    The upper left corner of my Lumia 820’s glass screen became cracked after a fall and the lower right corner of the display is partially (and barely) viewable. From what I can tell, the touch screen remains functional. What replacement kit(s) do you recommend I buy? Thank you!

    my phone (Nokia Lumia 820) fell and screen cracked, however i can see the image clear behind. The touch screen functionality on majority of the screen does not work including the keys at the bottom (windows, back and search). Should I replace the digitizer or LCD screen? Finding a little difficulty finding separate parts.

      Hi Kay, as the screen touch not work, you’d better replace the LCD screen as it is easy to replace and find the replacement parts. You can find the Nokia Lumia 820 parts here.

      Hi, do you mean you ‘ve got the digitizer replacement only? so the LCD screen is in good condition right? Replacing the digitizer only needs professional skills, you’d better ask for professional maintainance.
