Since 2010, the iPad has quickly become indispensable in people’s lives as a powerful, portable and user-friendly tablet. Occupying the space between the mobile phone and the computer, the iPad resembles the modern mobile phone while boasting the power and usability of the iMac. With its touchscreen display instead of a keyboard and large range of powerful applications, the iPad was first mass-market tablet to achieve widespread popularity in the heady days of the early 2010s. From browsing on Amazon at home to watching Netflix, doing office work on a business trip to using it as a point-of-sale device - the iPad is a modern engineering marvel.

Having such amazing capabilities in one small portable machine means that there a lot of things that can go wrong though! Like its little brother the iPhone, the mobility of the iPad is often the cause of its biggest repair - breaking the screen. This can happen in many different ways but it’s usually caused by the owner dropping it onto a hard surface, such as a kitchen floor or a concrete path when out and about. The extent of the damage that an iPad suffers when it is dropped to the floor is largely down to how it lands. If the iPad hits the ground face down then it is likely that it won’t suffer too much damage as the impact is spread evenly over the entire surface. However, this impact may weaken the integrity of the material which can make it more susceptible to shattering if it gets dropped again, even if you can’t see any visible damage. If your iPad hits the ground on one of its corners though, the uneven surface means that all the energy from the fall hits a small point and is focused which leads to a shattered screen.

When one of these things happen all of them are likely to elicit a wince, a curse or at worst, a scream! The iPad is an expensive piece of kit whatever way you look at it and its manufacturer can certainly charge you a lot to fix the screen. Thankfully Dr Mobile Repairs offer an unbeatable service at a price that you can afford. Here is how they do it:

The iPad Glass 14-Step Repair Process

1. Back Up

Firstly, the engineer will back up all of your data using iTunes or iCloud to ensure that your precious information is safe.

2. Heating

The engineer then will heat up the sides of the iPad using a heat gun. The purpose of this is to make the adhesive that holds the screen panel in place unstuck.

3. Prying

A thin pry tool is inserted into a top corner of the iPad to gradually inch the screen up. Once the corner of the iPad has become successfully separated, the engineer keeps the pry tool under the panel and employs another prying tool to slide down and remove the entire panel. Great care is used during this process as the WiFi antenna or the cameras digitiser cable can easily be damaged. The heat gun is often applied again at this stage to enable to smooth removal of the panel.

4. Disconnecting The Panel From The Main Circuit Board

Now that the engineer has the front panel off of the iPad, he or she will need to disconnect it from the circuit board. To do this the engineer will remove the LCD display by unscrewing its screws and disconnecting the LCD plug which is under the LCD screen. The panel is now free to be removed.

5. Removing The Panel

The engineer can now remove the front panel by using the two locking levels that fasten it to the body of the iPad’s case.

6. Removing The Camera Digitiser Cable

The next job for the engineer is to remove the camera digitiser cable. This is located at the bottom left of the iPad and needs to be slowly peeled away from the metal shielding of the main board.

7. Removing The Home Button

As the smashed front panel is now one hundred percent removed, the engineer now has to remove the home button. He or she does this by using a screwdriver to take out its two screws and then using the heat gun again to heat up the bracket holding it. The engineer can then pry the button off and then remove the camera plate at the top. The engineer then takes special care to remove all the adhesive by scraping it off with help from the heat gun again.

8. Reattach The Home Button

Now that everything is ready for the replacement, the engineer will reattach the home button to the new front panel.

9. Reattach The Metal Camera Plate

Next, the engineer will reattach the metal camera plate to the new front panel.

10. Reconnect The Digitiser Cable

By flipping down the two locking levers, the engineer can reattach the digitiser cable so that the iPad case and front panel are connected again.

11. Reconnect the LCD Screen

The next task for the engineer is to reconnect the LCD screen by using the four screws that were removed earlier.

12. Checking

The engineer then carefully places the front panel onto the iPad to ensure that it aligns as it should. By turning on the iPad, he or she can also make sure that it works properly and boots up. If everything looks good then the engineer will turn the iPad off.

13. Adhesive

Once the engineer knows that everything is properly aligned and working as it should, he or she can apply adhesive to the iPad body. Extra care is taken to ensure that there is no dust or dirt trapped between the LCD screen and the front panel of glass.

14. Flip The Front Panel

The engineer’s last step is to very carefully flip the front panel onto the iPad case and make sure that it aligns correctly while sticking to the adhesive as it should. Once he is confident that it’s all held down securely the engineer can then inspect the screen and appreciate his or her handiwork.

It’s hard to consider a world in which touch screens aren’t an integral part of our lives. What seemed like a far-flung fantasy from the realms of a sci-fi novel 50 years ago has swiftly become the most efficient way to use some of our most popular electronic products.

Throughout the world, we have welcomed touch screen technology, utilising it for our phones, computers and tablets and it doesn’t look like it’ll be slowing down anytime soon. With this in mind, we decided to take a closer look at this essential technology and how it irrevocably changed the world.

3 Ways touch screens changed the world

Humble beginnings

Although the advent of touch screen technology seems to be a relatively recent affair, it’s beginnings can be traced all the way back to 1965. E.A. Johnson is credited with creating what would be known as the first capacitive screen, the technology needed to allow for touch screen technology to work.

From here on, various innovations tweaking the technology began to appear throughout the 20th century, from Hewlett-Packard’s HP -150, one of the first fully functioning touch screen computers made in 1983 to the Simon Personal Computer, the first touch screen phone made a mere 10 years later.

The touch screen invasion

Of course, it wasn’t until the turn of the millennium that touch screen technology really came into its own. Windows released their first touch screen tablet in 2002, helping to kick off the consumer market for touch screen products. However, it would be Apple that took the world by storm when it released the iconic iPhone in 2007, becoming the blueprint for all phones used today.

Since then, touchscreen technology has become a way of life, with over 60% of the UK population owning a touch screen smartphone. It’s also now becoming more and more commonplace for touch screen computers to be used, especially within creative industries such as graphic design.

The future of touch screen technology

The future really is limitless when it comes to touchscreen technology and many are beginning to look toward the new and exciting ways we could one day see touchscreens being utilised.

Optical recognition is the next big step in touchscreen innovation, filling the screen with infrared components that will allow the screen to technically ‘see’ what is touching its surface. This will allow you to simply wave your hand above the screen to use it an lá Minority Report!

Keep your touchscreens safe with Dr Mobile Phone Repair

Touchscreen technology really has revolutionised how we interact with electronics in the modern era, however, when they break, it can be a real pain.

Luckily, at Dr Mobile Phone Phone Repairs, we offer our customers comprehensive mobile and laptop screen repair so you can rest assured that you can scroll to your heart's delight. For more information, visit our website.

As a scaffolder or construction worker, it is your responsibility to make sure that any equipment you use on site is of the highest quality and can be used safely at all times. This is especially true when working at height, as relying on poorly constructed scaffolding structures can be extremely dangerous. With this in mind, we share our guide to inspecting your scaffolding responsibly.

What you need to know
Inspecting your scaffolding isn’t just a recommendation - it’s a legal requirement. When using scaffolding, you are legally required to conduct regular inspections of the structure during its use - a requirement put in place by the government to prevent accidents and fatalities from occurring. According to the government, these inspections must take place before the scaffolding has been erected, every seven days following this point, and if it’s been exposed to poor weather conditions.

What you need to inspect


Previous user reports
If you’ve hired the scaffolding from a dedicated company, ask if they have any records from the previous company that rented it. If they had any problems when using the scaffolding, or noticed any cosmetic damage worth being aware of, it should be recorded here.

Weight limits

Before the scaffolding in question is erected or used, it’s important to be aware of the structure’s weight restrictions. It’s highly important that you don’t overload your scaffolding, as this could cause a whole range of problems, from damaged poles to a collapsed structure in the worst case scenario. Make sure you check the height and weight restrictions with your hire company before you put it up to avoid any problems later on. As a general rule, scaffolding structures should be able to support at least four times the intended load.

Safety rails

Safety rails, including guardrails and toe boards, are an essential feature of all scaffolding towers as they keep employees safe and equipment from falling at height. For this reason, making sure they’re in place and are functioning as efficiently as they are designed to should be an important part of your weekly scaffolding inspections.

Access areas

To allow your employees to mount and dismount the scaffolding safely via the designated routes, you’ll need to make sure these are clear and easily accessible at all times. Without clear exit and entrance points, your staff may be more likely to take risks by climbing on unstable poles or putting up ladders incorrectly to reach their work platform.

These are just a few things you must check when carrying out a scaffolding inspection, but for a truly comprehensive safety check you must also inspect:
  • The way your employees are mounting/dismounting the scaffolding.
  • The personal protective equipment (PPE) your employees are wearing.
  • The condition of the ground on the scaffold site.

To make sure your scaffolding has been inspected to the highest possible standard, why not hire a professional scaffold inspection service? At DH Scaffold Services Ltd, our team of experts are on hand to conduct comprehensive inspections and will provide you with a full report of any issues, so you can rest assured that your scaffolding is safe for use. We also offer quotations and surveys in addition to as-built scaffolds to suit your project requirements.

Working at height comes with a large number of risks, especially when you’re using tools and equipment that could potentially fall. For this reason, it’s imperative that everyone who works at height, including scaffolders, take the necessary precautions to prevent accidents and even fatalities from occurring.

One such precaution is to wear the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for the job at hand. Not only does it look professional, but it is also essential to keeping scaffolders safe. Here are just five pieces of PPE that all scaffolders should wear:

Safety harness

Whether you’re working on the first floor of a residential property or the tenth floor of an office block, it’s important to minimise the risk of falling from height as much as possible. For this reason, it’s highly recommended that all scaffolders wear safety harnesses when working at heights of six feet or higher. When attached and used appropriately, a harness provides a much-needed safety net in the event of slips and trips.

Hard hat
Even when you aren’t working at height yourself, it’s essential to protect yourself from any debris or building tools that may fall from above. A sturdy hard hat is the only way to do this effectively, so make sure you’re wearing one at all times on site. A falling hammer or paintbrush can cause a whole lot of damage, even if it only falls a short distance, so prepare for all eventualities with protective headwear.

Protective clothing
As with any outside job, protective overalls may be required to keep you warm and dry in unpleasant weather conditions. It is never advisable to carry on working at height if it’s raining or particularly windy, however, it’s a good idea to be prepared if you find yourself working in poor weather. Make sure you have waterproof clothing and consider wearing overalls, as all-in-one pieces are much less likely to snag on safety rails.

Sturdy footwear
To prevent slips and trips at height, it’s imperative to invest in good-quality safety footwear. Wearing thick, non-slip boots can help to minimise the risk of stumbling and falling, particularly if the scaffolding is wet and slippery due to poor weather conditions. Make sure you opt for boots with steel-capped toes, too, as these will protect your feet from any falling objects.

Protective gloves

Thick, protective gloves aren’t just for keeping your hands warm, although this is one of their primary functions. Gloves with additional grip are a necessary addition to any scaffolder’s PPE kit as they are suitable for use when mounting the scaffolding and carrying equipment from place to place. Without the extra grip, scaffolders will struggle to get a firm grasp on the structure’s safety rails and may be prone to dropping equipment.

While the correct PPE is essential, working at height safely also relies on the erection of good-quality scaffolding towers. Without strong and stable scaffolding, your workers could be at risk of falling from height or dropping equipment. For this reason, it’s essential to hire your scaffolding from a company that puts quality and safety at the forefront of everything they do.

At DH Scaffold Services Ltd, scaffolding specialists based in Sheffield, we’re proud to offer just that. We provide first-rate scaffolding solutions to customers across the UK, in addition to offering quotations and surveys, design packages and more. For more information about our range of scaffolding solutions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at DH Scaffold Services Ltd today.

Ever dropped your phone and felt the anguish before you picked it up that the screen may be cracked or that something internal may have been damaged when it hit the ground? You’re not alone! Despite the fact that most of us try are best to be careful with our mobile phones, many hit the ground every day and almost 20 million people are estimated to have a broken phone in the UK that they still use. Some people are even happy to buy a slightly damaged mobile phone if it’s one of the top brands such as iPhone or Samsung. Dr. Mobile, experts in tablet and mobile phone repairs let you in on some of the facts about smartphone repairs in the U.K.

Top three phone types repaired in 2017:

In 2017, the demand for repairing certain types of phones was higher than others. Unsurprisingly, the iPhone 6 was the most repaired phone and a sizeable percentage of iPhone 7 handsets were also in for cracked screen repair. In second place was the Samsung S6 handset, which proves that both technology giants are still at the forefront of smartphones. Third place was awarded to Sony Xperia.

Putting your phone in rice is a myth

Despite the strong urban myth to the contrary, putting your phone in a bag of rice will not repair water damage. Drying the phone out may allow the phone to operate again temporarily, but it is not a permanent fix and only a phone expert can advise what has gone on internally. Water damage usually spells the end for a phone, whether now or in a couple of week’s time. Similarly, placing your phone on top of a radiator won’t help it recover and could in fact damage it further, so if you’re one of the 6% of UK citizens who think this, then you are sadly mistaken.

Samsung and iPhone repairs don’t cost as much as you think!

More than a quarter of the population are worried about how much they’ll have to spend if they need to fix their mobile phone. However, Dr. Mobile can fix your screen from about £19 and we offer 3 months warranty with that!

Facts and figures
  • 31% of people in the UK think it costs more than £100 to fix a mobile phone (this is incorrect)
  • Around 22% of people in the UK use a phone with a cracked screen
  • 9% are using a smartphone that doesn’t charge properly
  • 16% of users believe their phone’s battery needs replacement
  • Damaged iPhones that can still make and take calls are being sold for up to 60% of their value on second-hand sites
  • 28% of Brits believe that fixing a smartphone takes around a week or longer (incorrect!)
  • 40% of Brits say they couldn’t last more than a day whilst their phone is being fixed!

Mobile, iPad and Tablet Repairs

If you need iPhone or Samsung repairs Dr. Mobile can help. Don’t walk around with a broken phone – call us on 079 7012 3451 and we’ll have it sorted quickly and at an unbeatable price!

With the advancement of technology forever expanding, it can be easy to forget what mobiles were like before all the features we now use were invented. Here are four of the best mobile trends and features that have taken the world by storm.

Emojis and language
Texting without emojis seems like an alien concept. In the beginning there were emoticons, and animated images used on chat room sites, which meant you could send that cheeky wink to someone you fancied. But emojis are more than just a smiley faces, they’re a language of their own and represent the way we communicate digitally. The first emoji was designed by Japanese artist Shigetaka Kurita in 1999. With an aim of creating a simple way to convey information, Kurita sketched pixel images that could be accessed by your mobile’s keyboard. His range of 176 emojis are now a permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. From characters showing the weather, vehicles and hearts, digital messaging was given a boost of personality and emotion. In today’s world emojis have come a long way, and represent a whole new range of lifestyles, races and ages.

Downloadable ring tones
In early-mid 2000’s, having your ringtone as the latest chart topper or movie theme song was the definition of cool. But, you can’t talk about ringtones without mentioning Crazy Frog. 21 years since it first came into our lives, the tune was a surprisingly massive hit throughout 2005. The sound was created by Daniel Malmedahl as he impersonated the sound of a two stroke engine. In 2003 Erik Wernquist was inspired to create a CGI character to accompany the noise, and the popularity of this lead to ringtone company Jamster België getting on board. They renamed the character and Crazy Frog was born. With a remix of Axel F, the frog launched a pop career and spent four weeks at number 1 in the UK charts: much to Coldplay’s dismay who were beaten by 113,000 copies. The number of streams and downloads means that Crazy Frog is a platinum selling single. But, still as annoying as ever.

Apps
Before, apps were games like Snake, a classic feature of Nokia phones. However, for millennials their phones are dominated by apps such as Instagram, Snapchat and Whatsapp. The need to access your social media while on-the-go makes these examples some of the most popular in the world. But gaming on your mobile is still a popular past time. Candy Crush and Angry Birds being some of the staple games that come to mind. In recent years we’ve also been hit with popular apps such as Pokemon Go and Flappy Bird. The latter being so addictive that it was later banned. With an app for almost any area, they’ve become a daily tool in many people’s lives.

Camera
When you’re not taking a selfie featuring a Snapchat filter, you need your phone’s camera to be high quality. Gone are the days of fuzzy pictures. The first mobile with a built in camera was manufactured by Samsung, featuring a 0.35 megapixel lense, you wouldn't have been on top of your selfie game with that phone. In comparison, today’s phones can shoot in 4K video and the resolution of some cameras can make your selfies look like professional headshots.

If your phone isn’t functioning the way it should, or your cracked screen is stopping you from scrolling, Dr Repair can help you back on the road to mobile phone recovery. As professionals in electronic device repair, our Nottingham store team have a range of skills to fix your mobile, tablet or laptop. Pop in or call us today for more information.

Since the first ever telephone invented in 1876, phones have come a long way. We now live in a golden age of technology, but some devices can never be forgotten. From the 1980’s when yuppies ruled the streets with the iconic ‘brick’ phone, to the flip phone owned by teenage girls in every chick flick, it seems mobile phones have taken the world by storm.

The ‘brick’ phone

In 1985 the first mobile phone arrived in Britain, bringing with it a hefty price tag of £3,000 and upwards in today’s money. This meant that having a mobile phone was considered a luxury, with young business professionals being the main consumer - and with that the creation of the ‘Yuppie’ was born. The Wolf of Wall Street is a great example of how yuppies operated in the 1980’s. Today, the oversized phone seems comical compared to the compact devices we now all own. But, while we may all laugh, the phones have surprisingly retained high value. Those lucky enough to own one have sold them for thousands in some cases- irony at its finest.

Flip Phone

Just like belly tops, scrunchies and platform shoes the flip phone was an iconic feature of the mid-90’s. Many teen chick-flicks featured the classic phone as a symbol of high school life, and of course those watching had to have one too. Let’s face it, the feeling of slamming a flip phone shut after an argument was the definition of satisfaction. The trend carried on into the early 2000’s, and even now it’s recognised as a timeless piece full of nostalgia.

Nokia 3310

Who can forget the classic Nokia 3310. Released on September 1, 2000, the phone proved a popular hit selling more than 126 million devices, making it one of the most popular mobiles of it’s time. The 3310 introduced a new form of communication, allowing people to chat via text instead of via phone calls. You could also customise this bad boy with press on covers, and who can forget that clear waterproof case complete with belt clip. Joking aside, one great feature of this mobile is the outstanding battery life. One full charge would provide you with an amazing 22 hours of talk time, and would keep running for 31 days in standby mode.

Blackberry

Although designed for business use, the Blackberry craze was followed by many teenagers. The novel keyboard proved popular, but it was the ingenious Blackberry Messenger that really proved a hit with teens. The free messenger service allowed you to chat to your friends for free, similar to Whatsapp, without running up a hefty bill. Sharing your ‘BB pin’ was the pinnacle of all young Blackberry users.

Iphone

Last but in no way least is Apple’s Iphone. On November 9, 2007, the first generation iphone was launched in Europe, with CEO Steve Jobs announcing it’s computer-like capabilities that hadn’t been seen before. Since then, the Iphone has gone on to get bigger and better, making Apple one of the top three smartphone companies in the world. The Iphone has changed how we interact; we are no longer limited to calls and texts, but apps, social media and games have connected us in a whole new way. Without the Iphone it’s difficult to predict how we’d use mobile devices today.

Is a smashed phone screen getting you down? Has your laptop run out of warranty and you can’t afford a hefty bill? If the answer is yes, then Nottingham based repair shop Dr Repair is where you need to go. We specialise in repairing a wide range of devices, and pride ourselves on our 30 minutes repair time for almost any problem. Each repair comes with a 3 month warranty for your piece of mind.

These days, most of us have some sort of personal computer at home or at work. Whether it’s to help you keep on top of your workload or to simply binge your favourite shows on Netflix, laptops have firmly planted themselves within our day to day lives.

Because of this, when our computers begin to run into problems, it can be extremely irritating. Laptops are expensive pieces of kit and the thought of having to fork out hundreds if not thousands of pounds on a new model is never going to be fun.

However, before you give up on your beloved computer and trade it in for a new one, it might be worth taking it in to have a professional technician see if they can sort the problem out first. Some issues that arise with our computers can be quickly rectified and in some cases, can be solved with little to no cost. With this in mind, here are some of the most common laptop problems and how to fix them.

Overheating

This is an issue that you may not notice until problems start arising, but a laptop that is constantly overheating will lead to crashes and other hardware failures. If you’re noticing these problems or even if your laptop feels exceedingly hot, it’s important to spend time cleaning the air vents around the computer aiding in cooling. This can be done by simply running a cloth over the vents to unclog any excess dust.

If you still have problems you made need to update your BIOS, which is in charge of your laptop’s hardware. An update may aid in your laptops heat management and sort the problem out.

Running slow?

If your laptop is running lots of different things at once, it’s going to be pretty likely that it’ll slow down. However, if you find that your computer is being irritatingly slow for seemingly no reason at all, it could be a sign of other problems.

One of the most common culprits behind this problem is the build-up of disorganised information making computational decisions take longer. To counteract this, Windows has a built-in disk defragmenter to counteract this very problem, however, you can buy defragmentation programmes which do the same thing.

Battery not charging

Laptops are pretty great due to their portability, so if you’re finding the battery dying on you after five minutes away from a plug socket, you might be currently pulling your hair out. This is always a bit of a difficult one as batteries deteriorate over time, however, some decline faster than others.

If this is the case, you’ll likely need to swap in a new battery to see any positive results. Buying straight from the retailer can be expensive so visiting your local repair shop could save you a significant amount of cash.

Quality laptop repair in Nottingham

When your laptop runs into problems, it can be a real pain to know what to do next. Rather than paying over the odds for a new model or a repair by the manufacturer, bring you faulty computer to Dr Mobile Phone Repairs.

Our team of technicians are on hand to make all necessary repairs and tweaks to get your laptop running at optimum efficiency. For more information on our range of repair services, visit our website.

Let’s face it, we all experience problems with our mobile phones from time to time. No matter how well designed and durable a smartphone may be, it’s bound to experience some issue or the other at some point. And that shouldn’t come as a major surprise considering the amount we use it.

Even Samsung phones, which are known to be high quality and extremely well made, can suffer accidents or internal breakdowns occasionally.

So, what do you do if you experience any problems with your Samsung device?

Simple, you seek out a Samsung phone repair specialist. A Samsung repair expert will be qualified in dealing with all and any issues related to your device, including the common issue of Samsung screen repair. No matter which Samsung model or related issue you have, it’s likely that your repair specialist is familiar with fixing it.

Let’s take a closer look at the specific issues that a Samsung phone repair specialist can help you with.

First and foremost, a Samsung repair specialist will have the knowledge and expertise to repair any model of Samsung phone.

Replacement parts for your Samsung phone

If you’ve had your Samsung phone for a while, you may need replacement parts to get it back in working order.

But don’t panic - most Samsung phone repair issues are fixable.

Replacing your phone’s parts can be a cost-effective and simple way to boost its performance without the need to invest in a whole new device. You’d be surprised how much better your existing phone can serve you with a few replacements.

Samsung screen repair

As a mobile phone repair specialists, we get multiple daily enquiries for screen repair. No matter how high-quality your smartphone is, accidents happen and the screen is often the most likely to suffer. Most UK smartphone screens are manufactured using toughened glass which is built to
endure accidents. But even these durable materials can still crack or break if dropped from a height. Most cracked screens still work but they look unsightly and can make deciphering text on your screen difficult.

A Samsung repair specialist will be able to help you with Samsung screen repair easily. They’ll know exactly which screen can be fixed without the need for a replacement, and which one needs to be fitted with a new one. Place your broken screen phone (and trust) in the hands of
an expert and you’ll get it back as good as new.

Although your Samsung warranty doesn’t cover broken screens, Samsung repair specialists will fix it to a high standard using only official Samsung replacement screens.

Samsung battery replacements

If your Samsung device isn’t working as well as it once did, it could be due to battery issues. At Dr. Mobile Phone Repair, we can replace your battery quickly and easily. We have many Samsung replacements in stock so you won’t have to wait to get your phone back in your hands.

Software advice about Android

Your Samsung phone could be in great working order, but you could be wondering how you can make better use of all its features. A Samsung phone repair specialist can also offer you advice on how to make the best use of your new phone.

Not only can we take you through all the features of your device itself, but we can also offer advice about how to use Android. This is especially useful for those of you who may have just switched over from iPhone to Android. We’ll help you learn how to navigate your new Operating System and programme your phone to your desired settings.

Wondering how you can update your software? Just pop in to see us and we’ll be able to do this for you quickly.

Fixing a faulty charging port

It can be extremely frustrating if your Samsung phone simply refuses to charge. This could be due to a damaged charging port. Luckily, a Samsung phone repair specialist will be able to rectify this for you quite quickly and easily.

Ever dropped your phone and felt the anguish before you picked it up that the screen may be cracked or that something internal may have been damaged when it hit the ground? You’re not alone! Despite the fact that most of us try are best to be careful with our mobile phones, many hit the ground every day and almost 20 million people are estimated to have a broken phone in the UK that they still use. Some people are even happy to buy a slightly damaged mobile phone if it’s one of the top brands such as iPhone or Samsung. Dr. Mobile, experts in tablet and mobile phone repairs let you in on some of the facts about smartphone repairs in the U.K.

Top three phone types repaired in 2017:

In 2017, the demand for repairing certain types of phones was higher than others. Unsurprisingly, the iPhone 6 was the most repaired phone and a sizeable percentage of iPhone 7 handsets were also in for cracked screen repair. In second place was the Samsung S6 handset, which proves that both technology giants are still at the forefront of smartphones. Third place was awarded to Sony Xperia.

Putting your phone in rice is a myth

Despite the strong urban myth to the contrary, putting your phone in a bag of rice will not repair water damage. Drying the phone out may allow the phone to operate again temporarily, but it is not a permanent fix and only a phone expert can advise what has gone on internally. Water damage usually spells the end for a phone, whether now or in a couple of week’s time. Similarly, placing your phone on top of a radiator won’t help it recover and could in fact damage it further, so if you’re one of the 6% of UK citizens who think this, then you are sadly mistaken.
