I have a question to Bob, how did you fix the broken screen? It looks like both glass and LCD/display have to be replaced based on my research.

Hey guys,

I have a Galaxy S7 Edge and need to replace the screen on it as it is cracked. I do not see any replacement screens available here. Does anyone know where I can find a good quality replacement screen for this?

Thanks

If it were me, I would not submerge my phone under water.

In order to repair the screen, the adhesive/waterproofing have to be removed from the front and the back of the phone. Its very possible that there could be leaks.

But then again...I would not submerge my phone in water no matter what. Even though it has a waterproof rating, Samsung does not warranty against water damage. Plus water damage is basically a death sentence for a phone. Pick up a cheap action camera for such things.

I agree even if a phone is water resistance, it should only be used like accidentally gone in water and not intentionally.

The water resistant adhesive seal degrades / breaks over time from liquid chemicals / salt water and etc.

So that is why liquid damage is never covered on water resistant phones.
