Can't believe it's finally happened. (Cracked Screen)


Recommended Posts

I'm baa-aaack. (After a stay in hospital (AGAIN.))🥵

So I've finally gone and cracked my screen 😢. Despite the phone being in a case when I dropped it the darn thing bounced out of the case when it hit the floor and the top left corner hit the concrete. The crack is a small star crack that just covers the none viewable black border. I've put some clear nail varnish over it for now (to stop any splinters breaking out) and I've got 2 screen protectors on order that should help stop it from getting bigger. I've looked on Ali Express but the screens are no longer available (bummer 😢)

I have to replace mine too. I already have the screen, just haven't come around to start fiddling with a hairdryer and glue 😒. Fortunately I own a spare frame which I can use. I'll try to take a couple of pictures of the process. Maybe this weekend.

A hairdryer may not be the best solution because of the excessive air flow and uncontrolled temperature.
A proper heat gun would be a much better tool anyway.

Also, ensure to use a proper (not too strong but suitable) glue, I think something has arrived together with the screen which should be good.

I'm not so worried about that hairdryer. The spare is a brand new screen FxTec sent me to replace a faulty screen. But this one has even more issues. Heating it up to loosten the LCD wouldn't cause any additional damage. I'm hoping replacing just the LCD will suffice. And you are correct, some glue was provided.
