Phone Repair


Hey Inner, how hard is it to fix a screen on a Note 8? Thought about doing it myself but not sure if my fat hands would be up for it. They wanted 240 bucks to fix it and a genuine replacement is like 50. If I can do it at night hanging with the kids and having them be a part of it, I'd like to give it a shot.

At 240 it's almost worth it just to buy a new damn phone when the 10 comes out because the note 8 will get even cheaper and then I'll have a spare battery.

That was my comment when I got the screen replaced on my old iPhone 5C. New screen AND new battery - 80 bucks.

Just the screen for an Android - 150 bucks.
