Angry iPad glass shatters. Where to repair?

Anyone know of any reliable shops that can replace the glass? A shop at Sim Lim quotes $80. Is it reasonable?

Great! I was just about to post to ask how to get my Ipad mini screen replaced. My son dropped the ipad mini and the screen is cracked.

Anyone tried the mobileshop in Far East? Any good? Does the replacement screen cracked easily again after?

There is this shop in Golden Mile which claims to sell Original Apple Replacement Screen for $100 but need DIY.

Is it difficult to DIY?

Thanks

I replaced my ipad2 at arround 120sgd in some game shop in simei east point about 1.5 years ago.
Works great
Although recently there is minor crack at the frame, but could be separate issue.

Steer clear of Repair Xpress located at 149 Rochor Rd, Albert Mall (Fu Lu Shou)
#S12 S188425. https://www.repairxpress.com.sg/location.php I had my iPad Mini 2 LCD glass replaced there, and the screen has become insensitive. I was charged S$80, a lower charge compared to the other shops, but repair work is quite badly done. Alphabets 'h' and 'i' has a habit of ghosting when you type them.
