Screen dying already?
(05-10-2021, 12:45 PM)RudderDuck Wrote: It never suffered water damage but sometimes use it when having bath Blush . I do think it started after that, so it may be humidity related. Almost switching to it as daily driver, I would say using it 5 out of 7 days as main phone. I'm happy that it is fairly affordable to replace, hoping it isn't too much of a job to replace screen.

I don't think that using or storing a PinePhone in an area with elevated air humidity, but with no actual water ingress, should trigger degradation of the glue that bonds the screen.  However, I'm really not an expert when it comes to different kinds of glue. Smile

There are some videos and instructions on how to take the PinePhone apart and put it back together in the Pine64 wiki.  I haven't done that myself (yet), but it should be rather straightforward, requiring use of some basic tools.
