Default silver frame around screen

Do you know if there is an option to change silver frame around screen?

My s5 fell at the pavment... The frame is destroyed and looks ugly .

I think your only real option is to cover it with a case, like maybe a bumper style type?

Few minutes ago I wrote message to Samsung's polish service and immediately get information that they can replace this frame but it costs 250 pln, it's something about 60 euro...

I thought about replacing it myself but I don't want to lose waterproof and warranty...

Normally I use leather case. When I don't use phone I put it there. I don't know the English word for this type of case :P.

I'm not a fan of any types of bumpers which makes phone bigger so it's not solution for me.

I will think about replacing this in Samsung's service.

Go with the service! 60 euros is nothing for this kind of fix - I'd imagine more like 250 euros - just so they can skin the customer once more. And you'll have your warranty and water resistance as well, otherwise if you did it yourself I'd seriously doubt it.
