Moment - Indestructible....sort of..

I dropped my Moment face down on a cement patio......needless to say the screen shattered. However, to my disbelief every function of the touch screen and the light sensors still work 100%!!!! So when most of the time your without a phone when you break the screen mine is still ticking. PROPS for that design! At least I can still do business while I wait for insurance replacement!

Re: Moment - Indestructible....sort of..

Seems the reason is because the AMOLED and the touch part of the phone are two different components...

Re: Moment - Indestructible....sort of..

you could at least give me a THANKS!

So are you still going to get the replacement or are you going for the replacement parts?

Just harassing you about the Thanks, I'll take one though!
Yeah you should have come to the forum before you insured it, that's if you wanted to go that route... would have been interesting to see pictures and step by step tear down and installation of the parts!

Doesn't look like I need any special tools other than a very small set of screw drivers. Had a friend pop in from DC so I'm busy this evening. Tomorrow off work again so maybe an update tomorrow.

Re: Moment - Indestructible....sort of..

It's because of the capacitive touchscreen. The same thing will happen on a Hero. If the screen cracks, you will still be able to operate it as long as it is somewhat intact.
