Non-CPO Refurbished iPhone - 6 Months Later...
|Six months later...|
Remember the iPhone6 I told you about in this post? Well… it's been about 6 months, and I've decided to part ways with it. In the last week, I've experienced something strange: ghost touch.
What's ghost touch? Ghost touch is a term when your touchscreen detects touches when you don't, as if there's a ghost playing with your phone. This is very annoying, as this not only renders your phone unusable, but also performs unwanted actions in your phone, like calling someone, messaging random people, etc.
At first I thought it was a software bug. During the first times, it rarely happens, and disappears after locking and unlocking the phone. As time goes, it becomes more and more prominent, that even a restart couldn't fix it. I've tried restoring it, starting anew, delete my phone backup, and it still doesn't work.
So, what did I do? Find out after the break.
Decision To Sell
|Selling the iPhone was the only viable option.|
Yes, it's expensive, and there's no warranty, meaning that I'll have to shell out additional cash should the problem rise again. Taking it to an authorized service center wasn't an option, either, as they will charge more for the repair, if they didn't refuse to take it.
So, I decided to sell it. I sold it to a shop, since it still has warranty, and I'm pretty certain that shops like them have better connection and experiences dealing with that kind of problem. I got a pretty decent amount of dough, which eases the pain in my heart for a bit.

Nevertheless, I currently switch my phone to Infinix Zero 4 Plus, another Android phone, which I am going to review soon. All this while I'm saving up to buy a brand new iPhone 8. Yes, I can't wait to give iPhone another try, properly this time.
Why not iPhone X? Well, the reason is simple: price. Also, I'm somehow not impressed with the new flagship's design, which omits the iconic home button and touch ID. Yes, we have to embrace change, but I'm not ready to do that just yet.
Well, I guess that's all, Folks. The moral of the story is, avoid buying non-CPO refurbished iPhones at all costs, as they seem to be more trouble-prone than usual, and have shorter lifespan. Finally, as usual, thanks for visiting, and I'm looking forward to your next visit! :D
