Can I skip the display adhesive?

I broke the screen on my P6a, and I have the fix kit coming; however, I am wondering if I can skip the display adhesive and just clip it in on the 6a, seeing there are clips to have serviceability (at the expense of the IP rating, which I threw out the window anyway by dropping it and will fully void doing the repair).

Has anyone done this without adhesive at the expense of the IP rating? Since I got the phone used, I trusted the IP rating like a fart anyway. It's gone now anyway.

Hi Nick,

Yes, you can certainly use it without the adhesive, keeping in mind if you drop it the screen will most likely pop off; you're already well aware of the waterproof aspect, but don't forget about dust, pocket lint, etc.

If you can pick up a full body phone cover locally on the cheap, that would be a good way to mitigate those issues until you can do the actual screen replacement and reseal it.

I've let my grandson use his iPhone X without adhesive temporarily while I waited for parts; the difference there is that iPhones have those Pentalobe mounting screws that do an excellent job of keeping the screen on even without adhesive.

But yeah, I personally would go ahead and use the phone without the glue if I was in your position, especially knowing it's only temporary.

Plus being a used phone the IP rating was already unreliable. About the only thing it keeps out once you taint it is dust. I'd be totally hesitant to trust a kid with fully voided liquid resistance, but on adult owned devices we know the phones need to be babied, even if it means hiding under a gutter on the phone.

Never, ever trust the IP rating is good if you were not the first owner unless you personally had it repaired by the manufacturer.
