Cracked phone screen - replacement

Postby 3Boys » Wed Aug 06, 2014 12:53 am

Hi folks, unfortunately cracked the screen on an old phone I use as a backup. Anyone know where I can get it replaced on the cheap? It's a Samsung Galaxy S2.

TIA!

You might be able to do it at Sim Lim Square levels 4 to 6. Not sure if it is worth the trouble, though.

Can also do at Funan centre, think it's at level 2 or 3. I did a lcd display change recently, also for a S2.

I don't think that budget is possible, even as the cost for parts excluding labour. The parts usually come together as a unit. You are probably facing at least a $60 repair job.

I go to KSL in JB (prior to toll increase)...there are many branches of a shop called Cube littered around the mall. They can repair almost any screen under the sun. Not ex also (sorry can't recall price but it was cheap enough to go back - and i asked them to replace screen of an old Ipad).

My DH got his Samsung fixed at Sim Lim for $80 two months ago..
