Bought on my trip to Hong Kong at the airport. That was on January of 2018. Used it well, started with glass screen protector and full body protector. I was so happy about its water resistance and i took it for a quick dive under water (salt water).
Came and and the Face ID was messed up and told me to get it repaired. So I let it sit but it kept being weird. I brought it home, took the screen off and cleaned the board with ALCOHOL.
I got it to turn on but it would reboot, stay on for a few and mute, volume switch did not work. Then the upper middle part of the screen would not work with the touch (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 key areas). I also did not have the needed screw driver and ended up rounding some of the screws to the haptic feedback and the charge port screws. They were never removed and should be able to be removed with the appropriate screw driver.
So I did not have any equipment to test it any further so I sent it in for a repair. At the repair shop, this is what they told me.
They took the two parts of the motherboard apart and said they will probably be able to fix it. But later called and they said they could not.They said there must be a short somewhere and could not find the location. I concluded that I wasted my time with those "self claimed expert" repair center. IF you have any questions, please feel free to let me know. If you can get it fixed, there is nothing stopping you from using it. This ships from South Korea.
