The service promises a two-hour or less turnaround time for devices submitted for repairs.
It also gives Samsung phone owners an Apple Care-like presence around the country, where users can get their devices services without having to send them off or trust an unauthorised third-party to carry out the work. Samsung is also holding a series of roadshows in popular malls around the country, where Malaysians cannot only experience the new phone for themselves, but also be rewarded for purchasing them at the roadshows.
Samsung announced that it will make available same-day support services to Samsung Galaxy phone owners nationwide.
Trump Blocks Broadcom Takeover Of Qualcomm On National Security Concerns
By contrast, some 44% of analysts felt that way about Qualcomm before Broadcom made its first bid for the company in November. Westwood Holdings Group Inc. purchased a new position in shares of QUALCOMM during the 2nd quarter valued at about $114,000.
Samsung care will offer screen replacements, camera and port repairs, and new batteries to phones in warranty or out of warranty. While the engadget article states budget Samsung phones are out of luck, clicking the "Start your repair" button on the uBreakiFix website, shows phones like the S4, and even the j3 and j7 listed.
According to Korea's The Bell, Samsung has assembled 2 million more S9 units to sell in year-one, than it did for the S8.
Currently, uBreakiFix has more than 300 locations, but that's expected to expand by almost 200 more by early 2019. That should make it a lot more worthwhile than the so-so original released with the S8. Those who weren't enrolled there were typically asked to call a Samsung representative for support and either ship their busted phone to a company facility or find their own fix service. In similar fashion, Apple's iPhone X is one of the company's revolutionary smartphone with a new design and offers a quite refreshing experience for the iOS users. For the moment, it seems uBreakiFix and Samsung Care will be focusing more on fixing faulty phones than demonstrating value-add features, however.
