Yes. But it’s still glass, so if you drop it the wrong way, it’ll break. As I discovered the hard way.
Given how many times I’ve dropped the many smartphones I’ve owned, I’m actually surprised that this is only the second one I’ve had break on me (the first was a Treo 600w that took a spill on a concrete floor…that one also trashed the LCD).
OK. Screen ordered from Hong Kong. Will follow up after I receive it…perhaps I’ll even do my own replacement video.
As a side note, am I the only one who finds it a little skeevy that there are multiple sellers listed for this item that are clearly the same seller? Most have very good ratings, but why operate under multiple accounts if you’re legit?
On the plus side, the last time I saw this, when I was ordering some replacement parts for one of my Syma helis, I got the parts just fine, and faster than expected. OTOH, I only had about $5 at risk on that order. This one is a little riskier. Still, I’m hopeful that it’ll all come out fine.
You may be right. It’s a reasonable enough explanation. And given the little exposure I’ve had to working with Hong Kong based dealers, it arguably fits the pattern. Still seems sketchy from a Western view, though, but I guess I should give them the benefit of the doubt.
Yup. My problem was the transition to the protective bag…would’ve been the same if it’d been a Pelican instead of a ziploc. Unless, of course, I was smart enough not to attempt the transfer while standing on a hard surface.
