Uh-Oh! HTC's chart shows how its protection plan covers more than the competition

Uh-Oh! HTC's chart shows how its protection plan covers more than the competition
Back in March, HTC introduced its Uh-Oh protection plan which will replace your damaged HTC One (M8) or HTC One M9 during the first year of its warranty. The plan covers water damage, damage from drops and will even give you a new phone if you change carriers. HTC offers this plan for free and produced a chart that compares Uh-Oh with protection plans offered by the competition. The chart shows HTC's Uh-Oh compared with Samsung Protection Plus Mobile Elite, Apple Care Plus, LG G4 Screen Replacement Incentive and the DROID Turbo screen Assurance.

The HTC Uh-Oh plan covers just about anything that can happen to your HTC One (M8) or HTC One M9. And if you don't use the free replacement plan during that first year, you can take $100 off the price of your next HTC One handset.


Check out the comparison chart, which we've divided into two parts for you, by clicking on the slideshow below!

It's not about the loudsness, it's about the quality and stereo effect *Joker voice* But yeah, it would be perfect in the speaker department if they were louder.

Why do you have both a GS6 and an M9? I switch phones a lot too but this year doesn't seem to be a year of flip flopping between devices.

I meant m8 lol my bad didn't realize i said m9. actually i don't still have it because i gave it to my sister but i compared the two before i gave it to her and the gs6 speaker sounds better but with headphones the m8 sounds better.

I have both as well but loudness is not the same, the base that you get on the M9 cannot be matched by the S6

HTC phones are too expensive, I was lucky to get a used One m8 yesterday at $325, golden color with 32gb internal memory.

You guys do know that this is a sham warranty like the one Asus has for some laptops right? Basically they know full well that any picky person will return this device at least once whether for a dead pixel, rattling volume rocker, SIM card tray that is not flush, raised screen, or anything related to their many quality control issues, so they might as well flip this around and make it seem like a positive by saying everyone gets a free replacement, not just the customers that got a sketchily made device.

As much as I love my M8 and HTC as a brand, this whole warranty thing is a farce. When I bought my M8 shortly after its release last year, HTC touted a screen replacement program titled "Advantage". It launched in the US, but never launched in the UK (or if it did, it launched significantly later). I thought it was a good sell point at the time, before I found out it wasn't available to the UK! Will " Uh oh!" be the same?

In fact IT STILL hasn't launched, over a year later... htc.com/uk/go/advantage/ "Coming soon..." Soon!? My definition of 'soon' differs greatly from HTC's obviously!

Should have come out that warranty sooner. I wasn't able to take advantage of HTC's screen replacement program with my M8 because they said they'd also check to see if the device was exposed to water. If so then I'd have to pay for the screen & whatever else is wrong. Right then I decided I was done with HTC
