Motorola and iFixit team up to let you repair your Moto phone easily

24 October 2018
As of now, only kits for battery and screen replacement are available.

Sort by:

  • Best Tools Wanted

Every phone manufacturer should sell an official tool kit to fully disassemble and reassemble their phone. Simply buying a generic tool kit on ebay, you don't know if they are the best tools available for the job...probably not.

Whackcar, 24 Oct 2018Why fix your phone yourself when you can just take your iPhones ... morenot always so simple. When you look at the more expensive devices that are also IP68 it can be difficult. You need specialized heating equipment to separate the parts safely and without damaging the internal component. The iFixit DIY solutions mean you will risk the components and the safety of the battery inside. Devices are very different to what they were a few years ago and far more complicated, certainly that the products coming from Motorola. Also, is it not better to improve product quality as a selling point rather than make easily self repairable.

iPhone screen repair pricing..............
The following screen repair prices apply if:

You need to replace your screen due to accidental damage or mishandling. Accidental damage isn't covered by the Apple warranty. Woohaaaa
Your iPhone screen gets broken while it's still under warranty and you don't have AppleCare+ coverage. Wohaaaaa
Your screen stops working and your iPhone isn't covered by the Apple warranty, consumer law, or AppleCare+. Wooohaaaa
If your iPhone has additional damage that's not limited to the screen, see the "Other damage" fees. Hahahahaha Pay the expensive iPhone plus the price of a mid-range one yearly or pray LUL

iPhone model Screen repair only Other damage
iPhone XS Max $ 329 $ 599
iPhone XS $ 279 $ 549
iPhone XR $ 199 $ 399

Imagine Apple doing this. Not even in a another dimension

A step in the right direction away from the planned obsolescence.

It would be better if standard tools could be used. But at the least these devices CAN be repaired by an end user with some technical skills. So praise to Moto for that.

Way to go Moto :-)

They're not a leading company, but this is good

Don't get me wrong, your comments are generally good.

Hahaha.....they are taking a jab at Apple. See Apple, that's how you treat your customers. They aren't as dumb as you think.

This is great. I support this #RightToRepair campaign. I am sure Zack from JerryRigEverything will too.

In the earlier days, everything used to be so much simpler. The best example is that of the Samsung Galaxy S5, which in 2014 had IP67 protection, yet had a removable battery. Replacing it cost only around US $ 10.

These days replacing a sealed-in battery cost much, much more, not to mention you lose the water-resistant IP rating too.

The S5 also came with a removable back, that had screws to easily fix or repair any component DIY. But, thanks to Apple and the like, who kept on bashing Samsung, they finally moved to sealed-in design from the S6 onwards.

I miss those old days. Hopefully, the Right To Repair campaign will catch on.

Why fix your phone yourself when you can just take your iPhones to the Apple Store and they're replace it for $500... /sarcasm

On a relevant note. Every manufacturer should launch such tools at cheap prices to help users fix their phones themselves. It is far cheaper and not that difficult to do.
