    The Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 are impressive foldable smartphones. They are more durable than their predecessors, thanks to stronger bodies, tighter hinges, and an IPX8 rating for water resistance. Samsung has also mentioned that its new phones are tested to withstand up to 200,000 folds, but what if their screens break accidentally? How much would it cost to fix them?

    Samsung mentioned to The Verge that if the Galaxy Z Flip 3 or the Galaxy Z Fold 3's screen breaks in a way that is covered under warranty, you don't have to pay anything to get it fixed. Out of warranty, replacing the Galaxy Z Flip 3's inner display costs $369 and fixing the cover display costs $99. For the Galaxy Z Fold 3, getting the inner display fixed costs $479, and the cover display replacement costs $149.

    A simple calculation shows that foldable screen replacement on the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3's costs 36% and 26%, respectively. However, you can subscribe to the Samsung Care+ service plan that brings down the repair cost to $249. This plan costs $12.99 a month and includes up to three screen repairs. However, Samsung is bundling a 12-month Samsung Care+ subscription for free if you pre-order its new foldable phones.

    Since the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 are hard to repair, it wouldn't be a good idea to try and fix a broken screen by yourself. However, Samsung is doing everything it can to improve the adoption of foldable phones. It has reduced the prices of its latest foldable phones compared to earlier models and even slashed the screen repair cost compared to the Galaxy Z Flip ($499) and the Galaxy Z Fold 2 ($549).
