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!

5 top tips on choosing the right kids GPS tracker

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 07.22.44For any parent or caregiver, your children’s safety is of paramount importance. Whilst it used to be impossible to keep an eye on your children’s every movement, the right children’s GPS tracker will enable you to do just that.

There are a number of factors which contribute to finding the perfect kids GPS tracker. These range from signal quality to the size and efficiency of the tracker itself. Below are five of the most important things to consider when purchasing a tracker for your children.

 

1)      It needs to track effectively from indoors and outdoors

A GPS tracker can have an array of handy features, but the most crucial thing is an ability to track consistently from any location. Some trackers have been criticised by customers for an inability to keep a consistent track unless held outside, and pointed skywards.

Whilst sometimes it’s convenient to use the tracker outside, at other times you’ll need to use it in the house, the office or travelling between places. This means that the tracker you purchase needs to be reliable and versatile enough to track from a variety of different locations.

 

2)      Live tracking is crucial

Live tracking enables you to monitor your child’s movements in real time, and retains a complete history of prior activity, on your personal mapping setup.

This means that you can go back through a history of previous movements, to see if you’re happy with the general pattern of where your child is spending their time, as well as to review their whereabouts during a period when you were unable to check the tracker.

It also means that if you suddenly notice your child somewhere that you don’t want them to be, you can react in an instant and make your way to them – knowing exactly where they are at every moment.

 

3)      Your tracker should have a customisable secure zone and boundary area

Many of the places your children will go – such as walking to a local shop, going to school or meeting up with other family members pose no real risk. This means that whilst your youngsters’ safety is always vitally important, there are times when you can relax. After all, there are enough stressful moments as a parent!

Thankfully, some GPS trackers have developed a perfect compromise. Their technology enables users to set a customised secure zone. If the child leaves that specific area, both you and other designated individuals can receive a text or email alert to inform you that they are outside of what you consider safe areas for them.

As the kids get older, this customisable format allows you to change the locations within this safe zone at any time.

 

4)      You want something small, portable and lightweight

Whilst innovative technology and reliability are the most crucial elements of a good kids GPS tracker, it’s also important to have a tracking device which is small and lightweight.

Considering that you – and your child – probably have the device on your person a good deal of the time, you don’t want something bulky or uncomfortable. With that in mind, it’s a big benefit to have a tracker which can just be slipped into a pocket, purse or for your little ones, a school lunch box or soft toy.

Trackershop offer some of the most effective, portable and lightweight personal GPS trackers available anywhere.

 

5)      Long battery life is important

This might seem obvious, but it’s important to find a tracker which has a long battery life (preferably one of several days), to facilitate constant tracking even when you’re in a situation where charging the device simply isn’t tenable – for example when you are in a remote location for any period of time.

The world’s first mind-controlled electric car created by MoneySuperMarket!

Carol Vorderman

MoneySuperMarket have debuted world’s first mind-controlled electric car this morning. Carol Vorderman was on hand to take the car for a spin using her big brain! Video footage has been made available for all to see of Carol working her way around the track.

On Thursday the track is empty and waiting for some lucky members of the public to be brain trained and drive the car themselves, in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. All they need to do is register before lunch time tomorrow at midday following this link: http://www.moneysupermarket.com/hubs/car-insurance/mind-drive/ .

 

Eighty years since the first driving test and with more distractions on our roads than ever before, MoneySuperMarket is reminding people to keep their brains in gear when behind the wheel with a truly epic motoring experience – the world’s first mind-controlled electric car.

The Car Insurance Epic Mind Drive gives drivers the opportunity to negotiate this ground-breaking vehicle around a futuristic track using brainwaves alone to turn left, right, move forward and stop.

The car is controlled with an electroencephalogram (EEG) neuro headset, using sophisticated software algorithms to translate raw EEG data into mental commands. Each user must train with the headset so it can decipher their thought patterns and learn their unique mental topography. The software is then able to recognise distinct thought patterns and using some complex electronics, wirelessly sends these commands to the car’s controls.

The Car Insurance Epic Mind Drive track

Those selected to take the driver’s seat will be judged on the track by a series of variables. This includes statistics fed back by a telematics box in the car reporting on how safely and accurately they drive, a technology system used to calculate fair premiums and save drivers money on car insurance policies. Accuracy, smoothness and lap time will all be fed into a bespoke formula to generate a score that they can take away with them, along with the pride of being one of the very first mind-control drivers.

The experience highlights that driving with your brain in gear not only keeps you safe but also saves money on your car insurance.

David Harling, Digital Marketing Director at MoneySuperMarket commented: “Driverless cars are currently being road tested but until they’re an everyday reality, we know it’s as important as ever for motorists to use their heads while driving. Our customers are great at using their heads to find the best car insurance quotes and have inspired us to launch the Car Insurance Epic Mind Drive, a once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic experience.”

Carol Vorderman

The Car Insurance Epic Mind Drive experience is live now. Drivers should go to http://www.moneysupermarket.com/hubs/car-insurance/mind-drive/ and register before 12 noon on Wednesday 15th July for the chance to drive the world’s first mind-controlled electric car on Thursday 16th July.

Visitors to the site will also be able to register for the chance to play the exclusive mobile driving game, using their heads in a live video call to drive by facial recognition and gesture alone.
