How to choose b/iPhone and not to get on tricks of swindlers
Hello to all readers AppleInsider.ru! Today service center ModMac will share their experiences and give tips on buying used iPhone.
So, where do we start the purchase of the phone? Of course, selecting the proper ads. Just say that you should not consider the ad in which the price of the phone significantly below the market. In the end, will tell you to either pay for the phone before sending it, or you will spend a lot of time waiting for the “seller” on any edge. Pay attention to the ads, which price is not too high. Ask for links to human social networks to be sure that it’s not instant selling quite serviceable apparatus. Usually all phones are the same price and differ by 1-3 thousand depending on model and condition. You should also decide whether you need a full set, depends on the cost. Pay attention to the battery level of the device.
An example of a “dishonest” ads
Further inspection of the phone, you need to pay attention to the IMEI converges if the number is on the case (the SIM tray) with the number in the settings (and on the box, if any). To check you can dial *#06#.
The bolts at the bottom (below the corners were not “pinched”) is the first sign that the phone was in repairs. Note that this determination is still difficult, and rely heavily on this trick is not worth it.
Pay attention to the glass chamber. If you see that beneath the dust, most likely, the device was dealt with.
Next case: its geometry should not be disturbed. How to check? Take the phone in your hand and look at him as a target for shooting, the deviations will be noticed immediately (especially on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus). Also strong dents on the corners or behind — the harbingers of the problems, perhaps serious inside the phone.
Then comes the display, inspect the upper part of the display module, the glass should fit snugly on the upper part of the body. If it’s unstuck, it means the body is deformed or is a display of poor quality. The display: the colors should be saturated, the response is perfect (hold down any icon and get her over the whole area of the screen, if the label lasted until the end of the problems, probably not), view the status of oleophobic coating. Another important feature that is hard to notice, especially visible on black screens: look a bit at an angle to the screen, compare as far as color suppressed display is different from the frame. If the difference is not critical, it’s okay if the display gives much in the gray color is a sign of unoriginal display. For iPhone 6, 6s, 7 swipe your finger across the edge of the display in the housing, the switch should not feel much body is almost monolithic. If not here is another copy.
Then check the fingerprint scanner Touch ID, if present. All buttons, earphone Jack. Call 112, thereby check the speaker (auditory, primary), hold your hand over the ear speaker, check the proximity sensor. Test run the camera, flash, recorder, be sure to check the work of compass, Siri (she had a microphone), GPS, LTE. About the availability of an iCloud account will not even talk.
Work time is given in “Settings” — “Battery”, but know that time can be extended by periodic deserado, not reaching to 100% and also improved the time in the settings.
By the way, there’s a secret technique! Go to “Settings” — “Privacy” — “Diagnostics and usage” — “Data” and enter the storehouse of the apparatus. Of course, if you don’t understand it, to understand it will be difficult, so just go through the records and note on the label, PANIC, CRASH, and all similar “bad words”. If any, suggest to continue the inspection apparatus in the service center.
Now look at the charge and remember how it was in the beginning, you remember. Well, I estimate how much time you spent on the examination of the patient, and in the preparation of the light proportions know whether the battery is alive.
After verification, make conclusions, you need this device or not is determined by the price and obtain the perfect for you. I also want to say that we are always ready to conduct a comprehensive diagnosis of the device in our service, because without an autopsy many things not to notice. Was flooded? Traces of soldering? Something changed? Not restored if the camera? That is completely fine, I suggest to change, well, everything-all about the life of the apparatus as a whole.
