This place is a hidden gem. My broken screen was able to be superbly fixed with no issues just as they were about to close. They were so accommodating, knowledgeable, and took such an initiative in making sure I got my phone screen fixed regardless of the time. Other places should model this one📱📲🤳⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️-Joanna

Had an unfortunate problem with my school/work laptop. Took it to GadgetBar for a diagnosis and repair and the process went extremely smooth! They are very knowledgeable about almost all things tech and their pricing is increasingly reasonable!

Gadgetbar will do you right. Couple years ago fixed my phone screen very affordably. This time my charging port wasn't working and my man got it fixed in 3 minutes. Fast, quality, and affordable. Highly recommend.

I have an iPhone 6+ which has the touch disease and I didn’t pay Apple to store all the precious pictures of my kids so I was all paranoid about losing all my pictures if I can’t get into my phone again. First I took my phone to a phone repair store at my town based on their good reviews. It took them a month to look at my phone and at the end they told me they couldn’t fix it. So I went to pick my phone back and found out they didn’t put back a few screws inside my phone! Not only that, my phone was full of dust meaning my phone just sat there opened for a month! My bf called them up and told them nicely of what we experienced, they put the screws back and apologized.Then a friend of mine referred me to another repair shop in Elgin called “Ben’s”.My bf helped me to take my phone to their shop. The receptionist couldn’t answer any of my questions, my bf politely asked whether the Tech could talk to me and explained to me everything she needed to know before we proceeded the repair. The Tech in the store were yelling and told my bf there’s no guarantee of fixing it, they would charge me no matter what outcome was. The Tech refused to talk to me and let me explain what’s going on with my phone.My bf left the store and I wasn’t happy with the whole attitude they threw at us at Ben’s.Called my local repair store again and asked about how much to replace the ic chip of my phone, they told me to bring the phone in again which I thought they may be able to fix it this time.I was totally wrong! Not only they didn’t fix it they messed up my screen even more that the screen were showing “Phone is disabled, connect to iTunes “ after I picked it up again. I wasn’t happy at all as this could cause more problems to fix it!Then I researched and found GadgetBar! Reviews were fantastic but still had a little doubt because my local store got great reviews too but they obviously didn’t know what they were doing. I checked the website and found out GadgetBar had the cell phone repair certification which I felt more confident that my phone had a hope to be fixed. Drove 40 minutes to drop off my phone to Brian. He explained to me clearly of what I wanted to ask. He followed up with me multiple times and he always had a positive attitude to make me feel my phone can be fixed which he did save my phone! I am so so so happy to have found Brian! He absolutely did care about his customers and knows what he’s doing! Now my 6+ ‘s screen is fixed and all the pictures are saved! Brian is the hero! His price is very reasonable too! After seeing what a professional tech Brian is, I bought my 8+ for him to replace my battery and he continued to apply his professional skill on my other phone.Gadgetbar is the only place I will go for if my phone or iPad needs to be fixed! I won’t chance it with other people after the previous bad experiences. You can trust Brian completely with his professional skills and fantastic customer services! Thank you again Brian for all you have done!

This guy has helped me out so much over the years with cracks/breaks at a reasonable price. Doesn’t matter if you walk in 5 minutes before close or 5 after open, he will always take the time and effort to help you with your problem(s). If I could give a rating higher than 5 stars, I would in a heartbeat.

I've worked in sales for 8 1/2 years and have a very high personal standard for customer service I give. When I go somewhere as the customer, I likewise have high personal standards. Brian, met and exceeded my standards. I could tell just from my initial phone call that he was a genuine and knowledgeable person. After meeting him, he confirmed I was right. He's friendly, cares about helping his customers, knows his stuff, is ethical and has fair prices. If you need any cell phone work or repair, be sure to call Brian!

Brian provides quick and well-priced services and has gone above and beyond each time I've come in (even when it's a less than convenient time).He's extremely informative and communicative about the work he does, and I seem to learn something new when I stop by. While I hate to damage my phone, it makes it a pleasure to come in. I drop his name every time someone local has a phone issue and won't stop doing so any time soon!

Brian at GadgetBar provides white glove service for his customers. I had crashed my dji mavic mini drone and broke one of the arms on the drone. He replaced the broken arm and made it work like brand new! His rates are great too! I’ll be coming back for all my gadget needs.

I've gone to gadget bar twice. First to fix a cracked iphone screen and then for water damage to a samsung s9 (I'm a bit of a clutz.). Both times I felt the work was well done and fairly priced and I left happy! Its especially nice to find a place that does work on Samsung devices, I highly recommend it!

Brian is a solid guy!. Got me in right away to replace my iPhone screen while I waited.. Simple in and out, plus in the down time he has a super cool store dog to play with!.. 1st time experience there, great prices, friendly and very professional!. As I was waiting I noticed he carried himself in a very professional manor w/a customer that wasn’t to friendly and in my opinion this customer might have hit happy hour a little early.. I’m a new fan of the Gadget Bar for sure.. Might even drop off a bone for that store dog, my new buddy.. 👍🏻

Amazing experience, absolutely great customer service. I went in because my phone was damaged due to water. He gave me all of my options, even sent me to Apple to try and save me money. Turned out fixing it through him was my best option. He saved me hundreds of dollars and my phone works great.

Brian is super fast, detailed, precise, and a great deal. Recently, he replaced the batteries in my son's cell and my cell. Also, on New Year's Eve, he literally swapped out the screen on my daughter's laptop, tightened up the case and repaired all of the damage to the case, while I was standing there, just so my daughter could use it that night with her friends. Thanks Brian.

i brought a Lenovo Yoga laptop in for repair; it would no longer charge. As things turned out, it was a very difficult problem to diagnose. Gadget Bar's staff, specifically Brian, was very persistent in figuring out the cause of the problem. While never giving up, he also continuously kept me informed about progress, explained his process in detail and charged a very fair amount for the total time he spent. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE ALL AROUND. THANKS!

Fantastic Experience with Drone Repair. I came in with my Inspire drone and Brian was very helpful from the start. I got off work late and arrived about 15 minutes before close. He still was there and willing to help me out with my problem and stayed after hours to help me with the repair. Overall great experience and for any tech that needs to be fixed I will be heading there!

Main  If you ever need to repair your phone or other electronic device, you absolutely should go to GadgetBar! Brian is super knowledgeable and goes above and beyond. I had a shattered screen on my cell phone, and while other repair shops said it was unfixable, Brian repaired the screen. Not only that, but he stayed late to ensure the phone was fixed that night! I highly recommend GadgetBar, you will not be disappointed!

Main  Just call me butterfingers. I drop my phone all the time. I have a solid case and screen protector. Well, oops I did it again and cracked both the screen and screen protector enough that it warranted replacing. The owner of the company was thorough and very professional. He communicated very well with me and I had my phone back in no time! On his recommendations I purchased a new screen protector and he installed it straight away. Highly recommend!!

Main  We replaced two screens (iPad Air 2 and Pro) at Gadget Bar, after two months the home buttons on both iPads stopped working for some reason, probably part issues. Brian (Gadget Bar owner) fixed the issue at no additional cost, and showed he cares about his reputation and clients. I hope the issues will not arise again.  We are satisfied with the way he dealt with us.

Main  I've used these guys several times, for computers, tablets and mobile phones. For quality work (which you always need), speed (when you need it), talking you through your options, and HONESTY (depressingly unusual), they're simply tops in their category. Five stars, thumbs way up, whatever you want to say.

Main  Brian at the Gadget Bar is awesome.  We have a built-in fireplace in our sunroom with a remote control that has an LCD screen and a few buttons.  The buttons all stopped working a while back and we couldn't find a new remote anywhere.  So, while it was probably an unusual request, we brought it to Brian and he couldn't have been any nicer or more enthusiastic about helping us fix it.  He took it apart and confirmed that all the buttons on the circuit board were worn out.  He found the exact button replacements online from a random Chinese supplier, ordered them for us, and soldered them onto the circuit board.  The remote works like new again.  Parts and labor were very reasonable - certainly less than buying a new remote.  I would encourage you to look around your house for electronics that aren't working and bring them to The Gadget Bar to let Brian tinker with them!

Main  While trying to swap out the hard drive on my daughter's computer I broke a component off of the power button board.  I could not find a replacement and I was thinking it will be crazy if I have to buy a new laptop over this.  I brought it into Brian and he soldered the component back onto the board.  It was not an easy task, it was a complicated job because the circuit was on its side and it had three contact points. He not only fixed power button board, but also fixed one of the keys on the keyboard, and tightened up the touchpad.  All for a VERY good price.  I highly recommend the Gadget Bar!

Main  I have been there three times before and on my fourth visit the manager was very unpleasant to work with. He didn't recognize me although I was a repeat customer. He took his time making his way to the front and seemed unwilling to help with my problem. Felt like he was only willing to meet me half way, and told me to go elsewhere for a cracked screen.
