I dropped my LG yesterday and its cracked. LCD is working. Touchscreen isn't. I want to replace it myself. Do I need to buy incl the LCD, or just the glass?




Is this enough?http://m.ebay.nl/itm/221382396949?nav=SEARCH

no you need to buy the one that includes the lcd, it's practically impossible to replace only the digitizer alone and you will see this when you replace your screen I should know because I've done so already (bought only digitizer then replacing broke lcd and had to buy lcd+digitizer)

Is it easy to DIY?
I'm debating whether I should send my unit to LG for replacement, which probably costs $150-$200 or buy the lcd+digitizer on the market (costs around $130-$140 I believe) and do it at home. Don't know if it worth the risk.

Well if you want to know the process there are video tutorial on YouTube that you can watch and if it looks like you can do it yourself then go for it, I did it myself the first time and it wasn't difficult but I have experience in doing this from previous devices

Hey @XxZombiePikachu

I have also cracked my screen - single crack, but digitizer stopped working in lower half of the screen (where crack is).

I have a question WHICH lcd/digitizer/glass did you buy (from whom), and is the LCD the same quality as the original?

For me it is very important to have OEM LG screen - I love the G2 screen and don't want to buy some Chinese knock-off.

Is the brightness same as original???

Please tell. Thanks!

well I had bought it on ebay from power_gamer_usa1, it turned out to be just like original it felt/looked the same and brightness functioned like it should(make sure you buy lcd+digitizer together I know you can buy separate digitizer but it is not worth it the replacement process is far too difficult and you will end up breaking the original lcd and will need to buy another replacement take my word because this was my mistake and I have a lot of experience it taking apart electronics), but of course when buying from ebay you have to be careful and I had just bought one that had original logos/mentioned it was oem and took a risk; have been satisfied with it since then(I bought in December 2013)
