HTC's One M9 to Include Free 'Uh Oh' Insurance
Mar 18, 2015, 7:00 AM by Eric M. Zeman
HTC today announced Uh Oh Protection for the One M9, a program that will provide owners with a free replacement device if the M9 is damaged. Uh Oh Protection comes with the M9 automatically; customers won't need to sign up for it, but it is limited to the U.S. Under the terms of the program, HTC will provide a free replacement phone if the M9 suffers a broken screen, water damage, or if the customer chooses to change wireless network operators. The one-time replacement is available during the first 12 months of ownership. M9 owners who do not take advantage of Uh Oh Protection at the end of 12 months will receive a $100 credit towards the purchase of a future HTC One handset. Uh Oh Protection is an offshoot of the HTC Advantage program, in which HTC offered free screen replacements for the One M8, One mini, and One max. The HTC One M9 is expected to go on sale in the U.S. soon.

HTC's 2015 flagship is an evolutionary update to last year's model. While the new hardware is refined with better manufacturing and high-quality materials, not all the changes are for the better.
HTC’s flagship One phones are iconic and well-regarded. The already refined design has been refined further for 2015, representing a relatively modest update.
