Many people worry that screen replacement for Samsung Edge models may cost an absolute fortune. It is true that replacing an entire screen assembly, in some cases, can cost almost as much as a brand-new phone. But there is another, much more affordable option.
It may be possible for an experienced, skilled, repair technician to replace only the damaged parts of the screen while retaining the parts that are still functional. This can save you a considerable amount of money!
Below we will look at different screen components and jobs, so we can diagnose the part(s) that need to be replaced:
Samsung Edge screen assemblies are made up of 2 main layers, bonded together with special adhesives. Think of it as a high-tech sandwich.
The front glass, front screen or touch screen is the top layer and the part you touch when interacting with the Phone.
The AMOLED (a type of OLED display device technology) is like an ultra-thin, tiny computer monitor and is responsible for displaying images, video, etc. It is the most expensive component of the screen assembly and very fragile when not bonded to the digitizer and glass.
This will depend on how the damaged Samsung is behaving:
The front glass is cracked but the display is still displaying/working correctly. In this case, the display is still functional and so it will only need the front glass and digitizer replaced.
The front glass is cracked, and dark blobs/lines appear on the display. Unfortunately, this would indicate that the display is damaged, and a full-screen assembly will be required to repair the device.
It is a difficult task to successfully refurbish Samsung Edge screens. The fragile components are bonded together, and so it is a job that requires patience, skill, and specialist equipment. It should only be carried out by experienced repair technicians.
To give some idea of what is involved in this type of repair, below is a step-by-step example detailing the replacement of a Samsung screen’s front glass while retaining the original display:
We ensure that the phone's TOUCHSCREEN and AMOLED (Display) Screen are fully functional.
This step requires the use of specialised, cutting-edge equipment. Broken glass can be removed without damaging the display by an experienced technician.
As you can see from the preceding example, repairing a phone screen is a time-consuming and delicate process. But when done correctly by a skilled professional, it can save you a lot of money.
After removing the old screen, we clean the display of any dust and glue before laminating the new screen.
Using OCA glue and lamination machines, the replacement front glass is laminated to the original display. This procedure ensures that the screen assembly looks brand new!
The Optically Clear Adhesive Tape Film (OCA) is a highly specialised film that provides excellent clarity and adhesion to a variety of transparent substrates. OCA tapes and films are used in transparent applications such as displays, touch panels, and other devices that require an optically clear bond.
After applying OCA glue to the new touchscreen surface, heat and a pressure vacuum seal the new touch-screen surface to the digitizer, in four minutes. The touchscreen comes out bubble and dust-free thanks to the vacuum environment of the machine
Now we have a brand new looking original refurbished screen.
As you can see from the above example, an Samsung OLED screen refurbishing is a long, delicate process, but when done correctly by a skilled professional, it can save a lot of money.
