Samsung and iFixit now offer Samsung New Self-Repair Program tools for Galaxy devices. Many companies endorse self-repair programs as an alternative to professional repairs or upgrades. With iFixit, Samsung has officially launched its self-repair program for Galaxy phones and tablets.
Samsung self-repair program is ultimately available.
It took almost half a year, but Samsung new self-repair program is ultimately available. The iFixit team-up helps you fix your Samsung Galaxy S20, Galaxy S21, or Galaxy Tab S7 by buying officially sanctioned components and tools, complete with guides to walk you through the repair process. The earliest selection is limited to screen and batteries, charging ports, and back glass, with prices ranging between 67( for a charging port on any model) to $227(for a Tab S7 display).
Now you can buy genuine Samsung parts for the Galaxy series and the Galaxy Tab.
Samsung declared back in March that it was working with iFixit to give official replacement parts for Galaxy phones and tablets, besides updating repair guides and other documentation. You can now buy genuine Samsung parts for the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S21 series and the Galaxy Tab S7. Form guides have also you updated and developed for those devices.
The self-repair program is currently available to the US
The self-repair kits include a free return label to help you send the broken parts to Samsung for recycling. The self-repair program is currently only available to the US, but the companies expect supporting more countries, devices, and part repairs.
Buy a part of New Self-Repair Program, and you will have everything you want.
Samsung’s launch arrives a few months after Apple’s. It’s formerly better and worse. While Apple does not yet offer self-repair kits beyond smartphones, it covers a broader array of components( similar to cameras and SIM trays). It is more granular(you can even order screws by themselves). Still, Samsung also does not bear that you rent or buy a different toolkit and does not require a phone call to finish the repair process. Buy a part, and you will have everything you want.
The self-repair option does not presently cover the Galaxy S22 or Tab S8 families, and Samsung is keen to point its less DIY-oriented users toward regular repair providers. We would add that this is not precisely a generous gesture — Samsung, Apple, and others are meeting pressure from national and state officials who either implement or propose the right to repair rules. Vendors might not have a wide choice but to let you fix devices on your terms.
The Samsung New Self-Repair Program parts are only available in some components.
Many devices are missing from that shortlist. Samsung sells two other Tab S7 models, the Galaxy S22 series and innumerable Galaxy A budget phones. For now, replacement parts are only available in the United States, and some components (like camera modules) aren’t available. iFixit says it’s “working towards more devices and added comprehensive parts.”
Samsung New Self-Repair program is like iFixit’s partnership with Google
The new program is like iFixit’s partnership with Google, which officially started in June and offered similar replacement parts and official repair guides for Google Pixel phones. Part availability is better with Google’s devices, though — you can buy (at least some) replacement components for all of Google’s phones since the 2017 Pixel 2.
Samsung New Self-Repair Program could be a historic move.
Still, Samsung New Self-Repair Program could be a historic move. However, this gives you a way to protract the valid date of a Samsung device without worrying about turnaround times or potentially high out-of-warranty repair costs, If you are considerately comfortable with screwdrivers and smudges. That could reduce waste and offer more control when upgrading your mobile gear.
Samsung New Self-Repair Program is far simpler and Better Than Apple’s
Indeed, in its current limited form, Samsung New Self-Repair Program is far simpler and more accessible than Apple’s self-repair program that started in May. Apple requires people to rent tools and equipment for iPhone repairs, and completing a screen or battery exchange involves calling a remote technician for the iPhone to recognize it as a genuine part. Samsung and Google don’t have their devices’ exact digital lockout mechanisms.
