How should I remove and replace a newly replaced phone screen?


I am trying to replace my Nexus 5x screen. I took apart the phone and successfully removed the cracked screen. Today, I put the adhesive on the phone and put the new phone screen in place, but after pressing the screen into the phone, I realized that I had forgotten to put the earpiece and loudspeaker anti-dust mesh in the new phone screen. Do you have any advice on how I should go about fixing this problem – could I heat up the new screen (will the new adhesive I have put on melt like the original adhesives on the phone) and would I be able to reuse this new screen after removing it and the adhesive stuck to it or would I need to order a new phone screen as well as new adhesive?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You should just be able to remove it like any other screen. I would suggest new adhesive but you can get away by reusing the old one as long as you dont remove or destroy too much if it.

As long as you be careful, you should be fine. Just dont break your new screen.
