    Phone repair shop did a terrible job with fixing my phone...

    Put a new screen on for 80 quid...
    Looked fine in the shop, he said I need a cover because the sides are damaged... opened it up at home and there's literally light coming out from the sides?!

    I can understand the right side MAYBE where the crack was but this is on both sides... looks like a really bad job, sure there's a mark under the screen when I look at it on a white background too.

    Am I screwed ? Should I just get a cover and deal with it or question the job tomorrow?

    Open a can of man the **** up and take it back. Tell them Stevie wonder could have done a better job on a bag of whizz.

    man the **** up and go back and complain about it instead of writing about it on here.

    Even if I got a refund though could someone else rip it off and do a better job ? This phone is gonna be a mess by the end of it !

    It's 8 at night I think they would be closed...

    I paid extra for my stupid s6 edge to do that...

    Take it back tomorrow it should be applied firmly. And £80 is a lot for a new screen for a huawei phone considering the iPhone screens are around this much to replace.

    Take it back & kick off sounds like they done you over like a kipper

    ​What they should do is take the screen off then reapply the double sided tape then put the screen back on pressing it firmly down. The tape they have used is possibly old. It is an easy mistake and give them a second chance to do it right. as people have said 80 is a lot of money but politeness is key, say you are not happy and you want it perfect.

    Well, took it in and they argued it needed a bezzle ? Too but I just asked for the screen, kinda stupid that I would just want the screen and not the full thing fixed ! Said he would order it in and sort it out in a few days, he's probably hacking my phone and stealing all the data to rob me or something now. Wish I just got a Nokia 3310 now ! Grrr
