    I have a simple self repair which worked for me and does not void the warranty.

    Take a length of clear wide packing tape and carefully place it across the entire screen in line with where the screen lift is located. Very firmly pull the ends of the tape across the sides and around the back of the device so the screen is pulled back in place. Smooth any bubbles out with a credit card or something like that.

    Use the device as normal. You can leave it like that indefinitely but you will find you can remove the tape after a few weeks and the screen will stay in place. Good as new with no super glue.

    I just put my SE under the clip of a very strong clipboard, and left it there for half a day. Screen lift fixed!

    In the end I had my own fix:


    1) Run backwards while being chased on bike by my 4 year old (he seemed bored).

    2) Drop it on solid concrete path and view battle scars.

    3) Forget all about screen lift!

    My PP SE top part of screen slightly raised-img_20160126_120311.jpg

    So far, yeah. In this picture, I actually put a block of sticky notes in between the SE and the clip so as to distribute the pressure right onto the screen. I did just get the phone yesterday though, so time will tell if the screen pops back up but it looks well seated into the metal frame now with zero screen lift.

    Wouldn't a phone case help prevent the screen lifting problem?

    Ime no unless the case is extremely rigid. I have three phone case, oem hard shell for when I'm at home, a bulky rubber one from when I'm on site and a more classy leather flip case for general out and about.

    The issue I experienced was the phone chassis twisting, none of the above cases were rigid enough to prevent that happening.

    yeah use a case
    Does that help where the phone ARRIVES with a screen that already has lift at the top?

    Because a lot of Passport SEs do.

    (p.s. this info is in the thread if you read it)

    Sounds good. My guess is that these phones do not get that kind of clamp force and time spend on these screen while in production. It's not duct tape. It makes sense that this screen would need some clamp force to set properly. My att version is still perfect.

    Is this a really common issue, or what guys? I'm planning on grabbing myself a SE as the price has dropped considerably. However, the screen-lift issue is the only thing putting me off the purchase.

    What I did, which isn't for the faint hearted, is mask of the screen and body with masking tape. Use a craft blade, thin one not a stanley which is a lot thicker. Lifted up the corner of the screen just enough to get a pin between the screen and body and with a cocktail stick put a tiny amount of super glue on the corner then put a clothes peg with some cardboard to protect the glass and left for about half an hour.

    So far so good and that was a week ago. Phones under warranty and it's my second one with screen lift. Couldn't be bothered sending it back, no doubt they would have just sent me another and going by the amount of people complaining chances are that would have done it as well.
