  3. Start by heating the screen to make the glue soft and smooth. The glued areas are the upper corners, around the ear speaker and thin glue strips on the sides. The most glued zone is the bottom: almost the entire black bottom with the Huawei logo is glued. In this example I tried to lift the display too quickly and the LCD was damaged by the already splintered underside. No extra profit to be made for this repair via sale of a broken screen: (

  10. Apply glue to all previously studied areas with glue residues on the old screen, namely the edges, the entire black bottom of the screen, the top corners and around the ear speaker. Align the new screen neatly with the frame. Press the screen gently. Avoid applying too much force to the screen to prevent LCD damage. You should hear slight clicking sounds when the pins and crosses on the frame are anchored in the chassis. In the end, do not forget to screw in the 2 screws at the bottom, replace the sim tray and place any covers.
