Samsung and iFixit launch self-service smartphone repair service


Samsung and iFixit have launched their repair program, which allows Galaxy S20, S21 and Tab S7 Plus owners to buy replacement parts for their devices and have them repaired by themselves.

It should be noted that the types of repair work under this program are limited. Samsung, however, says it plans to expand the list of devices and repair types in the future.

According to Samsung, users will be able tobuy parts and tools to replace the screen, rear glass and charging port. In terms of pricing, the company says consumers will pay the same money for parts as "affiliated repair providers." For example, an S20 display assembly will cost $199.99. In Russia, this is not yet available.
