Brings back memories of the rip-off prices in the initial years of digital wrist watches. A battery that cost 25 cents wholesale was being sold for up to R50 by the jewellery and watch-repair shops.

Samsung smart centres in sandton and constantia kloof can help you. Think it's around 450- 600 last time I asked....

However my s7e also was not lasting anymore I tried to do a full wipe and then restored the phone it went back to it's out of box life.

Battery seems to have swelled up its def stuffed.
Wefix say they can repair it - 5 to 12 working days :eek:
Seriously?

Anyone done a battery replacement recently on a S7/S8 that can update us on current prices?
I need to get my S8 battery plus replaced, the Samung Store in Rivonia is quoting R2500 :oops: Cellcinix in Melrose Arch Quoted R550.

Edit: Went to China Mall and got the battery replaced from one of the Pakistani stores for R250, let's see how long it lasts.....
