Cracked the screen of my BQ Aquaris M10 tablet



  • Hello,
    I recently cracked the screen of my BQ Aquaris M10 tablet which is quite annoying (accidentally stepped on it). Finding a screen/LCD replacement is nearly impossible. Should I just buy a new BQ Aquaris M10 tablet or should I consider getting a different tablet? I still want to run a linux distro whether it be UT or Plasma Mobile but don't see anything that will run both. Plus the Aquaris M10 is still the only officially supported tablet.

    Many Thanks



  • @catalyst hi, as it seems nobody has a better answer, I only can tell you that M10 is still a great tablet for UT and you can buy it pretty cheap.

    I don't know about other options for other OS, sorry.



  • try searching EBAY



  • @advocatux I agree that the BQ Aquaris M10 is a great tablet for UT. I've looked around on ebay from time to time and never found a suitable alternative. I'm writing this reply on my M10 tablet and last night I watched UT Q&A 44 on it.



  • @catalyst Just a thought: maybe BQ could replace the broken screen. On their support page, if you select 'broken screen', they offer to contact you. You can visit www.bq.com/uk/tablets. There you can find BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition. Then you can use the support menu system to find 'broken screen'.
    Good luck!



  • Hello Catalyst,

    To my opinion this is a quality device worth fixing. I bricked my E5 phone twice and the first time i sent it back for repair to BQ. It was almost as expensive as buying a new one but they made the thing like new. They even renewed the old Ubuntu-version and the battery as far as i know. So yeah, i say fix it (and learn to not trash it again) ✌
