Over the last few years I have sent in a number of phones in for family and friends to have cracked screens replaced and new batteries installed. This often leaves them without their phone for at least a week, if not two.
Yesterday a family member showed me their cracked screen on a Samsung Galaxy S5.
My wife mentions how the IT guy at her work started replacing cracked screens for people.
I did a google search and after reading this guide... I thought to myself maybe I should get into repairing them myself too.https://www.ifixit.com/Device/Samsung_Galaxy_S5
I am seriously thinking about trying to replace the Galaxy S5 screen for this family member myself.
If that goes well then I may and try to pick up some used phones with cracked screens to get some experiance with.
After all I love to take things apart and tinker with them.
I see local people trying to sell their cracked screen phone on local facebook garage sales sites all the time.
As I buy used phones from local people through facebook word would get around as to what I'm up to.
I think many families may have just as many smart phones and tablets in their household as they do appliances, maybe even more...
Anyone else out there happen to be repairing phones and tablets too?
