Unfortunately, unless you're an Apple customer, getting an in-person fix for your damaged device without voiding your warranty can be a hard task.
This partnership will convert over 300 uBreakiFix locations across the USA to Samsung "Authorized Service Providers". Plus, the companies plan to add nearly 200 additional service locations by early 2019.
Cracked your Galaxy S9 display, or broken the headphone jack on your Galaxy Note 8? "If you break anything on your Galaxy S9, this video shows the process of me repairing and replacing all the major components". Still, with most of the phones on Samsung's list of supported devices being water-resistant, hopefully that won't be such a problem.
Currently, uBreakiFix has more than 300 locations, but that's expected to expand by almost 200 more by early 2019.More news: Russell Westbrook just fourth player to 100 triple-doubles

According to Samsung, most repairs will take under two hours to complete.
Samsung did not previously have this kind of quality support in the United States, but this is prone to change thanks to the new partnership; it will allow Samsung to provide quick fix service to customers in the United States. For the moment, it seems uBreakiFix and Samsung Care will be focusing more on fixing faulty phones than demonstrating value-add features, however. For customers, that means uBreakiFix's repairs won't void your warranty and the company's technicians will only use "genuine" Samsung parts.
The authorized uBreakiFix stores, which are located in all major USA 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.
