Google’s brand new Pixel and Pixel XL duo has just started shipping out to customers, while also becoming available for purchase in brick and mortar locations as well. As hours pass, more and more units are being sold, so Google has set up a new partnership created to provide protection for these precious new devices in the event they come to harm.
It’s the sensible thing to do, given that unwanted accidents are always bound to happen. The search giant has teamed up with uBreakiFix to offer same day Pixel repairs, reports 9to5google. While you might not have heard about uBreakiFix until now, let us tell you the company is currently active in 240 locations spread out over 187 cities in the US and Canada.
Users of Pixels with a broken display are promised their repaired devices will be available for pickup on the very same day. The price for getting your Pixel screen replaced is $129.99 while for the Pixel XL you’ll need to take $149 out of your pocket.
If you don’t have a uBreakiFix store in your area, the neat thing is you can opt to send them your Pixel via mail-in service.
The Pixels are the first two smartphones manufactured exclusively by Google, so naturally it’s a matter of question right now, whether the phones will be able to endure the challenges imposed by frequent usage. While the fees asked by uBreakiFix aren’t exactly affordable, it still good to know the option of getting your Pixel’s display replaced on the same day, is available.
