Broken screen, and eventually front camera also stopped working.
Had a broken screen for about 10 months. I decided to fix it as the front camera also became defective.
Followed the guides and replaced the screen and front camera. Took about an hour.
The parts are good stuff. I tried once with an ebay part and was a waste of time, had to return it. This one is good (or maybe great!:) I wonder if it has the same Gorila glass as the original screen.. ?
Used a sheet of paper taped to the desk, placed the screws on it, and each time I draw a box around the screw along with the step number. That gives controls on the process so not to mess up the screws.
Interesting, I found a loose screw, its place is close to the vibrator so I guess it has to do with it.
Only miss, the speaker mesh. It didn't come with the replacement and the old one disappeared long time ago.
Overall a almost tiring task but well worth it if you like it, and good for the environment, I hope!
I can't post photos, I was repairing my photo taking device ;)

If you want photos, guess, you can't use the phone! :)
