The Samsung Galaxy S9
The Samsung Galaxy S9 was released in 2018, with the advancement in technology in phones having come on leaps and bounds since then, the S9 remains a reliable and trusted option for some people. You can read the full specifications here.
But as time progresses, technology has to remain updated and well maintained in order to remain working and useful. For a phone that was released in 2018, there is a higher likelihood that it may have some issues that need to be repaired.
Are older phones still popular?
Older phones are the preferred option for some people. Whether it be that an older model is all they can afford at the time, or they may not want to deal with the additional features granted by more recent models of phones.
Other individuals even prefer not to own a smartphone altogether, and have opted for “burner phones”. These phones have no touchscreen, and interaction is facilitated through a keypad.
Why would a battery need replacing?
In the case of a Samsung Galaxy S9, this is a 5-year-old phone, so the likelihood of a faulty battery is higher as time goes by, especially if the phone is overused or charged incorrectly. That being said, here are the factors that could contribute to a battery needing replacement, regardless of the model of phone you have.
What causes a battery to need a replacement?
- Tampering with the battery itself
- Significant physical damage that has also damaged the battery
- Water damage
- General faults
- Dust and dirt amongst the battery’s connections
- A leaking battery
How much do Samsung charge to repair a Galaxy S9?
Through Samsung, a battery replacement can cost £109. Although these prices seem gigantic for an old phone, part of the premium pricing is due to Samsung offering a doorstep repair, in which they come directly to you.
Can you replace the battery in a Samsung Galaxy S9?
To a degree, yes. Phone software can impact battery life, this is more relevant to older phones, as the hardware may not be enough to support a new UI update for example. Or maybe the phone can, but has to overcompensate in order to run smoothly. Although this won’t necessarily destroy your battery, it may make your battery run out faster than before.
Additionally, running multiple background apps, having your screen brightness consistently high, and using your phone relentlessly will contribute to a faster decline in battery life.
Can you replace the battery in a Samsung Galaxy S9?
Yes, the battery in a Samsung Galaxy S9 can be replaced, however, this is not a task that should be performed by anybody who is not an expert in smartphone battery replacement.
Firstly, most, if not all, modern smartphones do not have a detachable back case, meaning that the battery can not be accessed without the removal of certain screws and delicate tinkering, or by using other methods. This is the first reason why not everyone can replace the battery of their phone.
Secondly, depending on why you need to replace your phone battery, you could be at risk of injury, or unintentionally instigating a fire hazard. Some faulty batteries may be broken or leaking, these chemicals are harmful to people, and can contribute to the battery burning, potentially causing a fire.
Lastly, in the case of the Samsung Galaxy S9 specifically, due to the phone being 5 years old, a replacement battery may be more difficult to obtain as the phone itself has ceased production. However, it is still possible to obtain, but sometimes may cost more than you’d expect. This is why the better option is to visit a phone repair specialist like imFixed.

Is it better to get a refurbished phone?
If you want an upgrade, yes. Refurbished phones are the most economical way of getting a high-quality phone for a relatively low price and still having excellent functionality.
But it’s important to distinguish between old, used, second-hand and refurbished phones before you make a purchase. So what’s the difference?
Most second-hand phones have been repaired aesthetically but not necessarily functionally, so even though there may not be scratches on the back or cracks on the screen, you don’t know that the phone is working well.
On the contrary, refurbished phones have been repaired by professionals, meaning the inner workings of the phone have been repaired as well as the outside. That makes refurbished phones slightly more expensive than used or second-hand phones, but it’s worth it to know that the phone is working well and won’t need any urgent repairs, or professional phone unlocking
