Mine was. I ordered a new glass kit online. I removed the old glass and installed the new one last night. It is like getting a new phone. I used the transparent LOCA uv glue.

It takes some time and patience but definitely worth the effort.

YouTube vids are great. Parts are cheap from a China. I did a S6 Edge (rounded edges) last week and will be doing another tomorrow. A heat gun, suction cup and dollar store playing cards are your friends.

I used to replace Iphone screens on the side for my friends and co workers and usually at the cost of parts. First few took some time but after you get the hang of it its really not that hard.

Haha, it's not mine. I was standing in line behind this teenager and I noticed this phone. Asked her if I could take a picture of it. She said it works just fine but she had bandages on her fingers lol.

You laugh...

"A new EWG analysis of data submitted to the Federal Communications Commission by one manufacturer shows that some cases on the market are so poorly engineered that they actually intensify the radiation that strikes a user’s head and body."

Does Your Cell Phone Case Raise Your Radiation Exposure?
Sooooo...a company who sells a case with a built-in antenna is saying other cases are bad for people.

Exactly.

But I did see something on this on W5 or Marketplace. They used a measuring device and with the case on it was way higher.

I can see it and it certainly is plausible. Now, whether the radiation is actually harmful remains to be proven conclusively. In the end, there are enough things out there that kill us that I'm not going to worry too much about cellphone signals.
