I just wanted to share my impressions with you as I read that it's not easy to replace the screen.
Some days ago i dropped my phone and the glass broke. I ordered a screen at chinapadmall.com and replaced it this weekend without any issues.
The phone consists of 3 big parts:
- The screen
- the mainboard (2 small ones connected with a wire)
- the metal frame everything is mounted to
These tree are easy to separate with a very small screwdriver. Take care of any glued or clipped parts during disassembly!!
The back of the damaged screen contained 3 parts I had to keep: The speaker and a small rubber part left beside it that is needed for the proximity sensor to work. So remove and replace them. The third part is a cable band. It's located under the big black sticker in your battery tray. Peel it of carefully and replace it, too.
After putting together all 6 parts again, I turned on the phone and everything worked like a charm...
Beside the quite expensive replacement screen it's an easy job to do. It took me only about one hour...
So everybody feel free to send me your phone (incl. screen and I will replace it
) If I get the chance to replace one more screen I will take some photos...
