After launching the Galaxy self-repair program in the US last year and expanding it to South Korea last month, Samsung has now brought the program to Europe – by the end of June it will be available in Belgium, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
Right now the program covers the three previous generations of S-series flagships, the Galaxy S20, S21 and S23, with replacement screens, back panels and charging connectors being available. Note that the screen replacement kit also includes a new battery.
You can pick up a set of tools that is required to take the phone apart for just under €30. A new charging port for a Galaxy S20 will cost you €50, the back panel is about the same, while an official display is €200. The parts for higher end models cost more, the same goes for newer models, e.g. an S22 Ultra screen is €310. You can see the parts prices in Germany here.
Samsung has instructional videos that will guide you through the process of removing the old part and installing the new one (and all the steps in between).
Besides the phones, the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 laptops are also part of the self-repair program. The following parts are available: case front, case rear, display, battery, touchpad, power key with fingerprint reader and rubber feet.
Samsung is working with authorized distributors such as ASWO and 2Service to handle the sales and distribution of the repair kits.
Note that the self-repair program is already live in several countries, but others (e.g. the UK) will have to wait until the end of the month before parts are available. Also, if you’re wondering why there are no parts for the Galaxy S23 series, it’s probably because they are still new and under warranty. Parts for the S23 trio should be added soon, though. The S22 phones weren’t part of the original launch in the US either, they were added earlier this year.
