Replacing My Samsung Galaxy S3 Front Glass Screen




What do you think about this video?

Abhi Jain: can i put the screen over a small flame? lol.. 

get money: My fone jst went black

TAMMY CALLOWAY: Be incredibly careful removimg the glass as to not damage whats beneath it. Ruimed mine doing this, unfortunately.

Michal Mentlik: Hello Lucky Dog, its really that easy to swap a digitizer ? How does actually that digitizer work ? As I know the inner LCD screen doesnt have a touchscreen right ? So mobile only works and reacts just through the digitizer. My question is : there´s no wire or something simillar underneath the digitizer is it ? thx in advance 

Thomas Vernon: should have tried using a hammer

stinkyfrenchcheese: How do you remove the front glass without damaging the digitizer connector (brown flat rubber) visible at 7:45 at the bottom right corner? As far as I know both are connected. Thanks 

Nicholas Tsaoucis: i found that a piece of thread was better for removing teh screen after you start with the knife, so you dont damage the digitiser, also tape to hold the pieces together, for saftey and ease

Sacoya Hicks: does anyone in kennesaw ga does this but with The LCD replacement i ordered the front screen glass replacement 

Nigley Wiggle: try a flame thrower

Dominic D'Maestro: What about the sensor cable disconnection and re-connection?

MRmanpower21: does this guy sound like he is speaking some kind of star trek language at 9:10 when he is heaps excited

dixienormus93: maybe using tape would hold the pieces together and make the screen come off as a whole unit?

APOLLOC5: Brazuca morando em usa?? Hehehe Vlw pelo video...era bem oq eu tava procurando... A longo prazo o serviço ficou bom?? A nova tela fixou bem coladinha??

stone reptile: This sucks man this sucks! Why did it have to break?! WHY?!!!!

islamSource: quick question if anyone knows the answer. Is it possible to change the cover of an S3 from pebble blue to white

jorjthemorj: is that a hairdryer? what temperature is needed for melting the glue

Online Gadget Store: Thank you for this one. It is a little complicated but it is worth it at the end. Just make sure that you follow all the directions because it may lead to worse situations if not. If you are not confident, then, just bring it to Samsung. They will surely do better but also with a better price. 

brandon sebek: Most of these comments "don't do this" are more than likely from non tech savvy people who don't understand the concept of the digitizer/led screen being extremely sensitive and fragile. Honestly I have never done this before until now. Took me about an hour being very careful since my screen was shattered into about 50 pieces. Now the touch screen works amazing. Be careful when you do this, and you can turn this into a $7 fix compared to paying your carrier $100+ ... great video and everyone else good luck!

Pat's Place: Smashed my bloody phone. the vid to fix it looks rock hard Replacing my Samsung Galaxy S3 Front Glass Screen

E Abuhasbu: I believe if you have used the right tools from the beginning, you would have saved much time.

jimmy chain: Ok you were able to still see your screen mines is blackout .....is it still able to be fix the same way ......it power on still just cant see anything or touch responsive

budubum: ok. i guess ill just have to leave this to the store thenm.

ashley Marie: from the very beginning i was hoping youd freak up the button flex cable for starting from the bottom -_-. you werent supposed to use a pry took either, rather a few guitar picks available in kits (my fav being ifixit's), or in the very least if you were patient the razor blades. it probably took you so long too because you werent patient with the blow dryer. it takes about 5 minutes initially with an actual heat gun no higher than 180 degrees. all i have to say is wow. good attempt though.

rcazangi: I only can give the link to the one I used -- see on the video description.

Andrew Talbot: I just watched this video before replacing my screen. Half way through removing small pieces of glass I realised you and I both were peeling apart the laminate, rather than removing the screen as a single piece. You would have realised this and removed the underneath layer also, but still posted this video without making reference to it. Once I got the leverage under the whole screen it came off within a couple of minutes, not the hours it was taking you. Do not use this video as a guide!

rcazangi: For sure.

JazzCity09: Hi Great video, so no glue was necessary??? just the one already existing on the phone?

Shawn Forbes: did you clear out all the old glue & crud before installing the new screen?

rcazangi: I don't speak Spanish but I got your questions. Just the glass is enough if the touch is working normally.

rcazangi: You can do it yourself but there's always a risk for you to end up damaging even more the device. It's up to you.

emdicadam: Thanks!

mmorphed: You started to remove glass from the bottom , it was your mistake. Next time start from the top to the bottom.

Robert Klein: "From the top to the bottom, bottom to top, I stop" is the answer for me.

Joshua Alicea: I have to say I thought the same, but then I noticed this is without any instruction so u have to give to him on effort

mezonesxbox: *heat the inside with hair dryer. phone in bag*

mhatthei: 9:09 ... oppa? OPPA! oppa gangnam style.

mhatthei: *eat play nap happy*

rcazangi: No

Tushar Handa: hey i broke my s4's glass today i bought it on 19th July 2013 [touch screen working totally fine (phew) ] should i try to replace it on my own or give it to Samsung office ? what should i do please tell i am so scared because my dad will be very angry once he finds out that i broke my new phone in less then a month [it is my birthday present] [sorry for my bad English ]

rcazangi: Mine had some glue leftover on the sides. I also use a case that holds the screen in place.

Edgar Gionet: Ok, couple of things: A) Place tape on your screen to prevent little shards of glass from flying. B) No higher than 160 degrees for a long period of time will turn that glue into liquid, making much easier. C) MOST IMPORTANT> DO NOT START AT BOTTOM! Start from the top of your phone near the earpiece. When you get to the touch buttons, be careful as there is a ribbon cable that you will need to remove from the glass Carefully!

Laurel S: if mine is still touch-sensitive but has a cracked screen, that means I only need to replace the LCD right? I don't need to order a new digitizer?

anet mac: I wondering if setting in hot sun could work also?

Nitin Toms: cracked the LCD and now my phone is useless...

Batidas e Rachas: oi amigo, esotu seguindo o seu tutorial mas a cola nao desgruda do lcd do meu s3 de jeito nenhum, ja tentei o pano de oculos, de microfibra, ate passei alcool no lcd windex, nao desgruda de jeito nenhum, liguei o aparelho pra ver se funciona e ta tudo ok, mas me ajuda nesse etapa por favor, alguma sugestao ? vlw

D0tam4n: hey dude so what happens if you try to pry the glass too hard and the lcd lifts up"? i heard that fux it up.

rcazangi: Why should I worry about this? I'm not here selling or promising anything -- I'm suggesting one idea to help others in the same situation. And many many others have followed the procedure with success -- just read the comments. Not to mention a bunch of other videos doing exact the same thing -- just search around. I achieved what I wanted: repaired my own phone and helped others do the same.

Josh Freeman: can i see what this looks like

TheAMA911: can u give me a link to a trusted ebay screen seller? thanks

Drakker: Can this be done in an authorized service?

EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
