Top 4 Questions To Ask Your Screen Repair Centre

Iphone-Ipad-posterCracked screens are one of the main reasons for getting your iPhone, iPad or iPod repaired. Due to their size and portable nature, it is only a matter of time before the inevitable happens. As the screen is made of glass, any cracks can leave dangerous sharp edges that can cause injury. Over time the cracks will get worse, so it’s a good idea to cover the affected area with sellotape to protect your fingers and to stop loose glass falling out.

If your device has been dropped onto a hard surface then, it is quite common for the metal edges of the rear cover to be dented, particularly on the corners. As the metal is aluminium this can dent very easily. The good news is that in most cases, the rear metal cover does not need to be replaced in order to fit replacement glass. As the metal is fairly soft, it is relatively easy to straighten out any dents to ensure the new glass fits properly.

iPhone Cracked Screen

 

The first thing to check is whether you can still see images on the iPad. If there is no distortion and the colours appear normal then the underlying LCD is unlikely to have been affected. For the vast majority of screen repairs, there is no need to replace the underlying LCD.

Many iPhone and iPad users are unaware of what is involved with a screen repair which is why we’ve listed the following questions that may help you make a more informed decision.

tips

Ask About…The Quality Of The Glass

There are lots of thin imitation screens available on the market and whilst these may work initially they are far less durable and more susceptible to crack even during normal handling. The thicker the glass the more durable it is which is why it is important to ask the repair centre what they use.

Ask About…The Adhesive Used

We have seen countless examples of screens coming away (delaminating) from repair centres that haven’t used the correct adhesive. At Fone Angels we make sure to sure the same high strength adhesive that was used in the original iPad or iPhone.

Ask About…The Testing

Due to the complexity of modern smartphones, a screen replacement involves opening up your device and the careful re-fitting of components. This is particularly important if the device is being posted back to the customer as it is not easy to ‘pop in’ to rectify any problem.

Ask About…The Warranty

To give reassurance, repair centres offer warranty for any repairs – some provide 90 days, others don’t offer anything,  Fone Angels provide a 12 month warranty on all our repairs as standard!
