Default HTC One M8 replacement screen

Hi Guys,

Thought i should post this story as some may find interesting

After having my new M8 for 4 days and leaving the phone screen up on my desk, my 4 year old while reaching for a stone she had previously brought me a few days earlier, dropped the stone straight onto the screen breaking it.

I wasn't too happy, but accidents happen and we have grown attached to her and my wife wouldn't let me put her up for adoption.

I tried a couple of local phone repairs places who all refused to take it on. Finally contacted HTC to see if they would repair. Firstly i tried the "why don't we have screen cover in Europe" which didn't work, in the end agreeing i would need to pay for the repair.

HTC organised UPS to collect and i have to say the service was excellent and you all will be pleased to hear total cost to replace screen, including pick up and return....106...

Yep surprised me too.

We may not have HTC advantage in Europe but at least they are not ripping us off either.

I hear you! Have a nearly 4 year old too, I can understand your pain!

That's not too bad a price really, good to know. The Advantage program looks to be heading our way soon:

Out of interest, where did your phone get sent for repair? I know there is a HTC presence in Slough, no idea what they do from there however.

Ok thanks for that. Was purely out of interest. Makes sense that they would outsource warranty repairs.

I've had to use Regenersis before, were really good and turned my dead Sensation round in a few days. Was really impressed

Hi,

My puppy got hold of my HTC M8 this morning and I stumbled across this site looking for an idea of cost to repair, can I ask you how badly yours was damaged, mine in the the top right hand corner, but it appears to have affected the whole screen, touch still works all over it though so guessing that's a good thing?

I've arranged for them to pick it up tomorrow, dreading the bill, but got to have it fixed, only got it last Monday

Many thanks for any info

Jan
