Cell Phone LCD Screens for Samsung Galaxy S III

Like any other Galaxy smartphone, cell phone LCD screens for Samsung Galaxy S III phones may crack or stop working from use, impact, or age. Buying your own replacement S3 screen allows you to repair and replace the Galaxy screen and restore it to working order. There are many options with this product including the number of components and frame color.

What is the difference between the screen and digitizer?

While there are many screen packages that only include the screen itself, you will also find many that include a digitizer component to replace the existing one. It is important that you get the right Samsung Galaxy kit for your phone to ensure that you can properly replace it. You will not need adhesive for the repair, as there are clips on the edge of the frame to connect to the rest of the smartphone body.

  • LCD Screen: This is the unit that displays information from the Galaxy screen. It will include any graphics, colors, and text that should be displayed from websites and apps.
  • Digitizer: The Galaxy digitizer transmits analog information into digital pulses. This unit is responsible for allowing the touchscreen to respond to your touch. It is typically fused with the glass.
  • Flex Wire: This connects to the Galaxy S3 battery and allows your touch to transmit to digital information. Without this, the Galaxy S3 touchscreen would be ineffective.
Can you use other Samsung Galaxy screens for the replacement?

You should only look for replacement screens made specifically for the Samsung Galaxy S3 to ensure that it properly fits on your Samsung device. While there are several Galaxy models with similar sizing, you should not buy S3 screens for other models even if the sizes are within a fraction of an inch. The dimensions are often different and the smallest difference will prevent the Samsung screen from affixing properly.

What are the different colors you can choose from?

The color of the Samsung kit depends on which plastic frame you choose. Most kits will come with a plastic frame for connection to the Samsung Galaxy, but some kits may just come with the glass itself. As with the screen, ensure that the plastic frame is for the S3 specifically so that it fits properly around the device and that it can slip over the Samsung home button, speaker, and camera on the front of the body. You will not need adhesive for the frame.

Some of the common colors include:
