When repairing phones, apple or android, most people are faced with wanting to do the repair themselves. There are several things to consider before choosing this route.
You can find LCD screen replacement kits online that come with all the tools and instructions you need to replace the screen yourself. This is the most affordable option, but it also carries the most risk as you could damage your phone if you're not experienced with repairs. These repairs require delicate precision and advanced knowledge since each phone is a little different.
Purchasing the correct, authentic parts, may be tricky. Some places don't offer returns, so it is vital to make sure you buy from a reliable resource with accurate information.
Safety is also a big concern. You must be mindful of safety precautions when handling electronic components and tools. Make sure to wear safety glasses and gloves if necessary. For instance, removing a phone battery with a metal tool can cause a fire. You have to be in a safe environment as well as have a fire extinguisher handy.
While you may be saving a little bit of money, the cost of taking it to a professional is always a better option. The risk of further damage, or harming yourself is much lower when taking it to a repair shop.
