Solder Paste Questions for Replacing IC
I have recently started soldering and i wish to try to repair an Iphone 6 plus that has touch disease and 2 iphone 6s pluses that have the not charging due to the charging IC that needs to be replaced/reballed.
I have a few questions:
Do i really need to use solder paste? (I want to replace them not reball)
Is it worth it to dish out extra money for high quality solder paste from good brands like MG Chemicals or should i stick to Mechanic solder paste?
Do i need anything else to do these solderings?
I have a soldering station/heat gun with regulators and I have bought good flux from genuine Amtech and Solder wick and heat resistant tape. I've been practicing on a damaged iphone 4 logic board.
Thanks for the help.
Is this a good question?
