The Galaxy S20 and S21 family of phones, as well as the Galaxy Tab S7+, will be able to replace their phone screen, back glass, and charging ports. Newer models, such as the Galaxy S22, and Samsung's foldables, will not be included.
New display kits will include a return label so that customers may return any discarded components to Samsung for recycling at no cost to the consumer.
Users will have unlimited access to iFixit's extensive library of online repair guides, which include both visual and written step-by-step instructions. If you have a question, go to the iFixit community forum and ask for assistance.
"Samsung Self-Repair is another method for customers to prolong the life of their devices before they are recycled," according to Mark Williams, Samsung Electronics America's vice president of customer service.
iFixit has been heavily investing in the DIY repair industry recently. Late last year, iFixit teamed up with Microsoft to make it simpler for consumers to repair Surface devices, and in April, Google signed on to offer genuine repair parts for its Pixel phones.
Samsung has over 550 "We Come To You" vans that perform in-person repair within a 30-60-minute drive. There's also a mail-in service option if you'd rather send your device directly to Samsung for repair.
Sammy is further experimenting with a new feature known as "repair mode," which protects sensitive data from unscrupulous repair technicians. We're surprised that this feature has already been implemented on Windows.
