Samsung Galaxy S8 features

Billed as the best phone your money can buy (Tom’s Guide) when launched and unlike any other phone on the market (Techradar), the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone made a huge splash in 2017 and it’s a superior piece of equipment.

It has the looks, the hardware, the features, the generous display size and the superb camera (surpassed only by Galaxy S9) which turned this phone into a premium one. S8 leads in terms of performance, display and image quality and even the battery life.

Samsung Galaxy S8 is one the most insured Samsung smartphones at so-sure and its specs make an easy to understand argument for this.

Samsung Galaxy S8 is a fantastic handset, let's cover it!

Packed with great specs, all-screen front and solid hardware inside a sturdy, amazing design, Samsung Galaxy S8 made quite a splash when it came out, and rightly so. It is still a high-end mobile device that stands out from the crowd, kudos to you if you’ve picked this handset as your main phone.

Unfortunately, its popularity and technical specifications also makes this Samsung phone a popular target for theft. And along with the iPhone X, the Galaxy S8 is one of our most claimed-on models, making it one of the most likely to be stolen smartphones out there, our data shows.

This is why we’ve designed our Samsung phone insurance to be comprehensive enough to cover a variety of unwanted situations, with theft, loss and accidental damage being covered as a standard. Because Galaxy S8 is so widely used, you’re still covered if you buy it second-hand or refurbished (as long is it’s sold for the UK market).

How much is excess?

Our excess is as low as £50 for accidental damage and £70 for loss and theft when you validate your phone with our anti-fraud technology.

If you don’t validate your phone with pic-sure the excess is £150.

Can I insure a mobile phone I bought from eBay or another auction site?

Yes, you can take out insurance on a second hand phone. The phone bought needs to have originally been sold into the UK market prior your purchase (e.g. we don’t insure models sold in China, for example).

I bought a used phone/my friend gave me an older phone can I still insure it?

Yes, we are able to insure second-hand phones provided they are in full working condition, without any damage, and less than 3 years old.

Is there an age limit on the mobile phone I want to insure?

The phone you want to insure must be less than 3 years old from when your policy begins.

If I pay annually do I get a discount?

Our Reward Pot allow us to give you the best possible pricing, so sorry we do not provide annual discounts.

What is an IMEI number and how do I find out the IMEI of my mobile phone?

The IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identification) number of your mobile phone is a unique identification code that is specific to your mobile phone. If you change your mobile phone, it is important that you call us so we can update your policy with the correct details.

For iOS (Apple) users:

Unfortunately, as we need your serial number on iOS you can’t just dial a number (although dialing the same number as above will reveal your IMEI number).

As such you can find both numbers by going to Settings > General > About.

If you’re using our app (or if requested by support), you can take a screenshot by pressing the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time until you see the screen flash quickly.

For Android users:

The easiest way to find your phone’s IMEI number if you’re on an Android device is to simply dial *#06#

If you’re still having trouble, then you should be able to find it in Settings > About phone > Status > IMEI information.

Your serial number will be on the Status screen.

If requested by support, you can take a screenshot on most Android phones by holding the volume down and the power buttons for 1-2 seconds. The screen should flash and the photo can be found in your photos app.
