If you dropped the Honor 5A phone and searching for a display replacement, you are on the right page web. Honor launched the Honor 5A phone in June 2016, and it is a very reliable phone from Honor with solid hardware specs. Although the phone has become outdated now, many customers still use it as a backup device. When a device gets aged, older people usually give it to their children. As we all know, kids are typically careless about the phone and often throw it away. In such cases, you might need a display replacement to fix a broken display or touch screen glass.
It can be tough to find the screens for the older models because fewer people use them. Not all people ditch old phones because there are lots of use cases in every household. If you broke the display of your Honor 5A phone and looking for a way to replace it, we offer a brand new display and touch screen glass combo for the said model. The combo allows you to replace the broken screen easily without any hassle.
Honor 5A Display Combo – What is that?
A display combo is a spare display unit widely used to replace a broken display or touch screen glass. We all know that a mobile phone’s display or touch screen glass can break easily, and Honor 5A is not an exception. If you accidentally put down the mobile phone, you’ll end up breaking its display or touch screen. Please also be informed that the display and the touch screen are combined in Honor 5A, and It is not possible to separate both parts and this combined display is called Combo.
For this reason, even if the only touch screen breaks, you’ll need to replace the complete combo consisting of the display and touch screen glass. That is because both parts are combined and can’t be separated. Some customers say that their display is safe and want to replace only the glass. However, It is not the recommended approach, and we always recommend replacing the complete display unit of Honor 5A.
What is the touch screen glass, and can you replace it separately?
The touch screen glass is a separate part that comes pasted on display. When you touch a particular portion of touch screen glass, it responds to the input commands accordingly. The touch screen glass is a separate part, but it gets layered on display by the company. So the touch screen glass sticks on display and it is not recommended to replace it individually.
Still, people try all types of workarounds to save money, and the only touch screen glass replacement is one of them. In this procedure, the technician separates the touch screen glass from the display using a hotplate and a wire. Then the display goes through a cleaning process with a chemical, and then by using a duplicate OCA sheet, the technician pastes a duplicate touch screen glass over the salvaged display. It is a manual process of renewing the display using duplicate spare parts. Such kinds of solutions are very short-lived and often come with lots of quality issues. Even if the only touch screen glass replacement is successful, you won’t be able to use your phone for a long time because such parts start to misbehave in a short time.
