Can I fix my cracked Galaxy Note 10 myself?
With a little skill, patience, and luck you may be able to repair your Galaxy Note 10 yourself. However, the answer to whether you can (or should) fix it yourself is — NO.

Putting the thought of attempting the repair yourself aside, you should visit the Swappa Repair Network to find a trusted repair shop.
Is Samsung Galaxy Note 10 screen repair worth it?
It is absolutely worth repairing a cracked Galaxy Note 10 screen because it would be less expensive to repair it than to replace it. You could even have the phone repaired and buy a good case and screen protector and still be a little under what a replacement would cost.
Of course, there are times when replacing the device makes more sense, such as if you depend on your phone and can get a replacement quicker than you can get a repair. In addition, if you broke your screen by dropping your phone, there could also be some hidden damage such as a bent frame and that can lead to other problems such as the phone no longer being water resistant.
Consider upgrading to a Galaxy Note 20 instead
But even when a repair or replacement makes more financial sense, we suspect plenty of people would be able to use this as an excuse to get a newer model. If you’re a Note 10 user planning to stay with a Galaxy Note — the Galaxy Note 20 or Note 20 Ultra are the two models you will be picking from.
The Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra are a year newer than the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus. This means an additional year of software support from Samsung, and it also means a newer processor which brings performance improvements. The Note 20 series is powered by the Snapdragon 865+, whereas the Note 10 series is powered by the Snapdragon 855. The Note 20 series also has 5G support, which will go towards future-proofing the phone as 5G networks become more and more prominent across the country.
To sum this up, your three options for consideration are repair, replace or upgrade. Whichever option you choose, you can take comfort in knowing that Swappa has you covered. If you go the repair route you can find a trusted local repair shop in the Swappa Repair Network, or if you go the replace or upgrade route you can find a gently used Galaxy Note 10 or Note 20 in the Swappa marketplace.
