What’s the Damage?

First things first, you need to check out what needs repairing. This is easy to find out if you can physically see the problem, but a little harder if you’re not quite sure what’s wrong. The most common accidents are a broken screen or cracked back plate, a broken charging point, speaker, microphone or home button. Often water damage or a dead battery can cause the phone to stop working altogether with no physical indication of which part needs replacing. If it’s water damage, take it to a reputable online company and it could be rescued. If you suspect it’s the battery, then changing it, or any other part, is easy once you know how.
