    I don’t know why people are complaining about this video, I think it is an incredible video. It shows you how to completely dissemble the LG5G with step by step instructions and helpful comments along the way. The video also doesn’t talk about the phone for half the video like so many others.. I know I don’t want to attempt this repair on my own lol

        Same here. Camera glass is shattered. The phone is in an otter box case, so I don’t really know how it happened either. The origin of the shatter is on/near the side of the center square in the camera area, and spreads to the left, across the left lens only.

          Me too I have no clue how it happened

    This is very informative. What is the tool used for heating the LG G5 to remove the screen?

    • BY Kaye

      That’s a heat gun, you can also use a hair dryer instead if you don’t have a heat gun.
