Google announces Nexus Protect program

Nexus Protect

Along with a new set of Nexus smartphones, Google has announced a long term coverage plan for its smartphones called Nexus Protect.

For the Nexus 5X, Nexus Protect will cover the phone for a duration of two years against both mechanical breakdown and accidental damage at a cost of $69 USD.

Protecting the Nexus 6P, on the other hand, will cost $89 USD. Like with the Nexus 5X, the phone will be protected by Google against mechanical breakdown and accidental damage for two years.

Should your phone break while it’s covered by Nexus Protect, Google says it’s possible to receive a replacement phone within one business day. Moreover, it’s possible to make a claim 24 hours a day.

We’ve reached out to Google to find out if the service will come to Canada.
