Iphone repairs my opinion.

Postby markwilding » Sat Sep 21, 2019 11:27 am

To balance the opinion of the recently locked post, In my opinion should you require a repair to your iPhone, I would always go to an authorised dealer before thinking about other options.

In all cases I have been treated fairly by my local authorised shop (Not an Apple store). I started having problems with the phone, first with the screen and they replaced it for free, then the microphone and they gave me a new phone . A friend took his somewhere else to replace the screen and paid over 100 Euros.

I always use an authorised apple store for a repair. My son who has a 2 or 3 screens a year always uses a Chinese guy.

Why doesn’t he buy a really good case? The latest iPhones are incredibly expensive to repair especially if you smash front and back.

My iPad screen is well over €500.

I went to get my Samsung smartphone screen replaced to be told cost 110.
What surprised me is the repair guy said Samsung screen not good.
The two phones he suggested were Xiaomi and Huawei.

In what way did he mean "Samsung screen not good"?

He did not say not good, he said the ones I mentioned take knocks better. I bought Xiaomi on this basis, it was good of him to advise me as he likely know as he replaces same. He does not sell phones and I bought on other shop.

Off topic yes but I have to say the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 64GB is a spectacular phone for €160 I've had one for a while now. Superb.

Nothing to do with screen repairs, but, I treat my cell phones with respect and have never needed any repairs, I own an iphone se bought 3 years ago and still pristine which I use solely for business calls and an LG K5 for personal use.

The iphone cost me around €500 and the LG cost me €100, there is not much, from my perspective between them in fact if anything I would say that the LG is the better phone !

The SE is a good phone. I bought one a month ago for my wife. 2 years old, 32gb, in pristine condition for €85. It is now happily running iOS 13.

€85.00 was a steal, great bargain!
