Not only are the two phones fast and beautiful, they are also equipped with the best camera systems there is. What’s more? Both the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the S9+ have the best displays on any phone. Period.
But what happens when you break these beauties? I will straight up tell you that the repair cost of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ display replacement isn’t going to be cheap. Thankfully though, since the S9 and the S9+ use the same panel that was used on the Galaxy S8 and the S8+, the pricing isn’t all that different.

Thankfully though, the price is the max retail price. If you look around, you will definitely find a place that will repair your Galaxy S9 for a lot less money. The Samsung Galaxy S9 being the smaller variant in the S9 series costs less to replace.

Things to keep in mind during Screen Replacement of a phone
- Don’t go and grab Chinese screen replacement or digitizer replacement. They will stop working after a few months.
- Always contact the manufacturer in case the phone breaks. Only the authorised service centre can bring the phone back to its earlier state.
- Make sure that the seals are properly closed so that the phone is still IP certified after the replacement process.
- Check if your phone still has insurance or is under accidental warranty period.
Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ both are excellent phones but as with any other phone, they are prone to damage in case of a drop. As such, we highly recommend users to put on a case on the phone and a full coverage screen protector to avoid such mishaps.
