At March of the Droids 2015 Honor, the new brand from Huwawei, launched a new warranty service for the UK called Honor VIP. Applicable to their new handsets, the Honor 6 and 6+, Honor will now try to replace any broken device on the same day.
As we all know not having your phone in this day and age for even 48 hours feels like a life sentence. This kind of warranty replacement allows users a little freedom from expensive carrier insurance and covers phones bought online as well as through Three, the UK carrier that Honor are partnered with. By bringing this kind of premium service to the UK and with strong mid-range devices like the 4x as well as high-end offerings, the 6 and 6+, Honor are starting to make a name for themselves.
Though announced at March of the Droids on March 21st, the full release is not until April however Honor told us “The service itself is a same day courier replacement service. Providing a warranty replacement at the customer’s door. This is in addition to standard repair service we have available already which takes around 7 working days.”
It’s important to remember that this a warranty replacement service, so if you do break your phone through being silly you will be expected to pay for the repair or they will return the broken phone and take the new one back.
