Glass phone screens will become scratched if you’re not careful. Many people deal with the scratches, but when the screen cracks, they risk cutting themselves.

When a device has touch disease, it becomes unresponsive to touch. For instance, when you go to tap on your favorite app, it will not open. No matter what you do, it will not respond to your touch.
This issue has been brought up to Apple many times, but they are hesitant to admit to the problem. Even after having a class-action lawsuit brought against them, they are not coming forward with a public acknowledgement for the faulty screens.
The touch disease issue is not one that only a couple people have experience. It’s already accounted for as much as 11 percent of Apple store repairs. This is a rate already higher than other types of repairs – yes, even cracked screens.
Touch disease often starts with a gray bar across the screen. After a short time, users report the screen become unresponsive to touch. Experts believe it may have something to do with the logic board on the device. When the device is taken out of the pocket, dropped, or slightly bent in some other way, the logic board malfunctions.
Contact Apple immediately if you believe you are experiencing “touch disease.” They will fix it or replace depending on whether they are able to return it to original functioning.

The choice of phone you use may be indicative of your personality more than you think. Scientists recently found that Android users are much more humble, kinder and honest than their rivals – iPhone users.
In the study, people in two groups (iPhone users and Android users) completed a questionnaire. Each question related to their personality. iPhone users most often chose responses that weren’t as kind, humble and honest as Android users did.
In addition to the personality questionnaire, the research team analyzed the apps each user downloaded and used. There was a clear discrepancy between what iPhone users downloaded and what Android users did.
What’s interesting is that you would think more women who fall under the humble, kind, and honest category, but actually, they were more likely to own an Apple. Men are more like to have Android phones, and well, they fell into the group with people who are more humble, kind and honest.
In addition to these personality traits, it seems as though iPhone users are more extroverted as well. I guess that does make sense, since iPhone users do tend to talk a big game about their choice in smartphone.
It’s obvious our phones are a big part of us, and we’re going to make decisions based on our likes and dislikes with each type of phone. What do you believe is true of your smartphone as it relates to your personality? It is something interesting to consider, isn’t it?

There are thousands of iPhone repair shops online today. Not all of them are reputable. Some of them will take your phone and money, and you’ll never hear from them again. It’s sad, but painfully true.
This is why it is important to read iPhone repair shop reviews before choosing a business to repair your phone.
Most of the illegitimate iPhone repair shops out there today are fly by night. They will open up shop on a website, and then quickly shut it down once they have conned people out of their money and precious phones and tablets.
Some repair shops aren’t cautious about who they employ, so they end up shutting down after a few months or even a couple years when they discover what their employees have been doing to customers.
You don’t want to be a victim of the above situations, so be sure to read reviews on iPhone repair shops.
Any repair shop for iPhones can produce their reviews. They can make up names, and they can publish these “reviews” on their website. So, never trust reviews on a website, especially if that website or business hasn’t been in operation for very long.
The best reviews are the ones online because you can verify the people writing them exist. For example, you can see on our Facebook page and Google+ page that we have many customers who have shared their positive experiences. You can see they are true social media users because of their profiles. So, pay attention to reviews on social media.
You should also seek reviews that are not only recently but from the past as well. You want to make sure the repair shop you choose has consistency in their quality of service. You also want to make sure they have been in business for long enough – at least two years or more.
iResQ has been in business since 1994. We have reviews dating back to the beginning of the 2000s and all the way up until this month. You can see them on websites, social media, and yes, we have them on our website.
We can tell you how great we are, but you probably want to read it written by our customers. Go ahead and take a look – we know you’ll be impressed.
