Where to purchase Genuine, OEM Factory Samsung Galaxy S4 Gorilla Glass

Hi, I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 that has a cracked front glass and I've read the posts here and on watched several video on youtube on front glass replacement procedures. There's a few vendors selling on Amazon but they are replacments and not the actual Samsung front glass. Anyone knows where in US I can order genuine / OEM / factory Gorilla front glass for Samsung Galaxy S4?

Thanks in advance!

According to the reviews, it appears to be the real Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Will order one and try it out.

Hey dwen77 if you wouldn't mind responding to this post saying how your fix goes and what the OEM lens is like that would be awesome. Good luck!

Kevin Bone,

Would you tell us the name of the professional service that you used to repair your galaxy s4?

My answer is: I do fix my own elctronic devices sonce I don’t trust technicians, most but not all of them try to rip tou off some how and I don’t want to offend any one, so please don't take it personal if anyone is a technician and is honest then don't get offended.

I em not a professional technician, what I always do is to research on the internet like you all and try to find answers and solutions and yes I may spend more time but I learn and save money, god bless you all.

I am fairly certain that E Trade supplies has true Corning gorilla glass three. They sell both real and aftermarket "lenses" as they call them. The real one says it is OEM and is about $15 as opposed to the $4 glass lenses they sell as well.

There is no genuine gorilla glass for samsung galaxy s4 because samsung doesn't sell the glass separately. You would be able to find better quality glass, but it's not genuine and unfortunately it will never be the same even if you manage to separate the cracked screen from the display without damaging the lcd screen underneath. What you can do is to buy the whole thing. That means front glass, bezel frame (or without it, it's slightly cheaper) lcd display and frame. It is expensive I know, but is the only way to go, if you wan't your phone back just the way it was. Otherwise you will probably end up with a dim, vague screen or even worst, a damaged one.

etradesupply dude, your best bet. They have a wharehouse in Dallas I think but if they don't have your item they ship from China via EMS so it arrives fast (30$ shipping and 150$ for OEM genuine s4 screen assembly aproximately) just be sure to pick the right one for your model and watch videos on youtube to fix it yourself. if you buy the 150$ screen assembly. it is TOO EASY to do

for almost 200 bucks id rather put a silver tape on it and go on with my life. no way.

I frequently take the risk of allowing my children and grandchildren borrow my phone. This means that I have had to replace the front glass lens twice on my Galaxy S4 (both times the phone was dropped from shoulder height on concrete or stone). Both times I replaced the lens only using a professional service that used genuine Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Both times my phone worked perfectly after the repair, no delays, no sensitivity issues, just like new. In fact, one of my complaints about the the S4 is that it can be too sensitive (and this is without turning on the option to make it extra sensitive).

Whenever you read a review or tech hint that sounds absolute and fully confident you are probably dealing someone who is either lying or lacks professional understanding of what they are talking about. Be doubly warned if their solution is the most expensive solution. In all my years of tech (37) I have never found a problem that had only one solution.

From our experience, any supplier that claims "OEM Glass" is either lying, or not informed enough to really know the difference between "OEM Glass" and "High Quality 3rd Party Replacement Glass".

Call Samsung and ask to order the "glass only" from them, they'll simply tell you that it isn't available. They only "produce" the full front assemblies with Glass, Digitizer, and LCD fused together. It's a shame that suppliers and repair shops lie to unsuspecting consumers about their supposed "OEM Glass", which in turn makes other suppliers and shops feel the need to lie just to "compete".

its vary easy to find it, people sell them on ebay and elsewhere but when you receive it remember to check the glass for quality fake glass will be noticeable, look at the samsung logo and compare to the real glass.

It is not very easy as this person says, it is truth that there are many spam sellers taking advantage of people selling generic and fake OEM phone parts, I had to spend a lot of money buying from more than te sellers and took me a couple of month just to find the right part, an OEM USB charging port for Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

The problem with that particular part is that if is not a real Samsung OEM, the antenna signal won't have reception at all or barely one bar.

All buyers beware!! I actually purchased this "supposed" Gorilla Glass 3 lens from etradesupply, and it is FAKE! They also have it listed as "OEM Gorilla Glass 3 by Corning, but it is a piece of plastic! They are charging $15 for these fake pieces! I have confronted them on their scam and told them I was going to spread the word about their dishonesty. Do your research before you throw your money away!

LIE from Melinda Heater...seems like Melinda Hater.... I Myself ordered 2 and have close up photos with the FedEx package and everything that proof 100% that they sell genuine... the first time I ordered from some random other guy it turned out to be such a fake one -.-... I'm thankful to Etradesupply.com, but think they should really give more shipping options (like cheaper ones for people who don't mind waiting long :P)

by

Emmanuel, can you please post those pics so we can see them? I'd love to get the true Gorilla Glass, but I certainly don't want to drop top dollar just to get another aftermarket product that isn't the same as factory.

Also, if anyone does come up with another place that that shipping doesn't get you, please share. Thanks!

by

Joscon5 he already said he ordered from etradesupply. why do you need pictures they have heaps in stock just order from them, you wont get it cheaper anywhere else, TRUST me I have looked.

Most places sell counterfeit glass. There are only two places in the states that legally get the parts from Samsung. We just as others can purchase from them. But there are only two distributors that receive direct oem form Samsung.

I sure wish you could send screens to customers. I understand the idea of "take it to your repair shop", but that only works if I can walk-in.

I refuse to send my phone and be without it for 7-10 days when I am able to take care of the problem myself. Doesn't it make sense to sell replacement parts for real income, rather than let these 3rd party rip-off artists ruin your reputation with supposable OEM material.

BTW, yes I've been burned by the 3rd party rip-off scum for over $200. Lesson learned.

Hopefully, Samsung (which I have spent thousands on in the past few years) will update their policy.

Until then...

According to Samsung repair services, the cost to repair a Samsung Gear 'S' watch, with cracked glass, is $249.00. I can purchase a "new" watch from Amazon, without a contract, for $299.00

I assume they are replacing the watch module into my original watch strap. By replacing the watch module, the ratings for water resistance, the hermetic seals, etc., would remain intact. Also, they would require no special tooling or skilled labor.

It is NOT possible to purchase just the replacement glass or screen from Samsung.

Go figure.
