    Hey guys.

    Anyone been in this situation? I dropped my phone and it landed face down. I can't tell if it has scratches or they are cracks. Bottom line the touchscreen doesn't work and I've tried pulling the battery to restart it. What should i do? Have to get a new screen?

    To keep it thin, every layer of the screen is bonded together man
    If youre handy with a screwdriver, have a look on ebay.
    Think samsung charge a FORTUNE.

    Yea, you should get it replaced. And to reduce/prevent these issues in future, get a really good case and screen protector.

    First thing I did when I got my S3 was grab an Otterbox Defender. 50 bucks is worth it to protect the S3

    Same thing happened to my S2 on 8/02/13 and I had it enclosed in the Otter Box Defender case. Please note that no damage was observed on the Otter Box case, but the screen on my cellphone was cracked! The phone has been in the Otter Box case since being purchased. Please note also; OTTER BOX DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT YOUR CELL PHONE WILL NOT BE DAMAGED!
