Samsung Care Plus vs Phone Insurance

Samsung Care Plus vs Phone Insurance

Samsung Care+, Samsung's proprietary service for insuring products, is available for Samsung devices, but how well does it stack up next to third party samsung phone insurance, like the policies we offer at SO-SURE? And what is Samsung Care+ anyway? This article explains the key differences between the policies so you can make an informed decision on how best to protect your Samsung device.

What is Samsung Care+?

Samsung Care+ is an extended version of Samsung’s standard warranty, protecting your Galaxy device against all accidental damage for up to two years. It includes four main features:

  • Fast, convenient repairs using genuine Samsung parts, from authorised technicians
  • Hassle-free battery replacements reduce downtime
  • If your device isn’t running smoothly, Samsung’s technicians will check and fix the issue
  • You can make up to four claims for repairs or replacements within two years.

What isn’t included with Samsung Care+

Bear in mind that Samsung Care+ does not cover:

  • Product loss
  • Deliberate damage
  • Cosmetic damage
  • Pickpocketing or theft of any kind
  • Lack of reasonable care
  • Damage resulting from normal wear and tear.

SO-SURE Samsung insurance

At SO-SURE, we believe your Samsung insurance policy should include real benefits and rewards. How about 24/7 online claims reporting, a rapid repair and replacement service, and money back when you don’t claim? You can get all this and more with SO-SURE.

Our comprehensive insurance keeps your Samsung device fully covered for loss, theft, and accidental damage as standard, both at home and abroad, providing peace of mind wherever your next adventure takes you. Second hand and refurbished handsets up to three years old are also included in our Samsung insurance policy, plus coverage for up to £100 worth of Samsung accessories.

Social insurance

Our social insurance allows you to connect your policy to friends and family members. And if no one claims for the duration of your policy year, we’ll give you up to 80% of your premium back. So how does this work exactly? Well, if you were to buy Samsung insurance with us and invite your best friend to buy a policy for his or her phone, too, you can then connect your policies. Once connected, you’ll each receive £10 in your Reward Pot, which is essentially our group no claims bonus. If neither of you claims the duration of your policy, we’ll reimburse you the value of your Reward Pot at the end of it.
