Cracked screen :(
« on: February 22, 2013, 01:57:24 PM »
please help...

I need to find somewhere to replace my screen or even just buy the screen as my son dropped and cracked it.

I live in Northampton, England and would really appreciate any help.

Many thanks,

Santino

My son had his slide off his knee a couple of weeks ago, and then a few days ago, my got cracked while in my pants pocket. :(

I ended up using it as an excuse to buy two new 32Gb ones and retire the two 8Gb ones, but I am afraid of the same thing happening again! This is not an expense I can do often.

Do you think someone can replace a screen for less money than these things cost?

Its still not cost efficient to replace the screens unless you get a steal on eBay and do it yourself...

I ve seen a few messages about cracked screens. Do the various cases offer real protection for prevent ing it?

Sure some of them do. I use a gumdrop and it would take a lot to crack the screen, a simple screen protector helps prevent cracking too.

I have a little cloth case. I have dropped my Nex7 numerous times. Once it slid up the street on its screen. I have scratches but no cracks. Lucky I guess. Some protection is better than none.

What's a gumdrop?

A gumdrop is a rugged totally enclosing case. It was the first of this kind available for the Nexus 7. Its similar to the top of the line otterbox plus "military grade" rubberization.
