    There's inexpensive & cheap... inexpensive implies decent quality parts; cheap means you'll probably repair the same bit more times that would cover the difference in price between the two.

    Didn't think there was such a thing as a cheap (or inexpensive) replacement Samsung screen.

    Give Digicare a ring/email, they supply genuine Samsung parts. You might also need a "rework kit" which is a load of pre cut adhesive to stick the rear glass back on and such. Price will probably be in the £120 to £150 region but it's worth it for a genuine front since it'll come like this and not completely bare:

    in case you don't have experience to do it your self don't try because is gonna cost you more in the end to repair it. I had a similar situation and in the end i bought 3 screens before i manage to fix it correctly .taking it to a repair shop would cost me half price ...
