So I got a call from a customer couple weeks back about repairing a cracked iPhone 5 Screen. I told him that the price of the iPhone 5 screen is very expensive and currently Apple is the cheapest option. Also I told him price of the screens are dropping so he just has to wait it out just a little bit. He said he wants to know the price so I told him the cost of the screen is 210$ and the labor will be 20$ and he just went into a rage saying how I am trying to make money off of him and that he found the glass of a iPhone 5 screen for 30$ on eBay. I told him that the glass comes attached to the LCD of the iPhone 5 Screen and its literally impossible to disassembly the glass from the LCD. He said no, I’m lying and hung up on me. Couple days ago I get a call from this same person and saying he tried to remove the glass from the LCD and damaged his LCD and he had no choice but to purchase the repair from us. I told him that the price of the screen has dropped from 200$ to 180$ plus a 20$ labor fee and he was happy he saved 30$ but he still paid 30$ for the iPhone 5 glass.
So why is the iPhone 5 Screen so expensive? for the last 4 month’s we have been researching why the screens are so expensive and how can we get them for cheap to make sure our customers pay as little as possible out of their pockets. We figured out that the reason for the price to be so high is because of different reasons ranging from the new screen size, Apple cracking down on fake copies of screens so the supply of the original iPhone 5 screen will be low and every iPhone 5 screen that is made is automatically used by Apple to create the iPhone 5 because of the high demand of the product.
We tell all our customers just wait unless you have no choice, we don’t mind repairing the device for you but we feel bad that you must pay so much for such a simple repair. We currently found a great price for iPhone 5 screens and we are working on getting them even lower! So just wait it out because soon you’ll have your iPhone 5 screen repaired for a low low price!
