    For the past couple weeks the screen on my phone has been slowly separating from the body. As of now, on three of its four sides it's lifted about 1/16 of an inch. So with that I can look into the actual phone from under the LCD. I'm not sure if I should just use it until it's completely separated and I'm unable to use it anymore or if I can make an easy fix and make it last. Thanks

    Sounds like the battery may be bloating. If the screen can't be easily pressed back I would suggest discontinuing use of the device ASAP. The battery could burst at any time and cause serious harm.

    I believe that in phones with screens held in place by adhesives, special adhesives are used, so proceed with care.

    Edit: Posted same moment as above post.

    This is the same person that asked the question. So I can push the screen in all the way in to where it should be and from the looks of it, it's looks pretty flat, even on the back side of the phone.

    Ok so with that I can see the actual adhesive across the boarder of the phone so do you think that I could buy an adhesive on Amazon and DIY it?

    Welcome as a new member.

    hallux's point about a failing expanding battery pushing the screen up is a good one, which did not come to mind when I replied, but if you're certain that the battery is not doing that, then yes, a DIY repair may be possible. Try to find out first what type of adhesive was used for your particular phone.

    Alright cool. I'll stop at my local phone repair and ask them what type of adhesive I should use. Thanks!
