What does the phone warranty cover?

Do you know everything about your Phone warranty?

We receive a warranty for each newly purchased phone, which regulates the scope of the producer's liability for the device. However, we always focus on new equipment and the warranty goes somewhere into oblivion. Maybe is it sometimes worth checking what is written there?

In the event of smartphone defects resulting from the fault of the user, the service is entitled to refuse to repair the phone under the warranty. In today's post, we discuss what the warranty covers and what does not.

What is covered?  Warranty

First of all, some factors influence the guarantee. For Example your country or phone manufacturer, but there are some problems which every warranty should cover:

  • Defective materials or parts.
  • Hardware malfunctions.
  • Manufacturing defects.

The length of the warranty depends entirely on the manufacturer.
As a rule, it is a year or two. In many cases, you'll have the option of extending your warranty for a longer period of time.

What is not covered?

The warranty attached to the newly purchased device describes the damage that is not covered by the warranty.
The most common reason for excluding the guarantor from liability include:

  • contact of the phone with liquid or moisture,
  • mechanical damage, for example, caused by a fall or impact,
  • making repairs by unauthorized person or entity.
