Here’s a first, we have actual colored glass, in hand here at iFixYouri. These aren’t just vector images, these are the real deal. They look super clean, and super sharp.
If you’re into customizing your phone, this is the latest. It’s kind of like those light up antennas from the late 90’s that everyone was putting on their nokias. Next, we’re expecting possibly some colored bezels maybe? We’re not quite sure. Maybe bezels w/ LED’s in them. That’d be kinda neat.
The baby blue is accented with white trim and a matching white home button. The red, it’s the same. It’s all coming together in the customization of your iPhone 4! The quality is good and everything functions fine. Here are a few snap shots of the glass installed.
Pretty cool stuff. Turn to iFixYouri for all your iPhone 4 Repair needs.
Did you drop your beautiful iPhone 4 and now have a cracked screen? iFixYouri offers industry leading repair services for any and all your problems. From cracked glass to water damage, we have you covered. Save money, repair wisely, and go with a name you can trust.
So you broke your new iPhone 4. Mad, upset, distraught.No matter what, it’s definitely frustrating. We have already see our fair share of broken iPhone 4’s, and they’re only about a month old.
Here’s a few things that we’ve picked up on so far with the recent release
- The glass still breaks
- The back glass is more fragile and prone to breaking than the previous plastic 3G/3Gs back housing.
- It has some issues with the antenna that are easily remedied by holding it the right way
- People are still dropping them in the water
- A water-proof iPhone seems far fetched
You have a couple options when it comes to getting the right iPhone 4 fix
Apple – Try to return in, pray that the geniuses will have mercy on your soul and grant you a new iPhone. In all honesty, this probably will happen 1 out of maybe 10 or 15 times, if you’re lucky. The cost of this, well free. If they shun you and ask you to pay for a new one, well now we’re talking somewhere in the $599+ range.
Third party repair – iFixYouri has many iPhone 4 repair options. All with a wide variety of pricing options. Repairs range from $69-$199. Regardless of the repair, you’re being frugal, and saving money. If you’re going the third party route, remember, best price does not always equal best service. Find it cheap? You’re pretty much looking at 100% cheap parts. You want to make sure that all parts are high quality, or else you will leave your $599 toy functioning worse than a $20 flip phone from the 90’s. You’ll lose that accurate touch, that smooth slide as you pan through the apps, and most importantly, you’ll increase the risk of part failure within a couple months. This can, and does happen, all too frequently.
Our suggestion - Well, before we give that to you, let’s do a slight comparison. Putting cheap glass on an iPhone 4 is like putting used near bald tires on a brand new BMW coupe. You know that in just a few month, you’ll need new tires again, just like the glass will eventually fail again. Go with the pro’s, save a few bucks and spare the hassel of going to the genius bar. Send it in to us, we’ll fix it, and send it back the same day we receive it in shop.
About a week ago a few of the techs and I decided to drop test an iPhone 4 to test screen damage resistance (we had a full iPhone, minus the motherboard). This test came under scrutiny since there was no ‘video’ proof and the iPhone parts used were questioned. We did not use any hammers, ice picks, or axes to break it. Just gravity. We did not throw it or spike it.
We told everyone that once we have a full iPhone, functioning, we’d be posting a video of us drop testing. The test was completed on a sunny afternoon in Florida, behind our repair facility. The area where it was dropped was free of pebbles and/or small rocks. It was a flat surface out in our parking lot. The height it was performed at, was about the level where you would be holding the phone out in front of you.
Well, the day has come, we have a complete working iPhone, straight from Apple, in our hands today. We disassembled it, took some pictures, reassembled it, showed that it works and that it is a functioning iPhone in the video. This video is completely unedited. What you are about to see is heart breaking. Our next step will be to perform and iPhone repair to show how we can clean up a broken iPhone 4 screen when suffering glass damage.
