Premier, affordable touch screen replacement in Augusta GA
Anyone who owns a smartphone would have gone through the pain of dropping their phone and having to replace the touch screen. There are a lot of mobiles in the market now that come with a shatterproof screen. Well, not all phones get that feature, though. And no matter how carefully you guard your phone, it somehow tends to fall. And ironically, it lands on the screen in most cases- and there you are, with a broken screen!
When your phone screen has cracked, it is essential to understand the level of damage done. This would help you decide on how to get the repair or replacement done. A trusted service professional would guide you about which layer is damaged and what the required resolution would be.
Touchscreen vs. the LCD display layer:
The touchscreen or the digitizer is the actual outer layer of glass that you see on your phone. When the damage is just at the outer layer, your display would still be working fine. Only the broken glass would be hindering the normal operation. Digitizer is the layer that receives the actual haptic feedback from the user and relays the responses to the inner display layer.
The LCD display layer is that which comes below the touchscreen. This is the layer that processes the actual display from the haptic responses received. When your screen remains intact, and if the LCD display is damaged, then you would see patches, lines or other anomalies on the display.
When can a touch screen be damaged?
When your phone is dropped, if it falls and lands on the screen, the chances are that the outer glass shatters.
In most cases when your phone is dropped, if the direct impact is not on your screen, then it might escape with very little or no damage at all. There might be a tiny bit of glass that chips off due to the fall. Mostly a major damage happens only when the mobile directly lands with the screen facing the area of impact. That is when you might need a touch screen replacement. A replacement is required mainly because a broken glass screen isn’t very safe or convenient to work with.
