We currently live in a day and age where mobile phones have become our best friends. From the moment we wake up, we completely rely on our smartphones to navigate through the day. Whether we have to check our work email, interact with a colleague, or even execute as mundane a task as making plans for lunch, we depend on our mobile devices. As such, we cannot even imagine what we would do, if we do not have access to our phones even for a single day. However, any damage to -- or malfunctioning of -- our mobile phones can result in us having to do without our handy devices for an extended period of time. Smartphone brands like Samsung, Nokia and Xiaomi among others offer warranties, to ensure that any damage to our phones resulting from manufacturing defects are taken care of quickly, and customers can avail their services within the warranty period. To perform a mobile warranty check, you have to enter your smartphone’s serial number (IMEI number) into the brand’s warranty tracker on their official website, and check the mobile’s warranty period.
It is also recommended that you purchase extended warranty for mobiles, which ensures that your mobile phone is protected from any sudden and unforeseen damages. Brands like Samsung and Nokia provide Samsung mobile extended warranty and Nokia extended warranty plans, while you can also opt for third-party services that offer extended warranties.
