We take a visit to the Shenzhen SEG Plaza Communications Market. The biggest electronics market dedicated to mobile, cellular and communications industry. There are 3 floors selling everything from internal PCB boards of mobile phones to accessories that will make your phone do things you won’t believe.
First off you need take a train from Hong Kong and then get off at the Hong Kong-China border at Lo Wu station. Once you go pass immigration, head over to the Shenzhen Metro – Entrance A where you’ll find the Line 1 (Luobao). Stay on the same line until you reach Huaqiang Road station, which is only 5 stops away. When you exit the metro … look for the SEG Plaza or SEG Electronic Market.
The gang gets cosy and agrees to have everyone (5 of us) to sit on the train seat designed for 4 (space saving!). Half way through the journey, Loy gets a little hungry … so decides to get himself a curry~! Yes, China do have curry … fake or not! Hahaha. After a decent meal, he then decides to become Rambo and try some automatic rifles for size.
Along Huaqing North/Road, there’s also a massive International LED trading centre, as well as the Shenzhen SEG Communications Market … and that’s where we’re heading!
There are hundreds of tools, designed specifically for dismantling your iPhone (and other brands too). You’ll find moulds made from aluminium or plastic, screw drivers, clamps, suction cups, and even a mini digital microscope!
There are hundreds of shops for both trade and walk-in customers. If you want to buy in bulk … this is the place to come! Wing bought a replacement straps for your Apple Watch … less than USD $5. I bought an iPhone 5 clamp with weather-proof case for USD $2.
If you want any spare part for your mobile phone … this place WILL have it. Replacement batteries, home buttons, internal PCB boards, LCD screens, casing and more …
