Congrats for discovering Samsung being Samsung. We removable battery/sd card/3.5mm jack fans (on flagships), who have been repeatedly insulted all these years, welcome you to the club.

Ignore my previous reply. I spoke too soon. Check price of replacement screen plus labor. If your total expenses ($100+screen+labor) way less than used S20 Ultra (same specs) with zero defects, get it.
