To boost sales of the new foldable products and make them more appealing, Samsung has put in place a system to make repairs very affordable.
Since Samsung Folders are still squarely in the realm of “emerging technologies”, there is some uncertainty involved in them and that extends to addressing the cost of possible repairs. Perhaps to help these phones look a little more attractive, the company is making repairs cheaper this year.
Things got off to an awkward start for the first Galaxy Fold , with users tearing off the pre-installed screen protector and the displays weren’t working left and right. Samsung has clearly improved things since then, and the company says its current displays are harder and more rigid, which makes them more wear-resistant. While its folds now offer water resistance, the lack of a dust protection rating leaves an uncertainty about long-term durability.
The good news is that while these advancements don’t make the Galaxy Z Fold 4 or Z Flip 4 the best dive device or rugged phone to take to work, if the display freezes, Samsung’s fix may be cheaper than ever. this time. With a Samsung Care Plus plan , the deductible for a damaged screen is now only a measly $ 29 .
Out-of-warranty repairs without a Care Plus subscription could go up to $ 480. We’re not sure how many out-of-warranty replacements will be performed on the new Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4, so it would be wise to keep the phones as protected as possible as usual.
