Hey there,

First off, I'm incredibly sorry to hear about the damage to your iPhone. Having your phone break -- especially a high-end, modern flagship -- is painful.

Considering how both the front and rear glass are broken, the quote you were given seems reasonable. For reference, you can find average repair costs for common issues on the Swappa Repair Calculator or in our Broken Screen Repair Cost article. And you can find qualified local repair shops near you through the Swappa Repair Network.

Although prices vary based on location and parts availability, you can expect to pay around $300-350 for out-of-warranty repair on the front glass and OLED display for an iPhone 12 Pro Max. Replacing the rear glass is typically a little less expensive, but certainly not cheap either.

Considering how there may be additional damage that's not readily apparent on visual inspection, the repair bills may keep climbing from there. Furthermore, it's possible that even once repaired, damage to the frame could impair water resistance.

Since there are multiple issues with the phone, I think it makes more sense to pick up a replacement iPhone 12 Pro Max in good condition or mint condition instead. Alternatively, you could use this as an opportunity to upgrade to an iPhone 13 Pro Max or iPhone 13 (if you don't mind the smaller size).

Hope this was helpful. And once again, I'm sorry to hear about the broken screen and rear glass.
