The fourth generation of Samsung’s Galaxy Note line is easily one the best devices to come from the South Korean manufacture. That being said, it isn’t free from it’s own set of problems. We’ve included below a few of the most common problems with the Note 4 and how to take care of them.
With a bigger screen comes more opportunity to damage it. There are typically two types of screen repairs on the Galaxy Note 4. Either the LCD is damaged (there are black lines, discoloration, or no display at all), or only the top glass is broken. Unfortunately, a bigger screen also comes with a bigger price tag. If you’ve only broken the top glass, however, then you’re in luck. The top layer of the screen can be replaced independently from the lower LCD which is the expensive part. This means a lower cost repair for you. One thing to watch out for is a too-good-to-be-true low price repair on the screen. From the factory, there is a layer of glue between the LCD and top glass that must be replaced for a good quality and operational fix. If the layer of glue is not replaced you will experience a loss of touch functionality and a poor quality finish. At My Broken Phone, we replace the necessary glue to give you the best repair possible.
Samsung devices have two capacitive buttons at the bottom of the screen on either side of the home button. On previous devices the left side was a menu button and the right side a back button. On the Note 4 and all newer Galaxies, the left menu button was replaced with a recent apps button. If you’re unable to find a menu button built into the application you’re using, you can long press the recent apps button to bring up the menu.
Due to the protruding design of the Note 4’s rear camera, it is very easy to shatter the lens. If you’ve broken the rear camera lens on your Note 4, bring it by your local My Broken Phone repair center to have it replaced quickly and at a low cost. In most cases, only the camera lens is broken but, sometimes the camera will also need to be replaced. This repair tends to cost a little higher than just the camera glass and can take a little more time but, rest assured, it can still be repaired.
Many of Samsung’s Galaxy S and Note series devices use what’s known as an AMOLED screen. In this type of display, the LCD and digitizer are fused together, allowing a thin and high quality touch screen. If you’ve ever broken the glass on a Galaxy device, you may have noticed that you were still able to use the phone as usual. This is because the top layer of glass is not a hardware component of the phone; it’s simply a sheet of glass glued to the LCD display.
If your shattered Samsung AMOLED screen functions properly, you will find two choices when searching repair options.
At My Broken Phone, our skilled technicians can carefully remove and replace only the top layer of glass without damaging the expensive and fragile LCD screen beneath. This allows us to repair your Galaxy device at an exceptionally low price.
Rather than separating the glass from the screen underneath, we can also replace the entire “assembly” – the LCD, digitizer, and top glass unit. This process results in a factory quality repair which will avoid common issues with the glass only option. If your Galaxy S screen doesn’t operate correctly after incurring damage, you may need to have the full assembly replaced even if the top glass isn’t broken.
