When faced with the broken screen of a smartphone or other electronic device, some inexpensive repair options to consider include repairing it yourself, contacting a local repair store, and buying screen repair spray. Manufacturers can also be contacted for inquiries about warranty coverage.
Fixing a broken screen yourself is by far the most frugal repair option; glass screen components can cost as little as $30, with parts for newer models often fetching around $80. Find self-repair tutorials online from various sources depending on the specific device and screen model. Local repair stores often charge far less for screen repair than sending the device in to its parent company.
