If you have damaged your Samsung Galaxy Note 7 or S7 Edge’s display, you will have to be prepared to cough up $270 to fix it. This is pricier that the Nexus 5X and comes close to the price of a Huawei Honor 5X. As a matter of fact, it costs more than both the device combined.
Normally, a standard smartphone display would only cost you about $100 to $150 to replace. But Samsung’s flagship devices are special. They are pricier to fix as they are fitted with Quad HD Super AMOLED display which aren’t the most common displays around.
Folks who are familiar with the South Korean manufacturer’s smartphones will know that it is reasonable to worry about this. Cracked screens are becoming such a norm these days despite many things changing since the inception of the first iPhone 10 year ago. It seems some issues never truly go away.
Well, you could always opt to get a more durable devices such as the HTC 10, Moto Z Force, or even the Galaxy S7 Active but if that’s not exactly your cup of tea, there is another alternative. The regular Galaxy S7 is the ideal as well as a more cost-effective replacement.
It is cheaper than its bigger siblings and it only costs $162 to fix the display. What’s even more surprising is the fact that the Galaxy S6’s display would cost you at least $200 to be replaced. So, if you’re one of those people with butter fingers, you know which one to opt for.
