The drawback of first-party repairs is that they might be pricey; nevertheless, you are certain to receive authentic, official parts and specialists who know what they’re doing. Contrast this with third-party repairs, where you occasionally may receive non-official components due to cost-cutting measures or because manufacturers would not supply them to unofficial repair facilities.
Since then, businesses like Samsung have started their own self-repair initiatives, which they’re now extending from the US to Europe. This self-repair program would include the Galaxy S20, S21, S22, Galaxy Book Pro, and Galaxy Book Pro 360 devices.
Repairing your Samsung Galaxy yourself is possible: Self-Repair is available in Europe
However, there is one thing that has to be said, and it’s crucial. The program was introduced in the US back in 2022 through a collaboration with the well-known repair platform iFixit. Since this is exclusively offered in the US, residents of the EU will not be able to benefit from the alliance. This doesn’t preclude people from receiving official parts or instructions, but it can make things more difficult for beginners who are trying to fix their own devices. The program will be expanded to include nations including Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
Currently, the official Self Repair page in Germany is not yet accessible, while it is live for other mentioned markets. Additionally, it is important to note that the Self Repair program for the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 is exclusively available in Germany, Italy, Sweden, and the UK.
Customers of three of Samsung Electronics’ most recent flagship models may now replace the screen, back glass, and charging ports with the company’s official smartphone self-repair kits. The service is being offered in cooperation with specialized vendors ASWO and 2service, each of which has been given a set of nations. As authorities in the European Union and other nations consider severe regulations to increase the lifetime of gadgets and reduce electronic waste, steps are being taken to offer the service in those nations. Businesses like Apple and Nokia licensee HMD Global also offer similar capabilities.
Further, the company stated that” Galaxy customers who wish to make their own device repairs can access the tools they need, including repair kits and genuine Samsung parts, and the program supports repairs to Galaxy S20, S21 and S22 products, as well as the 15.6in Galaxy Book Pro and 15.6in Galaxy Book Pro 360.”
“Samsung is constantly working to extend the life cycle of its devices so that users can enjoy the high performance of their Galaxy device for as long as possible,” said TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics. ‘We are committed to extending the ability to access our Self-Repair program around the world, improving the repairability of our products.’
