Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge accidental protection plans now available

by John_A

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge-36

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are here, and they seem to be doing very well so far, garnering the attention of both casual consumers and even techies that previously might not have considered picking up a Samsung handset. The reason for the Galaxy S6’s warm reception is a combination of slimmed down software and more elegant hardware. Of course, that more elegant, glass-wrapped design comes at a potential cost: it could possibly be easier to break than a typical plastic-clad Samsung device.

Worried about a broken back or display with your new Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge? While HTC offers Uh-Oh replacement protection for free with the One M9, Samsung fans have the option of paying for extra protection through a “Samsung Plus Mobile Elite” extended warranty. The warranty program gives you two years of protection against accidental damage, and will replace the phone up to three times over the course of the warranty. This includes protection against liquid damage, cracked displays, cracked backs, mechanical damage, and the list goes on.

Pricing for the Samsung extended warranty plans are set at $99 for the Galaxy S6 and $129 for the Edge. The only other catch is Galaxy S6 owners will also have to pay $75 plus tax each of the three times you utilize the accidental damage warranty, while Edge owners will pay $95 plus tax.

For more details, be sure to head to Samsung’s website. What do you think, is it worth getting an extended warranty, especially for those of us who prefer to buy our handsets off-contract and outright? Or are folks better off to just save their money?

For those that do decide to bypass a warrany program or carrier insurance, you might at least want to take a look at our list of best cases for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
