I would say if the warranty covers it, use the warranty. It'll most likely be free or only have shipping costs. If you get it repaired locally (off-warranty), it will most likely cost a lot (relative to the tablet). Amazon sells the tablet new for $100, but your off-warranty cost could end up being in the same range.

 

Also, Nextbook isn't a super huge brand (like Samsung or Apple), so any repair shop will probably not have the right supplies and will have to order them. This means the repair would cost as much as sending it back through the warranty...

 

Again, if it's covered, use the warranty as much as possible!

I tried asking them but they never replied so I don't know if it is covered or not

Hmm... Looking online, it doesn't look like the warranty is really well-supported or documented. So I would say you could take it to a local repair place and see if they can get you an estimate to replace it. If it's going to be expensive, you could consider upgrading to a better tablet. There are a surprising number of quality tablets for around $100. (The original Nexus 7 for $130) (Woot.com often has Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 for $99, if you can catch the deal)

 

Or, if you're feeling adventurous, try and replace it yourself with a screen bought on eBay and following YouTube guides. Up to you though. Phones and tablets are fickle devices to repair yourself.
