Damaged Screen - Nokia 820

Damaged Screen - Nokia 820

PostPosted by opium » Tue Jul 30, 2013 11:27 am

My brother has a Nokia Lumia 820 and cracked his screen. O2 repairs will ask for at least £100 to fix this so was just wondering how easy you reckon this would be for me to buy a screen an fix?

I can replace laptop components easily enough but have never tried doing any work on a handset.

I've taken many phones apart over the years and they are all pretty straightforward. Just take your time and be careful with the ribbon connectors which can be easily damaged.
There are usually disassembly guides on you tube to help.

Yeah - I always try to explain to customers the reason the repair centre quote is more is the same as why getting your car fixed from the dealer is more expensive because it will go back to warranty condition whereas a third party mechanic won't.

But still...

I'm interested to try it and my little brother can't afford the full cost repair.
