Is it worth upgrading to the iPhone 7?

Posted on October 6, 2016 By

Later than usual this year, Apple released the iPhone 7 on September 7th 2016 to the satisfaction of the millions of Apple fans worldwide. No doubt users will upgrade without considering the alternatives, however for those that are on the fence about upgrading from either an existing iPhone 5 or perhaps an Android device, there are some newer features to consider before pulling the trigger. With many people selling their iPhone 6 and 6S devices, those have become less expensive on the local market, so it is a great time to consider getting a gently used iPhone 6 as well. CNET and other tech sites have excellent reviews on the iPhone. View our site for pricing and to book your phone repair below.

Best New iPhone 7 Features

Camera: The front and rear camera have been improved upon dramatically. More specifically the dual-rear camera is slim and can make wide shots much easier for the average user to accomplish without using apps or programs to stitch it together to make it look decent. This is a big draw for users that want a camera with a high enough quality barrier that it does the job for vacations and other social events.

Headphone Jacks: This phone is the thinnest yet, and it’s because Apple has made serious changes to the way the headphones work going forward. The classic 3.5mm jack is now gone which has made the overall profile thinner and you can now use a dongle to connect the headphones to the lightning port connector. Many people don’t like this option, and if you don’t then definitely consider upgrading to the iPhone 6S which is similar but has the classic phone jack.

Dallas is a pretty wide open city. Both geographically as well as culturally speaking it’s got a lot to offer. However some of the CKLR editors were recently enjoying the Texas weather and people, and being the iPhone nerds they are, had to stick their nose into the local cell phone repair scene and see what was going on. Given the amount of suburbs in Dallas, we chose to focus on one repair shop in the Fort Worth area and how they are doing things differently for Apple users in the area.

How We Found Fort Worth iPhone Repair

A quick Google search for phone repair in Dallas and the Fort Worth area yields tons of the normal competitors – Ubreakifix, CellSavers, local mom and pop shops – the area has it all. But for us, Fort Worth iPhone repair, despite it’s mediocre name had an excellent website, and tons of reviews from local happy customers. CKLR editors visited their friendly shop and found some equally fanatical iPhone nerds. These guys know exactly what they are doing and are certainly passionate about providing an excellent repair experience. They aren’t looking to throw a cheap screen on your beloved iPhone 6S, make a quick buck and kick you out – they seem to actually care about explaining the third party iPhone repair process to the average consumer. Many people are wary of this type of repair option, and it’s always nice to see legit businesses do their part to help users make an informed on what exactly is happening with their phone when they bring it in.

Testing Out iPhone 6 Repair in DFW

In terms of the actual quality of repair, we did indeed try them out. We sacrificed our iPhone 6 screen for..uh…science. We smashed it and had the professional iPhone repair technicians at Fort Worth iPhone Repair give it their best chance to wow us and our own set of Apple nerds. Suffice to say, we checked their work and it was stellar. The screen they installed was of superior quality, and the process was painless, convenient and not priced out of range at all. A complete iPhone 6 screen replacement cost us $130 as of September 2016 and the installation and part was backed by a solid 60 day warranty which made us feel pretty good about things. Peace of mind is always something we look for in mobile device repairs, considering how many small shops there are that use mediocre quality parts in the Dallas area.

Overall, we would definitely recommend the repair services of Fort Worth iPhone Repair if you find yourself on the outskirts of Dallas. They have several different locations serving the Burleson, Frisco and Sherman areas and seem like a great bunch of guys who care about the end product.

Boost iPhone Battery Life Easily

Posted on May 21, 2016 By

If you are an iPhone 4S or 5 owner, and have had your device for 10-12 months you’re likely annoyed and frustrated with the degradation of the overall batter life. As is usually the case, fixing individual hardware problems is not the easiest to do officially through Apple. Extra charging accesories are a pain and a bandaid solution, but the fact is that replacing the battery is often easier and much less expensive then you may think. However, there are even some software changes you can make right now that should extend your overall iPhone battery duration so you can make it through your day or long enough to get through work.

Software Options For Saving iPhone Battery Life in Tampa

Disabling or toggling off apps that use massive amounts of battery life is the first thing you can do to make sure you get a boost.You can also minimize screen brightness, but at a certain point this will only become a problem as the summer months of 2016 bring more hours of brighter sunlight. Ultimately, the best option is getting a local Tampa cell phone repair shop to replace the actual hardware battery and get your phone lasting the entire day no matter how many apps or YouTube videos you want to watch or run.

There are indeed low quality replacement batteries floating around on the market, especially in the Tampa area, and this is something you’ll want to avoid. The savings are minimal, and installation of a weak battery can not only have a horrible duration, but may actually leak acid and do damage to the interior of your phone. Be sure there is a clear and concise warranty with whichever Tampa cell phone repair shop you go with and that they have an established track record for quality repairs using quality components.

There are tons of accessories like battery boosting iPhone cases you can purchase to get the most out of your iPhone, but our best recommendation would be a place like Tampa iPhone Repair – they can get a simple battery replacement done in 30 minutes and you can easily extend the lifespan of your older device for a few months at least.
