    Hello-

    I have a S8 Edge (not the plus) that was dropped and the screen and digitizer were damaged. I think I'm going to try the repair myself as we don't have insurance on the phone. I need a little advice with the process, though.

    https://www.digitalsupplyusa.com/pro...xoC3NcQAvD_BwE

    I found this kit on-line, but am not familiar with the company nor am I 100% sure that this is all I would need.

    Is this kit above all I need to fix the screen and the digitizer and does anyone know if there is a reputable supplier on eBay, Amazon, or elsewhere where I can get what I need cheaper?

    Thanks

    First, if you've never replaced a cellphone screen, the S8 (it's not called edge) is not the first you should start with.
    Second, you really should look here" https://www.ifixit.com/Device/Samsung_Galaxy_S8
    You're going to have a difficult time removing the back glass to begin with.

    Thanks. I realize it will be hard.

    The iFixit website had parts that themselves cost more than just taking it to a local repair shop, so that probably wouldn't be an option for me.

    thanks.

    Yeah, I didn't provide the website for you to purchase parts. I never buy parts from them. I provided the website for your use in attempting the repair.

    If you noticed, there is no tear down guide for replacing the glass/digitizer/frame combo, which is what you will need. That alone tells me to stay away from attempting the repair, and I have several years experience repairing phones.

    Good luck with your decision.

    Wow. Didn't realize it was such a big deal. The stoner at the cell phone fix-it shop around the corner from my house does it for $250, and his hands look shaky : )

    I'll probably try it anyway. If anyone else has any advice, I'm all ears.
