Samsung Guard S8 Protection Program Could Give More Life to Your Upcoming Galaxy S8
As the majority of our readers know, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will feature a dual-curved edge display, not to mention a screen-to-body ratio that will put the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge to shame. While that results in an aesthetics boost, it also results in making the phone extremely susceptible to drops. Though both phones are going to be reinforced with Gorilla Glass 5, there is only so much that a piece of glass is able to do against the unforgiving pavement or a sharp object. To counter this problem, it has been rumored that the Samsung Galaxy S8 protection program will be able to solve this conundrum so let us check it out what this service really is and does.
Samsung Guard S8 Protection Program Will Deliver Free-of-Charge Display Replacement and More Perks – Here Are All the Details
This is a great initiative that Samsung is taking, although we do not know if the company would have even resorted to this move had the Galaxy Note7 recall ever took place. Regardless, according to WinFuture, several details regarding the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have been reported and one detail that caught our eye was a rumored customer support program called ‘Samsung Guard S8’.
According to the details that we came across, it will work similarly to HTC’s UH OH program but expected to offer a lot more in return. For example, in addition to an extra year of warranty coupled with the free display replacement, the Samsung Galaxy S8 protection program is also been reported to provide ‘remote support’ to users as well as repair appointments as quick as two hours in advance. However, the part where the free display replacement procedure is going to take place; that is only going to be a one-time thing.
Samsung naturally cannot resort to replacing the display every time you end up shattering it on either the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus because it would not be an appropriate move from a business standpoint. Regardless, we’d like to hear your thoughts on this latest protection program, assuming it ends up being true, so let us know down in the comments.
