Samsung starts offering its own insurance plans for Galaxy S6 devices. In other news, Android for Work and new Tinder updates hit the app stores.
The all-new Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are a beauty, but they won’t stay so gorgeous forever. Chances are many of you will be putting these phones through the paces and at some point you will drop your smartphone. What then? Well, experience has shown me it’s best to be prepared with insurance.
Sometimes carriers don’t offer the best plans, so Samsung is coming up with its very own insurance plans for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. These are priced at $99 and $129, respectively. They do cover accidental damage (up to 3 times), as well as all warranty coverage, for two years.
The trick is that there is a deductible to be paid after each accidental replacement. The fee amounts to $75 for Galaxy S6 owners, while Edgy customers have to shell out $95. Just hit Samsung’s website to learn more and make your purchase!
Opinion: Really, guys. Get insurance on your new phone. These are expensive gadgets, and very easy to break. If you won’t be getting insurance, though, we do advice that you take a look at our post on the best Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge cases.
No one likes carrying a bunch of devices, right? But it’s something many of us have to do in order to keep work and personal usage separated. Google aims to solve this issue with a new app you can now get on the Google Play Store.
Android for Work is pretty interesting int hat it allows you to run two versions of a single app. For example, you could have Work Chrome set up with all your labor-related bookmarks. Or you could have your Work Contacts, aside from running your regular Contacts app. And yes, you can password protect them.
Opinion: Gogole is teaming up with companies like BlackBerry, Samsung and others, in order to strengthen this project. I am glad to see more enterprise-related apps coming to Android, a platform that was previously known for its lack of security. We have come so far!
Facebook images may not be enough, so Tinder has decided to start supporting Instagram images in its dating app. Tinder will now show potential dates the last 34 Instagram photos, making the experience much more personal. In addition, Tinder has added all your Facebook interests to your profile.
Opinion: I don’t know about all this, guys. I mean, the beauty of Tinder is the mystery that used to surround people using it. I don’t want Tinder users known all my personal information from the get-go!
