A broken OnePlus Five display can be disappointing, but you can easily replace the broken screen with a new one. The OnePlus Five display issues come as a shock because suddenly, you can’t use your phone anymore. The situation gets even tougher when you don’t have the backup of your phone. We have seen many customers in the same condition when they have important data on the phone, and the screen gets scratched.
What to do when the OnePlus 5 display damages?
The OnePlus 5 boasts a super AMOLED display offering wonderful quality and brightness. Although Gorilla Glass 5 protection is there to prevent any accidental damages yet still, gorilla glass can break very easily at times when the display directly hits the floor. Sometimes, the display may continue to work after damage, and in other cases, everything can stop working in a jiffy.
There is no need to fuss over a broken display or touch screen glass as you can easily overcome the problem. The display issues are very common for everyone having a phone, but you can easily replace the broken screen with a new one. So when the display damages, you need to assess the damage, and if the device is still working, make sure to take a complete backup of the phone.
Can I continue to use the phone in the broken condition?
Yes, you can still use the phone if everything is still working on the screen. Sometimes, the display gets only hairline scratches, and that’s something you should worry about. It is always a good idea to keep using the display as long as possible.
You’ve to replace the display either today or tomorrow, but immediate display replacement is not essential in all the cases. Therefore, we don’t suggest that you rush for OnePlus 5 screen replacement as soon as It breaks. Just relax, take your time, and then proceed for a screen replacement. In case the phone is badly broken, and glass pieces are dropping off the touch screen glass, then don’t take the risk and replace the display as soon as feasible.
Understand the difference between Optic AMOLED and TFT Display
The original display of OnePlus 5 is Optic AMOLED that exhibits the best quality colors, brightness, and resolution. Now when the display scratches and you start looking for a new display, you need to aware of some basics so that you can make a wise decision.
You might have heard of cheap screen replacements that cost less than Rs 1500, and you might think that you found an original display for a lesser price. A lot of customers usually go to the local market in the hunt for a display replacement. Please note that the display you get locally is not the AMOLED display, but It is a cheaper quality of it called the TFT version. Such screens are cheaper, but the display quality is inferior. Many people expect that by spending such a low amount, they will get precisely the original display, but It is never going to happen.
The original display is Optic Amoled, and we sell this quality in our store. So if you buy a low-priced display, don’t think that you are buying gold for the prices of silver. You are going to get the quality your pay for.
How can I replace only the top layer of glass without replacing the display?
In many cases of accidental damage, only the touch screen glass breaks while the display stays intact. In such cases, customers try to explore the option of only glass replacement so that they can save some money.
Technically, the glass replacement never serves as a solution, but It is just a workaround. It is like taking chances and hoping for the same original quality as before. The glass replacement is possible, but It will result in degraded display quality. It is a risk where the mechanic will say that he will try to replace the glass, and if something adverse happens, It is not his responsibility.
The glass replacement comes with absolutely no warranties or assurance of any kind. The mechanics use your phone’s display to complete their training of glass replacement because even if everything breaks, you can’t speak anything. Even if the glass replacement is successful, you will see lots of flaws inside the display because of the low-quality material used for the replacement. Such glass replacement is very short-lived. Within a few days, you might damage the glass again and find yourself in a dilemma when you’ve to replace the glass every month and spend a lot more money than you initially thought.
