The Mi Max was more of a Phablet than of a phone. The Mi Max display size is large, and thus it is more prone to accidental damage. Bigger screen mobile phones are usually easy to slip down from hands, and thus the screen breaks easily. Once the screen breaks, you’ve to look at a complete screen replacement immediately so you can continue using your handset. If you’ve also broken the Mi Max display (or touch screen glass) and looking for its replacement, you are on the right web page. Please read the complete information below and see actual photos of the product.
The Mi Max display assembly is a complete combo of IPS LCD and touch screen glass. It means that the display comes attached with the touchscreen glass, and in case of breakage, you need to replace the entire combo. Many of our customers call us and explain that they want to change only the broken glass and reuse the same display. They also explain that touch and display everything is working fine, but they just broke the glass.
Is it possible to replace only the glass and reuse the same display?
Just for your information, Mi Max display and touchscreen glass get merged and form a unit called Combo. Therefore, if you’ve broken the Mi Max display or glass and looking for a replacement, buying a combo is the best choice if you want to retain the quality.
Surely, it is possible to replace only the glass and use a duplicate touch screen digitizer glass to substitute the broken one. However, then you’ve to forget about the accurate touch screen response and the quality of touch screen glass. A duplicate glass can never resemble the quality of the original one and is considered a secondary solution. The duplicate touch screen glass doesn’t work properly, and you’ll often observe an incorrect touch screen response.
The substituted glass is very fragile, and you’ve to replace it repeatedly in a short time. You’ve to spend cash multiple times, and even after that, and you’ll still have a compromised display in your hands. We don’t say that glass replacement is impossible, but keeping the display and touch screen quality with such cheap quality solutions is impossible.
How can you test the display without fitting it?
Many customers think it is not possible to test the Mi Max display without pasting/fitting it on the mobile. However, it is not true as you can easily connect the display temporarily to the motherboard and test everything. We always want customers to verify everything before fitting. This is a completely risk-free process when you test the display before fitting. Ask a mechanic to connect the display temporarily to the motherboard and test it completely without pasting or removing the screen guard. When you see that everything is 100% perfect, then you can do the final fitting!
We also suggest that you shouldn’t test the screen hurriedly. Please take a test drive of the new Mi Max display for at least 10 minutes, lock and unlock the device several times and do all the operations you do every day with your phone. So before installing the new display, you can easily make sure that everything is in order and performing well.
