Samsung just made screen repair so cheap it could change your mind on foldables
- In the past, Samsung would charge $249 to repair an out-of-warranty Galaxy Z Fold or Flip screen.
- Samsung has cut the price of screen repairs for the Fold 4 and Flip 4 to match the fee for standard phone screen repairs.
- It now could cost as low as $29 to fix these screens.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 were just announced this week. While the Fold 4 and Flip 4 improve upon previous designs, the question of durability lingers. In the past, screen protectors have become unglued and have been vulnerable to dust damage. As a result, the news of Samsung dropping repair costs couldn’t have come at a better time.
According to The Verge, Samsung Care Plus customers that pay $11 per month for their subscription were usually charged $249 to repair an out-of-warranty Fold or Flip screen. This year, however, Samsung has lowered the deductible to match that of standard phone screen repairs, meaning the cost could end up being as low as $29.
Being among Samsung’s most expensive phones, a price cut for repairs on these devices is a welcomed change. It may even be enough of an incentive to push those who were on the fence to finally pick up one of these handsets.
