Does somebody know someone like this?
Thanks in advance!

Wanted: Someone competent to replace my Samsung S6 screen at a decent price.
Damage: Phone fell on it's side and the screen turned purple on the side where it fell and then the side which turned purple became black and then the other side also also turned purple and at that point the whole screen was black and not responsive. Phone still works fine, can still hear my messages and calls coming through.
Parts to be used: Only original Samsung parts please with the original 4k resolution.

It isn't worth to fix with an original screen and the original screen wasn't 4k res.

I had a water damage S6 that I sold for R1500. It did turn on though just only with the charger inserted. Rather sell the phone and get a Xiaomi or Huawei if you can't afford the expensive brands. They offer excellent value and will also offer better battery life than the S6.

Unfortunately I already gave it in to have it repaired, even Samsung and the other reputable brands don't use good quality parts to build their phones in the first place (which is why they break easily and get screen burn in ect.) and the cheaper phones like you suggested use even worse and cheaper parts... Not to mention the software issues. I have had 3 Hauwei phones break on me... Never again.

Sorry man I ended up opting to fix it.

Is this someone who fixes phones or someone you wanted to notify about my post?

In retrospect I should have done this too... The service in this country is appalling. They told me 3-7 working days it has nearly been 15 working days and they changed their tune now saying that it will take 20 working days for my phone, because I bought it in the Netherlands.

Was your screen the right resolution though? Or is it just a matter of settling for FHD?

Windstar Windstar try NuEra in Northlands Park...best kept secret. Ask for Nalene.
Oh my word! I wish you posted this sooner... Thank you though for future reference I will keep this in the back of my mind.

There's a few that you can get locally but those didnt give me much confidence hence I ended up getting one from Amazon. OEM replacement, perfect resolution, quality, you get all the tools to open up the handset and you get a free screengaurd
