For issues caused by a broken screen/digitizer

As most user interaction with Android devices involve a , things get tricky at best if you managed to break that one: How would you e.g. unlock your device, or enter your encryption password on boot? How to recover your data before sending the device to repair? What use can such a device be if it's no longer worth being repaired – but still too valued to be simply thrown away?

From those examples you can already guess some related tags:

  • : questions dealing with the touch-screen in general
  • : questions dealing with data recovery in general

It is a good idea to combine this tag with a related tag to make things straight: using e.g. broken-screen plus data-recovery does make pretty clear where you're headed.
