The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are good-looking phones, but with glass on the front and back, some customers are bound to break their expensive new smartphone. The good news is that Samsung has announced a new partnership to help those people.
Samsung is teaming with uBreakiFix to offer same-day repair support in the US. This means that owners of select Galaxy phones will be able to get repairs for many issues the same day that they happen, and within two hours or less for most repairs.
With this partnership, uBreakiFix locations are now Samsung Care authorized. This means that they use genuine Samsung parts for repairs and they have proprietary Samsung tools, and repairs are conducted by certified Samsung pros.
uBreakiFix can provide screen replacements, battery replacements, port and camera repairs, and other in and out-of-warranty services. They can perform repairs on the Galaxy S9 and S9+, Galaxy S8 and S8+, Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, Galaxy S6 and S6+, Galaxy Note 5, and Galaxy Note 8.
There are more than 300 uBreakiFix locations across the U.S. that are Samsung Care authorized. If you've got a Galaxy phone that needs fixing, you can begin the repair process right here.
This partnership with uBreakiFix is a great move for Samsung. These Galaxy smartphones are expensive, and now if a customer has any issues that need a repair, they can just go to a nearby uBreakiFix store to get it taken care of. This gives Samsung's phones an Apple Store-style repair option rather than requiring most customers to mail their device in for repair, and it means that they're getting repairs done by certified techs using genuine parts rather than having to visit a third-party repair shop that may be of questionable quality.
