Samsung Self-Repair: Fix Your Broken Galaxy Device Today

0

After several months of waiting, Samsung’s self-repair is finally launched in the United States. The initiative was announced in April and in collaboration with iFixit. Only now can you finally order parts for your broken Samsung Galaxy phone or tablet before doing your own repairs, at least on some models.

TL;DR

  • Samsung’s self-repair program initially covers the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S21, and Tab S7.
  • The self-repair program will offer options for a full repair kit or part-only replacements.
  • It is not yet known whether it will be extended to other Samsung Galaxy models such as the Galaxy S22.

As already mentioned, the program will only cover the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S21 and Galaxy Tab S7+ at launch. But this will include all variants of each series of smartphones such as Ultra and Plus models. The OEM parts selection is also limited to replacement screens, batteries, rear glass, and charging ports with prices ranging from $67 to $240.

Unlike Apple’s self-service program that requires renting a bulky device, Samsung will offer owners the option of ordering a complete kit that will include all the tools needed for each spare part. Users who opt for the kit can find precision screwdrivers and prying tools as well as a display suction cup.

Of course, each repair will come with an iFixit replacement guide that you can download from the company’s website. There are also video tutorials available posted online. More importantly, Samsung will provide a free return slip so you can send the broken parts back to them for recycling.

But before doing their own repair, Samsung reminds owners to check their device’s warranty status and whether it’s covered by Samsung Care+. If you’d rather not repair your own device, the South Korean brand even offers contactless mail-in repair or same-day service in select locations in the US. It’s unclear if or when Samsung will expand its coverage to other models, especially the Galaxy S22 series and the Galaxy Tab S8.

Are you sure you can do your own repairs if you have a guide and the necessary tools? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
