No matter how careful you are, one slightest mistake and you might drop it cracking its screen. You can replace the screen but most of the time it could worsen the problem.

Here’s how to unlock dead Android screen.

There is an easy way you can use to unlock a device with dead screen (or no screen at all). However, your device must have a HDMI port or at least support USB OTG. Every device at least has one.

Note: If your device supports HDMI, skip to step 5. If it doesn’t, you will need to buy an adapter and OTG cable.
Step 1: Plug the adapter into appropriate ports on your device.
Step 2: Plug in your mouse in the adapter’s UDB port. You will be able to use the mouse as long as the adapter is powered on.
Step 3: Plug one end of the HDMI cable in the adapter and other and into a TV or monitor. With on the TV or monitor. If you’re using a TV, stitch to the appropriate channel. You will see your device’s lock screen on the screen.
Step 4: You can now use the mouse just like you would on a computer and unlock your device.
Step 5: If your device has micro HDMI port, you don’t need the adapter. But you will need a micro HDMI to HDMI cable. Just plug both end of the HDMI cable into appropriate ports.
Step 6: Connect the mouse using a USB OTG cable.
Step 7: You can now unlock your screen.
