I'm doing a raynipper here...
Messed up my Honor 8x.
The other day it started to play up on me with the 3 key activated if I hovered anywhere near it (literally hovered, not even touching the screen - it would throw up umpteen 3's on the screen.) You can imagine how difficult texting was when the e is right below the 3.
SIL suggested removing the screen protector and that seemed to do the trick. However, I knew it was only a matter of time before the phone screen got banjaxed with no protection. So ordered 1 online and it was here very quickly. Fitted it this morning and, unlike any previous protector, it came with a tiny phial of UV glue to seal the edges when the phone has rounded edges n the screen protector overhangs.
I should have gone with my gut instinct that this wasn't a good idea. I've ended up with a screen that's 'see through' in the bottom corner with a radiating darkness out from there.
I did a very rapid backup in case the innards completely glued up but it turns out it's not much of a glue at all - more like water-thin oil. I don't suppose it'll do any good but it's resting in a bag of rice at the moment.
I'm lucky to have the Redmi as backup but what a faff getting it all up n running again, needing a micro insert to support the nano sim, getting WhatsApp going again as a minimum for keeping in touch with family. And the keyboard is TINY!
So I take back all my flippant comments Ray - I'm feeling the pain today!!
