  • The phone turned out very good, except for the double sided tape and the wireless coil that is a little damaged from when he tried to move... Just a little of ocd, the rest seems fine altough I did not looked close enough to see the tiny defects that no one will care...

  • iphone, An expensive Proprietary piece of technology. Not for everyone, especially for money smart folks on budgets. Not only is the phone device itself very expensive but so are repairs & accessories to fit this technology. Glad I never got one.

  • DIY and save $50* It’s just as easy as that!** * You’ll snap, break, lose, be unable to transfer, lose patience with throw it across the room, curse the day the iPhone was created, curse the day Apple was created, and finally curse the day you were created. If you need more parts because you broke them, then you will curse you grandparents for creating your parents, and so on. All of this after buying a broken phone for a crazy amount of money, then not be able to have the waterproofing that, let’s face it, you probably need if you’re replacing the housing, screen, or glass. ** Only applies to this gentleman and Chinese sweatshop laborers who have the tools, know how, and ability to perform this action. WARNING this is such mental torture that the iPhone factory had to install anti suicide nets around the FoxConn sweatshop roof, partly because of the work conditions, and others decided to jump if they were to do this day in, day out to earn enough money to keep you alive at a level just above starved for a couple years of labor. ...but you’ll do fine! Picture how smart and enviable you’ll be with your $50! (You’ll then have to order more parts when you snap something or lose screws to close it up...again for anyone else but this gentleman, with the patience of a Saint)

  • Hi hope you're all doing well? Could you do me a favour please and help share my fundraiser? - Selling goods that can be found on to fund a case against o2. I've been accused of identity theft against myself. Can you follow and share please. Perhaps I can find a no win no fee lawyer instead. There's people on my LinkedIn that I may get to assist if I can get assistance like this - eBay budgets will go into my Negative.X project [which focusses on tackling Human Rights Abuse] apart from the Singer which will be invested in what I'm doing to live and feed Negative.X. [If it isn't me selling it - it's piracy] @negxapparel on facebook, twitter and Instagram. Kindest Regards, Afaan

  • Hugh is often complaining about how protective Apple is about it’s phones, but here he is running into many of the problems Apple would point to with low quality counterfeit parts.

    Mr LT1Mr LT13 månader sedan
    • Very true, but in the “Apple” scale of business, how much money could they actually make selling parts? What would effect would that have on their supply chain? I doubt would be worth it for them as they aren’t in that business. And that’s before the Apple is a villain and wants you to throw away your phone theory. I’d prefer they did sell parts, and wouldn’t be against laws that require OEM manufactures to supply some percentage of replacement parts. I think the message you get when someone uses a non factory part is to inform a customer that a repair shop isn’t using official parts. It’s something that I think they should know.

Bomb testing?!! 🤦🏻‍♂️ the battery is fine. And whoever buys the phone will thank you next time it’s replaced. As iPhone are terrible on battery life 🤨
