It's been awhile since I've posted to this blog...I apologize for that. But believe it or not, sometimes, a freelance writer runs out of ideas to write about. However, I've decided to take this blog on a new adventure. I'm going to do my best to do one posting at least four times a week. And each blog will talk about a new service or product that I've tried. I might throw in a random posting here and there, but for the most part, I want my postings to be of the utmost value to my readers.
So, here it goes.
About two weeks ago, my son and I were outside enjoying our new patio furniture. Well, actually I was enjoying the furniture and he was riding his new skateboard. After a few minutes of being outside, he wanted to use my phone to take a picture. When he handed it back to me, it fell...perfectly face down on the concrete.
"I hope it didn't crack my screen, Lucas."
"It didn't crack it that bad, Mom."
Me: Uugghhhhhhhhhhh...I just spent $659 on this phone and now the screen is already cracked.
What to do, what to do?
I immediately started looking for places that could repair the screen on a Samsung S5. And much to my surprise, there was no one locally. I found a place about an hour away, but they wanted to replace the entire front screen, including LCD and digitizer. The LCD and digitizer on my phone were fine, though, and I really didn't want to pay $280 when all I needed was the front glass repaired, which can be purchased for $5 on eBay.
I called my cousin and she put a posting on Facebook asking if anyone knew how to repair the screen on a S5, and within only a few minutes, a guy responded saying that he could make the necessary repairs for only $65.
I have since had my screen repaired by the guy who replied to the Facebook posting. His name is Robert Skaggs and he lives about 27 minutes from me.
If you or someone you know is in need of Samsung S5 repair services, please keep Robert in mind. He was exceptionally friendly and I couldn't be happier with the services he provided me. My phone looks better than ever.
Most importantly, do not attempt to repair the screen yourself. If you do, you'll likely find yourself dishing out hundreds of dollars on a digitizer and LCD. Also, I highly suggest that you follow the advice Robert gave me: put a tempered glass screen cover on your phone and go ahead and dish out the money for an OtterBox or Roocase.
