After months of waiting, Samsung's self-repair program has finally begun in the United States. The initiative was announced in April, along with iFixit. Only today are you able to purchase parts for your damaged Samsung Galaxy phone or tablet before making your own repairs, at least on selected models.
The launch of the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S21, and Galaxy Tab S7+ will be covered by the program. However, all variations of each smartphone series, including Ultra and Plus, will be covered. Replacement screens, batteries, back glass, and charging ports are only covered by the program, which prices range from $67 to $240.
Amazon has the Galaxy Tab S8 for $100 less.

Samsung will provide owners with the option to purchase a complete kit that includes all of the necessary tools for each replacement part, as well as a display suction cup, rather than Apple's self-service program.

Each repair will be accompanied by an iFixit replacement manual that you may download from the company's website. There are also available online video tutorials. More important, Samsung will provide a free return slips so that you may send the damaged items back to them for recycling.

Samsung urges consumers to check the warranty status of their devices before doing their own repair. In some areas in the United States, the South Korean brand is even offering a same-day service or a contactless mail-in repair.
