This section will walk you through how to get started with the app’s simple yet powerful features, enabling you to diagnose, troubleshoot, and maintain your device with ease. To take advantage of all the latest features of our newest version launch, ensure your app is up to date.
Getting Started with the App
The Mobile Klinik Device Checkup app is available on mobile in the App Store and Google Play.
Downloading the Mobile Klinik Device Checkup App
First, open the App Store if you’re an iOS user or Google Play if you have an Android device. Search “Mobile Klinik Device Checkup app” and download it for free. This is the same process you’d follow with any other app download. Upon opening the app, you’ll be asked to agree to the terms and conditions. You’ll get a quick overview of the features before landing on the main menu, where you can explore all the different options.
Exploring the App Features for Device Optimization
Within the Device Checkup app, there are different functions you can explore, all dedicated to optimizing your device and user experience:
- Checkup: This is one of the main features of our app. Here, you can run diagnostics tests and get tips for improving your device’s performance within a couple of minutes. You can select which assessments you’d like to perform, including those for the audio, battery, camera, network connectivity, display, storage, and software.
- Repair: This app feature allows you to get custom quotes for repairs like your screen, battery, and more.
- Sell Your Phone: Clicking on this option provides an on-the-spot estimate of your device’s worth by guiding you through a series of questions and functionality tests—it takes just a few minutes!
- Find a Store: This is a convenient way to find your nearest location at the click of a button.
- Buy a Phone: You can browse Mobile Klinik’s selection of Certified Pre-Owned devices and get access to our latest promotions and partner offers.
- Book an Appointment: Conveniently book a time slot at your nearest location for all your mobile needs.
Performing a Health Check
As mentioned, the Checkup function is one of the main features of our app. You can run it from the Home or Checkup tab. This will take you to a screen that will show you the estimated time it will take to run the tests. You will also have the option to select and deselect specific tests, including:
- Network connectivity
For example, if you only want to test your battery, you can deselect the other options and hit “Start.”
Once you begin the test, you’ll be prompted with directions on the screen. Some assessments are automatic, while others may require action from your end, like snapping a photo or speaking into the microphone. Each test provides insight into your smartphone or tablet’s condition and develops the foundation for optimization recommendations.
Initiating the Optimization Process
The optimization process begins when you run a Health Check. After the Health Check is complete, you’ll get smart suggestions designed to help you enhance your device for performance and extended use. Some examples of tips include:
- Disabling push notifications for unused apps to save battery life.
- Deleting unused apps to save storage space.
- Restarting your device once a week to help retain device memory, prevent crashes, and prolong battery life.
These suggestions are categorized based on importance. “Recommendations” appear as a green check mark, serving as helpful tips to improve your user experience. For example, if you’re an iPhone user, you may get pointers on:
- How to rearrange home screen icons.
- Using Siri to help you find your AirPods.
- How to search for photos using words that describe the image you’re looking for.
A “Warning,” on the other hand, highlights more critical findings and their solutions that may require your immediate attention.
The Health Check feature is not just about evaluating the state of your phone or tablet. It’s also about providing actionable steps to help you prolong your device’s lifespan. If these tests reveal significant issues, you may require a repair—we make this next step easy for you.
Finding a Repair Store
If you find that your device requires some extra TLC, select the “Repair” tab in the app to view pricing lists, find your nearest location from over 150 Mobile Klinik stores, or book an appointment. You can also call our customer support to get a quote for your repair.
You can even take it a step further: Get a custom quote right in the app for most phones for repairs like battery issues, screen cracks, and more.
No matter where you bought your device or what brand and model it is, our experts are trained with the proper knowledge and tools to get it working like new again. We can tackle any repair, including but not limited to:
- Battery replacements
- Screen repairs
- Water damage
- Performance issues
Selling Your Phone
If it comes time to part ways with your phone, you can get an evaluation and quote right in the app. When you select this option from the Home or Checkup tab, you’ll need to answer some questions and perform tests, such as for the microphone, camera, touchscreen, and buttons. At the end of these assessments, you’ll receive a trade-in estimate, which a Mobile Klinik technician will confirm at your nearest location after an inspection. This quote is typically valid for seven days.
When you sell your phone to us, we will provide you with a prepaid Visa gift card or store credit. If we determine that your device has no significant resale value, we’ll happily take it off your hands, wipe all your data, and harvest it for parts to contribute to the circular economy.
