Hi all, I dropped and cracked the screen of my phone recently (Samsung 5III). Any suggestions of a good, reasonably priced repair shop locally or otherwise? Many thanks and best wishes for the New Year
There is a Samsung shop in the Surrey keys shopping centre and they quoted me £120 to replace the screen on my galaxy S3. I asked around other places and the estimate was about the same. There is also a phone cover stand under the escalator in the centre. They quoted me £110.
£120 is about the going rate.
Samsung phones need the entire phone front complete with the digitizer and LCD bonded together.
The Samsung shop is your best bet, their guarantee is likely to be cast iron, and the resale value of the phone won't be compromised with a cheaper replacement part.
The downside is that a used Samsung S3 trades at about £100!
