Cracked Galaxy Note screen repair options and costs
Cracked Galaxy Note screen replacement costs vary by model and the repair option you choose. Here’s what to expect.
Warranty repair: $0
All new Galaxy Notes are covered by Samsung’s 12-month warranty, which offers free repairs for covered defects. Cracked screens are typically caused by accidental damage, however, which isn’t covered by the warranty.
If you believe your Note screen was cracked due to a manufacturing defect, make your case to Samsung. If they won’t cover it, you’ll need to pay for repair.

If you make a claim, Samsung will likely send a replacement phone instead of your original device.
