Used to be quite a few of those repair guys on the lower level of the Sta. Lucia mall in Cainta too. Been several years since I've been there.

update I have asked many repair places and they all say the same 50/50 final attempt will be tomorrow the samsung store in SM calamba phoned the sister and told her the tech guy says he can do it ( back after lockdown ) so we shall see the way its looking I might buy one of those cheap 3000=5000 peso tablets for everyday use and keep the samsung for video chats and gaming using a wifi charger for both !

Bobby what ever you do don't buy one of those cheap 3,000 peso tablets you will be sorry. Those cheap pieces of garbage can't pick up Wifi very well and the software is terrible, you'll have nothing but troubles trying download photos and the battery and charging point probably won't last two months if that.

My son and daughter both bought a decent tablet that takes excellent photos and you can also download and the software and hardware work very well the price would be around 7,000 pesos, my son has a Vivo and my daughter bought Realme 5... I have purchased those fake knock offs twice, once a tablet and the other time a smart cell phone and what a mistake.

You will want to buy a branded phone real phone, the SM Calamba store is the worst spot to find them they always are out of stock of the lower priced phones priced at 7,000 pesos, we traveled all the way to the SM Calamba Mall and had to go back home to our Mall called Sunstar Mall in Sta Cruz Laguna and they had both phones in stock. I think one of the worst mall I've ever shopped in is the SM Calamba other than their SM Grocery and the ACE Hardware the restaurants are out of stock on food items always and the electronics are never fail out of stock.
