Samsung launches Protection Plus Mobile Elite warranty program for US consumers
Owners of Samsung’s Galaxy S and Galaxy Note devices in the US now have the option to get benefits beyond what companies usually offer under a device’s warranty, thanks to Samsung’s new Protection Plus Mobile Elite program that the company has announced. Under this program, the warranty of the phone will be extended to two years, and Samsung will offer fixes/replacements for damage from accidental drops, electrical and mechanical failures, and replace a device within two business days. Samsung is limiting the number of times a user can claim these benefits to three, which shouldn’t be a problem considering you will probably switch to a new phone if you’ve dropped it or damaged it so many times.
At the moment, the Protection Plus Mobile Elite warranty is available only for the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3, and the Galaxy Note 4. It’s not very cheap – Galaxy S owners will need to shell out $99 while Galaxy Note users will have to pay $129 in order to grab those benefits, though hopefully the returns for those price will be worth it.
