Got a Busted Galaxy Phone? Samsung Has a Quick Fix

Samsung Galaxy S9 Teardown: Dual Aperture Tricks It's now easier to get your Samsung phone repaired in the US

Apple customers can walk into any Apple store and get their smartphone fixed in no time.

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

The good folks over at iFixit have been ripping apart a Samsung Galaxy S9 and a Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, revealing a few hidden secrets about the brand new flagship phones. The company says out-of-warranty issues like liquid damage and corrosion won't be eligible for same-day service but that other out-of-warranty damages, like cracked screens, can still be fixed at a uBreakiFix store.

Starting March 15th, tomorrow, Samsung customers can go to any of the ~300 Samsung Care authorized uBreakiFix locations and get same-day support for their Galaxy smartphones. According to Samsung, all Galaxy owners will get authorized care in two hours or even less. As always, stay tuned for more Samsung news!

France to sue Google, Apple over developer contracts
He accused Google and Apple of imposing tariffs on developers wishing to sell their apps to the internet giants. The findings of a similar inquiry into Amazon a year ago are being reviewed by a tribunal, his office said.

In a press release Samsung advises device phones to schedule an appointment via its own website and then take it along to their nearest uBreakiFix location.

Samsung Galaxy users now have an official fix option for broken or damaged phones.

The shops are auhtorised under Samsung Care standards and use only Samsung parts.

Samsung says the majority of people in the continental U.S. live within 30 miles of one of the authorised locations, which is handy. For the moment, it seems uBreakiFix and Samsung Care will be focusing more on fixing faulty phones than demonstrating value-add features, however.
