According to the iFixit blog post, the company is now offering genuine parts for the Samsung Galaxy S20 and S21 lines. If you’ve got your hands on one of the newest phones, meaning the Samsung Galaxy S22, you’re out of luck — but the brand plans to expand the range as time goes on. It’s not just Samsung phones that can be fixed — you can also find parts for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+. The repair kits are currently only available in the United States, but much like the range itself, iFixit seems to be planning on introducing these products to the global market at some point.
The available repair parts now include replacement screens, charging ports, and back glass for all of the aforementioned models. Each of the kits will come with a detailed repair guide, which iFixit is known for. Offering this kind of reparability is a huge step for Samsung, and it certainly sets it apart from some other manufacturers who actively discourage meddling with your hardware. Replacing your screen is still going to cost a considerable amount, so try not to drop your phone — the replacement display for the S21 Ultra is priced at $240. This includes the full deal and covers everything you might need, including the phone screen, the metal frame, the bezel, and the battery. Even if the price may seem hefty, it’s still less than you’d pay at a repair shop, and certainly much less than you’d pay for a new Samsung phone.
