1. I have heard about this repair kit but haven’t had any personal experience with it. I’m so glad you shared this DIY just in case I need it in the future, I’ll be saving this! I’m sure it will help a lot of people.

    • I also wanted to highlight the fact that we should try to do it ourselves before spending money on getting things fixed or buying them new. There will be times when we can’t do it ourselves, but we should at least try to do it at first.

  2. I think it’s really awesome that you did it yourself and saved money at the same time! I don’t even dare to put the screen protector myself because there will always be bubbles and it bugs me a lot 😛

    • The annoying bubbles was the main reason I didn’t have a screen protector before, but after a few ruined screen protectors I’ve been able to do it without bubbles.

  3. I have seen quite a few people do the repairs themselves. I think it is a viable solution. Not only do you learn how to repair your screen, but you also save good money. Nice work!

  4. Good job! Aren’t youtube videos wonderful? Gives you confidence to fix the next thing. My daughter took her phone in to get fixed after she dropped it in an ice bucket and didn’t have any rice she could put it in. I think the charged $170 or something ridiculous and it’s still not completely functional! She’s always losing or breaking her phones! gah!

  5. Wow! I am impressed with you for doing this! We are DIY people, but for some reason, electronic repairs like this freak me out. My intern has a phone that looks like yours, though, and I am going to encourage her to DIY like you. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Hey Aldo, it’s awesome that you were able to fix the phone yourself. To tell the truth, I’ve thrown away phones because they had a cracked screen…I know phroogies go ahead and start with the “You made the wrong decision”. Anyway, spending $50 compared to $125 is always great in my book!

  7. Great job on the repair! I haven’t needed to fix my phone or iPad, but I always put them in an Otterbox the day I buy them. However, I have repaired my laptop, replacing the screen and rebuilding the power supply. I also change oil on the car, rotate the tires, simple stuff like that. If you are willing to take a chance, and have access to YouTube, you can generally save money! 🙂

  8. Great job, but it is technical work and due to a minor mistake you suffered a big loss. Your mistake increase your phone problem (Like damage of any other part of phone due to non-repairing experience and skill.) and increase repairing cost. This incident happened with me and I bear double charges.

  9. Great job on the self fix! Believe it or not, the owner and founder of our company (iDropped) started a franchise business based completely on teaching himself how to fix phones. Once he got really good at it, he opened his first location and the rest is history. Maybe you’ll inspire others to do the same!

  10. Hi Aldo,
    Great job indeed. 🙂

    I love your technique to repair phone screen. It’s your skill and passionate that you have done it. Reading this article on damaged screen replacement I just couldn’t hold myself to tweet this on twitter to my follower.

    Without experience it is not possible to repair it but you have done it without having any special kit for repairing this phone. Awesome work. Give it up! 🙂

    I appreciate your wonderful work. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  11. Hii,

    Thank you for sharing with us. You won’t believe my phone was cracked 10 times and still working, but the repairing a broken screen glass can be very expensive project to do. Finding a dealer that will change the glass is not a problem, but the price they charge is just really too much for the work and the spare parts.
