Cracked screen
Meizu Pro 5

Are there any wholesale websites I can buy parts for the Meizu Pro 5? I have cracked my screen, it still works, just the glass is cracked. As I am in the UK, I don’t want to send it to Meizu, as I didn’t actually buy it from them.

That’s a real bummer. I think the devices is too new to already have replacement parts… that are sold for a reasonable price.

Try to contact Meizu and at least ask how much it would cost, if they are willing to do it. Try Meizu Italy, or the old meizumart support email.

Searched on Ebay and just found those two, and I consider $113 a lot of a money.

Found nothing useful on Aliexpress.

Would this be a wise purchase if I could find a repair shop to replace just the glass? http://www.parts4repair.com/front-glass-oem-for-meizu-pro-5-black/

@dankeogh As far as I know it’s a OGS a one glass screen. So not sure if you can do it.
But never did it, so don’t know.

@smarq honorbuy charges 24$ for shipping, that’s insane.

@Ultrametric i know but i cant found it any where else and sometimes pay little more could be a good decision (or not) Honorbuy didnt pay me nothing and didnt asks me to share publicity, i only do it because they send me my Pro5 in only 2 days… And for that its awesome!

You can try, but in my experience all the repair shop workers either pretend to be stupid or are stupid, so it might be hard to find someone who will want to do it.
But if you can find one I would try since the amoled replacement displays are always very expensive.

Reopening this thread.
I’ve tried many repair shops, and none of them have ever heard of the phone (surprisingly) and are not willing to replace the glass. I’ve tried myself, but I can’t get the glue anywhere near hot enough. I’m gonna have to fork out for a new LCD unit, but I have a question. What screws does the Pro 5 use on the bottom? They look like Torx screws to me but I can’t seem to figure it out.
Thanks for all your help so far on this thread, however my efforts have been in vain so far. :(

@smarq Yeah some people like to buy from Honorbuy… The shop is super expensive for a Chinese Re-seller, there are cheaper Chinese re-seller that do the same for less money.

Even Amazon is, or the amazon marketplace. And of course is aliexpress cheaper.
If you put in effort and 5 minutes of your life time, you have no trouble to find stuff.

I have the part and the old screen has come off, but the new screen does not have the bezel, like shown here.

Is there any way I can transfer this over to the new one?

Greetings!

As I also manage to crack the screen by dropping the phone from 60 cm onto a wooden floor, Im curious if you got the “bezel issue” sorted?

I got my eyes on the same pieces you order but if it is a hazzle to get it together I try to find another solution.

So was the old frame transferable?

Best regards!

@s-flow I just gave up in the end. You need a heat gun and epoxy glue and loads of stuff that most people wouldn’t have the time or money to pursue. I just gave up and refunded it, and tried to find somewhere that sells the screen in white with the bezel attached.

Looks like your connection to Meizufans was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
