Pre-shipment mobile phone inspection is a vital step to check for product defects, safety issues and other nonconformances in your product before they reach customers. Your mobile phone inspection should always include checks of both the hardware and software.

  • Visual inspection for structural and aesthetic defects through comparison with approved samples and CAD sketches, checking dimensions, color, weight, cable length, logos and labeling
  • Verify correct assembly against any available component data form (CDF), including LCD display, speaker, microphone, printed circuit board (PCB), main integrated circuit (IC) and buttons
  • Check internal construction, including proper clearance between live parts and conductors and secondary parts, as well as the condition of solder joints, PCB, copper foil and screws

Pricing for Mobile Phone Inspection

AQF bills inspections in man-days, starting at US$298 per man-day all-inclusive. The number of man-days you pay for depends on the following factors:

  • Inspection scope – more on-site tests and check take longer to perform
  • Sample size – larger sample sizes take more time to inspect
  • Factory location – factories located in remote areas take more time to travel to

Our all-inclusive rates include costs of the inspector traveling to the facility and other expenses associated with the service.
