    I would have gladly paid Sony to fix it properly. As it was it cost 1/3 if the cost to replace it just to replace the screen.

There was only a single hairline crack but it was enough to render the touch digitizer useless.

    I tried Sony to see if they could repair it but they basically told me "tough shit" after explaining "we don't currently offer any out-of-warranty repairs" for any price.

    Shit. So I weighed repairing it myself against finding a third party and with the recommendations of my IT coworkers got quotes from a few local repair companies. This turned out to be a mistake.

    Some would not touch Xperias. The one that I settled with had decent reviews and offered to get the part by courier and repair it the same day for a better price. "Nice" I thought...

    Just picked up the phone. The bezel is all chewed up, the display isn't seated evenly, one of the speaker holes looks to be partially filled with adhesive, light comes through the seam, and there are now a few pressure points behind the LCD. I think the tech only used a metal (not plastic) spluger, no heat gun and just went to town. He specifically said he did not use a suction cup to remove the screen (like every guide ever recommends to reduce damage). When I brought up my complaints he offered to do it again with even more adhesive tape.

    Not sure if I just need to accept this as the best quality of repair I can expect, ask for a refund, replace the phone... ack.. This sucks.
    Warranties are for 1 yr atleast....or so I thought. 2 years if you took extended warranty.

    Could be worse. Could be used as fleshlight.

    I'm sure there's an app for that .

    They wonít cover the screen repair since it was due to an accident. When I talk to support about these things Iím purposely ambiguous about how damage happens but this one Sony contact didnít doubt it was dropped. I just found it particularly odd that they wonít repair it for cost.

    I ďlet the adhesive sitĒ for over a day like the repair company recommended and found that the edge of the display had actually lifted even further - enough that I can get my nail underneath and lift the whole thing. At least that fact will make doing the repair properly myself easier.

    Ordered the proper OEM adhesive gaskets for like $2 each. Going to go back to the repair company to demand a refund for their shoddy work and damage to the frame.

    Could be worse, the app could freeze.
