Plus, the companies plan to add nearly 200 additional service locations by early 2019. Samsung says it will cover "more than 300" authorized service locations in the U.S., which are said to reach "the majority of the continental United States population, within a 30-mile radius." uBreakiFix's website says the company runs just under 380 stores across the country.

Unfortunately, unless you're an Apple customer, getting an in-person fix for your damaged device without voiding your warranty can be a hard task. What's more, it says that most repairs can be completed in two hours or less, and are fixed on-site. The company hasn't really said anything about what might be causing these Galaxy S9 Samsung Pay issues, not yet anyway.

Talking about the available color options: iPhone X is available in just two colors: silver and Space Grey whereas the Samsung Galaxy S9 comes in Coral Blue, Lilac Purple, Midnight Black and the Orchid Grey color variants. The South Korean handset maker confirmed it will kick off a same-day in-person authorized support service in collaboration with uBreakiFix.

Samsung said that the owners of Galaxy phones have options like taking a scheduled appointment for the fix of their phone or can go to any uBreakiFix center and drop the phone without a prior appointment. You obviously don't need a valid warranty to restore your broken phone to good working order, but be warned that "fees may apply".

Currently, Samsung sells an extended warranty service called "Premium Care" that costs $12 a month and offers in-home support and extra coverage against accidental damages. Still, with most of the phones on Samsung's list of supported devices being water-resistant, hopefully that won't be such a problem.
