Today seems a unlucky day for my phone. After a fall couple of days back my S8+ has developed cracks on display and having yellow colour display today. Took to nearby shop who suggested it is better to buy a new phone. Visited a Samsung shop and saw S20FE 5G. It is being sold at 48K.With a cashback offer can get it for 42K. Is it worth it? 4G version is selling at 38K with no offer

5G version is better and worth investing.

Better buy ot offline as it is available at same price as online.

I noticed that it doesn't have 3.5mm jack. I don't like bluetooth headset much. I read about type-c earphones or ANC earphones. Are they good? any suggestive brands or model?

S20 FE 5G is the flagship I'd recommend for most people, even over S21 because S21 series has Exynos CPU. Exynos is hot & less energy efficient as usual but S888 has those issues as well. So S865/S870 is the best flagship chip IMO.

Advantages of 5G variant over 4G variant:
  • 5G
  • Better performance
  • Bit better battery life
  • Bit better camera as well based on some sources because of QC's ISP

Where ican buy BL272 original battery?
Tried MoBatree, Amazon, tested batteries with AccuBattery & BatteryGuru, results showing both batteries are 3000mAh with estimated capacity, MoBatree - 2640mAh, Amazon - 2935mAh.
Please help me find BL272 4000 mAh battery.

out of curiosity, is it worth trying to repair my existing s8+ display? how much would it cost?

Where to get original battery?
I went to Lenovo service center but they said no battery available.
How are these sites? Maxbhi.com, BatteryGod.com?

1) original battery is impossible to find, even if found it will be depleted due to old manufacturing date
2) Maxbhi has no return policy, so if it sends you a faulty product or wrong product, you can't do anything.

3) From my experience, try to buy a new phone. I had a MMX phone whose screen went bad after 6 months. I could not find a replacement anywhere so instead bough lt new phone.

Check this:
Price of repair parts for Samsung phones | Samsung IN
Apparently 9.1k + service fee + GST.

Strangely, yes, no info on that. Even I thought it was GG3 for some reason.
