    Hello folks,
    My Xiaomi MI3's screen cracked by falling, the display is working just fine but touch is only partly working, the upper left side touch is working ..else is not working. I went to service center, they are asking for $127 to repair it..which I think is too much.

    display is working which means LCD is fine and touch is not working which means digitizer is not working..So I was wondering that could I replace only digitizer of device..or do I have to replace both LCD+digitizer.
    And where should I buy it.I searched LCD+digitizer on xiaomishop.com but it is of $96 while the same thing is available for $50 - $60 in other E-commerce websites like ebay, alibaba, aliexpress etc..these website says its genuine and original product so I wonder why there is this price difference?
    I should I buy these replacement part...where will I get original product?
    will dissembling and assembling by own will void warrenty?

    Ehm... You already off your warranty because you dropped the phone. Disassembling LCD frame is no easy task. You can damage the LCD trying that. You need hot air to take off the glass. It's better to replace the screen. It's about 100$.

    If it's repaired in official service centre, the warranty will be valid after the repair. But he'll have to pay for this repair. Am I right? Or phone drop cancels the warranty in full?

    Depends on shops. But usually if user pays then it's not a problem.
    For example in *******.com they will repair the phone even if it's damaged twice.

    Display+Touch is pasted by glue
    means you have to replace both.
    or other solution is
    go to local mobile repair shop
    they will deattach touch from display with hot machine or blower.
