whoever can fix it generally will supply the screen.
IF DIY probably Ebay

i just got my work phone fixed. new screen for $80 installed.

they quoted $90 to fix my 6S plus screen. that’s a copy screen, so quality isn’t the same as an original, but i’m sure most people wouldn’t notice.


#2303

where did you get that done? or what sort of place should my colleague be looking for that might offer the service?


#2304

sorry, i left off the most important bit!

it’s in moorabbin.

imobilestore, shop 12/105 Cochranes Rd, Moorabbin

#2306

Most shopping centres have someone who’ll do it.

I had a 3GS where the screen stopped working. I took it to Apple, who said $350 to fix, so I said no, thanks.

I then took it to one of those while-you-wait screen repair places and not much later had a new screen for $84. Not an Apple screen and not as good, but perfectly adequate for a phone that was then about 4 years old.


#2308

I got mine fixed in Hoi An for $10. Genuine Apple bits and an Apple Dealer. costs $100 at our Local Shopping Centre. So tell your colleague to go on a holiday.


#2309

Doesn’t a non apple screen affect certain sensors in the phone?


#2310

No.
And I’ve never even noticed a drop in image quality. One of the three I’ve done required an adjustment to the image colour temp, which is done through SW settings, took 3 seconds. (It resolved itself anyway after about a week, was just the screen “burning in”)

But you can’t replace the home button yourself. That’s where the black magic lives.


#2311

Nah, it wasn’t.
Apple are very big on having standardised pricing worldwide.


#2312

I saw it HAP.

This was an accredited Apple Dealer, and they had all original packing. Otherwise best fake I have ever seen.


#2313

I won’t break the news about your Ray-Bans yet.


#2314

As to whether fake or not.
Apple get all their parts off essentially generic H/W suppliers. Samsung/foxconn/pegtron/sharp etc.
Might not be any different, but would’ve come through a different supply chain. And Apple would gladly void warranty over that…


#2315

Roy Bons i think you mean.


#2316

What about his genuine solid gold Rolox watch?


#2317

I went the $80 Patek Philippe myself.
