    Thank you for your kind offer Jake.
    I'm terrible at diy, out of curiosity, which iphone is that? Are parts cheapish?

    Thank you Jake.
    Let me know if you do decide to sell your s7 and how much you want for it.
    Cheers!

    @style and @tez,

    Since both of you seem to know a whole lot more about phones than i do, could you advise on fixing my current phone and whether its worth it?
    The screen's cracked on the outside,not inside, but still usable if that makes sense.
    However, i'm noticing that the feedback on touching certain areas of the screen is going wonky.
    For example, i may be touching on the bottom left corner of the screen but it registers as a touch on the middle section and opens up a different app.
    Is that due to the cracked screen? Or is it something more dodgy?

    So the glass only is cracked/damaged? The screen (under the glass) itself is actually 2 parts, though are fitted (and replaced) together, the screen, and the digitzer...the digitizer being the part that registers the touches. Then theres the fact the screen is glued to the glass...making the job of replacing either the glass or the screen tricky...

    Theres no super easy way to fix this yourself as per my ifixit link the other day, or these youtube videos for example:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pX4ogzyZ6C4

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyECCSa5hGU

    The replacement screen and digitizer is $150 and up....

    As for a paid service, heres Samsung recommended retail price list for their phones...that recommended: Recommended Retail Pricing | Samsung AU

    Your best initial step is to go and ask Samsung for a quote to fix it at their actual store if you have one nearby

    For third party shops...heres a quick blurb and price form a well known mod here in Sydney: Samsung Galaxy S6 Screen Repair Sydney | Fone FIx

    Even they advise trying Samsung first, as apparently its a pain in the bum to repair...
