which mobile phones have separate digitizer and LCD?

I've noticed that some mobile phones have fused LCD and digitizer,and some don't.For example iPhone 5 (or similar),you have to buy full assemly(LCD and digitizer),and on the other side HTC Desire 610(you can replace only digitizer).

Maybe the best example are the phones from the same manufacturer:

HTC Desire 500(have to do full assembly)

HTC Desire 610(you can replace only digitizer).

I was wondering if I can recognize if some phone has fused LCD and digitizer or not ?

Your just not looking in the right place

THC 610 glass and digitzer

THC 610 glass and digitzer and LCD

HTC 500 glass and digitizer

HTC500 Assembled

Iphone 5 glass only

In the case of the iphone 5 its glass alone or full assembly

Most older phones could be had in any one of 3 forms , glass alone, glass and digitizer or as a full assembly glass digitizer and LCD. There are a few that come as one assembly only . you have to take what you supplier provides or look elsewhere. For the most part you can break them down but the price tends to be the deciding factor. If you can get a full screen assembly for under $50 you replace the whole thing but if its going to cost 200-300 you try to break it down. Clear as Mud? Hope it helps

Older phones such as 3GS and obviously iPads.

It would be interesting to see a phone company use a similar build as Apple do with iPads and have the digitizer adhered to the sides.
