Watch the youtube video it’s a lot better also instead of sending a sticker that connects the phone and the screen they should’ve added adhesive to the new screen.

Hi Jonathan,

Unlike aftermarket screens that may have adhesive pre-attached, we are an authorized Motorola reseller and sell OEM Motorola parts. In this case, the OEM screen comes without adhesive pre-attached.
