  • Samsung Galaxy S9 Teardown: Dual Aperture Tricks

Samsung says that these uBreakiFix centers will be able to offer same-day fix service in most cases.

Currently, uBreakiFix has more than 300 locations, but that's expected to expand by almost 200 more by early 2019.

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. -(Business Wire)-Samsung Electronics America, Inc. today announced it is bringing same-day, in-person authorized service to Galaxy phone owners nationwide.

The companies say they will welcome walk-in customers in addition to those who schedule an appointment online for free in-warranty repairs. Samsung typically puts a one-year manufacturer's warranty on its Galaxy flagships.

This partnership will convert over 300 uBreakiFix locations across the United States to Samsung "Authorized Service Providers".

The devices which are included in the project are Galaxy S9 and S9+, Galaxy S8 and S8+, Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, Galaxy S6 and S6+, Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy Note 5.

Amazon's Alexa app brings Voice and Video calling functionality to Tablets

Apple's TrueDepth sensor is one of the big highlights of the iPhone X experience, providing everything from impressive Face ID security to goofy, animated Animoji that mimic your own facial movements.

UBreakiFix service locations can be found in most major U.S. cities, and are created to reach most of the population living in the continental U.S. By next year, Samsung plans to add 200 more support centers to make the locations even more accessible. Still, with most of the phones on Samsung's list of supported devices being water-resistant, hopefully that won't be such a problem.

T-Mobile is rolling out an early update to the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, two days ahead of the phones' official release date. This appears to be a step in the right direction, though, and should lead to a little more convenience for clumsy Galaxy fans.
