5 - 20 minuten
My son recently went to the local state fair, and thought it would be a good idea to keep his phone in the pockets of his basketball-style shorts when he climbed onto one of the rides. Needless to say, the phone flew more than he did, and so did a big chunk of his pocket money because from that point on he was totally unable to communicate with his friends anymore (its not like they talk or anything)
This is the second time that I have repaired an iPhone 5c. Previously I purchased the cheaper replacement screen, where one needs to transplant the home button and front camera. I had one of those 'what is your time worth' moments, because that is a fiddly job, and for an extra $10, it is TOTALLY worth it to get the display with included button and camera - this makes the job MUCH simpler and faster.
A couple of thoughts:
- The display comes either standalone or in a kit (with the tools needed to do the job).
- Of those tools, most of them are great to get the job done, but the 000 screwdriver is rubbish - mostly because it is not magnetic (fortunately I have the fabulous iFixit toolkit, and that comes with a magnetic and far higher quality screwdriver to get the job done easily).
- I assume as demand decreases, the price has massively increased for iPhone 5c displays - this is alarming.
