Sick of people whinging about the cost of phones.
You want great looking devices, minimal bezels, curved edges etc etc.. then you complain when they aren't as robust and cost a lot to buy/fix.
It's like complaining about a Porsche because it costs lots to repair and doesn't handle rough roads that well.
Iphonesh , 26 Apr 2017Super Amoled most expensive phone screen in the market and still burn in and didn't show good ... moreCan you advice on replacement? I broke my edge 7 and now can guarantee that replacing will not create more problems including Samsung! And it will cost me around 300. Did you face any issues?
Insurance!? Do NOT. My Edge 7 broke in my pock ( I guess someone hit me with something). After 17 years of using cell phones it's my first one to crack. I usually throw them out looking nearly new. I went and activated insurance through ATT and stopped it in less than a month. Why? $11 per month, deductible $225 and they will replace it with mostly a refurbished phone. NOT WORTH IT. No one can safely just change the screen as it could mess a lot of other stuff. Keep up the great work Sami!! I would save my money for Note 8 and pay it then as a difference to get it.
Im using an iPhone 4. u can imagine that im using it as a feature phone. So irritating but whats more irritating is that even Sami itself can't guarantee replacing the screen without other problems happening!!
For better protection use crystalusion for your devices
It is much more better than tempered glass
Funny, i had my edge 7 screen replaced recently by an authorized service centre and it cost 390 Â€, fortunately my insurance covered it. To be honest, they replaced the screen together with alumniium frame and several smaller electronics inside but still, hard to beat that price.
Original-Jamaican, 26 Apr 2017To Iphonesh: I have a S5 for 2 years 6 months. There's NO burn in, no crack and no scratch.... moreyou have s5 which is flat screen. try to use any edge screen, s6 edge s7 edge etc and drop it, instant screen crack. i have seen many ppl cracked their edge from accidentally drop. samsung know how to make money.
I'm using a Galaxy S6 edge from 2 years, no case, no cover yeah I've a screen protector,but that's it. Dropped the phone few times on concrete but I really didn't get a single scratch even. You need a serious accident to break this display,in that case you'd be paying more than $250 even.

My S7 front glass is broken after 2 months of normal use.
I have had several phones last 10 years and this is the most fragile phone.
The glass is the worse election.
My next phone won't be a glass phone, metallic or plastic
Hephaestus8, 26 Apr 2017Let me guess. Its a Zuk Z2. Or Mi5 or LeEco Lemax 2...
There's some powerful snap820 phones with 4GB ram, good aluminum builds for around 200-300.
Replace screen? That's what poor people do. Samsung users all love overpaying for stuff, they will just buy a new phone to replace broken screen and outdated Android

Ooooo... So expensive thats why I'm buying the alcantara case... So nice👌
Fábio , 26 Apr 2017S8 screen repair cost more than my SD 820 phone! Let me guess. Its a Zuk Z2.
just one more story here trying to put you off buying an S8. Would've had more respect if they had just said"please don't buy this,please buy an iphone .we're paid to say that." Instad of a million little snipes. Like the lew iphone will costone dollar to replace eh.
