What to do if you crack your tablet screen?
There are so many different types of tablets on the market these days and finding a place that can fix them can be daunting. The most common tablet screen repair requires fixing the glass screen. When people refer to a broken “screen” it usually consists of just the glass digitize screen , which controls the touch function but it could also include the LCD which shows the picture.
The majority of tablet screen repairs fix the glass digitize screen only. Sometimes the LCD also needs to be replaced which will make the repair more expensive. Let’s take a look at some common types of tablet screen repairs on the market.
The Apple iPad is probably the most common type of tablet screen repair most repair shops see. There are close to 10 different models of iPads on the market today and replacing the glass screen and LCD can range from being affordable to it being cheaper to replace the tablet. For example, the iPad mini has the glass and LCD separate so if the glass is cracked and you can still see the picture all you need to fix is the glass or digitizer screen.

In contrast, the iPad Air 2 has a screen assembly which means the glass digitize screen and the LCD are fused together, if one or the other is cracked then you’d need to replace both and that can be expensive. As a general rule, the LCD is the most expensive part of the screen assembly.
Another common tablet on the market is the Samsung Tablet known as the Tab. There are quite a few different Tab models on the market so if you need to have your Samsung tablet screen repair it’s best to know your exact model before you start shopping around for repair quotes.
The Samsung tablet is like the iPad, some of the models have a screen assembly together (glass & LCD) and some have separate glass digitize screens and separate LCD. And just like the iPad, some models are very affordable to fix while others are cheaper to just replace the tablet with another.
