Holiday Damage Report 2016

The most rugged smartphone. The most reliable cell phone. Before you tie your technology gift up with a bow this season, make sure a protection plan is part of the package.

More than half of all Americans are planning to give electronic gifts this holiday season — and spend an average of $585 on them.

You might think you know what your loved one is searching for — the most indestructible phone, the best cell phone brand, the most durable Android phone or the most durable iPhone — but here’s what they’re not: a damaged device. How much does a smartphone cost? More when they’re one of 57 percent of Americans who do accidental damage and spend an average of $334 getting it fixed. (Sometimes, the most durable phone case just won’t cut it.) So give the gift of an instant upgrade via SquareTrade.
