How can you file an electronic device or smartphone complaint to Samsung?

From the Galaxy S series smartphones to the Galaxy tablets and wearables like the Galaxy Watch, Samsung sells various electronic devices (including TVs, Laptops, Home Appliances, Accessories, etc.).

If you’re facing a malfunction or technical problem with your Samsung device or have one, this guide will provide you with the knowledge to file a complaint and get your problems resolved.

Samsung Support

Two primary methods for lodging a complaint with Samsung.

1. Online Service Request:

This is a convenient option for detailed complaints with supporting documentation.

  • Visit the Samsung Support website: Product Help & Support ((https://www.samsung.com)
  • Select your country or region.
  • Click on “Support” and then “Contact Us” from Menu.
  • Choose “Online Service Request.”
  • Select your product category (e.g., Mobile Phones).
  • Follow the on-screen prompts to provide details about your device, the issue you’re experiencing, and your contact information.
  • You can upload relevant documents or photos to support your complaint.
  • Submit your request.

Alternatively, you can visit the “Samsung Digital Service Center” to get help from customer care executives by sending an email, live chatting, or messaging on WhatsApp (as per the availability in your country).

2. Contact Samsung Customer Care:

You can speak directly with a representative by calling customer support, sending an email, or chatting on WhatsApp with executives.

  • Locate the Samsung customer care phone number for your region. You can find this information on the Samsung contact page (https://www.samsung.com/in/support/contact/), your device’s user manual, or a retail receipt.

  • Call the customer care number and explain the issue with your device to the representative.

  • Be prepared to provide details about your device model, the date of purchase, and a clear description of the problem.

  • The representative will guide you through the complaint process and may offer troubleshooting steps or initiate a repair request.

If your problems are not resolved, you may also write to Samsung’s Head of Customer Service and Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

:tipping_hand_man:t5: Tips:

  • Before filing your complaint, try restarting your device and checking for software updates. These basic troubleshooting steps might resolve the issue.
  • Have your device model number and proof of purchase readily available.
  • Be clear and concise when describing the problem you’re experiencing.
  • Note down the reference number provided by Samsung for future reference.

Suggestion:

Before approaching Samsung, always follow these pre-conditions for faster resolution:

  • Warranty Status: Understanding your warranty status is important. If your device is under warranty or protection plan (insurance), Samsung will likely repair or replace it free of charge. However, out-of-warranty repairs may incur costs.

  • Consumer Protection Laws: Depending on your region, consumer protection laws may offer additional rights in the case of malfunctioning devices. Familiarize yourself with such laws for additional leverage during the complaint process.

  • Third-Party Retailers: If you purchased your device from a third-party retailer, you may need to contact them directly to initiate the complaint process, as their return or warranty policies might apply.

Consumer Protection Authority

In case of unresolved complaints, violation of consumer rights, or lack of quality of service or product, you may file a consumer complaint against Samsung.

You can approach the consumer protection authorities of your country or the offices established nearby you.
