Default Chrome / Metal Band GS5 Sprint

I hate to say that I have christened my Sprint Galaxy S5 by dropping it WITHOUT a case. Almost 3 months without incident!! When it dropped the bottom right hand corner specifically the chrome band around the phone is dinged. My question is does anybody know if there is a way to replace JUST that band, and if it is possible where to get it? Pictures to follow later tonight!

Thats what you need, it cost me USD 12, but i'm sure you won't get it that cheap.

Wholly moly! That looks the like pretty much the housing assembly correct? Do you know of a site that sells, and the difficulties of swapping?

I thanked you, but just want to say thank you as well!

Here's the part you'll need:

I work for a repair shop and we get parts from these guys, so I can without a doubt vouch for the quality, price, and shipping time.

As for replacing it.... Good luck, you'll need it. The only way into the S5 is behind the screen which must be removed to open it up. It's glued down with superSam****adhesive so more likely than not you'll end up breaking the display or separating the display from the glass. If your screen is fine, it's not worth the cost of replacing your entire display just to replace the midframe.

Just in case, here's a display w/ the home button flex: http://www.ebay.com/itm/351067874432

also need to buy the panel sticker adhesive and the display rim adhesive.

I got all these stuff apart from the panel adhesive, but traded my S5 yesterday for a Tab S 8.4.

Thanks guys for your help! After looking at everything needed to be done I think you guys are right, I will just live with the nicks I have, and since they are a bit sharp, i'll use a dremel on low speed to grind down a little. Like I said thanks again for the eye opener!!!! LoL
