Are SBE Any Good?
The Story... I live in the UK
I started to get the dreaded black irregular shaped dots on my photos, A known issue
Sent it to SBE for repair, it took over THREE weeks to come back to me.
On examining the phone it had dust particles and a strand of hair over the Camera lens...
Phoned Sony support who advised me to send it back, Gave me a new repair number at the same time
I didn't send it back straight away as i was reluctant to be without the phone again for such a long time
Alas after several weeks the phone started to not be able to lock on to GPS signals and would take up to 20 mins to find one
always used to lock on in a minute or so in the same area... Also Killed my 32Gb Micro Sd card unable to read or format it anymore
Caught in a torrential downpour whilst using the phone, on arriving home noticed condensation in Camera lens
Sent back to SBE who amazingly repaired the phone in just over a week, Replacing the camera.
On receiving the phone and checking all was well i noticed that there was a Red Dot in the headphone socket
Not there when i sent it back to SBE for repair, and yes all flaps where closed securely
Immediately got in touch with sony support who advised me to send the phone back
So without even switching it on it has now gone back for the THIRD time
I have this niggling feeling that the back glass was possibly not glued properly after the first repair...
