Relieved to find a replacement for my cracked lens as had only recently bought the G5 and was sad I couldn't use the camera anymore. This part fits perfectly, is fairly easy to fit and excellent value. Make sure you get every last bit of broken glass and adhesive out of the circular recess first. Heating the area gently (hairdryer, heat gun etc) softens the old adhesive and makes this easier. After getting all the bits out with tweezers I then cleaned the recess with alcohol to remove any residue. £5 (inc delivery) and 15 mins later I have the phone back into shape, thanks Replace Base!
So I got a new Moto G5 as a xmas pressie. Laid it down on the granite work surface in the kitchen and the camera glass cracked. Didn't slam it down. Didn't drop it. Just placed it down. And it cracked right across between the camera lens and the flash. I'd only had it a day. Oh dear I thought. What to do. It still took pictures OK but that crack was annoying. So I took the plunge and bought a replacement . After looking around at You Tube and various other places I decided not to follow the advice. I didn't heat the area up or smash the glass to smithereens to get it out. I quite simply got a sharp pair of tweezers and a scalpel and dug in to get a start. Then I used a pair of mini needle nosed pliers to grab the glass and peeled it away. It came off no problem. Like a sardine tin. Including all of the adhesive backing. I then discovered the reason why the glass had actually cracked. There is a metal plate pressed in and around the lens and flash unit that had a raised area where it hadn't been pressed home properly. Installed by machine no doubt. The glass would have been touching that raised area and the slightest pressure cracked it. So I pressed it home properly with the end of the pliers. After a trial fit of the new glass , which is OEM and had exactly the same marking underneath as the old one, I peeled off the backing paper to the adhesive and set it down. The adhesive didn't take so I replaced the back of the phone lined everything up, placed a damp cloth on the back and used a heat gun on the glass for 10 secs just to flash it off. It worked. Everything now looks like new and I can honestly say that you would never know. Cheers Replace Base
