I am not sure whose fault this is, but the prices are made ambigious to make sure Groupon sells vouchers as if it is cheap and merchant gets to make his regular money. If you are looking to het your iPhone screen repaired anywhere including this merchant, read below carefully not to feel duped later.
1. iPhone screen is two parts. One is Corning Gorilla layer with touch beneath that might have been shattered for you. Lcd is stuck below it and they are not two seperate entities. In short, you cannot just repair broken screen. Lcd replacement is inevitable
2. The replacement screens all except one at Apple comes from same China factory probably. Two biggest cons - lcd brightness is not same as original screen and glass is not corning gorilla.
3. Groupon cheats by selling shattered glass repair vouchers wheras it isnt the case when you reach the vendor. In my case, I was shown stack pile of repair worksheets where full cost is $100. These repair shops sell $60 voucher for $29 at groupon and ask additional $40 for the repair.
I think it is better to buy Apple care plan or buy a good case or get your screen repaired at Apple. Its worth the cost than feel cheated later.
James did an amazing job replacing my iPhone screen at the last few minutes before he closed the store. Such a very accommodating guy.
I was able to talk to the tech before the repair. Service was very professional and clear on the cost. Work was done very fast. I recommend this place for others.
When my phone was fixed, I saw a tiny indentation in the plastic cover he put on the phone. I thought it was just the plastic but it was a chip. Now my phone has chips on the sides and a full slice from on end to the other across the face of the phone. Kinda afraid to go back.
