Screen Fixed, humble beginnings.

screen fixed level 16 200 mary street, Brisbane cit

Thinking back to 2014 will trigger many different things, for many different people. We saw a deadly outbreak of Ebola, Robin Williams left this world and we made space history by landing on the surface of a comet. What was I doing through all of this? In a scene, like the classic Universal picture, Frankenstein, I brought life to Screen Fixed.

Ever since I was a child, I’ve had an urge, a need, to have the latest tech, or the latest gadgets, and coupled with that need was a desire to know how it all worked, and that was the seed.

Cut to 2014 and my amazing team of equally passionate (nerdy?) and talented friends has not just allowed us to provide you, the tech lover and user, with unparalleled service for your many devices, but it’s allowed me to live my life long dream.

New Screen Fixed CBD HQ – Level 16, 200 Mary Street, Brisbane City QLD 4000

The last three years have been so rewarding, not just for me, but for the whole team, watching the hard work we put in, pay off. The services we offer don’t cut corners and as such we are able to provide the highest quality repairs possible for your smart phone of choice, and on top of the craftmanship and quality, it’s the customer service that sets us so far ahead of the others.

We’ve found that our on-demand design really has had people talking, we travel across the city each day to each of our clients, to quickly, skilfully and (most importantly) conveniently meet our client’s needs.

We refuse to rest on our laurels though, we strive to be the one stop repair choice for everyone. So, taking in feedback and listening to what people are asking for, we’ve seen a need for a centralized repair centre. This gives our clients more choices when it comes to dropping phones off, or picking them up. When it suits them, the important part.

Mary Street Brisbane

Now, the headline probably gives it away, but we have decided that my house probably isn’t the best choice to set up our drop-in service, this is, in no small part, due to the fact that it’s not in the CBD (and also because it’s my house).

This month our new service launches, so in-between fixing screens and seeing to smart phone emergencies, we’ve been overseeing the fit out of our new tech cave. This one towers 16 levels above Brisbane’s CBD, Suite 1613, Level 16, 200 Mary Street, Brisbane 4000, to be exact.

So, if you are busy in and out of meetings, but MUST have your phone fixed today, drop in, let us take care of it, and swing by when you’re ready to pick it up, we’re at your service.

What’s next?

I was tempted to put an exclamation mark after that question mark because it more clearly represents how I feel about the future. Look at what’s on the horizon, apart from an incredibly exciting new iPhone on the way (can you believe it’s been 10 years already), but with the companies fighting for market share or our money, the winners in the race will undoubtedly be us. And that little kid inside me finds that thought thrilling.

These past years have flown by so quickly, starting out simply as an iPhone repair business we began to branch out, as other companies rose to the challenge that Apple laid out. The Samsung Galaxy is an amazing phone, Google Pixel is a slick little device, and also another brand of servicing we launched very successfully.

Consumer tech is evolving so quickly, I can’t wait to share with you all the planned launches we have for many new devices still to come this year. It’s our business to keep up with what’s new and what’s popular, because we want to be your go to when you have a tech issue, or even just a tech question. Everyone at Screen Fixed is thrilled in the direction we’re heading in, for this year and beyond. Join us on the adventure and let us take care of all your repair needs.

In recent years our mobile phones have become much more than just handy devices for staying in touch via phone calls and text messages. They allow us stay on top of everything in our daily lives from checking our Inbox and replying to emails, to keeping an eye on our business, connecting with smart appliances and alarm service at home, monitoring our health and lots of other things too numerous to mention. Our smartphones have become our pocket companion, our trusted daily assistant with all its features and apps. It can be devastating when something happens to our device. It’s not just the price we paid for our iPhone, but the fact that it contains a lot of personal information and been customized to meet our needs. This is why it is vital to have a Sydney iPhone repair service that can be counted on in an emergency.

Cracked screens, they happen. 

The worst thing that can happen is to drop your iPhone, cracking the screen. The screen is the command centre for any smartphone and when it’s cracked the phone is totally useless. You not only can’t see what’s displayed on the screen, but you lose your ability to access or control your iPhone. The problem is, this is something that can happen to anyone, no matter how well protected your phone is. If you keep it in a flip case, odds are that the case will open during the fall and the phone will land on the screen, cracking it. Even glass screen protectors do not offer 100% protection, although they are popular since they do a fairly good job. The point is that your iPhone’s screen will always be prone to cracking simply because it’s made of glass.

iPhone Repair Services 

What can you do if your iPhone screen cracks? You’re going to have to find an Apple iPhone repair centre, maybe make an appointment online for the repair work, drive over there to drop off your phone, and do without it for how ever many days it will take them to handle the repair. Once your screen is replaced, you’ll have to drive back again to pick your phone up. What if you could get your iPhone fixed immediately without leaving home and waiting days for the repair? If you live in Sydney, Brisbane or Toowoomba, you have a very reputable iPhone repair service near you. All you have to do is give them a call and they will come to your location and fix your iPhone right there, on the spot. Yes, you heard me right! There is no need to get in your car and drive for who knows how long and wait days before returning to pick up your phone. Your iPhone can be repaired and back to full function in no time at all with this Sydney iPhone repair service, which is also available in Brisbane and Toowoomba.

iPhone 6S screen repair Sydney & Brisbane

So, if you somehow crack the screen on your iPhone 6S, no matter how it happens, just call their repair team. They offer on-demand iPhone repair services right to your door. It should only take them 30 minutes to repair your mobile device, not the entire day. In just a half hour you will have a fully functioning phone again! Are you wondering what types of iPhones they can fix? The repair team can fix any type of iPhone, although the iPhone 6 is the one they get the most calls about. Up to this point in time they have repaired more than 2,000 iPhone 6s, which is why this model is the one they are most familiar with. However, they are perfectly capable of fixing any iPhone, so if you have another model, just give them a call and they’ll get the job done in no time at all. Getting your screen fixed in Sydney is no longer a problem now that you know who to call for this emergency. Rather than going into a panic trying to figure out how you’re going to live without your phone for up to a week, give these guys a call and have them come over and fix it for you right away.

Certified iPhone technicians Sydney 

Aside from cracked screens, this team of technicians can solve just about anything. It’s just that cracked screens are the most common problem people call about. But the team in Sydney can take care of whatever else may be wrong. The lead technician there is Johnson and he is very experienced and also has had special training in repairing iPhones in particular. He’s done nothing but repair iPhones for the past 4 years, so he’s seen and fixed everything you can think of. For Johnson, repairing a cracked iPhone screen is something he can practically do in his sleep.

Fast iPhone screen repairs

If you have an iPhone emergency, they’ll travel up to 30 minutes from the Sydney CBD to reach you. If your problem is a cracked screen, it may reassure you to know that the team uses only premium quality glass iPhone screens in their repairs. Therefore, these iPhone screen repairs are the best there is. So, not only do they provide the most convenience, they will also use only top quality components when restoring your iPhone.

Making things even more convenient, you don’t have to pay in cash because the team accepts payment with Eftpos or Credit Cards. You will only be charged for the repairs made to your iPhone, and not the call out service. This means that using this service will not be any more expensive than if you used another similar service. You will only pay for the repairs, just like with anyone else, but you will enjoy the convenience of getting the repair done at your location by the most experienced iPhone repair professionals in this industry.

Repair service available in Brisbane, Sydney, Gold Coast and Toowoomba 

The Screen Fixed service was first launched in Brisbane, back in 2014. Since then, the business has expanded to Sydney and Toowoomba, where they have many happy clients.

So, for all you Samsung owners out there, you can be confident in knowing that iPhone screen repairs are not the only thing this team does, they can certainly repair your Samsung device as well.

There are also plans for an Apple MacBook and an Apple iMac screen repair service in the near future, which means there will be a need for even more technicians. These are great jobs for anyone with the right skills.

You would be part of a highly professional and successful team of skilled technicians. When the time comes, make your interest in becoming a technician known, and you may receive an offer from the team at Screen Fixed.

iOS-9-iPhone-6S

Apple has described iOS 9, much as Google has Android 6.0 Marshmallow, as an update that brings tweaks and refinements to improve the overall performance and usability of the operating system. Of course, there are some new features thrown in for good measure, and Apple has promised a smarter Siri, improved Maps and better multitasking.

Design and tweaks

Aesthetically, you won’t notice much new once iOS 9 is installed. It looks the same as iOS 8, albeit with a subtly prettier San Francisco font (as first seen on the Apple Watch) that replaces the traditional Helvetica seen on iOS devices.

Changes start to appear when you delve further into the OS. Notifications, for example, are now sorted chronologically, rather than being illogically grouped by app. As somebody who uses their iPhone a lot, this little change makes a big difference when it comes to catching up on missed emails and messages. I’m still disappointed that Notifications aren’t cleared when they are in apps, however, and Apple has yet to add an option to clear them all at once.

Multitasking has been given a makeover. A double-tap of the home button now shows your open apps in an elongated card view, not dissimilar to the multitasking view introduced in Android 5.0 Lollipop. This means you can better see what’s going on before choosing to jump into an app.

Another new feature makes it easier to switch back to a previous app, thanks to a small button that appears at the top left of the display.

Siri

Siri has many more strings to its bow in iOS 9. Sliding to the left-most menu reveals a list of ‘Siri Suggestions’ filled with your most recent contacts and apps, and headlines Siri thinks you might want to read. At the time of writing, Siri is recommending I read an article about Tony Abbott – so I think it still may need a little work.

That being said, it’s perhaps more intelligent than it gets credit for. Siri doesn’t just know that you’re a fan of Kingdom Rush and that it will be your go-to app. It registers your habits, learning, for example, that you call your mum every Saturday at 1pm, or that you check your emails every morning while commuting. One of our favourite features of iOS 9 is that plugging in headphones automatically fires up your music app of choice, be it Apple Music or Spotify.

Apps

Typically, Apple has given some of its own apps a lick of fresh paint in iOS 9. First up, Mail. If you get a phone call from an unknown number and that phone number is in your email, it will tell you who the call might be from. What’s more, if you use Apple’s Calendar app (I don’t), events will show up automatically.

Notes has been given a long-overdue overhaul as Apple sets its sights on the likes of Evernote. The app now supports formatting, photo insertion and handwriting, and you can switch between typing and drawing in seconds. It’s still no real contender for Evernote, but iCloud syncing.

Apple Maps has been given a major revamp in iOS 9. It’s now better at recommending local businesses, such as nearby restaurants, and has added public transport directions for a number of major cities.

Performance, battery life and security

Apple promises better battery life with iOS 9 but I haven’t noticed much of a difference. However, there is a new Low Power Mode which, until installing iOS 9, I didn’t realise how much I needed. Now, once you see the ‘red bar of death’, as I like to call it, switching on Low Power Mode provides enough juice for another three hours by turning off push notifications, dimming the screen and lessening the power used by the processor.

Apple has made some enhancements to the overall security credentials of iOS, adding a new six-digit passcode option and improved two-factor authentication.

In short

Truth is, most people upgrading to iOS 9 probably won’t notice much of a difference. But the small changes – be it the new font, improved Notifications or a battery-saving mode – will make a huge difference to many.

Is it worth upgrading? Yes. It’s by no means Apple’s most exciting iOS release, but it has given the overall usability of our iPhone 6 handset a much needed boost. Of course, those with an older device such as an iPhone 5 or iPad 2 may want to exercise more caution, but for those with a newer Apple device, there’s no question.

The good

Better multitasking, Siri improvements, Low Power mode, improved security, overall usability improvements, no major glitches.

The bad

Apple Maps still isn’t great, no option to clear all Notifications.

The ugly

Nothing.

iPhone-6s

Why is Apple winning the smartphone battle?

Apple has unveiled its 11th iPhone, the iPhone 6S. Earlier this year Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S6, which is the South Korean giant’s 9,986th smartphone.
Not really, but it feels like it is. The Galaxy S6 is just one part of Samsung’s long and wide-ranging attempt to dethrone the iPhone as the smartphone of choice for hundreds of millions of people, something that’s really not working.
At one point, the Galaxy S range of smartphones from Samsung looked like it could be a genuine challenger, the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 sold in (relatively) huge numbers, and it looked like Samsung was on the right track.
However, in the past couple of years, as Samsung has seen sales of the Galaxy S5 falter, it has sought to diversify in order to hold its position as the world’s biggest smartphone manufacturer.

So… Many… Phones

And so this year, alongside the Galaxy S6, the Galaxy S6 edge, the Galaxy Note 5, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy S6 active. Before the end of the year, we will likely see the Galaxy S6 mini, the Galaxy Note 5 Active and the Galaxy S6 mini active note edge+.

I’m not 100% about that last model, but you get my point. Samsung is making it increasingly difficult for users to decide which smartphone they should buy. In 2014 alone, Samsung released 56 smartphones, at current rates, it would take Apple 28 years to release the same number of new phones.
Samsung has said it is trying to cut down, and so far this year it has released “only” 21 smartphones, though if you include variants, that figure increases dramatically.

Slow and steady

On the other hand, Apple is following a much more restricted course. Everyone knows that every September brings a new iPhone, and while that might mean lower iPhone sales in the third quarter of every year as people hold off updating, it also means that consumers are not confused.

Add to this that update cycle where Apple refreshes the design of the iPhone every two years, while the alternate S update, which we just saw, improves upon an already excellent phone.
Apple gives users three basic choices – the 4.7-inch iPhone 6S, the 5.5-inch iPhone 6S Plus and the 4.5-inch iPhone 5S. While some may bemoan the lack of diversity, it means Apple can control the experience on the phones much more tightly.

The same but different

People know that the iPhone is a good phone. There’s little debating that, and Apple doesn’t want to upset that perception by launching something radically different.

Instead, it has taken the iPhone 6, which was universally praised by reviewers as well as customers, and improved it dramatically. It has made one of the best smartphone cameras even better, it has boosted performance with the A9 chip, it has added a unique and potentially very useful feature with 3D Touch. As Apple says, “The only thing that’s changed is everything.”

Samsung, on the other hand, changes the look and feel of its Galaxy S range pretty dramatically every year, adding and removing features at random and failing to provide a consistent experience for those looking to upgrade from a previous model. They may not look radically different at first glance, but pick them up and use them, and the subtle change of a button or sensor means learning all over again how the phone works.

A smart message

The issue isn’t about whether the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are good smartphones, they are, the issue is that Samsung simply does not communicate why they are great smartphones nearly as well as Apple does with the iPhone.
While Apple’s stagecraft at such events is typically superb, it is not immune to mistakes, as we saw with senior VP Eddy Cue’s embarrassing Apple Music presentation
The problem comes from the fact that Samsung is getting squeezed at both ends of the smartphone market. At the premium end, Apple is dominating while at the budget end of the market, where Samsung saw exponential growth in recent years, it is being surpassed by the Chinese smartphone makers who are offering better hardware at lower prices and are willing to undercut Samsung at every turn just to gain some market share.
Samsung needs to rethink its smartphone strategy, but it may already be too late to follow in Apple’s footsteps and offer customers a clear choice of the best technology the company has to offer in a small range of smartphones that will cover the majority of the market.
