iPhone screen not smooth after repair
A few days ago my phone had coffee spilled on it. Yeah bad. I took it to a repair shop and they cleaned it. They said the motherboard was fine, but that the battery, proximity sensor, ear speaker, and LCD needed to be replaced. Over $200 later, I got my phone back. Just last night.
I’m not technology savvy and I need to take it back because there are issues I see. I wanted to get advice from someone who is.
First thing I noticed is that now, the home button seems to be raised. When I run my finger over it, it feels rough around the edges of the button. It also wiggles a little bit now. I never noticed these before.
Second, the screen doesn’t seem to move as smoothly and is not as responsive as it used to be. Sometimes I have to press it two or three times to click on something. Not all the time though. Also, the 3D Touch doesn’t work right. Sometimes I have to press a lot harder, or sometimes it won’t work at all. I googled a way to test the screen and one person suggested using a doodle app and running your finger diagonally very slow and see if it’s really wavy and he showed examples with 3 different phones, one including an iPhone. In his test, the iPhone did the best. In my test, I got the wavy lines like one of the other models in his video.
Also, when I scroll slowly down or up a page, it’s choppy.
Another thing I noticed is that when I am on a phone call, the sensor that turns the screen off when you have your phone to your ear doesn’t work right. It will turn off and then back on and off and back on. That causes me to end up pressing the mute button with my cheek.
I’m pretty sure these are not apple standard parts, but shouldn’t I expect better quality?
Even now, while typing, it’s not as responsive as it once was. It selects different letters and I have to backspace a lot.
I have a feeling they are going to try and stiff me on this because of the water damage, but I just wanted an opinion from someone more knowledgeable about whether the quality should be better than what I got.
Please help! :). Thank you!
Edit: I wanted to add.. any technical terms or things that I could say to them that would help me convince them to get my phone back to a better state would be extremely helpful!! :)
Is this a good question?
