Samsung and iFixit launched a self-service repair program for Galaxy devices that was announced this spring. As part of the program, the user will be able to repair the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S21 smartphone or the Galaxy Tab S7+ tablet on their own by purchasing original components and certified tools from the iFixit website along with repair manuals.
Initially, the selection of components will be small – displays, batteries, charging ports and back panels. Prices range from $67 for a charging port for each model to $227 for a display for the Tab S7+.
The kit includes a free return invoice, which you can use to send defective parts to a Samsung service for recycling. The self-repair program is currently limited to the United States, but will expand over time. The list of devices that can be repaired with their help, as well as the range of spare parts, is also expanding.
It should also be noted that the self-repair program does not currently cover devices from the Galaxy S22 or Tab S8 family. In this case, Samsung recommends that users contact dedicated device repair services.
