Folding phones have been trying to hit the mainstream for a couple of years now, and Samsung is now on its third iteration of the Galaxy Z Fold with the Z Fold 3.

One of the major issues early models of folding phones had was that the screen could be extremely finicky. From dirt to simply folding the phone too much, users reported a myriad of problems.

Which leads to the question – how much would it cost you to replace the screen if something happens to it? Well, with the new Samsung phones, we now have some confirmation on exactly what you should expect to pay if your screen breaks.

How much does it cost to replace the screen on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3?

Short answer: $479 for the folding screen

While replacing phone screens is something that many of us have had to do, folding screens are a newer thing and many people might not understand the costs associated with it.

According to The Verge, which spoke with a Samsung spokesperson, a full-screen replacement on the nearly $2,000 phone (without trade-in) will set you back a whopping $479. For the smaller outer screen, the repair cost is $149.

Now, it should be noted that the phone includes a base one-year warranty that covers screen replacements that fall under warranty.

You can also get Samsung Care+ for $12.99 a month that covers up to three screen repairs per year, but if it falls out of warranty replacement, that cost is $249.
