The Galaxy S8+ is one gorgeous device and that Infinity screen plays no small part in that. However, it's also a very expensive piece so you'd better be careful with it - the replacements are going to be more expensive than ever.
If you manage to break it, replacing the display at an authorized repair center will set you back €250. That is 25% higher than the Galaxy S7 edge where the screen cost €200 to be replaced.
This means you should form a firmer grip or a invest in a nice case because sometimes the Gorilla Glass 5 won't be enough. And if you are particularly clumsy, you might want to buy into in one of those insurance programs.
the gorilla glass is a joke. anyone who has s8+ MUST buy a screen protector + case. my phn dropped from a height of 1 feet.. and cracked up like an ass. so disappointing !!
prices are the same in USA. And yes they "can" replace it, that just doesn't guarantee that you wouldn't have touch problems. thats according to Samsung
Samsung has no problem doing it in Australia. http://www.samsung.com/au/support/screenreplacements/
