    Smashed my f*@cking phone screen again

    So I have the s7 edge and it's been nothing but a pox since I got it. Screen smashed the day I got it. Had it replaced, headphone jack got blocked had that replaced. Home button broke so had that replaced.

    Then this morning getting into the car. Boom phone face down on the droveway. Big otterbox case not worth a bollix, screen all cracked again. It works fine just looks rough.

    Anyone know anyone who fixes phones as I'm seeing 400 to replace the screen online.

    Or anyone want to buy a cured bastard phone?

    Place in Bray near the DART station too that does that kind of stuff.
    Used them for work a few times and always good.

    Or if you have time and patience you can buy a screen and fit it yourself. Lots of tutorials on youtube

    Cheers lads. I wouldn't risk it myself, the edge screen is a bit much. Rang the Samsung shop today and they said 230 for the screen. Not that bad when you think insurance charges 170 to go through them.

    imho not worth fixing, I crashed my screen on S7 edge about a month after I bought it... cheapest I could get it to repair was 280euro directly at Samsung(in Dundrum shop) but imagine, how many parts for my car I can have for that price... fook the phone, it works, I can call, who gives a fook how it looks

    Lad I know bought a cheap Chinese kit for his phone when he broke screen on his s5.
    Didn't cost him much and got the tools and all that to do so.
    It was only the outer screen broken tho

    Yeah my mate replaced his girlfriend's s5 screen 4 times. Think the edge screen is different, pretty much only the OEM screen will do
