Samsung has launched a self-repair program for smartphones. But not all

Samsung launched its own smartphone repair program, following Google and Apple. It is true that it has some limitations. First, parts are only available for Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S21 models (as well the Galaxy Tab S7+ tablet) and second, there is a limited range of components – users can purchase (and replace) the screen, charging port, or back panel. Display and battery are the most commonly requested components for repair, but they are not available.

As with Google, the program was launched in collaboration by iFixit. You can order parts on the iFixit site. There are also detailed instructions to replace a component. The user will be given a label to return the old screen to recycling when they purchase an original screen.

Samsung claims that parts will be priced the same as authorized service centers (affiliated repair providers) in terms of pricing. The Galaxy S21 Ultra screen is $233, which is the most expensive spare part. The back panels and charging connectors are generally $60-70. Samsung said prices can change at any time. The program is only currently available in the United States.
