Samsung Protection Plus could be the Korean firm's extended warranty plan
With AppleCare+, Apple iPad owners also get an extended two year warranty, and are allowed two repairs to cover accidental damage at a price of $49 for a service fee on each repair. AppleCare+ costs $99 for both Apple iPhone and Apple iPad owners.
As far as Samsung is concerned, all we have is a trademarked name. Perhaps now that the name has been revealed, we will hear some information about what Samsung has in mind. In the U.S., its products come with a one-year warranty while European law requires that they have two-years of coverage out of the box in that continent.

I thought they already had this kind of plan, fanboys were constantly saying "Samsung listens to their customers"

Samsung already have this here in Africa for the entire S4 range and Note 3, it's known as ADH (Accidental Damage Handling). Your S4 or Note 3 gets two free repairs if the screen is cracked or the phone is dropped in water, and then for an extra R59 ($5.90) per month you get ADH+ which is Samsung's phone insurance, you get a free replacement of your phone if lost or stolen.
So yes to the troll, Samsung do listen to their customers.

Wish they would support rooted device. That will be the first for all Android OEM including Google.
