  • Unfortunately 5s are worth next to nothing in the uk now, around £30. I’ve stopped repairing the 5 series and SE, and 6.

  • I remembered dropping my iPhone 5s twice and when ever I dropped it, I was pretty upset & I had to wait at least a month for my phone to get replaced since the guy that I took it to didn’t ask for 2 day shipping and I don’t really trust people to repair my phone if they are NOT asking for a faster shipping and that was the first time my phone broke but the second time, he refused to fix my phone and even if this guy fixes my stuff for a good deal, I can’t really trust him that much because he is so unskilled

  • I'm surprised people are still paying this much for a iphone 5s. Only benefit is the size, and you can get the first gen iphone se really cheaply nowadays.

  • Hey Hugh, are you able to get back to me please. I’m trying to fix an iPhone on a budget I would really appreciate the help looking for good parts. This phone is for my little brother as he messages us instead of talking to us because of his hearing. He can hear us and talk to us but I think he’s in pain when he tries. Thank you

  • Hi Hugh I attempted a screen replacement on a iPhone 6s and it all went well thanks to your video . Well until I went to plug the screen in. The connector connecting the home button fell off the ribbon cable and now I have no home button THIS HAS HAPPENED TWICE. So I’ve spent more on screens than I have on the phone. Is there a way I can fix it or do I have to spend yet another £20 on a new display?

  • Nice video Hugh, used it as a guideline to open up my 5S and check the internals after a battery replacement done by a local shop. However, in this specific video, you have missed a very important detail. The infamous screw size difference of the lcd plate... Ended up with a permament 'error 9' situation :( I dont blame u at all, the decision was mine alone but if I were u, I would add a text in the video to highlight the issue and help other people avoid similar problems in the future. Big fan of your other videos as well, keep up the good work.
