Screen or front glass? Usually it's the front glass which costs virtually nothing to purchase yet repair shops charge an insane amount to repair the front glass. I'm in the same boat. Going the DIY option.
Purchased a replacement front glass from AliExpress for R160, it ships with the entire kit including the clear adhesive needed.
Will take some pics of my repair and post here when my replacement glass arrives.
Only problem is shipping time. I only expect it to arrive in a month
My S8 is 2 years old now and Vodacom direct phoning me for upgrade.... I'm thinking of just getting a new screen rather than upgrading. This phone is still pretty decent if you add a decent size SD card and upgrade it to the latest android it's still a very decent phone. I think I'd rather cancel my Vodacom contract and go MTN prepaid. I find that Vodacom coverage when I travel to Richards Bay from PTA is a disaster anyways.
I have no idea what they retail for new now but the S8 did recently get android 9 update and it's still a pretty decent phone after 2 years I still feel like I'm holding a premium newly released device. My phone just needs a service maybe like a new battery and definitely a new glass screen.
