Touchscreens are part of the flavors in smartphones like Android. It is obvious that touchscreens are too fragile to shock, hit or pressures on them. For these reasons, one is always advised to buy both glass screen guards and phone pack/pouch.

Sometimes ago my phone fell off from my grip and unfortunately hit the tip of its front view on a cemented floor. Though I had a screen guard when it fell but the areas that were not covered by the screen guard had serious scratch – the front camera was affected. In conclusion, screen guards are not just enough to protect your screen from this kind of incidence.
Fixing broken touchscreen or replace it entirely?
Before we conclude which approach (fix or replace) is better, it is good to note that touchscreen architectures vary – i.e how they are structured within the device screen. Touchscreens were used to be separate from earlier phone models when one only has to replace cracked or broken touchscreens very easily.
But recently, most smartphone manufacturers have re-engineered how it is used to be. For instance in Samsung, if one’s touchscreen is broken and requires replacement, he/she has only the option of replacing the screen alongside with the touchscreen.
What do I mean by replacing the screen alongside with the touchscreen?
Yes, we have talked about restructuring and re-engineering, the newer phones have the touchscreen glued onto the screen. It becomes almost difficult to tangle with unlike the earlier phones that require you to only clip the touchscreen very easily. Normally one has to only replace the touchscreen provided that the screen is not affected. But with the new revolution, one has to pay hugely for screen.
Screen replacement and cost sometimes is almost half the price of the actual phone. When one considers the cost and the current situation of the phone, one starts thinking of any possible means to get ones phone working.
