I got iPhone 4 and my friend got Samsung Galaxy SIII and both of our screens got broken badly, so we went to Hawally to change them and to my surprise my screen costs KD15 while his screen costs KD85, that’s a big difference. Question is; why Samsung Galaxy S III screen costs much higher than iPhone 4S?
Basically iPhone screen comes in two parts; the top glass and the underneath touch panel and they are separated (see picture below), this is why iPhone screen keeps working even after it gets broken whereas Samsung Galaxy S III screen comes as single plastic piece and rarely works when broken badly. I think this is the same reason why Samsung Galaxy screen is more expensive. I hope Samsung will resolve this issue in their upcoming Samsung Note 2 phone.
Finally my iPhone screen was replaced with a new one, though I want to clarify that screens in Hawally are not original.
