Samsung has joined the self-repair train after the company announced its own self-repair program giving Galaxy S20, S21 and Tab S7+ users in the United States access to spare parts, tools and guides to repair their own devices. The company partnered with iFixit to provide customers with said tools and guides. 

iFixit has worked with manufacturers like Motorola, Steam and most recently, Microsoft to provide repair tools and guides for many popular devices on the market. This announcement also follows Apple’s self-repair program, which saw the company finally making spare parts and tools required to repair iPhones available to customers. 

Customers who wish to repair their own phones can get parts and repair tools through iFixit, Samsung 837 and Samsung’s retails and service locations at the same price as the company’s affiliated repair providers.

When writing, users will get access to displays, back glass and charging port spares. Samsung claims that it’ll be adding more parts and phones to the service moving forward, a rather important thing considering its latest S22 lineup is missing from the program. 

The program also makes it easy to recycle your old parts. Samsung says that new display kits will ship with a return label allowing customers to ship their discarded parts back to Samsung for recycling at no additional cost. 

The program seems to be slightly easier to access and go through with as compared to Apple’s, which has rather strict rules and a heavy cost that almost makes you not want to repair yourself. That said, Samsung did make it a point to remind users of its extensive service network that covers over 80% of the US population with 2000 stores and a repair time of two hours or less.
