iPhone 6. Will it bend?

Good morning iPhone fans!

It’s not unusual that I ask my technicians to take a few pictures of phones that are severely damaged…but it is unusual that an iPhone 6 would come into us in this bad of shape!  Check out the “before pictures” below:

Of course, this iPhone 6 needed a lot of TLC…but once we replaced the back case and the glass, the rest of the phone was still working.  This is a testament to the “ruggedness” of the rest of the phone even though we all know that the glass can break very easily.  Obviously this phone was run over or caught in a car door or something.  Normally they don’t look this bad.  Once repaired, they typically tend to look this good!

So when people ask “can you fix my iPhone?!?”, just take a look at the pictures above and judge for yourself…if it’s not as bad of the first two pictures, there’s a good chance that Mission Repair will be able to help you out.  I mean, there’s not much more someone can do to try to test our skills, right?  Thanks to my technician Casey for handling this one.

Thanks for reading, I’ll be back soon!  Ryan

 

 

 

iPhone 6 repairs – price going up?

Hello there technology fans;

We’ve received some interesting news that the price of iPhone 6 screens will be on the rise soon. These parts rise and fall per International demand, supply and availability of the small parts required to assemble the screens as we purchase them.

This news comes to us from time to time via our vendors, but at the moment the iPhone 6 screen repairs will remain the same price for our customers at Mission Repair. I will keep you updated on this as information develops, however if you’re in the market it might be best to have your iPhone 6 screen repaired sooner rather than later.

This will be industry-wide, and we at Mission Repair will hold our price constant as long as possible…but as usual prices are subject to fluctuate so keep an eye on our page if you’re in need of a screen repair!

Take care, Ryan

Casey can tell you the differences…

My son Casey is in the market for a new phone. I can feel the push coming from him, and his iPhone 5 just doesn’t seem to be cutting it any more.

So last night I heard him talking to Dandra and making the “sales pitch” to her and trying to talk her into getting a new phone as well. She asked “what’s the difference between the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus?”

It’s mainly about screen size. At Mission Repair we have found that both size screens are just are easily “crackable” as another; and both are equally difficult to repair.

The world’s iPhones have got thinner and lighter since 2007 but in late 2014 Apple really worked some iPad Air-style magic on the dimensions of its latest handsets. The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is just 6.9mm thick (shaving another 10% off the already slim 7.6mm iPhone 5S) while the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus has a thickness of just 7.1mm.

Again, the screen is where we find the biggest gap between the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus – it’s the main distinction between the models. The iPhone 6’s display measures 4.7 inches corner-to-corner at a resolution of 1334 x 750 pixels (or 326 pixels-per-inch).

The 6 Plus ups this to 5.5 inches and a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (401ppi). These figures put the iPhone 5S firmly in the shade, with its 1136 x 640 pixel, 326ppi display.

All that means you get more pixels on the 6 Plus spread across a larger area. Website text will be bigger, movies can be viewed from further away, text will be sharper, and so on. It also makes the device harder to hold in just one hand, but the one-handed mode built into iOS 8 (the operating system that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus ship with) should be able to alleviate some of those problems.

Both of iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus feature the same camera lens technology. That means an 8-megapixel shooter (as with the iPhone 5S) but an improved f/2.2 aperture and processing algorithms, so your pictures are going to look better than ever in all conditions.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus unsurprisingly make the jump to Apple’s A8 64-bit dual-core processor, giving it more oomph for your games and video editing. On-board RAM remains constant at 1GB, however, so for most day-to-day tasks you’re not going to notice a huge difference in the capabilities of these two phones.

The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus match in terms of storage capacities too: for the first time there’s a 128GB level to join the 64GB and 16GB options. You can pick any of these three with any handset, though the iPhone 6 Plus is more expensive across the board, so you’ll be paying more for the same amount of space in return for a larger device and clearer display.

I’ve used both phones and happiest with the smaller iPhone 6. I personally think that the 6 Plus is a bit overbearing…plus it doesn’t fit into the cup holder in my Toyota as nicely as the smaller version.

Just in case you were wondering…Ryan

KCTV5 at Mission Repair Express Today!

Hello friends,

I just got finished with an interview with our local news crew about the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. The crew just left the building:

IMG_1093

They were very concerned about the reports of the iPhone 6 Plus “bending” when you insert it into your pocket; which I guess to me sounds a little bit like a feasible situation. Put your phone into your pocket, sit on it, and it bends.

Apparently the issue may be more than that…and since we’ve seen the inside of the iPhone 6 (which doesn’t have much “structural” support like the iPhone 5S does) the plausibility of “bending” is there. We haven’t seen a bent iPhone 6 in our lab yet. Cracked screens, yes…bent phones, no.

Check us on on KCTV 5 today at 6:15, and you’ll see me trying to talk my way out of the iPhone 6 Plus bending issue 😉 Let’s see how they put this one together!

I’ll be back shortly with more info on the iPhone 6 Plus bending problem in a blog later today.

Take care, Ryan
