Introduction

If the camera's glass lens is broken on the back of your Huawei P20 Pro but you can take pictures, then you need to replace that lens. This repair is simple, but requires patience and preciseness. For the repair you will first have to remove the small pieces of shattered glass, then clean the area and glue the new lens with double-sided tape or simply by making 2 points of glue. The goal is to avoid touching the camera itself to avoid scratching it.

  1. Start by placing your phone face down on a clean, well-lit surface.
