The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge may come outfitted with Gorilla Glass 4 on the front and back, but that doesn’t mean the devices are indestructible. In fact, we’ve seen enough “drop tests” around YouTube to know that just one drop could potentially shatter the front or back if landed just right.
It’s definitely not “Uh Oh protection,” but if you’re willing to shell out a few extra dollars, you can protect your shiny new investment from accidental damages with Samsung’s Protection Plus Mobile Elite plans. The plan costs $99 for the regular S6, and $130 for the S6 Edge. It covers all accidental damage for 2 years (up to 3 claims) and for every time you bring them a broken S6, you’ll still have to pay a deductible: $75 for the regular S6, and $95 for the S6 Edge. Still, it’s better than paying an extra $700 should your phone wind up in the bottom of a pool somewhere.
Most of you worried about this kind of thing probably already have insurance through your carrier, but for those that bought the phone unlocked or off-contract, it’s a nice option. Keep in mind for your S6 to be eligible for Protection Plus Mobile Elite, you only have 30 days from the date of purchase to pick up the insurance. Also, the S6 has to be purchased from an “authorized” Samsung retailer or wireless carrier. For more details, check out Samsung’s page here .
