Apple's iPhone X, the iPhone 8, Google's Pixel 4, and the Samsung Galaxy S10 are among the latest smartphones to feature glass screens, an elegant design that is modern and elegant. Glass backs have several performance advantages, such as wireless charging, but the primary reason these tech giants are choosing glass for their rear displays instead of traditional metal or plastic is to add style. The price of luxurious-looking glass phones is high. Drops and regular wear and tear usually lead to scratched, peeled, or broken back glass.

Your Go-To Guide for Managing Cracked Glass Backs

Check out our go-to guide for answers to all of your most frequently asked questions about back glass replacement.

Do I need to replace my cell phone’s cracked back glass?

You may be considering whether you need to replace your broken back glass if your device has broken back glass. Although cracked back glass isn't pretty, it won't affect your ability to text, call, or scroll through social media; however, it can lead to cuts and scratches on your hands over time. As the glass begins to fall off, large chunks may fall off, exposing internal components.

If you see only minor scratches on your phone's back, you may be able to leave it as-is; however, consider getting a phone case or installing tempered glass backing to prevent further damage.

You have several options to choose from when you need Samsung Galaxy, Google Pixel, or iPhone back glass repair services. If your device is under warranty through AppleCare, your manufacturer, or your carrier, contact the warranty provider for details. While warranty repairs may be less expensive, you may be without your device for a few days as the Apple Store or other providers may have to ship your device to a repair center.

DIY back glass repair is another option. This may save you a few bucks, but we recommend leaving repairs to the professionals. If done improperly, you may cause more damage to your gadget than you started out with, especially to the rear camera housing.
