    About couple weeks ago I was fortunate enough to get my screen busted. Check it out here https://forums.androidcentral.com/sh...d.php?t=836107

    I ended up sending the phone to Samsung for repair and my Note 8 is back today. It looks AMAZING. I don't even think it's the same phone lol.

    This one came all wrapped and even has the 4g Qualcomm sticker at the top frame. I had a dbrand skin on the back and that's not on the phone I got back. I don't care what samsung did but all I care about is that this phone looks brand new. Very happy with the quality of service by samsung. NICE WORK.

    Now, I just need to figure out how to put armor around this phone lol.

    Great news!

    Maybe an OtterBox Defender should be one of your top priority purchases. My local Sam's Club currently has them for $39.94. Excellent protection and built like it could take a drop from 30 feet (although I'd suggest you not try that).

    Didn't even think to check that. Yep, same IMEI number so it is the same phone. Wow, I am impressed. Looks like Samsung replaced back, front screen, and sides of the phone. Amazing work. It literary looks brand new!!!!

    I am beyond satisfied how this turned out. If anyone looking to repair their Note 8, send it to Samsung without any hesitation. I sure glad I did.

    I had a similar experience with fixing my S7 at a local repair shop for a cracked front glass panel. Since the frame and front panel of the S7 is fully integrated, the shop replaced nearly the entire outer shell (just reusing the back glass panel). They transferred the internal components such as the main board and camera but everything else was new, including the battery. All this for $160 at the time.

    Good to hear!

    If you're a person who doesn't like cases, I'd recommend the Spigen Thin Fit. I dropped my Note 8 on to the floor at home awhile back, and thanks to this case it didn't suffer so much as a single scratch. I wouldn't recommend this if you're going hiking or to a concert or anything. But for home and office it's remarkably effective, and barely noticeable.

    Does the sides of the case come above the glass screen to protect the front of the phone when dropped?

    OP dropped his phone on concrete with a more "protective" case on. My guess would be the thin fit wouldn't care any better.

    Link of my case in the original thread. Phone dropped face down and just went flat without on single bounce. It was simply the worst possible fall scenario. I've had so many Phones for so many years and this is the 1st time I break one

    they would have replaced the battery as well as it is not deemed safe to reuse after being subject to the heat needed to take the phone apart, just another plus :-)
