See, it’s not only you. Arguably everyone has tried different measures to protect their phone screen, but they still get cracked when gravity does its thing. Even with protective cases and tough tempered glasses protectors, nothing stops phone screens from getting damaged. But when it happens, the question remains how much does it cost to fix a cracked phone screen?

The good news is: the cost of replacing a broken screen is usually considerable than getting a new phone. What that means is that breaking your phone screen is not the end of the world. With a learned technician, you’ll be laughing profoundly when you watch your next TikTok video again. But first, let’s take a look at how much and what it takes to fix a cracked phone screen!

How much does it cost to fix a phone screen?

The cost of replacing a cracked phone screen all boils down to two things: the type of display and who does the replacement job. Let's start with the first one:

The type and components of your phone screen can often determine how economical or expensive to replace it. If you’ve got an LCD panel, then it shouldn’t cost you much. However, OLED screens can be on the steep side, considering their features and advantages over LCD screens.

More so, features like high refresh rates, nits of brightness, protection (like Gorilla Glass), sizes, curved display, and many more can increase the cost of replacement. So, if you've got one of the best screens out there, be ready to pay more for its replacement.

On a more serious note, repairing your broken screen from the official customer care support usually comes with higher price tags than the street vendors. The reason for that is quite understandable, and you should appreciate it. As expected, the official service providers always use original phone screen parts with excellent quality; that gives you the same experience and features as the one that came with your phone from the factory.

On the other side, the street vendors may offer you screen replacement at a cheaper price, but it's hard to assure high-quality screen replacement parts. Hence, it's much safer to replace your broken phone screen with the official service provider.

So, how much does it cost to fix a cracked phone screen? To get the specific screen replacement price for your phone, we suggest you visit the website of the official customer care provider for your brand. Most smartphone brands usually have dedicated websites for repair services, you can check the price from there.

For example, you can get the screen replacement prices of TECNO, Infinix, and itel phones from our website.
