No matter which model of Samsung phone, is a screen replacement so costly? Believe it or not, labor cost isn’t what’s inflating the price, it’s the replacement element.
When we talk about electronics, ingenious devices with LCD screens, China is the world’s mass creator and main manufacturer. throughout-the-world tech companies count on China for their affordable manufacture of electronics. Apple, for example, an American company, relies on China to manufacture their products. Designs are dispatched to China and finished products are returned for selling. Original products and their components are considered “ OEM ” or Original Equipment Manufactured.
Now to the fix-up. You broke your Samsung device and unfortunately your phone isn’t covered by insurance. Your only option is to go to a third-party repair service.
Replacement parts for phones including screens, home buttons, volume switches, and charging ports can be reciprocated with “ replica ” parts — parts designed to fit and perform just as OEM. The repairs made with replica parts are cheap; OEM parts come with a higher price label.
This is where part sourcing becomes political. Samsung is a South Korean company and doesn’t allow for replica parts to be made in China and exported to the US market. Just as China controls the Liquid-crystal display market, so does Samsung’s complete control over its consumer product.
Your third-party repair service has no cheaper option, no replica part, to repair your phone with. All that’s available is costly OEM. Samsung must be mended with high-cost Samsung products.
