Samsung partners uBreakiFix chain for Galaxy phone repairs


Getting a broken phone fixed can be stressful.

Samsung Care's mission is at least made significantly easier today with the announcement of over 300 sanctioned service locations in the USA providing same-day support, as well as repairs conducted by Samsung "certified pros" within "two hours or less" for "most" issues. Another 200 stores should be added by 2019.

Smartphone accessory maker X-Doria announced a number of new protective cases meant to accommodate the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, Samsung's most premium Android handsets to date. Starting today, the Korean company is rolling out their new "Samsung Care" service, developed in partnership with device fix chain uBreakiFix.

You can simply walk in and drop off your device at one of the locations or schedule an appointment online.

According to Samsung, "walk-ins are always welcome" and uBreakiFix will offer "same-day repairs" for most issues.

Samsung says the majority of people in the continental USA live within 30 miles of one of the authorised locations, which is handy.

Most repairs should take less than two hours, and the company says it plans to expand service beyond these initial stores later this year.

The authorized uBreakiFix stores, which are located in all major United States metro areas, will offer front and back screen replacements, battery replacements, port and camera repairs and other in- and out-of-warranty services for phones ranging from the Samsung Galaxy S6 to the S9, as well as the Note 5 and Note 8.

Samsung is certainly trying to maintain the same pace at which Apple provides its after-sales service but the California-based giant is far ahead of other companies in terms of phone maintenance and service availability.
