When you are looking to purchase a new phone, you may be dreading the after-product sales that the phone rep will throw at you. One of the priciest add-ons for smartphones is the damage and warranty protection plans. However, what should you look for when it comes to a warranty? Should you even get a warranty? Zagg Phone Repair wants you to make the right choice. Here are a few things you need to know when it comes to phone warranties.
What Is a Warranty?
There are a few types of warranties that are linked with your smartphone. A manufacturer’s warranty that comes with your smartphone determines when and for how long a manufacturer is liable for your phone. The manufacturer’s warranty typically only covers manufacturing defects, not accidental damage. To cover accidental damage, many people purchase an extended warranty through the establishment they bought it from.
What Features Should I Look for in a Warranty?
When you are about to purchase a smartphone, you need to look at the different features that a warranty has to determine if the price is worth the benefits. You should consider the following costs when considering an expended warranty:
- Price of the program
- Additional repair fees
- Terms of protection
- Does it cover the screen?
- Will it cover liquid damage?
Sometimes coverage will include a complete phone replacement under certain conditions. However, if you have to pay exorbitant repair fees on top of the initial cost of the program, it may be cheaper to pay for professional phone repair if your phone ever breaks.
If you are unsure on what exactly the warranty covers, ask the representative. You will be given a copy of information relating on exactly what the warranty covers and does not cover. Read it thoroughly and do some research on your own before purchasing any warranty program.
