The Google Pixel, the apex Android smartphone, is known for a lot of things but water resistance isn’t one of them. This is one of the biggest drawbacks of the otherwise amazing phone. Keeping this in mind, Google is now offering Hurricane Harvey victims using Google Pixel smartphones free repairs.
Hurricanes are among the most devastating forces of nature. Almost every year, America is hit with hurricanes. Some of them are mild while others are absolutely devastating and cities have to be evacuated to prepare for them. Hurricane Harvey has been one of the most devastating hurricanes of this decade.
This is a nice gesture from Google, considering that the Pixel is one of the most water-damage prone smartphones and water damage is the most common type of damage during a Hurricane. Hurricanes bring with them stormy weathers and heavy rain. The type of weather which can cause the most damage to the Google Pixel.
Google has tied up with the electronics repair chain uBreakiFix for this offer. uBreakiFix was also in the news last year when they were officially Google’s partners for Pixel repairs and were offering same-day repair services for the smartphones for basic problems.
