For a start, if you're planning on repairing these phones yourself at home, you've got a tough challenge on your hands.
The authorized uBreakiFix stores, which are located in all major United States metro areas, will offer front and back screen replacements, battery replacements, port and camera repairs and other in- and out-of-warranty services for phones ranging from the Samsung Galaxy S6 to the S9, as well as the Note 5 and Note 8. Apparently, more than 300 uBreakiFix locations across the country will open their gates starting March 15 to all Samsung customers who own Galaxy devices.
Currently, uBreakiFix has more than 300 locations, but that's expected to expand by almost 200 more by early 2019. The Samsung Care authorized service locations will provide front and back screen replacements, battery replacements, port and camera repairs, and other in and out-of-warranty support services.
The partnership won't cover every Galaxy phone ever made, but it does hit most Samsung flagship phones from the past four years: every Galaxy S flagship since the Galaxy S6, the Galaxy Note 5, and the Galaxy Note 8 are listed as eligible for same-day service from uBreakiFix off the bat. Plus, the companies plan to add nearly 200 additional service locations by early 2019.
