Samsung expands its self-repair program to more countries


The problem with first-party repairs is that they can be expensive, but the upside is that you are guaranteed to get genuine, official components as well as technicians who (should) know what they’re doing. This is versus third-party repairs where sometimes the parts you get might not be official, either to cut costs or because companies refuse to provide them to non-official repair shops.

Companies like Samsung have since launched their own self-repair programs, which they will now be expanding from the US to Europe. According to the announcement, this self-repair program will cover devices like the Galaxy S20, S21, S22, Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360 devices.

There is one thing that should be noted, though, and this is important. When the program was launched in the US back in 2022, it was done through a partnership with popular repair platform iFixit. This is only available in the US, which means that those living in the EU won’t be able to enjoy the fruits of that partnership.

This doesn’t mean that they won’t get official components or guides, but it could make things a bit trickier for novices who are attempting to fix their devices themselves. The expansion of the program in the EU will cover countries like Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and the UK.
