Replacing the digitiser of my ZTE Blade phone


A year a go I had a run-in with a table which shattered the digitiser of my phone. Being a master of postponing and never getting stuff done, I have pulled myself together and installed a new digitiser. It took an hour because I was not able to get the old digitiser out of the front-casing. Fortunately, I was able to find someone with the same problem who had used a hair-dryer to warm up the screen and casing in order to pop it out, and it worked for me too! Now I can enjoy a crack-free screen again. 🙂

    You would normally use a heat gun to heat up the adhesive layer that keeps the digitizer and the frame together. Your method is just as decent, but spreads the heat instead of focusing it to a single point.
