I broke my phone!


Over the weekend, an unfortunate incident happened. I shattered the screen of my Samsung Galaxy S1 at the cemetery during the time when I was about to get into the car. I think things happened for a reason because on the way to Nirvana, the car in front of me went over a pebble and the pebble (as big as 20cents) hit my windscreen and there was a loud knock. However, it didn't damage my windscreen which I felt really blessed and lucky.



But manatau, I ended up shattering the screen of my phone when I accidentally dropped it with the protective cover open. And when back luck strikes, it never stopped. The phone dropped face down on the tarmac road and thus the beautiful shatter you see in the picture. I think my grandparents are angry at me for not getting them the NEW Hellpad. Sigh... Why?!! Why?!! Why?!! Or is my grandfather angry at me for forgetting to bring his Guinness Stout?!! We didn't bring any real ones, but we did burn a few for him.



I tweeted about my misfortune and most of the answers I get were "Congratulations. It's time to buy a new phone!" KNS... I knew this incident is going to make the biggest dent to my bank account and true enough. I asked how much to fix it and it's RM550 to replace the screen all because it's an Amoled screen! Double KNS.

But you know what?!! I'll be out scouting for a new phone this week. I'm going to share the good news for all gadget freaks and technology savy people like me! There's a fair in town and it's so awesome because it's a "I Love Tablet" Fair 2012 brought to you by Celcom.

Ooh the Xperia S for RM 999 onwards. It sounds like quite the bargain. I've been eyeing that phone for quite a bit. Nice dual core 1.5 Ghz with graphics unit and a 12MP cam.

Just the thing I need to replace a digicam for everyday use. :D

Anon: Haha... yes that's my birthday present from my dad, I've spent all my bonus on my house and I don't have a bf. So why can't I complain?

Huai Bin: Yeap you should go and have a look. Maybe during the special hours, they will reduce the price some more.

oh, i cracked my phone screen last month too (dropped it too). it's actually even more cracked than yours, but luckily, it's still usable. it'd cost RM250 to replace the screen, so i'm just gonna wait for several more months and change the phone later this year :D

Ya...go and get a new one, no worries!

P.S.
Have a peep at Huai Bin's iPad screen... But at least, it still works ok. LOL!!!

better to buy a new one then. the repair is about 25% the price of a new phone per se.

Huai Bin's iPad is certainly bearing some interesting battle scars. but yours is more shattered than his.

It’s rather unfortunate that your old one couldn't be repaired, and that you had to get a new one. It’s just that I’ve seen phone screens that are way worst cracked and chipped that yours, and yet the repair still managed to replace it. But then again, if the parts needed and labor required will cost you more than half the cost of a new phone, then it really was best to just get a new one. Anyway, it’s just about time you move on to tablets, or tablet phones for that matter, as they can be quite convenient. I hope that one lasts for years to come!
