Oddest Fix..

so I'm motoring around in the shop and most of my shop has concrete for floors, and bam I drop my cell phone.......of course it hits the floor in the corner and cracks the screen. I'm about 2.5 months away from an upgrade and don't want to spend money on putting a new screen on it. got price of $129 . what to do what to do ......the touch screen feature is deemed useless can't do a thing but the cracks are really fine but are still there it is broken. then I think I got nothing to lose, I grab a bottle of crazy glue, I spread it over the area where the cracks are wait about 5 seconds and took a razar blade and scraped off the extra glue so it was smooth. I had phone shut off so I left it off until glue seemed to completely dry.......I turn on phone and bingo cracks are harder to see and touch screen feature is resumed...........may not work for everyone but if it works like this until upgrade time I'll be happy

i break my phone all the time. it doesn't even matter if there is a case on it. if it hits concrete, the screen shatters. i had protection plan on phone but it costs 2x as much than fixing urself. so far, ive fixed 3 of mine. and about 10 for friends and family. 

 

id rather fix cars than fix these smart phones. :/

Pretty clever, fortunately I've never (knock on wood) have had to deal with that I've been pretty lucky with drops on the phone

your right.I' ve had cell phones since before I can remember and never had one brake or got damaged like this drop. I don't think it fell more than 24" but hit just the right way

Yeah it's always odd how they break. My S6 took dozens of 10'+ drops and fell out of my chest pocket going thirty on an ATV onto blacktop. No cracks. Slides off a vise. All of the cracks. All my cheap $30 burners I had in the past would break in my pocket when I leaned on something.

Sweet, same thing happened to my S6, I went out and bought a CAT S60 and am a lot happier with it. It actually is kinda dented already due to a lack of case havery, but no cracks.


You should get another Cat s60 and use the thermal imager to see if it's losing any heat now! [emoji23]

I bet Saul goodman was pissed he had to get you new burners all the time!

Oddly enough, I dropped my iPhone 4 too many times to count, and it never cracked! I also never replaced it due to major failures. Just finally got slow, and the battery said no mas. But I've been through 3x 5's, and I'm on my 3rd 6! Look at them wrong and they bend!

I might be the youngest person to still use an iPhone 4 as their main phone.
