Did your iPhone just decide to take a its own life after years of abuse and overuse under your tormenting dictatorship? If it’s true, and your iPhone has decided to leap off the table and crack its head, or drown in a sink or swimming pool, then you might be looking for a good place to get it fixed. Whilst there are tons of repair shops out there in the market, not all of them are particularly reputable and some in fact, are shady in a sense that they could possibly be switching out your phone parts for fakes and even, outsourcing the job to another engineer to do it for you. Nevertheless, the 3 repair shops listed here, have built up a solid reputation and have stood the test of time. So if you need an iPhone doctor, consider them.
If you are looking for a place to fix your smartphone, iRepair might just be the best shop to head to. Situated right on Prinsep Street, iRepair is a robust smartphone repair shop that covers a huge range of devices and technical issues.
In terms of price, iRepair, has one of the lowest prices in the market. However, that’s not all that iRepair offers to win you over. iRepair’s greatest advantage is security and trust. It is the only CASETrust certified shop in Singapore, which is one accreditation that is incredibly hard to get. So if trust is what you are looking for, iRepair is your premium choice.
The fact that it has a Face2Face repair service allows you to see your smartphone being repaired by the engineers using sophisticated equipment right at the shop and when you leave your smartphone with them, you have to produce your identification card for verification which will also be required when you return to collect your device. Cracked screen repairs can be done under an hour and if you have severe motherboard damages, you might have to leave your smartphone with them overnight.

This shop is a smaller-sized one that focuses on targeting customers with a low budget. Students can even get $5 off their repairs if you flash your student card.
BreakFixNow also covers most smartphone brands you can find in Singapore, but it specialises in Gorilla Glass replacement for iPhones, which not many shops are capable of.
You can choose to watch your phone get fixed too, within a 2m radius of the person fixing it if you have any trust issues. All the LCD screens and parts are guaranteed to be OEM for quality control purposes and you get a 3-month warranty period for BreakFixNow.
Usually, simple procedures like fixing a cracked screen takes you around 15-20 minutes, but the repair may take 1-5 days if the issue is severe.

iPhix is a shop that relies on its reputation for using original parts to repair its products. They claim to use only original parts to repair your smartphone and would rather not conduct the repair, than use unreliable parts. iPhix’s engineers are precise to the point where they use screw discipline, to ensure that every single component in your device is screwed in the right way (apparently there are tons of screws that can be swapped and replaced irresponsibly). All products are covered with a 90-day warranty as well.
Their shop is also a rather hospitable one, with comfy couches to chill on whilst you wait for your smartphone to be worked on and at the same time, enjoy some canned drinks.
The only downside is the slightly heftier price point of their repairs.
