2017 has been a wonderful whirlwind year full of surprises and many achievements for the Uberfone team. Every year seems to be getting better for us, we expand as a team, new projects unfold, new products are introduced and it is because of both our staff and loyal customers that we strive to continue to deliver the best products and customer service.
In early 2017 we introduced our newest scheme. We developed a Corporate/Education Business to Business contract which gave local businesses and schools the opportunity to use our repair service for their employees phones and tablets. Included in the service was a fast pick up and drop off delivery service, discounts on the devices and protective accessories. We gained many clients who continue to use our services.
The BeeTuff Collection was designed in house by the Uberfone team. We wanted to create a range of cases that were protective, durable yet stylish. The main aesthetic of the gel cases is that they feature a shock absorbent frame which is to limit physical damages and wear and tear. Included in the range are the BeeTuff Gem Gel, Mesh Gel, Clear Gel and variety of Wallet Cases. With their variety of colours there is a case to suit everyone!
Our greatest achievement not only of the year but to date was being nominated then going on to win ‘Best Family Business’ at the Belfast Business Awards. This award completely blew us away, we of course hoped to win but never expected it. It was a fantastic night at the Titanic Museum and a night we will always remember.
As a team we do love a challenge, especially when it comes down to a store refurb! Over the years we have took on a new look and each Uberfone store will be refurbished. Our Newry store was next on the list and it was all hands on deck. The store now looks like what we visioned it to look like and we could not have completed it without the help of our fabulous team. Check it out when you are passing through the Buttercrane Shopping Centre!
To finish off the year we were nominated and shortlisted for ‘Best Employer of The Year’ at the UTVEye Awards in Bangor. To even be in the same category as Lidl and Christies Direct to name a few was an achievement in itself. We are committed to providing excellent customer service and supplying amazing products for you, we hope this shows when you visit our stores and purchase our products.

Lots of new stock has arrived for this season and we cannot wait to show you the goodies! We do admit that we have a slight obsession with Power bank gadgets and are continuously researching for the perfect product and taking inspirations from various brands. In our stores your feedback on our products is always welcomed and we listen to what YOU want!! The desired power bank that you wanted was to look good with a metallic design, be compact but not too chunky and have an incredible storage mAh, well we have went and designed one with these aesthetics in mind, yayy!!
Our new Uberfone Power Banks come in two versions of mAh- 5,000 (£24,99) and 10,000 (£29.99) charge it up fully and depending on how often you use it during the day, it should last you 1-2 days, maybe even 3!

They are available in five metallic colours red, black, silver, gold and rose gold to suit everyone. Do you have more than one device? This power bank will also charge your iPad, tablet, iPod, MP4, MP5 and many more.
We like to search for things that are unique so when we sourced the Wooden Induction Speaker (£15.99), we knew this could look nice as part of your home decor or would be perfect outside in the garden for a BBQ party. There is no need for a bluetooth connection, just put your mobile phone’s speaker onto the induction area of the product and the speaker will start to work. This product has a built-in dual induction zone at the left and right corners, a new way of listening to your favourite tunes!
Summer bodies are made in the Winter so add a Sports Armband (£4.99) to your gym kit! Our customers wanted an armband that featured more space and a zip fastening, we’ve got you covered! We have both a large and small size available to suit any phone model you may have! For example an iPhone 6/7 size will fit snuggly in the smaller size, however an iPhone 6/7 Plus size and larger Samsung Galaxy models would be more suitable to the large armband. There is plenty of room for you phone and a secret compartment inside for any cards or notes or little bits and bobs if you’re going on an adventure!
The infamous Mini Tripod (£4.99) has made a return to our shelves due to popular demand!

At Uberfone our researchers and merchandising team continuously strive to discover the best designs and cases that we believe will provide essential protection to your phone so that you have it for longer. We understand the expense of buying the latest model on the market and know the heart break of coughing up a fortune to repair them when they hit the deck. This is where our Sales Guru’s can help you out in store by recommending the best cases and accessories that can be a game changer if this happens to you. In particular, a phone case from our new collection, ‘BEE TUFF‘ would be perfect for you! Each style in the range has been designed in house with inspirations taken from brands we admire and styles that we know are going to offer the best protection yet offer a stylish appeal. The entire Bee Tuff collection is available for iPhone models 5/6/7/7+ and Samsung models S7, S7 Edge, S8 and S8 Plus!
First up we have the BEE TUFF Wallet style case. These are amazing quality and come in 4 basic yet sleek colours- Pink, Red, Black and Brown to suit everyone. This case features handy additional compartments inside for cards and notes-suitable for those multi-taskers on the go! With a built in stand, this case is perfect if you want to watch content on your phone or play music through while you do you daily tasks, or be a slob at night watching Netflix! With all of these features included and at a price of just £14.99 this is the next best product to be in your pocket or handbag!
If you seek a case embodied with a gem/diamond design, then the BEE TUFF GEM (£14.99) style case (bottom left) is the one for you. The vibrant coloured gels in a Mint, Blue and Rose colour and the top seller at the moment is the Rose gel! Around it’s perimeter are shock absorbers which are designed to take away some of the impact when dropped. You can pick any colour that you like, however we have decided that the silver back iPhone matches better with the mint green and blue gel and the rose gold and gold back iPhone matches the rose coloured gel the most! If you are not keen on a wallet style then this case is the next best thing and combined with a tempered glass screen protector from Uberfone you stand a good chance of having your phone for longer.
Within the collection, we had to keep the guys in mind to what they may like! If Gem gel is not your thing, take a look at our BEE TUFF MESH gel cases (£14.99). They are a similar design to the Gem style with a mesh detail throughout each colour. This case comes in more generic colours so that there is an option for everyone- Black, Black and Red, White and Pink. Also featuring shock absorbers inside for those hairy moments that we all have!
If you are a fan of this new collection, you can get yourself 20% off a case! Simply download and sign up to the free Uberfone app- available on both Apple and Android and show this at the time of purchase! The app will also give you 10% off repairs too. Go on and treat you and a friend to a BEE TUFF today!
Available at your nearest Uberfone store and will be available to purchase online soon!
EXCITING NEWS ALERT! A few months back we received the best news we could have ever wanted! Our director sneakingly entered us into the Belfast Business Awards and after many interviews, investigations and secret shoppers we were narrowed down as FINALISTS in the ‘Best Family Business category’ at the Belfast Business Awards 2017!! To even be acknowledged one of the finalists is an amazing feeling but to WIN the title and take home the trophy made us so much prouder to be part of such a hardworking and rewarding company. The awards were held at the beautiful and iconic Titanic museum where every fine detail was covered. The Uberfone team had a ball, with wine flowing and adrenaline pumping, we could not hide our happiness when we were presented with the award. We met numerous other local businesses and it was nice to network and put names to faces. We are truly blessed to have the best team, credits go to everyone involved in the business from our Sales Gurus, to the TEK Team, Management team and especially we would be nowhere without the continued support from our wonderful, loyal customers. We hope to continue to deliver excellent customer service on a daily basis and provide you with the best products, knowledge and advice about your phone and tablet in Northern Ireland and beyond.

A split drink, a dive into a cup of tea, a splash from the kitchen tap, a dip into the bath tub or a clumsy drop down the loo- you can guarantee that we’ve heard it all! All we ask is that you openly admit that your phone has been dropped down the toilet, that detail will honestly not go a miss! And yes, it does happen to the best of us. Luckily for you, that’s were we come in handy. We have the perfect guide to help you in this crisis if your phone decides to have a rainy day.
First things first, you must turn off your phone immediately. Remove your sim card and memory card and dab off any excess water with a towel. Wrap the phone into a towel and leave until you can call into your nearest Uberfone store- sooner the better to avoid any potential corrosion inside. Our fabulous TEK Team can book your phone in for a specialist water damage treatment.
Secondly, all we can advise you to do is to not fall into these following myth methods. Do not think that HEAT will solve the situation. Setting your phone on a radiator or in the hot press will definitely increase the chance of further damage. The battery can overheat, melt and swell up- you really don’t want it to burst. Whether your phone is made of metal of plastic, the frame or phone itself can start to melt, this can be serious as most times it is difficult to regain the original shape of the frame. A combination of heat and moisture creates condensation which can cause screen damage- a costly mistake. These are nightmare situations when your phone is your right arm, but if you listen to us, your phone might just be saved in time.
Lastly, please save the rice for the dinner plate!! Do not fall into this trap of soaking your wet phone into a container of RICE. This is a pure myth and it causes more damage than what you think. Upon carrying out the water damage treatment, quite often our technicians will find random grains of rice clogging up the charging ports and headphone jacks which could add further costs on to the repair which you do not want. Mixed with moisture the grains can expand and be harder to remove. You need to seek the help of a professional phone technician as soon as possible who can give you more advice on what steps to take next.
It is simply a combination of being a lucky one, or listening to our advice that can potentially revive your phone to working order. Try to avoid storing your phone in your back pocket as 98% of the time it is the most common fault people make and can be a costly one at that! So think twice about the radiator or when you contemplate the rice method- these are not the solutions! ABORT MISSION!
If you know someone who needs a water damage treatment, call into your nearest Uberfone store as soon as you can! You can find us in: Abbeycentre (Newtownabbey), Bloomfield (Bangor), Buttercrane (Newry), CastleCourt (Belfast), Fairhill (Ballymena), Forestside (Belfast), Foyleside (Derry/Londonderry), Rushmere (Craigavon) and at Uberfone HQ (Dunmurry)
You can also book an appointment with our TEK Team via the free Uberfone app!

The Uberfone 2 in 1 wireless charger is an essential product if you need to charge your phone fast and on the go! With an amazing 8000mAh battery size it provides ample charging power for all phones. The average phone battery is just below 2000mAh in size, therefore this mean machine will give you 4 full charges! (WANT).

That’s where our fantastic wireless adapters come in handy priced at £2.99 it will allow an apple or android phone to become wireless charging. Alternatively, if wireless is not your cup of tea, you can still continue to charge via a lightning or usb cable. What if your friend also needs to charge their phone? Uberfone have got you covered as this power bank features 2 USB ports- sorted!! What if you’re in the dark and can’t see? Don’t panic as this also features a torch! With this, alongside the wireless functionality, you can charge three devices at once! An absolute steal for only £19.99!! Also comes in black or white.
The PowerJam 3 in 1 power bank is an excellent product for the music lovers out there looking for something a bit more fun. First and foremost it is a power bank with an 800mAh capacity which will allow for up to 50% charge of the average phones full battery with the use of your charging cable- perfect for when you need that little extra boost to revive your phone. Another cool feature of this product is that it is also a speaker for your phone to use via an AUX cable. Picture this, you are doing some work and you need some extra inspiration but your phone is low on battery. Grab your PowerJam, and charge your phone whilst playing your music with no decrease in the percentage! It is called a 3 in 1 Power bank as it is a charger and speaker including a handy little stand to prop your phone up and double up as the AUX connector. Not forgetting the vibrant, fun colours (Pink, blue, black and white) and bargain price of £12.99, the PowerJam speaker is a winner in our eyes!
The ultra thin standard Uberfone Power bank is our smallest and most basic one in the range. It features a 2400mAh capacity that will allow a full charge on the average phone battery with more to spare for several outings. This power bank comes with built in connectors for a micro USB and lightning ports so that you can charge on the move without the hassle of carrying around any extra cables!
