pay apple, sell phone for more than you paid for the repair as "new".
Yup, I tried the DIY repair route once and tore the TouchID cable, plus the LCD was garbage quality which is very common as sellers sell reject screens stolen from factories.
After closer checking I could have paid Apple to do it for $50 more on the iPhone 7.
Why do some work for some people? Over a good period of time.
Furthermore under Australian consumer law you should expect a reason length of time for these to work.
Yeah good luck getting some shady repair kiosk in a shopping centre to honour a warranty... that is like CPL x 100
They work for some people depending on how hard the ribbon cable is bent, how bright the screen is run, how its on long for, how hot it is etc. The traces were never meant to carry that much current and if it blows you can kiss the device goodbye and the data without advanced recovery.
It is one of the reason's I side with Apple, all this cheap shit out in the market trying to undercut Apple and putting inferior phones out in the wild that may be sold to other buyers etc.
Or sell it broken, people will buy anything Apple even if not working.
Well yes of course you may need to go through official channels to get them to warranty it.
Doesn't make any difference if the device is destroyed beyond recovery. When you take the cheap option, expect there to be a catch.
Then they will need to replace it. Where are we going with this?
