NOTE: I am in no way affiliated with ITSTEK or Amazon. It has taken me so long to find a good replacement charging port for the N7000 I wanted to share this with my fellow N7000 users on XDA.
100% ORIGINAL BRAND NEW Samsung N7000 Galaxy Note 1 & I9220 Charging Connector- micro port Flex & Mic, mobile phone repair part replacement, Samsung part no: GH59-11676A - Why buy copy or refurbished Parts and risk damaging your treasured & such expensive handset, Only From ITSTEK The UK`S Original Parts Specialist.
This is my third replacement Charging Connector and the only one that looks exactly like the original Samsung part and works perfectly.
No signal loss, no excessive battery drain, mic issues, etc.
I paid £18.95, which is cheaper than the Samsung Service centre were quoting me (£35).
I asked a question about whether this was an OEM part or not on Amazon and got lots of helpful replies.
The basic gist of the answers was that if you bought it from ITSTEK it works perfectly, buying from anywhere else was a bit of a risk and in most cases was a copy that suffered from the normal copy issues.
The answer is in the product name:
100% ORIGINAL BRAND NEW ..................... Only From ITSTEK The UK`S Original Parts Specialist.
So why take the risk of ordering from a different seller for a couple of quid saving and end up with a dud.
I am sure the previous two replacements I had purchased were copies.
They both cost much less than a tenner.
They had signal problems and didn't quite look exactly the same as the Samsung original.
The two sets of raised connectors were silvery in colour, not golden as on the original Samsung part.
The text on the board was close to the original, but not exactly the same, missing the production date etc.
Hope this helps some N7000 users out there, it has taken me six months in total to replace my broken Samsung part with a good quality, fully working replacement.
I was so impressed I actually wrote a product review on Amazon.
NOTE: ITSTEK are based in the UK but can ship internationally (according to their blurb on the Amazon site).
