iPhone 4 screen repairs

By | August 4, 2010

It is a well known fact that the Apple iPhone does not bounce well. I personally have dropped my iPhone 3GS countless times on to concrete floors and car park tarmac. Luckily on each occasion I have managed to escape from the dreaded iPhone broken screen only to receive cracks and chips on my iPhone back case. I can live with a battered back case.

Now imagine you have an iPhone 4. You take out your pristine condition iPhone 4 from your pocket only to accidently drop it on to the street floor, screen first. You’re mortified. The iPhone still seems to function OK but the front glass is shattered. What do you do? You continue to use your iPhone and risk cutting your fingers on the shattered front glass or you get it repaired as soon as possible.

iPhone 4 does not bounce well

The iPhone 4 touch screen is made from aluminosilicate glass, which is supposed to be 20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic. The back cover of the iPhone is also made from the same glass which means accidently dropping your iPhone 4 now could result in both the front and back glass panels cracking!

If the unfortunate should happen to you and your iPhone 4 a repair will be needed. This is where we come in. We have replaced a few iPhone 4 broken screens now and are quite familiar with the job in hand. To take apart the iPhone 4 can be a daunting task to the novice as Apple have managed to up the number of screws inside the new iPhone 4. Not only that but most screws are of different size and length, meaning they will need to go back in their exact place. You could perform an iPhone 4 screen repair yourself using a repair guide or you could use us, iPhone Repairs & Spares LTD.

Let us take the stress away from you by replacing your broken iPhone 4 screen. We can perform this repair at our offices within 30 minutes while you grab a coffee at a nearby cafe. If you have dropped your iPhone 4 and have just smashed the back case of the iPhone 4, we can replace this part in a matter of seconds!

As with the original iPhone 2G, the iPhone 4 screen assembly is one sealed unit. This means that if you have dropped your iPhone 4, yet the LCD is working fine and only the front glass is broken, the whole screen assembly will need to be replaced. Apple have designed the iPhone 4 display in such a way that the LCD screen is tightly bonded to the touch screen making the removal of each screen component difficult if indeed impossible. This design of the new iPhone 4 screen ensures a tight seal at all times to stop dust from entering the layers of the screen. A common problem of the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS was dust somehow getting in between the LCD and touch screen, even if the rubber seal had not been broken.

So, you’re the unfortunate owner of an iPhone 4 that has bounced on a hard floor which has resulted in the LCD “leaking ink”, the front glass screen shattering and the back case smashed and splintering glass. You’re once shiny and new iPhone 4 now looks a mess. Worry no more! We, iPhone Repairs & Spares LTD are here to help you. Let us repair your iPhone 4 and get it back to its former glorious sleek self. You won’t be disappointed with the results!
