This is awesome guide. My 20 days old onePlus2 lens broke, when my pocket hit the table while I had the phone in there. After reading in the forum about the OnePlus customer service, I did not bother calling OnePlus. I ordered the lens for $5 from parts4repair.com. Followed this awesome directions and replaced the lens without a glitch.

BIG BIG BIG KUDOS to Kayla Williams. This really saved me a lot of time and trouble and made my phone worth again. I can't thank you enough.

This is a really good guide. My 2 month old one plus 2 was denied service due to some water damage policy. A drop of sweat might have gone in and the service centre says the product is water damaged.

Can you help me with some website where I can find the back camera for one plus 2 please?

Hey guys! My OPT fell off a rollercoaster and fortunatly the glass isn't broken at all, but my front camera is damaged. This guide helped me a lot but I can't find that part.

Sadly parts4repair has no front camera lens in its sortiment. Can you give me some websites where I can find the parts
