Have you ever ran into manufacturing issues? Not long ago we asked you if you did self-repairs, and while we expected that kind of outlook from our savvy community, sometimes there is no easy work-around for hardware faults. Recurring to warranties is what the brave of us do when all else fails, despite our venturing into the forbidden roots of Android being denied by our phones’ manufacturers. And when this is our last option, departing from our favorite device can be quite a journey.in itself. This is especially true to us at XDA, as we typically make our devices truly our own through modding, tweaking and theming. What devices have you lost to manufacturing or hardware defects, and what helped you “cope” with it?

The embedded video is a satirical capitulation of XDA Editorial Team Member Mario’s own Note 4’s trip to where phones go to get better. Its contents were shot with a backup Galaxy Note 3, and everything displayed were true events. We hope you enjoy its tongue-in-cheek execution as much as Mario enjoyed making it. Remember, it’s not to be taken too seriously! So sit back and check out the video!
