I thought this may be of interest...
My GN2 fell out of my pocked onto the concrete.

I was less then pleased!
It still works, so I thought I'd try masking it off and spraying it with clear varnish to hold all the glass bits together.
Getting an even coverage was a problem as the spray was beading, even after the screen was cleaned with Acetone.

It looks like it may be successful.

The case it had just perished and fell to bits. This cover is not available as the phone has an extended battery so standard cases do not fit.
I'll try to draw a new one and 3D print it in flexible filament.

This will be interesting to see how it holds up.

Everyone should pull a smartphone apart at least once in their life...
They are not the easiest thing to work on! I was hoping to not delve into another one.

Thanks for the link :)
I've just ordered one. It will also be interesting to see if I can get the old glass off the display now it is had the clear spray applied!
