can help you choose a new unit from their selection of Google, Blackberry, Samsung, Apple, LG, Motorola, and Huawei phones. While these devices may already be pre-owned, they still come with a 1-year warranty and free shipping.
Read these reviews to know what to expect should you choose Mobile Klinik as your phone repair shop:
“I was very impressed with the professional, exceptional service with Raman. She was very thorough in the diagnostics and suggested a solution within a short period of time. Although she was busy, she had the patience of looking into my problem with ease. Would highly recommend this place.”—Mebs Ebrahim
“Mobile Klinik helped me out a great deal! They were super friendly and showcased outstanding service. I came for a broken iPhone 8 port, and the lady who helped me cleaned it out and got it working free of charge! Super awesome. She was honest about my product and it’s value so I couldn’t be happier.

CaseMogul Phone Repairs, a part of a globally certified phone repair company, is yet another repair shop you can visit in Market Mall.
It offers lots of guarantees, with the first one being its free diagnostic services. So, you can visit this repair shop even if you haven’t pinpointed what type of repair services it needs.
After diagnosing your phone’s problem, CaseMogul will then proceed with the type of repair you need. It can do glass-only, screen, motherboard, button, speaker, battery, and camera repairs.
Additionally, CaseMogul also accepts water-damaged devices and conducts data recovery. However, you should know that we’ve heard and read complaints about the quality of its screen replacements.
Luckily, CaseMogul provides an unbeatable lifetime warranty for all its repairs, except for batteries which only come with a 90-day warranty. It even has a No Fix, No Charge policy.
Aside from all these guarantees, we also like that CaseMogul also allows its customers to track their phone’s repair progress through its website. To check your repair status, you’d need to input your ticket number on CaseMogul’s website.
Lastly, they aren’t just a iPhone repair shop. In fact, they can fix various brands of phones, including Samsung, Google, and LG.
CaseMogul’s customers even claim that they prefer going to this shop than to mobile flagship stores. Here are some customer reviews to tell you more:
“My iPhone needed a simple repair. The Apple Store located within the same shopping mall needed an appointment booked for said repair and the wait time will be a week long due to COVID-19 restrictions. Case Mogul in Market Mall took my iPhone in for the repair immediately after dropping in and completed the repair on the same day. I will highly recommend their services for your iPhones and avoid the headaches from the Apple Store, especially when the Apple Store suffers from backlogs and administrative red tape when conducting their customer service. Thank you Case Mogul.”—David Lam
“My past three experiences at CaseMogul have stood out because the service standards are consistent, the repairs are done in a timely fashion and the policy is clear. I appreciate the staff and the way they have taken care of my devices that I would be concerned were unrepairable, as I had been told by my mobile phone providers. CaseMogul had my back and saved me potentially THOUSANDS of dollars in replacing devices. I couldn’t be happier – THANK YOU!”—Kaylee Szott

iBROKEN offers not only the best phone repair in Calgary but also the best repairs for computers and other gadgets. It may be a local brand, with over three locations in the city alone, but it certainly delivers world-class repairs.
While it already has numerous convenient locations around Calgary that are open all week, iBROKEN also offers mail-in repairs.
iBROKEN guarantees to fix phones within 60–90 minutes and for a reasonable price. However, know that this guarantee is only available for those who’ve booked an appointment before visiting its location.
If you wish to make an appointment with iBROKEN, you need only answer its detailed and user-friendly appointment form online. However, you should know that this online form is only for those in need of screen replacements.
That said, iBROKEN is mostly only for screen and battery replacements. Luckily, it provides such service to a wide range of phone brands.
But because it uses authentic OLED replacement parts, you should also expect expensive pricing from this store. Some have even complained that its prices were higher compared to that of the flagship stores’.
Regardless, we think that this Samsung, Google, and iPhone repair shop is still one that you can visit if ever your mobile is acting up.
Aside from its technical expertise, iBROKEN is also praised for its professional and straightforward customer service. Here are customers that have said the same things:
“Mick was excellent! He was straightforward with the options and pricing and not pushy. My phone was fixed with a new screen and battery within 2 hours.”—Kristy Buller
“I had a very chill and awesome experience. My technician, Mick, was very professional and knowledgeable. He explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. He was also transparent with the prices and was kind enough to give me a discount to save a few bucks. I would definitely comeback to this place if I had issues with my phone again. Would recommend this place to family and friends!!”—Ej Mac

While its onsite repair services make Cellphone iRepair accessible, it still can’t accommodate customers on Sundays.

Here are some reviews from their previous clients:
“One of my children was riding a bike with phone in her pocket hoping to “hatch an egg”. She rode over a speed-bump throwing a Samsung Galaxy S5 out of her pocket and shattering the glass on pavement. Filled with appropriate level of shame for this Pokémon Go related incident, I took my phone in for glass replacement yesterday.
As advised by staff, I dropped it off at store-open and it was ready for pickup by store-close the same day. My whole experience with the iPhix team was excellent. They were respectful, helpful, and patient. The end result is better than I hoped. Thanks for a job well done!”
“I brought my Nexus 5 in for a screen replacement, but when I received it back I noticed that the casing had been cracked during the repair, just below the volume rocker. I brought it back into the store to ask about warranty and was told they didn’t cover it but they would follow up with their manager and give me a call. After waiting over a week with no follow-up call I called back into the store and although they remembered the issue, there was nothing that could be done for me. Annoyed that they hadn’t at least called me back like they said they would, I emailed the manager (Cindy) directly and explained what had happen. She responded almost immediately apologizing for the treatment I had received and saying this was the first she had heard of the issue. After a few emails back and forth she asked if I would bring the phone back into the store to have it examined by one of the senior technicians. I did so, and left the phone with him to take a look at. When I came back to pick it up they had fixed the crack at no charge. So in the end I received the service I believe I should have in the first place, however it took some persistence, as the counter staff, while very friendly, didn’t follow up on the problem like they said they would. Cindy was fantastic in all of her response and concern to the issue however, which is the reason I am giving a four star rating and would consider bringing my phone back there for future fixes.
I should note that the screen replacement they did do for me was excellent as well, and if it weren’t for the cracked casing and issues that followed it would have been a 5 star rating.”
