The Difference Between A Cracked Screen & Broken LCD Screen
Posted: Jul 21 2014
If your screen has been damaged, it's sometimes hard to determine the extent of the damage. Below we have explained the difference between a damaged front screen and a broken LCD screen.
Front Screen - the glass screen is there to protect your LCD screen and to enhance your viewing pleasure.
LCD Screen - The LCD screen is a vital part of the device and is in place to supply the touch response function and improve the display features.
Front Screen Repair Only - If you have cracked your front screen but everything is still functioning on the device and it lights up then you will only require a front screen repair.
LCD Screen Repair - If your device is not lighting up and is not functioning properly this is a huge indication you will require an LCD screen replacement / repaired. Other signs include black or blurred spots, discoloured areas of your screen or the screen has black/dim areas.
What is a digitizer?
The digitizer on the mobile phone is a layer above the LCD screen that senses the users touch.
It's important that you get a cracked screen repaired straight away. Because eventually this could get worse very quickly and then lead to more damage, that will add to the overall cost of the repair.
