Samsung Galaxy S5 Screen Replacement

This S5 was Kaput!

Look at it now. Gleaming and shiny, and ready to be smudged up and tapped on to your heart's content. This is one of the most deceiving mobile phone repairs around. It canΒ appear very simple, but if you don't clean the frame out properly, and use some incredible hulk-type adhesive, the screen will not stay down! You'll get lift around the edges, maybe not straight away, but eventually.

Fortunately Inspect Your Gadget uses only the most hardcore adhesive especially designed for the Samsung Galaxy S5 and its demanding screen. We have done dozens of these now, so rest assured if you bring your Galaxy S5 to us for repair work, you will not only get the cheapest screen replacement price around. You will also get a master quality repair job. Our workmanship comes with a 3-month warranty. Translation...if it's still good after 3 months...it's gonna be good forever. Or at least until you break it again and find yourself calling us!

iPhone 5 Resurrection!

Check out one of our latest jobs. This iPhone 5 appeared to have been put under an actual STEAMROLLER. The front was totally smashed, the back was damaged and bits missing. Even the front camera was destroyed.

With a little handy work from us, we replaced the entire body, the front camera, and the LCD / glass. The phone is literally good as new now, and could sell for $300-$450. Total cost to our customer $175.

Help Us Help John

You all might have heard of John Connolly. He's a Police Officer in Papakura, Auckland. He is also a very close personal friend of my cousin. He featured in National News awhile back after being brutally beaten by a gang of 30 callous thugs for trying to stop a young woman being beaten up. This year John had some terrible news: a type of Cancer than cannot be operated on here in New Zealand. Please at least take a minute to read about John's story, and see if you can join us on the crusade to get him to the UK to receive this life-saving operation.
