How do I know if I need the LCD repair or not?
Most phones and tablets made today have bonded glass and LCD units. Therefore even if the glass is cracked but the LCD is working perfectly, it will normally require a full glass and LCD replacement unit. If we can replace just the glass such as in an iPad then we will display the glass only price, but if you do not see a glass only option then it will be because its a bonded unit.
Some companies will offer to do glass only replacement on units such as Samsung or Apple phones. We do not advise this as they are made by the manufacturer to be bonded and not to be split. Utilising a service like this can cause future issues with touch screen and a “burning” effect on the LCD which will mean you will have to have the full unit replaced anyway. We replace screens the way the manufacturer themselves would.
Still not sure? Send a picture of the current condition of the phone while it is powered on to email@example.com and we will do our best to diagnose it.
