Samsung Expands Its Self-Repair Program With Over 50 Devices Added, Ranging From Phones, TVs, And Even Soundbars

We have come a long way since repairing your phones or tablets on your own was nearly impossible. Thanks to companies like Samsung and some pressure from regulatory authorities, we are finally getting closer to an era where repairing your devices yourself will be easy. The company already has an excellent self-repair program, and now it is looking to expand it even further, with many more devices being added to the program as we speak.

Samsung really wants users to be able to use their devices for longer periods of time with new additions to its self-repair program

The purpose behind this move is Samsung trying to help consumers be in possession of their devices for a longer period of time. There are a lot of benefits to keeping your phones, tablets, and other electronics with you for a longer time. It helps reduce landfills, e-waste, and other similar impacts on the environment. Plus, it ensures that users are no longer forced to buy new devices once they get the ones they have fixed.

Today’s update now makes around 50 Samsung devices compatible with the latest change. These include the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S21, Galaxy S22, Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23 FE, Galaxy Z Flip 5, and Galaxy Z Fold 5. At the time of writing, the Fan Edition variants are not supported, but that might change in the coming weeks.

Aside from smartphones, Samsung also added other devices into the self-repair program. You can check the complete comprehensive list below:

As you can see, Samsung is pretty confident in making sure that its devices receive appropriate support going forward. I am really glad that the company has worked on this, as we do not always see something that is so comprehensive. The company wants the users to be able to repair their devices with ease, and it is such an excellent move.

Samsung is currently offering repairs through home, mail-in, and walk-in repair services. Company-certified professionals will provide all the services and cover products that are in-warranty or out-of-warranty. Of course, the parts used will also be genuine.

Samsung is taking things further, and they have talked about how they will cover over 99.99% of the consumers that are in the U.S. Consumers will also get locations for after-sales service as well as repair locations that are within a 4-hour radius of their location. However, if the repair location is not available within a 4-hour drive, users will actually have the ability to have a technician visit them.

In all honesty, I think Samsung has done a great job at making this a reality. I do understand that it might not be easy for everyone to get the repair done, but if the company is offering you the ability to have it serviced by a professional, that makes everything even better.
