Hello everybody,

Is the LCD and touchscreen assembly the same on the Wifi only version and on the 4G LTE version?

I believe it is.

I recently replaced the broken (shattered) screen in my Nexus 7 2013 LTE. I purchased a replacement screen from ebay for a little over $100. NOTE: The replacement is the lcd and digitizer. HOWEVER, the screen is attached (fused) to a plastic mount using very strong double sided adhesive tape. Opening up the device and getting everything out wasn't too hard, but getting the screen off the plastic mount was a huge pain. I ended up tearing the adhesive completely off the plastic and using super glue to adhere the new screen to the plastic. It's iffy at best, but I have it installed in my car now and I purchased another one for everyday use. Moral of the story: you may just want to buy a new one and sell the broken one on ebay or something.

Hope that helps.

I am getting the nexus 7 2012 led screen for around $40. Shall I but it? Will it be compatible with nexus 2013 LTE?

No, do not buy the 2012 screen for the 2013 model, I believe the screen size is a little different and also because the camera is in a different place

The resolution of the 2 screens are different. Not going to work. Even if it did, why would you even consider going from 1920x1200 to 1200x800?
