Save money by using this kit to repair your cracked iPhone screen

Save money by using this kit to repair your cracked iPhone screen
It is one of the worst feelings in the world. Your Apple iPhone, the tool you count on to do, well, just about everything, has hit the concrete screen-side down. With trembling hands you reach for the fallen handset, turn it over and gasp. The screen on your iPhone has cracked. Assuming that you didn't bother to insure the device, your next step is to find someone to fix the glass at a reasonable price. But that is not as easy as you might think.

You can save a lot of money if you repair the screen yourself, and with the iCracked iPhone Screen Replacement Kit this is quite possible. Available from Amazon for the Apple iPhone 5, Apple iPhone 5c and Apple iPhone 5s, the cost of the kit is less than what you would pay for a new screen from Apple or from third-party repair shops. The kit is $59.99 for the iPhone 5 and $69.99 for the other two models. And kits are available for both black and white variants of each phone.

According to the manufacturer, the whole process should take just one to two hours to complete. And all of the tools and material you need come right in the box. If you need assistance, the kit will show you how to access the company's on-line videos that give you step-by-step details on how to fix your screen. A lifetime warranty is offered for as long as you own the phone.

No need for repair. If my iPhone 5s screen cracks, I will just upgrade to a Galaxy S7, or buy a mid-range phone and wait for the Surface Phone to arrive ;)

You....kinda have to wonder just how badly iphone users treat their phones, for there to be a market for such kits...

I know people who've broken the same iPhone screen 3 times and I've also seen people break the screen, get it fixed and break it again all in the same week.

Yeah, kinda makes you wonder how much some people take smart phones for granted and threats them carelessly, it isn't like taking the half second to make sure it is, held right, went into the right pocket and whatnot, is..that much.

The reason there are so many people and places that repair iPhones (myself included) are 2 reasons: they're fragile, and many people have them. As for this article, there are actually few people who will successfully replace their own screen with a kit such as this (screen assembly) without causing some sort of damage to the device. I have to fix so many rookie mistakes on a weekly basis, some of which have seriously damaged the device. Getting the sensors in the wrong place, speaker incorrectly placed, the wrong length screws in the wrong location, ribbon cables torn, home button cables torn (especially on the 5S), and so on. In the end, just about all of these mistakes end up costing customers much more in repair cost beyond just a simple screen assembly replacement. Just one little oopsie and a device can be a brick.

yeah, but even so with iphones popularity, it doesn't have a 10 to 1 lead over other types of phones not even, yet according to those I know that repair that is around the ratio of iphones to non iphones that come in for repair.

Most popular flagship. Obviously. Learn statistics

statistically amongst flagships, maybe, and because of their limited variety, you are of course correct, it is easier to make a kit for something that is limited in how many models you need to make. But even so there are a lot of people that treat them carelessly, but knowing people that work in the repair business, it is overwhelmingly iphones that come in for repair almost ten times as much as others, and they do not have a ten to one lead...so yeah.

That is an outrageous price when they're $40-$50 on eBay.

All of these "kits" are junk. It's so hard to find a good, quality screen replacement for Apple products. I repair devices sometimes and it's very frustrating.

We are always for saving devices vs just upgrading. This is especially important when it comes to iPhone repair since it is available everywhere whether you chose to go the DIY route or a local iPhone repair shop.
