The phone I just tried to fix had two digitizer connectors just like the one in this procedure, but all the replacement parts I can find on ebay and aliexpress etc. which claim to be for XT1601 - XT1609 have just a single connector. Any thoughts about why that would be?
I’ve just wrapped up an abortive attempt to replace the screen on a friend’s G4 Play. It was aborted because the screen I bought off of ebay has only one digitizer connection on the upper left of the screen but my friend’s model has the two connections pictured in step 4 of this procedure. I can’t find an XT1601 screen on ebay or aliexpress or anywhere else that sports the twin connectors. What model of phone was this? Any clues on how to track this down?
Man, what does a company have to do to get a 9? Make the phone out of Lego? I'm hoping that there was some internal debate about whether the phone merited a higher score. I don't honestly see the fused display as a problem any more than I see the fact that components are soldered onto the mainboard rather than pressed; those two pieces need each other for strength.
