Whether you use it for work, private use, entertainment, or an all-round digital aid, your smartphone is a valuable asset and needs to be protected. You may feel that wrapping your new smartphone in a reliable protective case is protection enough, but no matter how careful you are, it still remains vulnerable. Taking out insurance on your new smartphone is the only way to get real protection and here are three reasons why:
LOSS AND DAMAGE
It doesn’t matter how careful anyone is when handling their smartphone. They are still vulnerable devices, despite recent innovations to make them tougher. Because they are so often carried around and are used in almost every setting, smartphones are vulnerable to damage and loss. Many people think they are so cautious that they will never damage or lose their phone. There have been a lot of surveys conducted on the subject, and different figures are referred to, but a good half of smartphone owners surveyed have reported their handset getting damaged or lost. A significant number reported damage by simply accidentally dropping their phone down a toilet. Repairs to handsets are expensive, and complete replacement can be even more so. Insurance can offset these costs, and in some instances provide a completely new replacement handset at no extra cost, providing the right type of policy has been chosen.
