  • Samsung Galaxy S9 Teardown: Dual Aperture Tricks

Despite looking remarkably similar to the Galaxy S8, Samsung is ready for its new S9 to sell more units during its first year.

Starting in the spring of 2018, the Swedish star footballer will act as the brand's ambassador across the Nordic region with "the mission to challenge, test and promote Samsung's products in completely new ways", a press release says. In an effort to streamline that process for its customers, Samsung has just partnered with uBreakiFix to leverage over 300 of the company's retail stores, authorizing them to work on Samsung Care repairs.

Comparatively, the facial recognition system of the Galaxy S9 is less sophisticated than that found in Apple iPhone X. The S9 comes with a plus point, it offers fingerprint scanner as a backup on the rear panel of the smartphone. If you drop an iPhone and break its screen, you can head into an Apple Store to get it fixed.

One way or the other, Samsung will make the Galaxy S10 a device to remember. In the case of out-of-warranty fix services, fees may apply. Major mobile carriers in the United States offer their own protection plans as well. To complete the task requires considerable effort.In the end, experts claim that the Samsung Galaxy S9 can not be repaired even in service centre, because the procedure for replacing the screen and battery are so complex as possible.


Previously, Galaxy owners did not have many options to get their devices repaired.

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

"This announcement marks a fundamental shift in our care offerings to consumers and underscores our commitment to provide Samsung customers with support anywhere, anytime our customers need it", said Michael Lawder, Samsung's SVP of Customer Care.
