Cracked Iphone screen

I have just cracked my Iphone screen, and will be in Shenzhen/HK next week.

Any recommendations on where to get phone fixed whilst in Shenzhen or HK?

Thanks

1. Re: Cracked Iphone screen

I had my iPhone 6+ screen replaced in Guangzhou couple weeks ago for 250 yuan, which included an useless "protection sheet" I later threw away, so the screen itself was about 230 yuan(US$35). It's working just fine. 2nd replacement, last one in US for US$150, in Apple Store is 1000 yuan, same in US.

A supplier paid 200 yuan for 6+ screen replacement, I wasn't in the mood to bargain for 30 yuan.

There are many small phone repair shops here and there, I just walked into the first one I saw. No time to go to at specific shop.

Later I found out it is even cheaper in Taiwan.

Hi, Not quite Iphone screen but I had a macbook screen replaced by Macwin in Hong Kong.

Before doing so I read reviews on google and went with him... he does ipads and phones too and is very professional and very good!

Not sure how much he would charge but I spoke to him on email before I went so I knew what the price was and how long it would take... if your not going for a while, might pay to drop him an email... let me know if you want his details.

All the best.

There are 1000 places in SZ to replace iPhone screen (or whatever part for whatever phone).

Go to Futian, Shennan Zhong Lu, corner Huaqiang Lu (there is S and N). When you walk up Huaqiang N Lu on the right there is SEG Communication Market. The buildings nearby might have repair places too.

Or from the same street crossing you walk 200m east on Shennan Zhong, on the right hand side is another place with plenty of repair shops. It's the building with a McDonalds at the corner.

Clear scotch tape is good. Fix at home

A bit late, but one more advise to other readers:

When they fix the phone - stay there and watch them!

I heard stories were they chaged parts (mainly the batterie) to a poor quality one.
