Trouble With Your EVO 3D Screen? Learn How to Easily Change It Yourself

One of the most hands-on activities that anyone with a piece of equipment could do is to take it apart to peek at the insides. However, what could one possibly gain from doing such a thing? Well, aside from learning a bit about components, getting a clue as to how the devices actually work (and that they are in fact, not “magical” as some people will try to make you believe), and losing the overall fear of messing around with electronics, you may learn to spot what is wrong with your device. This is a very important skill if you always have devices with you and are prone to do things like bump them against tables, sit on them while having them on your back pocket, or throw them in the toilet/washing machine. Sending your device for out of warranty repairs from damage like the one previously described can in fact be costly, but what if you could do this yourself? Parts are cheap enough to make it worth your while.

However, where does one start? Surely, you will not dare opening your device without knowing what you will find beyond those 6 Torx screws, would you? You need a reliable guide and for those of you sporting the HTC EVO 3D, XDA Forum Member repairsuniverse has you covered. His dismantling guide can be used to learn about the insides of the 3D as well as teaching you the ins and outs of changing your screen and digitizer, among other parts that should be intuitive from following the guide.

Please ensure that you have all the necessary tools in order to carry out this delicate operation. The right tools will ensure that you don’t mistakenly damage your device. So, please follow every step carefully and most importantly… have fun!

You can find more information in the guide thread.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
