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.
In a recent move, Samsung has dropped the price to repair the screens on its Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 phones.
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 a 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.
