    Praise! Mobile Phones Repairs Coventry 15th Jul 17 at 4:47 PM
    I thought I'd post a Praise for once on this board.

    Background: On Friday morning I dropped my phone and it landed on its screen and the glass cracked.

    I went on the internet to find somewhere who could repair it and got in touch with a company called Mobile Phones Repairs Coventry.

    I dropped them an email via their website detailing what the problem was and asking them for the cost and turnaround.

    Within 10 minutes I had a reply with that information, so I agreed to drop my phone off today when they opened at 10:30.

    I picked up my phone just after 1 pm and they've done a really good job on it - you wouldn't know it's not got the original screen on it.

    The job cost me £65 - that was for supplying the new screen (which they had in stock) and labour for fitting it.

    I did originally say it was a 1st Gen Moto G, so the original quote was for £55, but they told me it's a 2nd Gen so the actual cost was a little more.

    Either way, I've got a new screen and my phone's fully usable.

    Also praise to Corning for the Gorilla Glass because when it cracked it was like safety glass in a windscreen.

    You got a good result. Some phones are much more easily and quickly fixed than others.

    They're also one of the few places I found with my Google-Fu that list being able to fix Motorola phones - most of the other places primarily list Apple, Samsung, LG and Sony (for example).
