How to replace the screen on your HTC One S

So you bought a shiny new HTC One S, and then you dropped it down two flights of stairs. Or your best friend accidentally ran it over in his car. (Both of these have happened to me with previous phones.)

What are you going to do now that the screen has shattered into several thousand tiny pieces? Luckily, you don’t actually have to go out and buy a new phone; just replace the screen!

The video above offers us the first glimpse (that I know of, anyway) into the inner-workings of the One S. I am by no means a do-it-yourself kind of guy, but it’s still really interesting to me to see what’s inside one of HTC’s flagship devices, especially one that packs so much into such a tiny space, like the One S does.

Still, even with this helpful video, I doubt I’d see myself attempting this on my own. I’d be the sucker who just ponies up the cash for a replacement, or spends too much getting someone else to repair it for me. Oh, well; at least I wouldn’t have to worry about putting it back together again once it’s been taken apart!
