    Hello

    I've dropped my iPhone 4S onto my wooden floor a couple times. Thankfully it survived but there are a couple of chips in the edge of both the front and rear glass.

    I was looking for genuine Apple replacement parts but I don't really trust eBay and iFixIt seems very expensive. Can anybody recommend alternatives?

    Thanks.

    The Apple Store... can't get more genuine, although the price will easily be the highest.

    iFixit is the best option in my opinion.

    You should be careful though, is it really worth all the work to fix a few chips in the phone? It is way harder then it seems to unassemble the phone and replace the screen (REALLLLY difficult).

    applepartsstore.com is a good place to start. They usually have OEM parts for most models of iPhones except for maybe the original.
