If your OnePlus 8 Pro screen is cracked, you have probably dropped the device or damaged it physically. This means that you’ll probably have to get help from somewhere else in order to have the device fixed permanently. Follow this article before you do anything when your Display Got Damaged or Screen Cracked on OnePlus 8 Pro.
If you’ve got a cracked screen, first you should assess how bad the damage is. You might be able to live with small cracks that don’t block your view too much, but larger cracks should probably be dealt with immediately. If the colors on your screen are abnormal or some pixels are no longer displaying, the damage has gone much further than the glass on top and has affected the panel beneath.

Fix, Display Got Damaged or Screen Cracked on OnePlus 8 Pro
The first thing when these things happen, backup all your important data. You have probably dropped the device or damaged it physically. This means that you’ll probably have to get help from somewhere else in order to have the device fixed permanently. This means that you can potentially lose your personal data. It is for this reason that you want to make sure your files are safe before you have the phone repaired or the screen replaced.
If you have some unsaved files that you want to salvage, the very first thing that you want to do is to check if you are still able to transfer files from your phone to another device wirelessly or via cable.
Try Tapping It
One of the remedies that you can do for a cracked screen situation is to try to see if taping the screen works. You want to do this remedy if you’re checking for some level of functionality so you can continue using the device or if you want to create a backup. Try to tape the edges of the screen to keep things together temporarily. The pressure may return some functionality of the screen and allow the digitizer to work in some capacity.
Check for Screen Insurance
In some regions, Samsung stores may offer free or discounted screen repair for a limited time. If you damaged the screen within this timeframe, you can potentially get a great discount for repair. Check the papers that come with the box to see if you have this coverage. Screen insurance is not offered in all regions so if you’re not sure, visit your local Samsung store where you get the phone from.
If your OnePlus has a cracked screen issue within the warranty period, which is one year, be sure to let OnePlus handle the issue right away. Keep in mind that screen damage is not covered by free repair provision so unless you purchased screen insurance separately, you’ll most probably shell out for the repair fee. Visit your local Samsung store or Service Center so a qualified Samsung technician can examine the hardware. If needed, they may send it in for repair or replacement.
If you don’t have access to a Samsung Service Center, you can let a third party technician check the hardware for possible other non-screen issues, and for screen replacement. Repair done by a non-Samsung technician automatically voids the warranty of your device so only do this if you’re out of options.
Some users may opt to do the repair themselves. There are a lot of videos and websites on the internet that can provide the technical steps on how to replace a broken screen. If you want to go this route, this is totally fine. Just remember though that there’s a big chance of you causing more damage to the device afterward.
