Cracked Screen: Verizon Galaxy S5
I'm trying to get some information for a friend. She dropped her S5 and cracked the screen. The display is black and unresponsive. However, the phone itself still works as you can hear it ring, text messages coming in, etc. A few questions...
1. Does she need to order a screen / digitizer assembly? If so, can anyone recommend a site?
2. How difficult is the repair? I did my son's iPhone screen recently and it wasn't too bad. Is this comparable?
3. Any other tips or information I should know?
FYI, she has had the phone just over a month and does not have the insurance. She had a case on it that she had purchased from Verizon. I told her when the phone is fixed to get an Otterbox. She literally dropped her phone from her lap in the car to the ground (approximately 2 feet). I've dropped my HTC probably 5 times from higher than this and my Otterbox has saved me. Can't say enough good things about those cases. My wife has one too and has the S5. She is pretty rough on her phones and so far, so good.
