Any smartphone user knows that it’s all too common to have a device slip out of your hands and hit the floor as you go about your day. Sometimes these drops leave your device none the worse for wear, and other times your expensive smartphone ends up with a broken screen or worse. Samsung has announced a new protection plan for some of its smartphones that protects from life on the road.
The new Samsung protection plan is called Protection Plus Mobile Elite and it is available for Samsung Galaxy S4 and S5 smartphones as well as the Galaxy Note 3 and Note 4 phablets. The plan for both devices offers the same fast resolution with 24/7/364 support. I guess the call center gets one day per year off. The warranty extends protection two years from the date of purchase.
Covered damage under the plan includes repairs for cracked screens or liquid damage. Buyers can get three claims during the entire support period. Pricing is different depending on the device with the Galaxy S4 and S5 plan selling for $99 and the Note 3 and Note 4 plan selling for $129.
