What you need to know
- uBreakiFix has now rolled out a new program for phone repair.
- It's called "We Come To You", and it's exactly what it sounds like.
- You'll be able to get you Galaxy or Pixel repaired at your home or office in two hours or less.
It's going to be easier to get your Android phone repaired in the U.S. with uBreakiFix's new "We Come To You" program. In addition to current curbside and in-store repairs, now uBreakiFix will be able to dispatch a repair technician to your preferred location (most likely your home or your office), so you can get your phone fixed.
It'll be made available in the U.S. and the company will support common repairs for smartphones including screen and battery replacements. If you're going to be fixing a Pixel or Samsung phone, you'll likely be using the company in most cases, so this really does offer flexibility for people who find themselves more comfortable staying home.
In a statement uBreakiFix Co-Founder and President Justin Wetherill said:
This isn't the only accommodation the repair company has made in the current pandemic. It also offered free repairs to first responders who owned Pixels and Samsung phones in the first half of the year, a move that has probably bought it some endearment. You can book a We Come To You appointment from uBreakiFix's online portal if you need one.
Pretty awesome! Now if only Samsung lowered the price of screen repairs, last I checked they were $240. Almost considered getting a Moto G instead lol.
Hey there, just a heads-up: the reason why they're so expensive is because from the S8 and above, all uBreakiFix Samsung Authorized screen repairs come not only with the screen itself along with the factory screen protector, but also the frame (borders, buttons and all) and a battery as well! That brings up the part cost considerably. It's Samsung's way of making sure that water resistance is maintained (the screens come attached to the frame) and that the battery has no issues in the future.

I disagree with the camera opinion, he also compared side by side with the Galaxy Fold 2 and the image of the XL is sharper and overall better quality. He also stated that sometimes the image is blury, that is because he didnt focused on the subject, the phone has 1.7 wide aperture, of course it will be blurry at the out of focus parts. Also you can use the long tap AE/AF lock to lock the focus and the exposure to make a consistent image in difficult situations. The exposure is working well for me, also the focus is consistent, just use the AE/AF lock when needed. And about the colors .. i think the Google Pixel Camera oversatures them, so it is just matter of taste.
