Sad but true.....

Several months ago I cracked the glass front of my Galaxy S4 and it was much cheaper to file an insurance claim than to try to fix the display. Samsung replacement parts are very expensive. Cheaper to buy a phone outright vs. buying all the parts separately, no different with a car.

Not only must we pay for the 3 buck part but make a boatload of money to pay for development as well as warranty costs. But let's say you can do this for 3 dollars. Why not go do it?
