There’s no denying the fact that the iPhone X is a very expensive smartphone. After all, it retails from a whopping RM5,149 in Malaysia. Well, if you’re planning to get one, you may want to be extra careful with the device: fixing a broken iPhone X display will set you back $279 – that’s about RM1,180.
Of course, this is how much it costs to fix the iPhone X’s display in the US, though we reckon it will cost approximately the same (or even higher) here. Nonetheless, $279 is only to fix a broken display – other kinds of damages to the iPhone X will set you back a hefty $549 (approximately RM2,325).
Considering the fact that the iPhone X is Apple’s most expensive smartphone yet, these costly repair costs are not exactly surprising. Let’s take the phone’s display as an example: it’s manufactured by Samsung, and it is the only company that can supply these displays to Apple. Because of this, we imagine they do not come cheap.
If you’re thinking of getting an iPhone X, it may be a good idea to get a form of protection plan for the device. Machines, for one, offers such a service, which provides accidental damage coverage as well as two years worth of warranty.
However, it remains to be seen just how much Machines will charge for a protection plan for the iPhone X; the retailer is currently charging RM599 for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus’ protection plan.
