Is the glass lifting up from the plastic front display frame? This can be due to the battery inside the phone swelling up pushing the screen.

This is sometimes solved by gluing the screen back down. Not really sure what liquid to use but I use liquid glue.

Also it can push up without the battery swelling if it's a bad quality screen.

heyo, if its lifting at the top its best to use some glue like b-7000 (can get on eBay) and get it under there and then clamp it down for about an hour at least, if its lifting up on the sides however you might want to double check your battery isn't swollen first, if it is id recommend replacing it before gluing the screen otherwise it'll just come back up again even if you replace the screen entirely , id recommend doing it soon though as the longer you leave it the more stress its putting on the screen cables and if left for to long can damage them to the point where you need a whole new screen

Yep, that's the glue I use to put the screen back on. Definitely check if battery isn't swollen first. When you glue the screen make sure to put some tape to keep the screen down and allow the glue to set properly.
