Hi just dropped my xperia z from about 5 foot height onto pavement and the screen is not broken but it isnt responding to any touch.

Is there any chance it can be fixed without fitting a new screen?

just asked the guy who fixes my phones he said bring it in and ill see, said it could be digitizer which if it is then im ****ed.

had enough of this, broke the screen 2 months ago and spent 150 fixing it and 20 for a broken sensor.

Im confused here, the phone guy said the digitizer is built in with the screen but im checking on ebay and theyre selling a seperate digitizer.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/5-Touch-Sc...item4d1637f583

So if the screen is ok and digitizer broken would installing a new one fix it?

Let me know please, confused and angry,

Apparently the screen and digitiser are glued together, making it extremely likely that one or the other will break when attempting to separate them.
See this guide on replacing the touchscreen - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2417650

Hi I'm trying to find a case that will protect my screen something like a thin plastic sheet my mate has such a cover for his iPhone 5.

Or is there a thick screen protector that someone can recommend?
