Positioned as a “value” iPhone (yeah, right!), the iPhone XR was launched in 2018 along with its fancier cousins iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max. The idea was to keep the core the same, while getting rid of some fluff to bring the cost down to a non-heart-attack-inducing figure. So the OLED screen was swapped with a Retina LCD screen, the steel frame was swapped with an aluminium frame (what’s that about?) and the dual camera made way for a single rear camera.
Interestingly, this phone also seemed to be tailor-made for the Indian market. Apart from the aggressive pricing, it also was the first iPhone to feature dual-SIM support. AND, boy it introduced colors! Overall, it was a great phone. And expectedly it made record-breaking sales in India.
At Fixxo, we have been getting plenty of service requests for the iPhone XR. Despite being a sturdy phone, it is still prone to the usual damages. Common repairs requested are - iPhone XR screen replacement, iPhone XR back glass replacement and iPhone XR battery replacement.
I highly recommend this place for any and all iPhone repairs. I reckon they are among the very few in the city who can handle complex repairs at the chip level. Their service and skill is impeccable and very affordable with fair pricing. I was charged Rs.4500 which i felt was very affordable given the complexity of the repair involved and also given that my data was still intact. I was quoted a price range of 6,500-14,500 in other places for the board replacement and not for a repair which was said to be impossible. What's more. I was given a 3 months warranty for the repair.
The cost incurred is dependent on the specific repair service you are looking for. Please get in touch with us - Call or WhatsApp us @8884441326, or submit a form on this website to request a callback. We shall understand the exact issue and share with you the best course of action and quotation.
Well, if you’re drooling over the shiny new iPhone (and we understand if you are!), by all means, please go ahead and buy one.
But, if you’re evaluating which option is fiscally more reasonable, then our suggestion is this - get the iPhone diagnosed, find out the tentative repair cost estimate. If the total repair quote is under, say, 20-22k, we feel it makes sense to get it repaired. If the quote is running higher than that, you may consider just upgrading to a new iPhone.
iPhone XR screen replacement is doable within a couple of hours. Back glass replacement, on the other hand, takes longer - 1-2 days.
Honestly, hard to guess. Quite often it is the battery that is faulty. Or the power button is dysfunctional. Or, and this happens quite frequently too, there is a defect on the main logic board of the iPhone.
Request you to submit the phone for diagnosis. We take a couple of days to thoroughly check the device and identify the underlying issue. Along with a diagnosis report, we provide you suggested repair options and their cost estimates.
