While Samsung has done a great job strengthening the rest of its foldable phones, the displays are still a potential weak spot. As a result of this, the business has decided to drastically reduce the cost of fixing a broken Fold or Flip screen.
The Verge (opens in new tab) reports that the cost to replace the screen on a damaged Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 or Galaxy Z Flip 4 will be $220 cheaper than it was on the previous generation of these phones. Any of the greatest foldable phones from Samsung may get its screen fixed for around $29. There is a catch, though: you need to sign up for its Care+ plan, which costs $11 each month.
It’s far cheaper than having a damaged Flip 3 or Fold 3 screen fixed. If you have a Care+ membership and your device is no longer under warranty, you may have the screen fixed for $249 in the United States. Otherwise, your total cost might easily exceed $400.
To further emphasise Samsung’s dedication to bringing foldables to the masses, the firm has reduced the price of screen repairs to be on par with that for its slab-style Galaxy smartphones. Nonetheless, Samsung has not yet shared how much it would cost to repair a Z Flip 4 or Z Fold 4 that is no longer under warranty.
Samsung claims that the screens on the Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 are more resistant to wear and tear than previous models, but they will still break if the phone is dropped. Additionally, the newest foldables are water resistant but not dustproof, so a Care+ membership is not a bad idea.
