Samsung partners uBreakiFix chain for Galaxy phone repairs


With 300 uBreakiFix stores around the U.S., Samsung is dead set on making sure that your device is repaired and sent to you that very day so that you do not have to go through the trouble of bringing in a new device to set up.

Getting a broken phone fixed can be stressful. When you go to a Samsung-authorized fix shop like uBreakiFix, you can avoid those hassles and spend more time using your device instead of trying to worry about getting it fixed.

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.

Samsung said "the majority" of the continental United States population lives within a 30-mile radius of an authorized uBreakiFix service location. Furthermore, another 200 locations will be added by this time next year.

Galaxy owners can easily schedule an appointment at one of the Samsung Care authorized uBreakiFix service locations nationwide, or simply drop off their device without an appointment. Samsung wants to make the process a little more convenient. Both companies are promising same-day repairs, usually in less than 2 hours for "most" issues.

Samsung now has miniature stores within Best Buy retail stores that customers can visit for troubleshooting and fix.

Seems like Samsung is going a smart way around one of the largest appeals of the iPhone, the Apple Store.

Elsewhere there are similarities to the Galaxy S8 models that preceded these two handsets, including the batteries and front-facing camera tech - that means the AR Emoji feature Samsung introduced with the S9 is largely down to software upgrades.
