The previous year’s attention seeker, the Galaxy S22 Ultra device, has an average repair time of 48.1 minutes with 33.3% repairs. On the other hand, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 device has been labeled with the “100% difficult repairs” rating. The device not only has an average repairing time of 58.4 minutes per repair but its repair instructions are also harder and difficult to follow. Google’s Pixel 7 device is also in the same category.

Besides, the Galaxy A53 and Galaxy A72 are also in the same situation. They do have shorter average repair times than the Galaxy S22 Ultra, but their repair steps are difficult; hence, they haven’t been considered an easy task. Overall, Samsung phones released in the year 2022 are the easiest to repair at home.

However, this study didn’t include 2023 models, but there is a high possibility that Samsung will maintain its position with this year’s models as well, including the flagship Galaxy S23 series.
