HTC Will Fix Your Busted Screen For Free in the First Six Months Starting today (2/18/2014), HTC customers in the US no longer need to worry about cracking their smartphone’s screen. No, the company’s devices aren’t suddenly invincible; they’ll still shatter if dropped on a sidewalk, just like always. Instead, HTC has announced it will now provide one free screen replacement at any point during the first six months of phone ownership. The offer covers the HTC One, One mini, and One max, but it’s only good for devices purchased beginning today (2/18/2014). Existing customers will need to stick with their carrier’s insurance plan or turn to third-party options like iFixit for repairs. Still, no other smartphone manufacturer offers worry-free protection like this in the US, so HTC is setting itself apart in a big way.
