OnePlus 2 owners in India can now purchase two extended service plans
posted by Alan F. / Oct 18, 2015, 10:18 AM
If you're a OnePlus 2 owner in India, you now have two options to choose from when it comes to selecting an extended warranty plan directly from OnePlus. The first is called B2X Service, while the other is B2X Protect. The former can be purchased anytime within the first 30 days after the purchase of a OnePlus 2, while the latter must be purchased within seven days after a OnePlus 2 is bought. The warranty that comes with the device will cover your phone for one year from the date of purchase.
B2X Service will cost you the equivalent of $15 USD and extends the original manufacturer's warranty for another year. Anything that is covered in the original warranty, is covered under B2X Service.
B2X Protect costs a little more at the equivalent of $20 USD. This option expands the one-year warranty that comes with your OnePlus 2 so that you are covered against damage caused by liquids, accidents, and physical activities. This plan runs for one year.
After purchasing your One Plus 2, you will be given the option to sign up for either plan, or both. Once you decide to subscribe for extended coverage, you will receive an email asking for certain information about your phone in order to have it covered by the plan(s) you purchase. And just in case you own the OnePlus One, the bad news is that these new extended warranty plans are not available for the manufacturer's first handset.
Thanks for the tip!

That's far from true. Apple, Sony, HTC and LG devices are horribly overpriced. Even a Sony midranger like M5 costs over 600$ and the flagships cost about 900$-1000$ easily. A 16 GB iPhone 6S costs 960$ and the maxxed iPhone( 128 GB 6S+) costs about 1450$. And it's well known that India is an extremely poor country. An average person can't afford that much. That, coupled with the closeness to china makes these chinese manufacturers exploit the market; and that's the reason they are succeeding.

At least Oneplus (and for that matter, Motorola) has an OFFICIAL presence. Over here, you'd be lucky to find even in the grayest of markets to buy a non-Chinese (not useless) Oneplus 2 or ANY of the new Moto X's! And don't picture that India is dirt poor, it has a fairly sizeable middle class that can afford all these smartphones. Otherwise, it would be the dumping site of everything, which is more than can be said of their neighbours...

India is definately not poor, but it's more of a culture where people have different perspective for spending. Price is a major factor when considering any purchase in India. It's because of relatively lower power capita income and lack of consumer protection like in USA.

I didn't want to offend anyone, but it is true. Average per-capita income in India is 10-100 times less than that of an average person in Europe or USA. So yes, it's an extremely poor country. Not everyone is poor of course. The rich are super rich and poor are extremely poor.

Well, India's per-capita income is indeed a tenth of the USA, but you also have to factor in the cost of living. Prices of essential commodities and services is anywhere between 2-10 times more in the states.

The cost of living is indeed lower, but those of imported goods, cars, houses, electronics etc are higher than or equal to the prices in west. So yes, you can get basic amenities for pretty cheap, but luxurious goods is not that much.

U just forget one fact.India has large population of rich people.Thats the reason why Apple,htc,sony and Lg released there phones here.U also forget the fact that middle class easily buy these phones on Installments too.Even middle class here earning well.We had largest youth population and thats also attracts big smartphones companies.Every country has rich population as well as poor population.Cost of living here is low for everyone which also helps.I dont want to debate on this but you must clear ur facts.India is a country which is rising towards super power state.Also the relation of India and US also improving and on a right track.Its not good to call any country poor.If I wants I can also give lecture about India's accomplishments on world level too.India has endless opportunaties and youth which is extremely efficient.Every country has problems including US.

"Average per-capita income in India is 10-100 times less than that of an average person in Europe or USA" Again an exaggeration. It is 1/9.36 times the GDP per capita of USA and 1/6.85 times that of UK. If you factor in the sheer amount of population of India, you would realize how big a market it is even for high end phones. I am not offended or anything, but just wanted to clear the misconception. So I repeat, You may call it "relatively poor" but not even close to "extremely poor". PS: The data here is taken from 2014, I am sure it must have improved even further if you take the present day data.

Lol. Sounds great on the outside. Pickup and drop off service sounds awesome too. Truth be told their service centers are in only a few big cities. Oneplus 2 service centers are also only in a few cities. My friend bought an Oneplus one. The earpiece used for calling stopped working after 3 months. No service centers in the city, call oneplus customer care and they tell you to go to the nearest service center, call service center so that he can send the phone with a copy of bill but the service center needs him to bring the phone in person. Bottom line, he has to use a bluetooth for calling now. Lol. Oneplus is like : "Buy at your own risk" Brand.
