Samsung partners with Best Buy for same-day Galaxy smartphone repairs

Samsung is giving you even more ways to get your phone fixed in a jiffy.

What you need to know

  • Samsung launches a nationwide repair service with Best Buy.
  • From October 26, users will enable to enter select Best Buy stores for in and out-of-warranty Galaxy repairs.
  • Samsung foldable will be supported starting November 2.

Samsung and Best Buy are partnering to bring authorized repair and troubleshooting services to Galaxy smartphone owners across the U.S.

Samsung made the announcement on Monday, turning more than 100 Best Buy locations into Authorized Care Service Centers. This means that starting October 26, anyone with a Samsung Galaxy S or Note series smartphone will be able to get support for their device from Samsung-certified Geek Squad Agents.

Services include various repairs to parts such as the front and back glass, cameras, ports, batteries, and more. The company says that authorized technicians will only use Samsung parts.

Samsung already offers in-home, mail-in, and walk-in services for its smartphones, and the carrier boasts more than "550 Samsung Authorized Care locations and over 600 independent service providers nationwide." Adding a well-known retailer like Best Buy to the list should make device support more accessible for users across the U.S.

Additionally, Samsung will expand the service to include its best foldable phones like the Galaxy Z Fold 3. This should help ease some owners who may still have concerns over durability, especially given the cost to repair these types of devices and the discontinuation of its Z Premier service.

The list of devices Samsung will support as far back as the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8. Most of these devices will be eligible for same-day repair, with the exception of foldables, speaking to just how difficult it is to repair these devices.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
