DIY Honor 4C earpiece and Screen replacement

Finally, fixed my phone’s screen and broken earpiece. This is a continuation of my previous post (Disassembling my Honor 4C ) where I dismantled my old bae – Honor 4c and this is my first DIY phone repair.

Here is the repair log:

So, I bought the display and the touch screen digitizer from ebay and it got shipped in a week.

While trying to replace the screen, I accidentally damaged the earpiece (located on the top of the phone) as I pulled it out the wrong way.

The red rectangle shown below is the location of the earpiece(next to the secondary camera):

Well, that didn’t go as planned 🙁

Then, I did weeks of research trying to source the earpiece for the Honor 4c online but the earpiece was not available anywhere. Finally, I found it on aliexpress for $4.53 (Link) which was a good deal (including shipping from China).

I got the earpiece delivered in 1 month. It was actually pretty fast shipping considering it was shipped from another country and cleared customs in my country which usually takes a long time. Infact, this is my first item that I purchased from China and from aliexpress.

Dismantled the phone (again), fixed the earpiece, and mounted the display. And here comes the moment of truth!!!

Honor 4c is Booottttiinnnnnngg!! :D

Booot was successful. 

Tested primary and secondary camera, wifi and earpiece and it was all back to normal. 🙂


Well, this project had its ups and downs, took long to complete but am am happy that I completed it.



Nokia 3310 refresh will be re-launched this month at MWC 2017

Nokia is set to re-launch the iconic Nokia 3310 this month. It was one of the best phones back in 2000 & was built like a TANK! Remember the epic snake game? 🙂 The snake game that came pre-installed in this phone was so popular that you can even downloaded and play it today on your Android/Apple phones.

The phone is set to be launched at about $62 (USD) and will be revealed in MWC 2017 which is happening this month. If you are wondering, didn’t Nokia stop selling phones? Well, it was sold to another Finnish company “HMD Global” that bought rights to the “Nokia” brand.

Personally, I would love to get hands on one of these, wouldn’t you? Daymm, it would feel so retro! 🙂

Here are few hilarious memes about the indestructible Nokia 3310 that will get you laughing hard.
