Google partners up with uBreakiFix again for walk-in repairs on Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL

You’ve just got your brand new Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL handset and whoops! The handset slips out of your hand, bounces down two flights of stairs and out the door, coming to rest unscathed on the curb. You scamper down to recover your phone to find that a street-sweeping vehicle has run it over, leaving the display utterly smashed! What do you do? Well, much like original Pixel and Pixel XL phones, Google has partnered up with uBreakiFix so you can simply pick up your Pixel 2 handset (gently does it) and take it to your local branch to get it fixed with OEM parts. 

Thanks to its exclusive agreement with Google, uBreakiFix will repair Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL handsets at any of its 335 repairs shops across North America. This means that Pixel owners can access same-day repair services that use OEM parts without needing an appointment to get their displays replaced or repaired. If you don’t have a branch near you, you can use the mail-in service to send your broken phone to the repair service. A plus point is if you’ve taken out Google’s preferred device protection plan out on your Pixel 2 handset, you can also get help when filing claims.

Naturally, taking your handset to uBreakiFix for repair isn’t free. Replacing the display on the Pixel 2 costs $129 and $219 for the Pixel 2 XL while replacing the battery on either device means paying out $79.
