Support LCD Screen Vs Digitizer Broken Screen

Discussion in 'Android Devices' started by robobobo, Apr 27, 2013.

  1. Hey guys,

    So what I thought never would happen beloved HTC One X's screen which had been through so much, finally decided it couldn't take one more fall and shattered on me :(

    I've been looking into replacement screens, and I've noticed Digitizer and LCD screen come up a lot. Do I need to replace both of them?

    The reason I ask is there is the option of buying just a replacement digitizer or an LCD screen or an LCD Screen with Digitizer, all of different prices as you can see


    What do I need?

    The touchscreen is still working perfectly, just the glass on the screen is shattered.

    Any input is appreciated as always!

    if im correct the glass is just the lcd screen,but the digitizer is the part under the screen that makes the touch part me it sounds like all ya need is the lcd screen only..but make sure first to see if im correct on this..
  3. Hmm I've done a bit more digging, and I think it might be the other way around to what you said thundergod66.

    The digitizer is stuck to the top of the screen, with the lcd underneath it. I think :/

    But from what I've read, it's quite easy to break the screen trying to detach the digitizer so people normally just replace the two of them at the same time. Anyone have any experience on this?

  5. Hey GuitarG20,

    Yes I think you're right, it looks like I'll need to get the digitizer and display if I want to get this sorted properly

    Cheers for the link!
