The following are the enumeration identified by this study. There are six priority improvements for enterprises: (1) transparent price for accessories and repair, (2) high zeal for solving the recycle of accessories, (3) free charge for product upgrade and service within the warranty period, (4) convenient product return and exchange service, (5) free checking of the function and (6) active notice after repair.
