Chosing a repairer

iPad-iPhone-Screen-Repairs-Gold-Coast-Lismore

Getting your iPad, iPad mini or iPhone repaired on the Gold Coast, Lismore, Northern Rivers or surrounding areas?

Here is a couple things to take note of.

Screen replacements can be a tricky job, Over the years we have seen many poor repairs and 2nd rate parts used. Why is this happening? because some repairers are taking shortcuts. When a repairer gets your screen there many different quality’s they can get. Sometimes a cheaper quality is not too bad but can have many issues, some listyed below:

iPhone 6

  • Screens come from about 4 or 5 different factories Longten, JDF, Shenchao and original – refurbished screens. The main concern with using a lower grade screen in an iPhone 6 is that the iPhone 6 can be prone to blowing a backlight fuse should the screen have a faulty IC (the part that controls the screen) Should this happen, your repairer may not be able to fix your phone, we at Mobile Coverz can fix this for you.
  • The price difference between the screens is quite substantial so your cheaper repair probably is a cheaper screen – have it done at your own risk
  • there is a rumor that the next IOS update will cause the lower grade screens to fail, We at Mobile Coverz are not taking that risk, we only use original – refurbished screens
  • Cheaper Screens can have touch and sensitivity issues, not to mention the frame might come away easily especially when the phone gets hot

iPad Mini 1 and 2
Poor replacement glass (high copy) generally cracks a lot easier, when it cracks shards fall out as the laminate on the screen is inferior. The Screen may also jump about by itself causing frustration to you when it types and opens apps by itself. This issue can happen with original replacement glass but is a lot less common
Also be careful with repairers “Gluing” your digitizer down, this is not how it is meant to be done and generally they use superglue which can damage sensitive electrical components

iPad 2 3 and 4
Poor replacement glass generally cracks a lot easier, when it cracks shards fall out as the laminate on the screen is inferior. Also be careful with repairers “Gluing” your digitizer down, this is not how it is meant to be done and generally they use superglue which can damage sensitive electrical components
