“At iSmash our mission is to keep customers connected to the devices they love in order to create a world without #techstress

We love helping people stay connected. This can mean anything from replacing their front facing camera so they can carry on taking 100 selfies a day, replacing the battery on their phone so they don’t have to face the commute home without any music or replacing the broken screen ruining the memories in their photos app or distracting them from their favourite Netflix show.


We know how important a mobile device is to people and making sure we can repair their technology to the highest standard, quickly and with a friendly smile is how we roll.


For us, being there for them to empathise with them and help them understand the options open to them and then importantly fixing their device is what we’re all about.


If you’re like us, you love connecting with people, helping them to feel at ease when they need it the most and recommending solutions to help them repair their device, protect it in the future and find the right accessories to help fit into their lifestyle.
