As flagship smartphones continue to creep up in price, protecting them becomes even more important. If you’ve used a smartphone for an extended period of time, there’s a good chance it’s shown some signs of abuse. Protection plans are a good way to get some peace of mind and have your back covered if something should happen. OnePlus is now launching Protection Plans in 27 European countries.
OnePlus launched Protection Plans back in April and they are already available in the US. There are a number of different Protection Plans and different price points that you can buy. The most comprehensive plan, OnePlus Care, covers your device against damages by all accidental drop, crash, breakage, or liquid for 2 years. Other plans include an Extended Warranty Plan, Screen Protection Plan, and Accidental Damage Plan.
All of these plans will not be available to all countries, and they are only available for the OnePlus 8 series. “Phase 1” rolled out to the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Romania, Austria, France, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia, and Ireland on April 30th. If you live in one of those countries you can’t add a plan to a device you already own.
“Phase 2” of the rollout will include the Czech Republic, Malta, Hungary, Belgium, Cyprus, Lithuania, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Latvia, Slovakia, and Luxembourg. If your country is in Phase 2, you can add a Protection Plan to your existing purchase until May 25th. Be sure to check out the plans that are available in your country.
