    This is a review of my experience with a FixEZ.com display screen repair/replacement kit.

     

    Recently, one of our Nokia Lumia 1020’s display screen was severely damaged. Dave has said in RESET that later in 2017 some major hardware would be coming out for cell phones so I didn’t want to replace our trusted 1020’s until later in the year when I had a chance to check out the new hardware.

     

    I found a kit available on-line from FixEZ.com to replace the “Nokia Lumia 1020 Display Assembly with Frame” at $67.50 so I ordered.   FixEZ also had a Nokia Lumia 1020 Display Assembly for $54.99 but I felt the Display Assembly with Frame was worth the extra cost by freeing me of the effort to separate my broken Display from the existing frame for reuse. FixEZ.com also has a wide assortment of supplies and I decided to also order their “Nylon Spudger” and their “Fine Tip Curved Tweezers”. A “Plastic Triangle Opening Tool” was included with the kit. I already had other materials that I needed.

     

    I was very impressed with FixEZ’s customer service, I ordered the kit on a Thursday afternoon and it was shipped shortly after my order. The kit arrived at my house two days later on Saturday and I did the replacement on Sunday.

    Bottom line: the repaired Lumia 1020 looks & works like new. I had a very good experience with FixEZ.com’s Nokia Lumia 1020 Display Assembly repair kit that was leveraged with great customer service and very useful Screen Repair & Disassemble video and Disassemble Guide. FixEZ.com has a variety of parts and tools to repair many different devices.

    • Let's start small with the definition. If you know about podcasts already you can skip ahead.  
       
      What is a podcast?  There is no set definition but in general a podcast is a voice recording on a subject that you can usually listen to however and whenever you want.  Let's break these down a little bit and that will also help define the term for you.

    • Here is something that wasn't planned but came to me while I was at Unveiled.  The Unveiled event was a little lackluster so I had a little fun with the DJI Osmo Pocket.  Take a look.

    • TP-Link's Wi-Fi 6 Routers
      I talked with TP-Link about their AX series routers.  The Deco X10 is a Tri-Band mesh router that will come in a pack of two for $350.  I was told Q3 for release but if that sounds like a long time don't forget that we don't have anything that will talk with the AX standard yet.  
      It's a good looking box that I hope will perform well and have plenty of features.  I've read good things about the Deco series and there were a few good sales last year on the M5.  I really should test the M5!
       

       
      Here it is.  Yes, it's huge! Not a hockey puck like the M5 is.  What do you think?
