Lenovo K3 Note was one of the most popular handsets from Lenovo in 2015. It is a powerful handset fully packed with quality features and an amazing display. Mobile phones tend to fall very often, and you should be safe from the damage most of the time but not always. If the drop is harsh, the display and touch screen glass can break very easily despite having tempered glass protection. The tempered glass is an additional layer of protection and can’t withstand severe drops.
If you are also dealing with a broken display or touch screen glass of Lenovo K3 Note, you can replace the broken display with a new combo. The Lenovo K3 Note display is actually a combo pack of IPS LCD and touch screen digitizer glass combined. Even if you are dealing with only a cracked touch screen glass, you still need to replace the entire display unit.
Lenovo K3 Note Display Combo With Frame – What is that?
The combo is a spare display unit consisting of the IPS LCD and touch screen glass. The frame is the front side casing that holds the display firmly in place. So when you purchase a display combo with the frame, you are essentially purchasing the display and touch screen glass, pre-assembled in the frame. It is like purchasing the front half portion of your phone in brand new condition.
The display with a frame is the best option to replace broken screens because you replace the broken part with an identical part without compromising the quality. This is how the official service centers restore the broken phones to their flawless condition.
What is the difference between a frame and without a frame display?
If you buy a Lenovo K3 Note combo with an outer frame, you don’t need to use your phone’s old frame. The frame combo requires you to shift the motherboard, battery, and other parts into the new display unit and assemble the phone again. You don’t need to decouple the broken display from the old frame, and there is no use for the old frame now. The frame display is a life savior if the old frame is broken, bent, or misshaped. In such situations, the frame is an essential requirement, and without it, you can’t paste a new display because the frame is the base of the display.
On the other hand, If you buy a combo without a frame, you have to take out the broken display from the old frame first, requiring heating the front panel and then taking it out. Then you’ll paste a new combo manually in the old frame using glue or double tapes. The final output will not that good because of so much manual work. Although this screen replacement method is more popular due to less cost yet, you’ll see repairing signs on the phone, and even glue will be visible on the sides. The final finishing of this method is not as good as with the frame combo.
