Replacing Samsung Galaxy S3 broken glass in 111 photos

Update Mar 6, 2013.

After using my phone for about 4 months I replaced the screen again. This time with the kit, that comes with LCD display, and I believe the original Samsung display. Here are reasons:

  1. Touch responsiveness. It felt somewhat non-responsive.
  2. Some clicks with my finger just disappeared. Not many, but still very annoying.
  3. Non original glass I suppose. It gets dirty very quickly, and touch feels a little sticky.
  4. Image quality degraded. Almost unnoticeable, but still…
  5. Almost impossible to use gesture for screen capture.
  6. And more…


Today I replaced broken glass for my Samsung Galaxy S3. It took about 2 hours without any hurry. Now my S3 looks almost like a new 🙂

Mobile phone with more than two weeks battery life — Nokia X1-01 unboxing

Just bought mobile phone Nokia X1-01 with more than two weeks battery life. I do not believe that battery will last all 43 days, but who knows. Today is the second day and phone is still showing battery Full bars. Currently testing it with one SIM card.

Phone model is from mid 2011, and some shops stopped selling this model recently, so this may be a sign that phone will be discontinued soon.

I need a spare phone with excellent stand-by battery life. First looked at the famous Philips 9@9 series, but couldn’t get one in the timely manner.

And one more thing. If you are using smartphone daily, like Android, then it may be a little difficult to configure this archaistic phone’s interface 🙂

Below photos of Nokia X1-01 unboxing.
