How hard or easy is to replace the LCD (w/digitalizer)?

Digitalizer is broken, I know that it is really hard to replace only the digitalizer and I will buy the combo (screen + dig) but I want to know if it is hard to replace.

Also, my Lumia 1520 is the 16GB AT&T model... Any advice before buying?

Not that difficult. Look up a few videos on the internet before you order the parts and decide that DIY is the way to go. Good luck.

Thanks! I will not do the replace process, I will only buy the parts and a friend will help (he is working repairing phones).

I broke my screen (only the glass, then later the digitizer also stopped workinng).
I did not want to mess around with it, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who isn't a phone repair guy. It's tricky, and you can easily mess things up.

What about the screen from HK and so? I've read bad reviews from amazon customers. Can I trust eBay for the screen replacement? Should I buy the OEM (original) screen?

i payed my screen (full display+digitizer+glass n everything) 160€
i think it's not 100% original, and i thing that costs around 200+
however you should be good even with the lower cost one
