Just got a iPhone 6S 64GB with a cracked screen

Recommended Posts

I noticed my friend recently upgraded to an iPhone 7 Plus. Knowing she had an iPhone 6S with a cracked screen, I decided to give it a shot and asked her to sell it to me. I offered her $100. Initially she declined, but a few days later she said she would sell it to me for my offer price :lol:

I paid her today and I got the phone. The front was pretty destroyed, but the rest of the phone was not in bad shape. I also found out this was a factory unlocked handset with 64GB of storage :o

I wanted to take it apart to see what's inside. Later on, I went on Amazon and found out you can buy entire replacement screens. So I ordered the following: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B0757LMW85/ref=pe_3034960_233709270_TE_item

For $53, I'm interested to see how this works out. If I can get this fixed, I pretty much just got a used iPhone 6S 64GB for $153 :lol:

The package includes pretty much everything you need.

Time to take it out and transfer the components over.

Project is done. Didn't take too long -- maybe around half an hour. Didn't fry anything :D

Nice chc! Looks like you scored a big one for a cheap iPhone 6S - how is the screen quality?

Sure did! The Corepair screen is pretty good. The metal block inside that the earpiece wraps around is not the same size as OEM, so I had to cut the strip. The bottom also has a slight gap, so it doesn't sit completely flush with the metal shell. As far as screen quality, I placed it beside a real iPhone 6S screen, and the OEM screen has slightly better contrast and colors. I doubt you can tell the difference if you don't place it side by side though.

That contrast between the new glass and the old one though... 

Just some cracks and a hole :lol:

Very nice Repair! Looks just like OEM from the Photos.

Thanks!
