BLU ENERGY X 2 LCD & TOUCH PANEL GOLD. MODEL E050.
Posted by Unknown on 30th Aug 2016
The part is precisely what I needed to replace the shattered screen of my daughter's Energy X2. It arrived in a timely basis and was well protected in the packaging.
The only thing I'd like to see that would make this 5 stars is some documentation. Blu won't provide guidance or service manuals to you, iFixit hasn't torn this down yet to replace the screen, and so you're hacking your way through it. If you're not comfortable breaking new ground, I would not try replacing this part on your own. The breakdown on this phone is not simple, and if you aren't exceedingly careful, you'll destroy the adhesive strip which actually holds the screen to the phone body itself, and that isn't provided in the kit -- it's just the screen with the appropriate ribbon cables attached to it. Providing that adhesive strip would have for sure made this a 5 star review even without documentation.
Getting this phone apart IS NOT EASY. If you don't have a variety of spudgers/separators of varying thicknesses, you might not get the screen separated from the body. One thing that helped me was the fact the screen was shattered, so I didn't much care about preserving it, and was able to push a piece away from the body around the camera hole, which then enabled me to start pulling the rest of the broken glass away. It was not a pleasant repair to say the least, and it took me almost 2 hours to carefully remove the glass from the adhesive strip so as to not tear it all away from the frame.
Once tear-down was down, attaching the screen and re-assembling was a 5 minute or so job.
Great experience, and I'm glad I found this site for all the other Blu phones my kids own. Wish I'd found it sooner :-).
