Our technological powers increase, but the side effects and potential hazards also escalate. – Alvin Toffler
From purchasing the very first iPhone back in 2007, I haven't deviated from my smartphone brand preference. And, as ironic as it has been, I have surprisingly taken my previous iPhone 4 throughout numerous countries without any problems, until I finally upgraded to the iPhone 6 in 2015. This new upgrade was extremely useful and helpful throughout my time in Korea, Spain, Gibraltar, Morocco, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Greece, Italy, The Netherlands, and China! However, just recently it frustrates me that somehow I left my phone in the kitchen of a guest house, which is completely out of character for myself, and when I woke up in a panic searching for my phone and after finding it in the communal kitchen, I noticed the screen was darkened with spots. I recognized that this was most likely due to someone spilling a liquid on it, which I never found the culprit, and so I had to replace the screen and then a few days later I noticed my batter couldn't keep a charge for more than an hour and a half! Therefore, I thought I'd share the shop in Seoul where I took my phone to get serviced. I understand there are numerous stores around the fix these devices and may be cheaper, but I have found this shop to be quick, they speak English, and it also includes a 30-day warranty. The one thing I found inconvenient is that if you want to pay with a bank card or credit card there is an additional 10% fee, therefore I have always chosen to pay cash.
Lastly, I know how frustrating it can be NOT to be able to copy and paste information so I've included it here, not just in the images. The breakdown cost was iPhone 6 replacement screen was ₩95,000 ($83.49) and the battery replacement was ₩55,000 ($48.33)
