Samsung has launched a new, more environmentally friendly screen repair option in Canada.
Starting October 4th, 2022, the South Korean tech giant’s new ‘LCD Glass Panel Replacement Program‘ will offer a more sustainable, cost-effective option to repair broken screens by replacing damaged LCD glass instead of the complete LCD module.
A Samsung spokesperson told MobileSyrup that the LCD component consists of the LCD module, glass panel, and frame. The new repair solution will allow Samsung to repair the glass panel if it cracks but reuses the LCD module and frame. Samsung says in most cases, only the glass panel is cracked and the module and frame aren’t damaged.
Samsung says the new program will only be for select Galaxy S and Note series devices “for now,” with plans to make it available to more devices in the future. Supported devices and LCD glass replacement costs are as follows:
- Galaxy S22 Ultra – $309 ($140 savings compared to out-of-warranty screen repair)
- Galaxy S22+ – $356 ($121 savings)
- Galaxy S22 – $345 ($121 savings)
- Galaxy S21 Ultra – $492 ($170 savings)
- Galaxy S21+ – $358 ($127 savings)
- Galaxy S21 – $340 ($117 savings)
- Galaxy S20 Ultra – $431 ($141 savings)
- Galaxy S20+ – $449 ($189 savings)
- Galaxy S20 – $449 ($187 savings)
- Galaxy S10+ – $396 ($149 savings)
- Galaxy S10 – $399 ($154 savings)
- Galaxy S10e – $299 ($114 savings)
- Galaxy Note20 Ultra – $496 ($178 savings)
- Galaxy Note20 – $354 ($123 savings)
- Galaxy Note10+ – $489 ($125 savings)
- Galaxy Note10 – $415 ($116 savings)
You can view more details about Samsung screen repair costs here. That site also includes some caveats around qualification for LCD Glass Replacement repairs, such as that devices can have a damaged frame or other hardware failures. Samsung devices with swelling batteries also won’t qualify for LCD Glass Replacement repairs, which may be particularly troubling for some people with older models.
Samsung says focusing on replacing damaged LCD glass and not replacing the entire LCD module will “help minimize the environmental impact of completing repairs” by reducing carbon emissions through minimizing parts production.
Finally, Samsung says it offers repair pick-up service at customers’ homes or businesses at no extra cost. Alternatively, customers can get the service at Samsung Experience Stores or ‘Exclusive Service Centres.’

WhatsApp starts rolling out Message Yourself feature – GSMArena.com news – GSMArena.com
WhatsApp is now rolling out its Message Yourself feature for users on iOS and Android. The feature was initially part of a beta trial that is now being made available to everyone.
Message Yourself is a feature that lets you, in a sense, message yourself. It’s a chat that is only visible and accessible to you and you can post there as you would in any other chat. This can be used to write important notes to yourself, saving web links, or uploading documents and voice notes.
This feature has been available on other platforms, notably Telegram, which has had it since launch. WhatsApp only publicly started testing this feature back in October. Some users have managed to work around its absence in the past by creating a group and then removing other members to essentially create a private chat for yourself.
The feature was unavailable for testing at the time of writing but should be available over the coming weeks.

Flexispot EG1 electric standing desk is nearly 50% off for Cyber Monday 2022
Doctors have long touted the benefits of working at a standing desk compared to sitting all day. But most workers find that some work is more comfortable to do while sitting, while other work is more appropriate for standing. Sit/stand desks, like the Flexispot EG1, provide the best of both worlds, allowing you to electronically adjust the height of the desk at the touch of a button.
When I got my standing desk, I discovered another major benefit. I use it for product photography and because I can adjust the desk height, it makes it easy for me to shoot at just the right angle. It’s been a huge time-saver.
The desk I’m spotlighting today has a 24×40 in desk area. You can drop it down to as low as 28.6 inches from the ground and raise it up to 48.2 inches — or about shoulder height. The motorized lift system supports up to 132 pounds, which is more than enough for a keyboard, monitor, mouse, and even most tower PCs.
You do have to build the Flexispot EG1 yourself, but it goes together quickly and easily, and requires no special tools.
Amazon is currently offering 39% off, plus an additional $20 off if you click the coupon box.
