About My iPhone 5s and my DIY story.
First of all,I never thought that I could replace my iPhone 5s screen LCD by myself. Before I replaced my iPhone’s screen,I was using it while the screen was broken for 3 month. I know a lot of people have the same experience. It hurts our eyes when staring at the broken screen iPhone for long time.
My friend replaced his own iPhone 6 plus screen by himself. So I ask him for help, his answer made me feel sad. Go to YouTube find a tutorial about it and do it yourself. This answer was not what i expected so i didn’t even try to replace the screen by myself. The main point of the story is I got a job at my current company I am working at right now which is wholesaling smartphone screen. My boss give me a brand new iPhone 5 LCD after he find out my iPhone 5s. So I went on YouTube.
Yes, the thing we have to realize is that we can do it ourselves, DIY has substantial risk if you can’t follow the video step by step. Spending $110 to find a iPhone repair store is also a good choice. I was ready to do this way,but I have the screen from my boss.
I decide to DIY, it’s not easy. the tutorial is only 11 minutes, but i almost spend two hours to fix it. the lucky thing is i made it.
