Dropped my Galaxy S3 yesterday and to no surprise a shattered screen. Unfortunately did not get warranty on the phone as I typically am careful with my items but obviously life happened. Now I'm still under contract for another year (maybe 2 don't remember) so it's not like I have the situation of just upgrading. Good news is that the phone still functions and only the front camera area of the phone is completely shattered. The rest of the phone has hairline scratches (not noticeable during usage). Now for some reason when I honestly could careless that the screen is shattered because it is still functioning and the fact that cell phones change by year but that hasn't prevented me from looking at a few options. Option 1: Replace the glass myself I've seen some tutorials in which people have just replaced the glass portion of the phone. The parts are on ebay for roughly 20 bucks. The only thing I'm worried about is ruining the touch connection for the bottom buttons that would end up just making the phone unusable. Option 2: Get a new phone I've considered maybe just saving up for the next few months and getting an unlocked phone via eBay. Maybe I can just wait for the new rumored Galaxy S4 or maybe get the upcoming iPhone5s. Or if anything when those get released just get the S3 again or an iPhone 5 at a cheaper price (hopefully) and wait out this contract and get whatever new phone is out then.
