iphone 7 screen repairs

Hello,

Phone was dropped and screen is badly cracked. The phone still works OK, but obviously it needs to be fixed. Timpsons have quoted £189.00 which seems like a lot but they insist it is necessary due to it being complicated etc. A local phone store in South East London has quoted me £50.00 and said that it was easy.

What do you think? Any recommendations, please?

Thanks,

ASL

Personally with a high end phone like that I would send it straight to Apple....their repairs are guaranteed. Contact them for prices

Thanks for help - looks like Apple is a bit cheaper! Sounds sensible too...

Also I would never believe anyone who said repairing a screen was easy...How would they know, unless they had removed the screen and checked for sensor damage...etc... Apple is the way to go without doubt...Best of luck...

The problem is the home button / fingerprint sensor.
These often need changing and coding to the phone, which only Apple can do, so any third party repairers may leave you without a fully functioning button.

Hello @Anonymous,

Sorry to read about your screen disappointed relieved You should follow their advice and use Apple to avoid other problems. As they said, it is not easy to change them.

Personally, I invested in a Screen Protector because I am  ConfusedDestroy with my Iphone.

 

Thanks @Cleoriff and @MI5 for the help Heroheart

Re: iphone 7 screen repairs

the biggest issue you will have will be the proximity sensor, as that has a tendancy to go walkies when you have a screen repair done, its such a small thing, you know when you place your phone to your ear and your screen shuts down that the proximity sensor it disables your screen when yoyur ona call so if your phone is next to your cheek it dont start doing all sorts of gubbins like loud speaker and what ever else, thats the biggest thing so take it to apple as they will make sure your phone is tip top when its done with nothing missed, plus because its a 3d screen they will re callobrate it!

I used WeFix - https://wefix.co.uk

 

In my case it was an iPhone 6S but they fix iPhone 7 screens too.

 

The best thing was I booked it that morning, and they came to my office at 2pm to replace the screen. I was without my phone for about 30 mins, no more. Job done, no agro, highly recommended. Used another postal service once, it was terrible.
