Monica

Screen breaked galaxy j7 prime

Phn fall down n screen breaked


Monica

Is it really gorilla glass


It is. Maybe you experienced a really bad fall that's why it broke. Gorilla Glass doesn't mean it's unbreakable, it's just sturdier than regular glass.


shahid

my j7 prime display has broken, it is under warranty period, only 16 days has passed to buy this phone ,,, can this pone replace a new one display in service centre. reply fast,,


Hey shahid. Unfortunately, that's not covered by warranty unless you have insurance, which will then cover the replacement.


shahid

how will i get a insurance?


Seller usually offers this. You might want to ask about it before buying a phone.


Misty

Shahid you can buy the replacement glass at Tmart.com or Ebay for cheap then follow exact directions online or on YouTube. Also in the future buy a Glass Screen protector they are amazing! I always put them on my new phones now! I got a new LG last month and put a Glass Screen protector on it thank god because I dropped it 4 days later. I had them on my Samsung too. If they get dropped or smushed, the glass sscreen protector shatters. Buy a new one, pull the shattered one off and the glass on your phone u underneath is still perfect without a crack or a scratch!
