The partnership signed between Google and uBreakiFix for replacement of components: display, battery and charging port on the pixel in the US and Canada.
To all, unfortunately, it happened to see their smartphone crashing to the ground, perhaps after having challenged too little attention. The result, at best, is a fright. Instead it happens sometimes that the impact end to shatter the glass that covers the display, thus making the device unusable (or almost). It could also happen with the new Google Pixel.
The Mountain View group knows this well and, to make the process of repair less traumatic (usually takes the device shipment to the manufacturer and a long wait), has signed a partnership with the chain uBreakiFix that ensures the return of the smartphone in 24 hours . Unfortunately, the initiative only affects the United States and Canada, countries in which there are 250 points of brand support. Users who may need it can get the replacement screen Pixel to $ 129 (about 118 Euros at current exchange rates) and Pixel XL to $ 149 (137 euro). The battery change or port costs about $ 79 charge (73 euro). These are the words of the founder Justin Wetherill.
We are pleased to offer Pixel customers with the same quality experience that has defined our brand, with repair services and support. A broken device should not ruin people’s day.
Google Pixel and The Pixel XL smartphones and are in the market for less than a day, but already appeared on the Net the first reports about a problem.
uBreakiFix is a relatively young company, created in 2009 by Justin Wetherill and his partner David Reiff precisely to respond to an increasingly frequent at this time is to share screen replacement to those who unfortunately have witnessed the fall of their phone. Not wishing anyone to need it, the initiative confirms, however, for the umpteenth time, the bigg strategy on the signing of agreements and partnerships with the reality of third parties to offer products (the same pixels are made by HTC) services to its customers.
