    Repairing a Samsung phone! Not easy… But waiting for firmware update, even worst… Samsung phones: No thanks… Nexus phones!!!

      Keep your updates! Give me a better screen, better camera, better speed, better gaming experience, better accessories, etc. Cheers!

    People wanted a slim and water proof phone didn’t they?? I imagine a lot of sealing happened for that purpose which makes the phone harder to repair.

    Someone please explain why the regular consumer gives 2 shits if their smartphone is difficult to repair? These title make it seem as if they’re going to be do the repairs themselves.

      Cost of repair, maybe?

      I did fix an iPhone 5 and 5S screens before.
      The difference would be, for example, if a small problem occurs (let’s say USB port got damaged) in a recent Samsung it’s better for you to get a new phone. Even shops would dislike fixing it and charger accordingly. In many Samsung repairs you’ll need to disassemble the screen which is fragile and can break in the process. So these stores put that into consideration and charge the customer accordingly.
