I'll be honest, I am technically inclined and it still made me nervous to take my phone apart even with those handy instructions: [...]
It took me a couple of hours but I was able to take it apart, replace the screen and put it back together. Words of advice:
. If you're all thumbs, have someone else do it.
. Make sure to disconnect ALL ribbon cables before removing the motherboard. Be especially mindful of the small ribbon cable going through the track-pad's hole.
. You will spend most of your time removing the glued-on shattered glass from the frame so you'll want to have a waste basket near by and possibly a small vacuum.
I rated the product 4 out of 5 stars because of the lack of adhesive to hold the screen in place. Clear double sided tape works fine but I still feel it should be included.
Nevertheless my phone works flawlessly and looks like out of the box for $35 and a couple of hours of work instead of $600.
What more can I ask for?
- Proper tools
- Krazy Glue
- An exacto knife
Getting to the screen and its housing isn't bad; you can find a YouTube video showing this. Getting the dang glass off is another story - it's literally just attached with adhesive foam. You're going to need to very, very slowly separate the glass from the adhesive, scraping off the parts very carefully so you don't damage button electronics, and very carefully apply *just enough* Krazy Glue or similar adhesive.
Alternatively, you can buy the touch-screen with the housing, which I believe means no messing around, but the ones I've seen online are $100+
In other words - if you're looking at this product, know that it is not for the timid to do this replacement. However, the part was perfect, original Verizon / Droid part, and the seller did a great job with packaging and shipping immediately.
This review is NOT an endorsement. Repair your phone at your OWN RISK.
The reason I gave it a 3 star review is because this does not include the sticky glue stuff you need to hold this touch screen replacement onto the front plastic piece. This is also something ALL DIY repair guides fail to mention.
Weigh the cost of the replacement screen with filing insurance, and be aware what all has to be done.
I ordered the product because I had cracked my screen. Okay, maybe not cracked - more like when you're watching an action movie and the guy lands on the car windshield - the whole shattered but in one piece look. Yeah, that's more like it. Shockingly the phone still worked great when I wasn't picking little pieces of glass out of my thumb.
Product was shipped and delivered on time, except I did not have the pry tool in the box. Rather than deal with waiting on shipping me a small stick of plastic I made due with screwdrivers. Heck, you broke the screen, at this point it's an experiment!
Anyway I went to work on the phone. The phone has to be completely taken down to the screen...which while isn't a problem for me - may be for you. You'll need the screwdrivers to fit the screws, and probably a video or two on what all to do.
Once the phones taken apart the existing screen will need to be ripped off the housing of the phone. It seems to have been held in by very thin double sided felt adhesive. This is ruined for the most part on removal. You will need to improvise. It wasn't fun.
The replacement screen/digitizer is not an exact matchup to the OEM considering the OEM had an extra ribbon cable that this one didn't seem to use. (If i'm losing any functionality i'm not aware of it.)
Once it's all put back in and replaced it looks great and appears to be an exact fit.
I have had frequent, but not dealbreaking, issues. The screen seems overly sensitive to water or dirty fingers. All i have to do is wipe the screen clean and it fixes it. Aside from install I can't complain too much, it did save me the cost of buying a new phone.
In summary, research and have your tools/supplies ready.
As promised, I am updating now that I have received the digitizer + housing. It appears to be an original OEM item. Highly recommend this over digitizer alone.
