HTC tries to woo U.S. customers with free screen damage cover in HTC Advantage program



For those who may be waiting to choose between the Samsung S5 and the new HTC flagship handset code-named the M8, HTC has a little sweetener for you: a free, one-time replacement of the screen if you break it within the first six months of ownership. The company is also promising to offer Android updates for two years.

Now when customers buy any HTC One they can rest assured their device will be future proofed, with major Android updates for 2 years from launch. And it’s nearly accident proof too, because we will replace a broken screen for free once within the first 6 months you own it—let’s face it accidents do happen and we want to keep your device in great condition … 

Completing the HTC Advantage deal is 50GB of free Google Drive storage with the M8, with either 25GB or 50GB with other handsets.

HTC says that the program is currently available to original purchasers of the HTC One, One max or One mini who bought their handset after today. It seems likely it will be made available to those buying the One’s successor, the M8.

The M8 – whose launch name is not yet known (the HTC One was code-named the M7) – is expected to be unveiled on 25th March.
