Hi 

 

My s7 edge fell less than 2 feet from my pocket onto the floor and now I see the screen is cracked!! 

 

Questions

 

where can I send it for repair.

 

Approx how long and how much.

 

I love this phone but think its not a working mans phone as even with a case on it cannot take the knocks

 

I would be greatful for any advice

 

Thanks Pete

m8 Had an S6 Edge with cracked screen- went to one of those stalls at the base- quotes over $400.

 

Look around.

 

Get yourself a sturdy case if you are in that line of work.

What sort of case (brand/model) do you have? How did the phone land - on the edge, flat, or did it impact a pointed object?

I dropped my Note 2 (obviously a very different phone) a couple of weeks back and shattered the screen quite badly. I took it to CellCity who fixed it within four hours for $100 and did a great job.

Interesting, but probably not that useful. I've found that different phones (even within the same brand), require quite different input to fix, meaning the cost is widely variable. My Note 4 was quoted by numerous repairers at between $300-400. Only cheap option I found was on TradeMe, but wasn't confident on the quality of the repair.

 

I don't think values for phone repairs other than those for the s6/s7 edge are much use to the OP

All I was trying to do was illustrate they can be significantly cheaper than other places. I'm quite aware of the phone being vastly different, I even put that in my post...

With some of the repairers, I've also found that contacting the shop directly (not the 0800 number) can result in a much cheaper price than those published on the national website.

Fair enough, and if that was the point would be useful to know who else quoted for the repair and how much for, otherwise I don't know if $100 is cheap for a Note 2 screen repair or not
