Cracked the screen on your Galaxy Note 2 or Note 3 and wondered how much it will cost to replace the screen? Don't worry. This article could give you a hand. The cost depends on which part of the screen should be repaired, the front glass or the entire screen.
How much to replace only the front glass on the Galaxy Note 2 or Note 3?
If the touchscreen of your Galaxy Note 2/3 sill works well after the screen is cracked, you only have to replace the front glass. The cost of the front glass part is cheap, but you’ll take risks. Because the glass screen is hermetically fused to the Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen, which means it will not be easy to separate them. Professional skills and tools are required for the replacement. The cost of a new and original glass screen for Galaxy Note 2 or Note 3 is around $20, like this Galaxy Note 3 N900 glass lens on ETrade Supply. You can also find many glass lenses on eBay or Amazon, but be careful to choose an original one rather than a fraud one. And you can learn how to replace the front glass from the article How to Replace Only the Glass Screen on the Galaxy Smartphones. If you realize you’re not qualified to replace the glass screen yourself, you can get a new glass lens and turn to a local repair store, which may increase the cost but decrease the risks.
