    Well this just cost me hundreds. My iPhone is now dead because I can’t get a pentalobe screwdriver fast enough to take the battery out and bam… my phone is dead. The power button was the first thing to go after a couple quite small drops of water reached the top of my phone. Then all sorts of problems. The next step in saving my phone? Take the battery out, duh! But wait, Apple doesn’t want me to save my phone. They claim that you should choose them because yu can use your old phone with new software but they design their phones to have a very short lifespan and hardly any means of repair. Well it’s only hurting them now, as Samsung has far superior phones and lets face it, Apple app’s are just junk. I want Google’s app base now! Goodbye forever, CrApple!

      Hey Jody,

      Sorry to hear of your iPhone’s woes! I’m now on my second Samsung Galaxy phone and the things are like tanks, I’ve abused and battered mine so many times but somehow it still keeps on ticking (I even bricked my first one doing a custom ROM upload for fun and it still came back to life a day later).

      Good luck with whatever device you get next!
