This sounds great, however, the technology could be to blame for the replacement and repair of the panel in case you break it is more expensive than it already was.

When we asked Samsung about the price of changing a broken screen for the Galaxy S10 or S10 Plus, the company gave no answer. On the website for the United States we can see the price of the change in all available models, but not in the most recent ones.

Therefore, to obtain the official information that Samsung gives customers, call 1-800-Samsung, the company's technical assistance line. We ask the price of the screen repair, giving the IMEI of the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus models available for testing in writing.

The person on the other side of the line confirmed the value to change a broken screen of a Galaxy S10 or S10 Plus: US $ 269.64 for the smaller model and US $ 291.19 for the larger one, including taxes.

Why is it more expensive to repair the screen of the Galaxy S10?

There are several reasons that may force Samsung to raise the price of repairing a broken screen of the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus. On the one hand, we have that the S9 and S9 Plus had smaller screens (5.8 and 6.2 inches), although the S8 and S8 Plus were also lower, and the price on both models was the same.

If it is not the type and size of the screen, there are other reasons that could be pushing Samsung not only to increase the price of changing the screen of its new phones, but also the general price of them that this year is more expensive than the past, of US $ 899 and US $ 999, respectively for the S10 and the S10 Plus.
