Samsung Z Flip and Fold 4 Teardowns: Do Cheaper Repairs Mean More Repairable Phones?

Surprisingly, we’re on the fourth generation of Galaxy Foldables, unsurprisingly they are far from mainstream. This year, however, Samsung is steeply discounting repairs so our interest is piqued. If Samsung is confident enough to drop the screen repair price to $29—with insurance—could the Fold and Flip 4 really be as repairable as non-foldables?
Before we get started, iFixit has teamed up with Samsung to sell parts and tools, but our Teardowns happen independently and without their involvement.
