smashed phone screen

10
Found 6th Mar
I have a Xiaomi Note 4X, which is less than 1 year old, bought via Aliexpress. Dropped it and (very unfortunately) hit between the glass protector and the actual screen, the phone screen smashed (but the phone works just fine)
Any way to have it repaired? Looked on youtube - toothpaste, oil, windshield repair... none really work.
1. Is there a cheap way to DIY?
2. any shop can do Xiaomi (at reasonable price)?
Many thanks2905027-i90EO.jpg

Watch the video, if you feel confident you could do it yourself, if your slow and careful.

Replacement screens can be bought of eBay, I’d recommend buying the more expensive one with the full housing on it.

Also worth getting the tools, they can be cheap and make the work so much easier.

Good luck!

Screens are cheap for about £20, should be plenty of guides to fix it.
I was going to say, you have taken the protector off haven't you? The number of times I've seen people say they have smashed their phones and it's fine under the protector. But it does look like there are cracks round the edge

seen on ebay - is the 'frame' needed? or just the 'DigitizerTouch Screen + LCD Display' would do?

Unfortunately, the film is off - in fact the film seems okay but the screen.....

I think the screens with the frame will make your life much much easier, especially if it’s your first time attempting to fix a phone.

sorry for the ignorant - first time breaking a phone

the exact model I have is (3GB/32GB):
aliexpress.com/ite…a27

would one of these be suitable (stated 4GB/64GB)?
ebay.co.uk/itm…SRr

Or could any of you help me with a link? Thanks
