A smashed smartphone is one of modern life’s most expensive nightmares. You know the drill, you buy a shiny new Android and Apple smartphone and within a few weeks it’s already taken a tumble and ended up with a horribly cracked screen.
To make matters worse, repairs can be pretty expensive with Apple and Samsung both charging over £250 to fix a broken display on their latest devices. In fact, an iPhone 11 Pro Max will set you back a whopping £326 if you want an official fix from Apple’s store.
Now a new incentive from Virgin Media aims to give customers some peace of mind with the firm promising a free screen repair on some of its premium contracts.
The offer includes devices such as the iPhone 11 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S20 plus there’s other phones such as Galaxy A51 and new Note 20 which will also be repaired for free.
The firm says that this offers entitles customers to one free screen repair on eligible handsets.
It’s valid for 12 months or until the point of a successful claim but can only be used if the handsets does not have any fault in addition to the damaged screen.
The good news is if Virgin can’t fix the device a comparable replacement will be offered for free.
News of this offer comes as some new devices from Samsung, Apple and Google could all launch this month.
Apple has its September keynote later tonight where four new iPhones could be unveiled to the world.
Samsung will then follow next week with a launch event where the Korean firm is rumoured to be unveiling its new Galaxy S20 Fan Edition which will bring good specs at a lower price.
The technology giant looks almost certain to unveil a new Pixel 5 which could bring 5G data speeds to these Android phones for the first time.
It’s a busy month ahead and Express.co.uk will bring you all the news from these major keynotes over the coming weeks.
