Samsung Adds the S22 Lineup and Galaxy Books to Its Self Repair Program

The right to self repair is something that has long been debated in the world of tech. Most consumers feel that it is their right to be able to repair their own devices, but in spite of the fact that this is the case tech companies have been hesitant to do so since it might leave them with fewer sources of revenue than might have been the case otherwise.

Still, many major tech corporations have started to realize that they need to give consumers what they want. Samsung is a huge example of this, with the Korean tech juggernaut recently adding a few new devices to its self repair program.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that all of Samsung’s flagship phones, namely the Galaxy S22, S22+ and S22 Ultra are all going to be covered under the self repair program moving forward. The Galaxy Book Pro along with the Galaxy Book Pro 360 are also being added to the mix.

Such developments are positive steps for consumer welfare because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up helping them cut down on repair costs. Consumers can now buy repair kits directly from Samsung, and that will go a long way towards making self repair sustainable, cheaper and above all else convenient.

This self repair program is part of Samsung’s collaboration with iFixit. They are selling replacement parts as well as self repair kits through the repair hub, and we might soon see parts and kits for the aforementioned models making their way to stores.

Samsung is not alone in taking such steps. Google is launching iFixit as well, and both these corporations are playing catch up with Apple after the trillion dollar enterprise introduced Self Service Repair back in 2021. Now that all major smartphone companies are offering this service, we might see a positive sentiment among consumers since they will now have more control over the devices that they are using for communication and work.
