You can buy an iPhone 6S on eBay with a cracked screen but with a good  
enclosure, battery, and logic board and a ready-made replacement screen  
assembly (as he did) and "build" your own iPhone right in your living  
room, no need to go to China.

Looks like a near half-hour long video to obfuscate that he basically  
did a screen replacement, except for some reason he went to the trouble  
of purchasing the enclosure, logic board, and battery separately and  
assembling them with all those little screws rather than just buy them  
as a unit.

You can get all the same pieces individually on eBay if you really want  
to, also.

My wife dropped her iPhone last year and cracked the screen, so I ordered a
 generic screen from ebay.  It worked but the sensitivity of the screen was
n't like the original.  Sometimes she had to swipe two or more times, or ta
p more than once to get it to respond, but at least it worked.  FF 8 months
 later and the screen started developing lines and eventually only part of  
the screen was accessible. A week later it would turn fade completely to li
nes in about 20 seconds.

I've heard others complaining about replacement iPhone screens not being up
 to the original standards, so I guess a new screen is not a guaranteed per
manent fix.

I thought it was interesting because of the culture differences between West  
and China.
They have big markets trading in components and recycled electronics you  
don't tend to find in the West.

It wasn't actually about being able to make your own iphone.

It was definitely an interesting vid to watch through! Unfortunately the  
creators seem to not have been able to help themselves but give it a  
pretty click-bait title...;-)
