iPhone Screen to Buy -

Thanks to my girlfriend dropping her phone on the sidewalk and shattering the screen, I'm going to do a video on how to fix a broken iPhone 5 screen (thanks Christy!). I've seen a few of these videos online but noticed a bit of a gap in the information that I'd like to address in my tutorial; they're incomplete. Let me explain.

There are two different types of replacement screens for the iPhone 5, one that has all of the parts that are normally attached to the screen included (earpiece, home button, etc.), and one that, simply put, doesn't. I HIGHLY recommend buying the more complete one as it's usually only $30 more or so and makes the repair process WAY faster. This is what most tutorial videos on repairing the screen usually show: a simple undoing of the old screen and reconnecting of the new one. This process can take less than 3 minutes (depending how angry you get at the prying off of the screen, and how long that temper tantrum might take you to calm down from). Instead of showing that today though, I figured I'd show the complete replacement, home button and all.

Maybe you want to save the $30, maybe you can't find the complete kit from someplace other than shady Chinese websites, or maybe you like a challenge? Regardless, there is a way to do it and it can be done still relatively easily. Here's how:
