Google have officially announced the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL and the company opened the pre-order on the very same day right after the launch event. Fairly speaking on behalf of the weight of hype online, it appears like these second iterations of pure Android smartphones designed by Google itself will be exceptionally sought-after this fall alongside the rivals like the Apple’s iPhone X and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 as well as the LG V30+.
Like the aforementioned flagship smartphones from competing manufacturers, the Google Pixel 2 and its larger counterpart Pixel 2 XL have an indeed solid price point. As a matter of fact, for the highest storage capacity of the Pixel 2 XL (128GB) will set you back $949. For those future owners of the second generation Pixels that tend to have an unfortunate fate on keeping their precious smartphones safe, the Google Pixel 2 smartphone insurance is priced at only $129. Is the extra money on top of the retail price of the handset you’ll shell out worth it?
For an additional $129, your Google Pixel 2 is covered with 24-months of accidental damage, and you’ll also get a 24/7 priority customer service, walk-in repair services, and unlimited expert sessions.
[agg-ad id=”5121″ align=”center”][agg-ad id=”5122″ align=”center”]First this first, the accidental damage coverage makes a lot of sense to protect your Pixel 2 XL for an extra $129. There is a $99 deductible but should you want to avail the replacement offering, then you’ll need to shell out $230 for a brand new Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL instead of paying the minimum $649 you would have to dish out on a new 64GB Pixel 2 base model without an insurance.
As for the walk-in repair services, it would definitely be quite convenient in case of an accidental damage. However, some would really want to know where they can head over for the walk-in repair program.
The unlimited sessions with the experts included with the Pixel 2 insurance being offered. For some smartphone adopters who likes to search for a troubleshooting relating to a certain issues and tinker with their phone on their very own; this might would definitely be helpful. For one who would rather have a technical support from an expert: this is would be a great bargain.
So, is getting an insurance for your Google Pixel 2 for an additional cost worth it? Well, that comes down to your own personal decision and how you value your hard-earned money. As for my personal belief, I would still purchase the Google Pixel 2 insurance for accidental damage coverage even without the other services.
