Anyone attempting to replace or repair the screen of their Samsung phone will learn that it has three main components. They are the following:
- Glass: The outermost layer of the screen is made of glass. It is less than 1 mm in thickness, and it protects the other layers from external elements.
- Digitizer: Located under the glass layer, the digitizer provides the electrical force that reacts to your touch, providing data input to the devices center. If your device is not responding to touch, it is likely due to a problem with its digitizer.
- LCD: An acronym for liquid crystal display, the LCD provides the signals that create the visual display on the screen. If there are problems with the display of your device, it is likely that it is due to damage to its LCD component.
