    iPhone 3GS Repairs

    Cracked iPhone 3GS Display Repairs

    The iPhone 3GS has has two separate screens. The top screen is called a Digitiser and is basically the Touch Screen. The screen underneath is the display screen or LCD. Usually the customer only manages to break the iPhone touch screen and this is replaced independently of the LCD. Occasionally the iPhone LCD gets broken and still can be replaced independently.

    We can replace an iPhone 3GS Touch Screen or LCD in about 25minutes

    iPhone 3GS Not Charging

    The iPhone 3GS can sometimes stop charging due to damage to the Charging Connector, or the charging block becomes detached from the Main-Board. If this is the case then it is a simple job to open up the iPhone 3GS and reattach the Dock Connector Cable. If the cable has come adrift then the Home Button, Microphone and Loudspeaker will also not function.

    If the iPhone 3GS Dock Connector is faulty, damages or corroded then we change the component .

    iPhone 3GS Power Button Repairs

    This problem is caused by either a cracked iPhone 3GS Case around the lock Button area of the iPhone. A faulty iPhone 3GS Power Button may also be caused by wear and tear and the button has lost its shape and therefore does not click to create a conductive circuit. The power button is on a ribbon cable that is embedded under the main-board of the iPhone 3GS. We have changed many of these cables and the work takes over an hour as it is a very fiddly job. It may work out more economical to change the complete housing that includes a new Battery, On / Off ribbon cable, volume controls, headphone jack and dock connector

    iPhone 3GS Home Button Repairs

    The iPhone 3GS Home Button is a small ribbon cable that sits under the touch screen of the iPhone 3GS. To replace a faulty iPhone 3GS Home Button we have to remove the touch screen. We replace the Home button and finish off the iPhone 3GS Home Button Repair procedure by fitting a new Digitiser.

    iPhone 3GS Not Holding Charge

    As this model is now getting older we are seeing quite a few iPhone 3GS battery problems coming into the shop. We change the iPhone Batteries for a matched new original iphone 3GS Battery

    4.5/5

    For

    • Great touchscreen
    • Faster processor
    • iPhone 3.0 software
    • Camera with auto-focus

    Against

    • Poor coverage at times
    • Expensive to upgrade to
    • Internet tethering costs extra
    • Battery life doesn't seem to have been improved
  • We liked

    Well, there's just so much to like about this all rounder, isn't there? We could choose the excellent Internet, the new camera that's almost is good enough to make us stop moaning about the iPhone always having a rubbish snapper (but not quite, though we do love the auto-focus).

    We could talk about the increase in speed or the great graphical processing power of the iPhone 3GS. We could even chat about the fact voice control is good, but a little bit pointless 90 per cent of time.

    However, we think it's best to say that the best thing about the iPhone is it's an all rounder, the phone for every demographic. While it does some things wrong (see below) it more than makes up for it in what it does right.

    If you're looking for an Internet phone (they should shorten that name, perhaps something like the iPhon... oh, wait, we just got that) then this is beyond par, and if you're looking for the most complete multimedia experience on a handset, then look no further than the iPhone 3GS.

    We disliked

    But the iPhone 3GS isn't perfect, which is either a clever ploy by Apple or something that it likes to do to make sure the fans stay irritated. The price alone (nearly £300 on contract for the top model?) is enough to make you do a double take, and for that cost it makes us feel the need to be critical.

    The camera is still not up to scratch, the battery life isn't great and call quality was patchy to say the least. While the screen is ultra responsive, we still had problems at the edges in terms of accuracy, and we really were hoping for an OLED effort from the latest iPhone.

    But there's far more to love than to hate on the iPhone 3GS, and it must be remembered that Apple devices are designed in such a way that they are slick and well-formed, so it's easy to want to take cheap pot-shots at them for that very fact when in fact it's still a brilliant handset.

    Verdict

    The iPhone 3GS is a tip top mobile phone. Its improved functionality is good, but it's certainly not worth upgrading for. However, if you're new to the iPhone market, then choosing between the two should also be a no-brainer - go for the iPhone 3GS. The faster speeds, better camera and a whole host of other extras will please many, and for that reason it's worth it (although we suggest you think long and hard over whether you need 32GB or just 16GB of internal memory, as there's a bit of a price hike between the two.)

    We can't help feel like the public is being played by Apple a little bit with the slow release of features like a better camera, a compass and voice memos, with each being dripped into the new handset to make it seem more current and gives Apple lovers something they have to upgrade to.

    But the point is Apple makes a device for everyone. People that don't give two hoots about mobile phones want an iPhone. Sure, we could go on and on about how the Touch Diamond2 is better at this, the i8910HD is better at that, but the truth is none package it up as well as the iPhone 3GS.

    So if you're in the market for a phone (and haven't been crippled by the credit crunch) check out the new iPhone 3GS. If you've got an iPhone 3G already, don't bother with the upgrade. The near-£1,000 some will have to shell out to get the latest model will leave you feeling sorely disappointed for the money after you realise it's not a lot different from the 3G model with 3.0 software.
