The Samsung G600 is a mobile phone with a sliding screen that retracts to reveal a keypad. Becuse the front screen is exposed to the elements, there is always the risk of damage. And because this phone has exterior moving parts, that means disassembly can be tricky if you want to replace a damaged screen. With a little time and patience it's possible for you to replace the screen yourself.
