Although much stronger than it’s predecessors, there are still a high level of iPhone 5 screen repairs in Sydney on any given day. From the Monday post weekend accident repair needs, to the typical ‘dropped from the kitchen bench’ scenario, the iPhones still get a rough ride. Luckily there are many repair places in Sydney, and other Capital City and Regional Centres, that can offer services generally within an hour and same day, and get the phone back to it’s original state.
Generally the iPhone 5 needs to have the full front assembly replaced. The part includes the LCD behind the glass, the front glass itself, and the touch component which is embedded in the glass, also called the digitiser. We spoke to Fix My iPhone Sydney and they use the highest possible parts available which come complete with many small parts direct from the factory in one sealed component when providing their iPhone 5 screen repairs. This is the same quality as the original and is only not claimed Apple genuine as the parts cannot be bought direct from Apple however they are sourced from similar, and whenever possible the same, factories. You also have to be careful of places using what is called after market screens, these generally do not have the retina display, or they are repaired screens and are not the same quality as the parts mentioned earlier.
Lastly you also want to ensure you receive a warranty on the screen repair. This generally only covers the parts and labour provided, and not any additional damage to the iphone, but can at least cover you with post repair support. Fix My iPhone generally give a 6 month warranty on repairs, and have an extremely low failure rate seeing as the parts they use are the highest quality available, and are full factory tested before being shipped and fitted. They also provide a full online service history and client details so it’s easy to trace previous repairs, and warranty details if needed.
There are many iPhone repair centres in Sydney and surrounding areas. In summary always ensure you aim for;
- The parts used are new and not refurbished and of no discernible difference to original part
- There is backup warranty
- The service centre has been active for a while i.e. more than 2 years, and can be trusted
- Where possible, online service history is a big plus
- Avoid the cheapest places as they generally use the cheapest i.e. worst, parts available.
