    I want to know if you thinkers buying the droid bionic for 100 dollars with a cracked screen is worth it? It has a chip put in the top right if the phone n cracks down the right side of the phone then from the right to left side in the middle of the screen

    A good working clean esn Bionic is well worth $100. It's up to you if you want one with broken glass.

    They are free at Verizon.com now BTW.

    It might be. It depends how easy it is to replace the screen. I know the OG DROID was cake to replace because I did it, but I remember when my mom broke her Samsung Galaxy it was very complicated and pricey so she just got a new phone. Just do some research on repair sites and see how much it would cost to fix

    I personally would never buy a phone, especially a touchscreen phone, with cracked glass. The only way I'd consider this option is if I know replacing it would be fairly inexpensive, but if it's a Bionic I'd rather just pay a little bit more to get a clean one. Besides the $100 + replacing the screen would probably end up being more expensive than a used good condition one.

    Replacing the OG DROID screen was only about $20... it must be a simple swap. Or he is using cheap parts

    That is dirt cheap. For the OEM screen too or some cheap brand?

    I picked up an iPhone to use as a media device and just replacing the broken power button was going to cost me $60. Wasn't worth it so I just sold it.

    OEM. It was like a year after the phone came out though. And it was just the digitizer.

    Of course the power button would cost that much. iPhones are made out of gold and baby kisses.
