Hi @weemouse pity your screen was damaged. Whilst the S22 is a premium smartphone £500 definitely seems excessive. Noticed on Samsung's site replacement of S22 Ultra screen quoted at around £259.
I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
My Device- S21 Ultra 5G ( SM-998B/DS ) CSC= BTU , 12GB/256GB
One Ui 5.0,Android 13 .
Curved screens are more expensive unfortunately @weemouse
Even the flat one's for the Samsung s²² series are too.
I would certainly suggest to go to a Samsung Service Centre so you have a genuine screen fitted , the water rating and dust rating maintained and the warranty not voided.
Then I'd sugg3st a good case and screen protector suchbas the Whitestone Dome Glass Screen Protector.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I'm here to help. " This is the way. "
