The Motorola Moto Z Play is a trendy phone because of its wonderful features and stunning AMOLED display. Many people who possess this phone are unwilling to give up on this because it still provides the best display quality you’ll not find even in the latest phones.
The Moto Z Play phone has a pre-installed AMOLED display, and Gorilla Glass 3 protects the screen from minor drops. Still, the phone is prone to breakage if it skids off your hands from a great height. The AMOLED display is complicated, and once it breaks, you’ve to replace the complete combo of display and touch screen glass.
What is the meaning of the Moto Z Play Display Combo?
The display of Moto Z Play comprises two individual parts, the display, and the touch screen glass. When companies manufacture the phone, they combine the display and touch screen glass using LOCA (Liquid Optical Clear Adhesive). It means that the display and touch screen come glued together, but still, you will not see any signs of glue because of the optically clear adhesive, and it is precisely what the word combo means.
When the display attaches to the touch screen glass, we call the resultant unit a Combo/Folder. In case of any physical damage to the glass or inner display, you need to replace the entire assembly because you cannot replace them individually. If you have broken the top layer of gorilla glass or damaged the internal display, this part is useful for both cases as it comprises both display and touch screen gorilla glass. We sell a 100% original combo of Moto Z Play, which offers the same colors, brightness, and sharpness as the factory-fitted display.
How does the display replacement work?
To replace a broken screen in Moto Z Play, you have to take off the broken screen from the front side and paste the new display in place of the old one. The company designed the phone so that you can’t open it from the backside. You don’t even need to unscrew a single screw to replace the display.
All you need to do is blow some hot air on the broken display to soften the adhesive and take it out. Then paste a new display by using Glue or Double tapes, and that’s all. It is probably one of the easiest phones to repair. Please note that the display replacement requires utmost care and takes a maximum of 15 minutes. Just be sure to seek an expert’s help because these things require expertise when you fit them. Always test the combo before you fix it permanently to avoid any problems later.
How can you test the new combo before fixing it permanently?
As a customer, you must test the new Moto Z Play display before fixing it on your phone. This testing process ensures your safety and allows you to make sure that everything is in order. We never recommend fixing the display without testing it first. It is a rule of thumb in this business to test the display to rule out any possibilities of defective parts. From our end, we try each screen manually and then send it to our customers.
After receiving the new screen, you can connect the display’s flex cable to your phone’s motherboard in an open condition and test the screen. There is no need to tear off the display’s protective films or use glue/double tapes to paste it. First, test the new display just like you use your phone every day, and after verifying the working condition of the display, you can go for the final installation of the product.
Is it possible to replace only the glass and reuse the same display?
It is possible to replace only the glass, but that is another inferior quality solution. The only glass replacement is seldom successful, and even if successful, you will not get the same quality again. A refurbished screen can never match the quality of the original Moto Z Play display.
The glass replacement is a secondary solution and can’t resemble the original screen quality. It is a thriving business locally because of low prices, and customers often think they have got nothing to lose. Customers know that complete Moto Z Play combo replacement is the eventual choice, but why not take the risk and see if glass replacement works for them? Customers hope that glass replacement will be successful for them, and even if there is a compromise, at least they saved some cash. So you can try your hands on glass replacement if you are cash-strapped and don’t want to spend much on display.
