Replacement LCD Screens for Your Samsung Galaxy Note II
Have you ever had a phone with a screen that looks shattered, darkened, or pixelated? If this has happened to you, you can replace just the LCD phone screen with a working version instead of getting rid of the entire phone. Replacing a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is a quick process that will let you continue to use your phone.What is an LCD screen made of?
An LCD essentially looks like a very thin, clear sheet of material. It is made by putting layers of liquid crystals between thin panes of glass. The layers include polarizing films and common electrode planes to properly conduct electricity and light through all of the liquid crystal layers. The entire screen has a reflective surface at the back that lets it properly display glass.Which parts come in screen replacement kits?
Many phone LCD screens are sold in kits designed to help you replace a cracked or broken phone screen. Depending on the set you purchase, the following items may be included:
- LCD display: This is a very thin panel that will display the items on your screen.
- Digitizer: This looks like a panel of clear glass that fits over the LCD.
- Frame: This is the thin strip of metal that houses the screen.
- Adhesive: Adhesive may be included to help reset the screen.
- Tools: Some kits may include tools to aid in assembly.
Some screens have a digitizer attached, but the two items are not always sold together. The LCD digitizer is the piece that fits over the screen and translates the motions of your finger or stylus into a language the phone can understand. Your LCD display will then show the images required by your phone. If your digitizer is the only broken part, the screen will looked cracked, but the display underneath will look fine. When the display is broken, the images will look dark, be partially pixelated, or look completely black.What colors are the screens for Samsung Galaxy Note 2?
