How To Repair Cracked Screen Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus

Cracked screen repair is costly wherever you go, and the most expensive your phone is, the higher the service charge, and it varies from shop to shop. For instance, you will be a few hundred dollars poorer once you get your Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus cracked screen repaired, and that’s the cheapest. But since mobile devices are a multi-billion dollar industry nowadays, it wouldn’t be difficult to find a shop in your area that specializes in repairing broken displays. Cellphone repair is easy as long as you know what you’re doing. The thing is, not everyone has to guts to remove even one screw from a thousand-dollar smartphone.
You always have two choices when it comes to dealing with a cracked screen on your Galaxy S9 Plus. Either you do it yourself or bring it to the local shop or a Samsung store. Of course, for those who have sufficient know-how with smartphone repair, they may opt for the first choice, but for those who don’t want to take the risk, the second option and a lot of waiting hours or days will be the best.

How To Repair Cracked Screen Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus

Repair Galaxy S9 Plus Cracked Screen Yourself

Depending on your know-how, this could be your cheapest option. You can buy the Galaxy S9 Plus screen replacement kit online and tear your phone down to remove the broken screen and replace it with a working one. It’s easy to buy the replacement kit as you can find original replace units online or at any Samsung shops or stores. The challenging part is how to teardown your phone successfully without damaging your phone even more.
As you would expect from a phone with IP68 dust- and water-proofing, almost every component is correctly glued onto the frame. So, aside from all the screws, you will have to remove as well as other parts, you will have to deal with dry glue and be very careful in detaching flex cables as they’re brittle and can easily break. A heat gun is a handy tool when tearing down a phone like your Galaxy S9+. If you’re confident you can do an excellent job in tearing your phone piece by piece, I suggest following the steps prepared by iFixit as they’re more detailed than others.

Find Professional Screen Repair Near You

Depending on your area, there could be several Samsung stores near you where you can bring your phone to have the cracked screen replaced, that is if you’re willing to pay a hefty price for the screen. You will be charged for the new display as well as the technician’s services, and you may have to wait for a few hours to be able to use your phone again, depending on how bad the screen was damaged.
If you’re in the area where there are no Samsung stores around, you can try finding local shops that cater to screen repairs. You may google “screen repair near me,” and Google may give you a ton of options to choose from.
Another service we would also to introduce to you is from Amazon. The company also offers smartphone repair services, and instead of you going to their shop, their technicians will find you and repair your device wherever you want to meet up. If you’re willing to pay for a screen repair fee but don’t have time to find a shop to bring your phone to, then this could be your best option.
So, that’s pretty much it. I hope that this short post may be able to help you one way or another. If you have other issues with your Galaxy S9 Plus that you want to share with us, feel free to contact us anytime or leave a comment below.
