Realme U1 is a popular phone and If you drop it accidentally, the display or touch screen glass will easily damage. A broken screen is a very common issue and happens to all of us. You can see lots of people using phones with broken screens so It is very normal to scratch the display. The main screen is made of two components, the IPS LCD display, and the touch screen glass.
In most cases, only the touch screen gorilla glass will scratch and the inner display will still be fine. If the damage is really intensive, then you can see inner display turning black, showing big black spots or horizontal/vertical lines all over the display. It is also possible that the phone is still getting notifications and incoming calls but nothing is visible on the display.
How to deal with a broken Realme U1 display?
You don’t need to worry about a broken Realme U1 display and take it lightly. It is certainly not the end of the world and you can easily replace the broken screen with a new one. We have taken snapshots of an actual Realme U1 display to show you how it looks like and how the side corners can also get damaged. This combo has been taken out from an actual Realme U1 phone and you can also see the dented corners in the photos.
As visible in the photos above, the broken display looks really bad and side corners are also chipped off. If the corners are also broken away, then you certainly need a display with the outer frame/bezel. This is because a broken frame is not capable of holding the new display properly. If you try to fix a new display is a collapsed frame, the display will not fit properly in the frame. If the frame and display are having gaps in-between, the display is much prone to future damages. This is why you need to purchase the Realme U1 display with an outer frame as shown on this page.
What are the benefits of buying the display with the outer frame?
You can understand this spare part as a front half portion of your phone. You need to disassemble the phone, remove the front damaged portion and replace it with a similar new part. This is exactly how this works and combo with frame offers lots of other advantages like :
- You don’t need to paste the display manually as It comes pre-fitted.
- The fitting is done by the factory so It is as good as comes with a brand new phone.
- You can easily replace the combo with the frame at your home.
- The lifespan of the combo with frame is as good as a factory-fitted display.
- You don’t need double tapes, glue or any other similar material to paste the display.
Surely, the combo with frame is pricey but It is a worthy investment in the long run. We are not into selling cheap spare parts to our customers and have them face issues later. We want to offer 100% original parts to our customers and price comes secondary to us. If you bought a first copy display from the local market and the experience was very bad, just give us a try for once and you will love the quality.
Can I replace only the touch screen glass without replacing the entire combo?
Many customers consider this option as they are looking to save money on the screen replacement. If the display is fine and only touch screen glass is broken, customers usually try to find ways to replace only the glass. In their research, they see online tutorials on Youtube and try with their offline contacts to see If the glass replacement is possible.
It is certainly possible to replace the only glass but we don’t recommend it due to quality issues. If anyone is recommending glass replacement, they do it for their own benefit so they can extort some extra cash from you. Here are the drawbacks of only glass replacement :
- Oftentimes, the display will also break during the replacement process and then you have to get the combo.
- The process of replacing the glass is manual and lots of dust spots, white spots, and dead pixels will be visible inside the display.
- The OCA sheets which mechanics use to paste the glass are poor quality which turns brightness to a yellowish tint.
- The touch screen glass used by technicians costs Rs 40 and It is very fragile so get ready to replace the glass again in the future.
Mechanics suggest glass replacement to make money and customers are biased for it because It is cheaper. The glass replacement is the worst quality solution from our perspective and even the official service center will never do glass replacement. Still, If you wish to go for only glass replacement, please visit the local market.
