Moving on to the screen, we find the second half of the glass-vibrating earpiece speaker module stuck to the back of the display as we fight through the adhesive.

Similar to the back cover, the gap between the frame and the display is virtually non-existent—and the slightly-curved edges of the display don't help, either. We're pretty sure this display is done for after the heat, cutting, and prying it's endured.

The strong adhesive strings between the frame and the display fight us like Spider-Man trying to reassemble a boat.

The question that arises for us is: If your screen should break or crack toward the top half of the phone, will there be any sound distortion with the new earpiece speaker technology? Will it even work at all? We'll investigate—stay tuned.
