Friends, my Samsung s8’s screen unfortunately got a crack on the left side (near volume buttons) and I called Samsung who are saying cost of screen replacement is 11k plus GST!! I barely managed to afford the phone during FK sale 1.5yrs ago, and can’t spend this much on screen replacement. Can someone please suggest any cheaper and good options to replace screen?


Thanks in advance.

I am not sure if cheaper chinese replacements are available for S8, even those will not be cheap if available. And S8 being 3 generations old now, it doesnt make sense to spend so much on its screen replacement, irrespective of whether u can or not.
So best option is to may be use it as long as u can, if its still usable, and then sell it off as it is, obviously wont go for much. And buy another device.

Check in OLX and other second hand market sites.. you might see S8 dead phone being sold for a pittance. Buy it and use it as donor device. Risks are there that the screen might have also gone dead. So buy carefully.

where do u live in mumbai?
in Andheri there is a place called Boney Plaza, near metro bridge on SV Road.
There they can fix any kind of phone, my friend has got his water damaged phone fixed and that particular model wasnt even launched in India.
For screens you will have 3 options, cheap replica, oem and original, cost will vary between 3k-6k
