The LG Nexus 5X featured with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 equips with a fingerprint reader on the back and a Type-C USB charger port. However, what should we do if we drop the phone and crack the Nexus 5X screen? Let’s take a look:
1. Power off the LG Nexus 5X and remove the SIM card tray.
2. Insert a pry, run it along the edges to release the LG Nexus 5X back cover.
3. Undo the 10 screws in the rear housing and loudspeaker module.
4. Remove the Nexus 5X loudspeaker module.
5. Remove the LG Nexus 5X rear housing.
6. Pry up to release the fingerprint reader if needed.
7. Pry up the battery flex ribbon connector, and the Nexus 5X battery as there’s a few adhesive underneath.
8. Pry up the connector to release the Nexus 5X rear facing camera.
9. Pry up the connector to release the Nexus 5X front facing camera.
10. Remove the Nexus 5X motherboard, this USB Type-C charger port is assembled with the motherboard in one unit and is not that easily removed as soldering skills are required.
11. Remove the Nexus 5X earphone jack.
Now, all the removable parts have been removed, reassemble the device with a new LG Nexus 5X LCD and digitizer with frame replacement in reverse order.
