need some help or advise.

Hi guys,

I have a iphone 7+ matt black and the rear of the phone has lots of scratches.

Anyone knows if theres any shop that can replace the rear only and maintain the waterproof of the phone?

Sorry for the bad english but hope you guys understands what i'm talking about.

Thank you

Just buy a skin and paste over it, cost cheaper. Or simply just buy a ultra thin casing.

In addition to the above comments, your best bet is doing it at the Apple Store as the rear housing is not just a piece like that. It has all the circuit boards, sensors, camera and battery assembly attached to it and doing it at a 3rd party shop is not going to be safe.

But do take note that it's going to cost you a bit.

if you want to repair iphone in singapore, there are only 3 places to go.

1) Apple Orchard.
2) A.lab.
3) QCD.

Other than these 3, no thanks.

Still under warranty ?
Bring back to Apple and fake something spoilt and get a refurbished set.

But bear in mind that. If ur scratches is very very bad . They will still reject to repair even if your device is still under warranty
