    Well it had to happen eventually. I’ve looked around and $130 used with SBI on ebay is the best i can find. I don’t want to pay that for an imperfect screen, already got that.

    My insurance deductible is $250 and for a previous generation screen that’s way too much. If it were a note 9, maybe.

    Anyone have any better sources? I’m using my backup iphone 8 plus right now so no immediate rush to get a screen, but the sooner the better. The screen is working on the note, but it’s an eyesore.

    Ouch 😱 I really hope there is a cheaper solution for you to fix that! These phones are such beauties, it sucks to have them broken. Good luck!

    What is most annoying is that my eyes don’t see a massive difference in the retina lcd and the oled screen but my wallet see’s $22 for the iPhone 8 plus versus $250 for the Note 8. They did a phenomenal job on the iPhone 8 plus Retina which has 401p and a higher contrast ratio than previous retina screens. There IS a difference, but not by any means a $228 difference. I wish the Sansung weren’t oled at this point between the SBI and the ridiculous reacement cost.

    Have you tried Batteries+ Bulbs? I got my daughter's S7 screen replaced for less than $200. I'm sure they can repair A Note 8.

    my note 8 suffered the same fate, same crack along the edge display. I paid the crazy $240 Samsung is asking to repair the 8. Promptly purchased a Unicorn Beetle case.

    I couldn't find a supplier cheaper for a new screen so I paid the rape charge from the insurance (assurant) and it's scheduled to be here within 24 hours (2pm friday).

    On another "note" I've been using the tweed incipio case for a year and it wasn't cheap, but I think I'm going to try an S-view case for the new one. Any complaints from anyone about it?

    Ahhhh it’s only new once. . So the new phone is as expected, but i have an issue with the stylus. I swear it looks fake. I have owned a LOT of notes and i have a couple of my note 7 stylus and note 8 stylus side by side. The new one is the only one that has a foggy finish, cannot read the country stamp, and the serial number is printed on. Can i hear from others if they have an oem stylus that has printed numbers and the country cannot be read??

    I have an AT&T US Note 8. I didn't realize that the stylus had markings until your post. Mine has the painted on serial number and Vietnam as the country. Very hard to read the serial number and even harder to read the country.

    didn't know about that either. I have an art note, and the country is stamped on, serial is painted on.

    Both my note 7 and the note 8 i bought new have stamped country and numbers. This new one is painted numbers and the country can’t be read with bare eyes. While the note 7 stylus was vietnam, and note 8 was china, that’s irrelevant just noting the quality issue. It works properly so I’m not very concerned, but it’s interesting.

    On a side note, i have forgotten how to get rid of this animation. Anyone remember? It constantly tells me to swipe up. I got rid of it on the first note 8. Drives me nuts.
