An electrostatic discharge (ESD) to a display screen may lead to sparking into the phone's structure, e.g., via the glue that connects the different glass layers of the touching panel/LCD, or it may just cause surface charging. The latter is the most likely case for a well-designed display, as the insulation design usually prevents any sparking to the… CONTINUE READING
