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.
Just don't drop your phone. How hard can it be? Okay, hard considering the amount of cracked displays you can count on the average day in a public area but still.
Not much of a surprise as most Amoled screen replacement are pricey then lcd/IPS screen replacement...
S8+ screen repair=EUR250
S7 edge screen repair=EUR200
S6 edge screen repair=$200/EUR183
Fair enough, judging that the screen size is bigger on S8. Hey, even a tablet screen repair can cost over $600. Size match the price.
The screen is very bad because of the gigantic reflections/glares caused by the, expensive, curves! Curved screen edges are both expensive and makes the viewable/usable screen area a lot smaller because of reflections/glares! To me S8 is a total fail!
k0l9, 26 Apr 2017The Galaxy S8 costs Samsung $301.60 in materials Material only.
It was easily predictable that it will definitely cost not a bit. Ohh quite pricey.
Super Amoled most expensive phone screen in the market and still burn in and didn't show good white. Used to own S7 edge break my screen and it does cost me around 200$+ for replacement, iPhone and Lg IPS cost only 150$.
S3mm, 26 Apr 2017Funny~ The screen itself cost almost 2/3 the price of Xiaomi Mi6or 2/3 of Oneplus 3T :)
250 euros for a screen replacement? better stick with a more durable phone :))))
