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.
