LG K30 has a curved edged 2.5D glass display with no Gorilla Glass or Panda King Screen Protection. A curved edge screen is more prone to damage than a flat one. So, it’s better to use K30 with a screen protector and case.
However, if your K30 glass or LCD is already damaged then the only solution is the screen replacement. A phone screen is made up of 3 parts. The outer glass, touchscreen digitizer and the inner LCD.
