Is this worth it?

Have found an iPhone X on eBay for £130, it is water damaged, so it won’t turn on. Is it worth attempting to repair it? Have repaired many phones before, but only done one water damage repair which was on a 6s and was successful. I did it by using the isopropyl alcohol and toothbrush method on the motherboard.

Is it worth the risk? Will I be able to sell it on for the same amount easily if I fail to repair it? Will it be hard? I have done logic board swaps etc on all the other iPhones but have never worked on the X.

Thanks!

Nope. Note that the logic board is comprised of two boards sandwiched together with 100+ individual solder balls around the edges of the board to connect them.

Removing these for liquid damage repair is going to be a nightmare.

@benjamen50 is it possible to do this repair without unsoldering anything?

Not worth the gamble, it's not possible to know how much water went in and where before you buy and receive the phone.

Some liquid would have gotten between the two boards making it impossible for repair unless they are removed with soldering.

That in and of itself is one of the hardest phones to work on in terms of microsoldering.

@benjamen50 This is even over what I'm willing to gamble with. Non layered board? If I can remove the shields clean sure but if not I may pass.

Layered boards is a hard pass for me.

Only if you get it cheap and know how to do board level work. Water damage is NOT for novices but is attainable by good DIYers. A screen? Sure; buy it. The issue is iPhone X water damage isn't DIYer friendly due to the board design.

As a general rule DO NOT buy water damaged phones unless you’re experienced with cleaning it and can handle the work needed to do the job, and all of the surprise failures like bad charge ports. This is why these are only really for experienced techs who buy low and sell high or keep it for their own use.

Most people think you can get a cheap phone but fail to see that you're gambling because you don't know if it's been turned on and fried by a previous tech or the old owner - not to mention it's nearly guaranteed to be iCloud locked. In addition to that if you don't know how to spot a potential rice phone there's a chance you'll be stuck with one and find out that it's probably corroded so badly you can't save it.
