    Great tips on self repair! For those that are relatively tech savvy, it can be a great solution. For those who aren’t, that’s when your friendly phone repair biz is worthwhile.

    I would suggest taking it to a professional that has experience fixing this type of item. These phones have very small components and are quite hard to fix correctly without the proper tools.

    I agree that you should hire a pro to fix your cracked screen. Otherwise, you’ll probably mess your phone up even more. Watching a tutorial can give you the knowledge, but not the experience you’d need to succeed.

    DIYing a screen repair can be intimidating, but there are so many YouTube tutorials out there that anyone can be an expert. Even still, if you are too scared, you can take it to a shop and they will fix it for pretty cheap. Thanks for sharing.

      I agree. A lot of repairs can seem overwhelming. But YouTube is an excellent resource no matter the job. Odds are you will be able to find out how to make the repairs in a video.

    When it comes to fixing screens I found that finding people that I knew and knew how to do it would actually cut me a deal as long as I ordered the screen. It was cheaper than hiring a professional! Thanks for sharing these options!
