I cracked phone screen but it still works, should I get it fixed?
If you’re like me your cellphone probably has a cracked phone screen but it’s still working. It seems every phone I own the screen eventually cracks. I used to get it fixed right away if I had the money but sometimes I never bothered. Nowadays I wait until the phone stops working even if I can afford to fix it. I think the best thing to do is keep a second phone handy just in case.
Recently I had to go on a business trip and had cracked phone screen so I took a chance and didn’t fix it. This was a bad decision because the first day into my trip it stopped working all together. I couldn’t find a place that would fix it so I missed a couple of really important calls. From this point on if my cellphone screen is cracked and I have to leave town I’m going to fix it first.
What do you do when you cracked phone screen?
My friend said he always gets his phone fixed as soon as possible. One time he used his phone for a while with a broken screen only to get it wet. When he tried to get it fixed the shop couldn’t get it to turn on again and he lost the use of the phone. This was a real bummer because he didn’t back it up and he lost all of his data. This is probably my biggest fear with my cellphone, losing my data.
I guess there is no definite answer how long a cracked screen will keep working. It could work for a day or weeks, even months before it stops working. I keep my data backed up regularly so I can gamble a little if my screen is broken.
I guess if the cost to fix my broken screen is cheap enough than fixing right away is the smarted choice. I try to keep a case on it these days and that really helps.
Why does it cost so much to fix my iPad cracked screen?
My iPad screen cracked and I want to get it fixed. I brought to my local repair store that fixed my sons iPad cracked screen last month. When they told how much it would cost I almost lost it. It was more than double my sons iPad cracked screen repair. When I asked why the tech told me that not every iPad is the same and it’s important to understand the difference.
Identify your iPad model
The iPad has been the tablet of choice for many people since its first introduction. The iPad was introduced and made its debut in April 2010. Since the original announcement, there have been 5 additional iPad generations, a new “Mini” series of 7.9-inch iPad tablets, and most recently, a 12.9-inch iPad “Pro” and its smaller 11-inch and 10.5-inch counterpart. The biggest difference between all of the iPad models is how the screen is designed. The first five generations used the same screen assembly design. The same can be said about the first three generations of the Mini. All of these iPad screen assemblies had separate glass and LCD’s. The iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 4 and all of the iPad Pro’s use fused glass and LCD screen assembly. This may sound like no big deal but when it comes to repair it makes a world of difference
How much cost to fix a iPad cracked screen?
The LCD is the part of the screen that shows the picture, just like a TV or Monitor. It’s the most expensive part of any screen assembly. When the front glass is cracked on an iPad that has separate parts, it’s an inexpensive repair. But when the parts are fused together it becomes more expensive because both need to be replaced. So I found out why my iPad Air 2 cracked screen costs twice as much to repair than my son’s iPad Air. The difference between the two was how the screen assembly was constructed. Even though my LCD was not broken, it had to be replaced. My wife and I agreed to make sure we let the kids only use the iPad that has separate glass and LCD. Because even if it’s in a case they still find a way to crack the iPad screen.
