Motorola now offers one time screen replacement, like HTC

If you own a Motorola device that’s still in warranty, and you break your screen, you’re in luck. As one Reddit user recently discovered, Motorola is offering its customers one time screen replacements to cover users who happened to have cracked their displays.

Apparently, this is good for all customers who are still under warranty, and simply requires filling out the standard warranty form. If you ordered your phone through Moto Maker, you’ll also get a free code to create another device, along with a shipping label to send your old device back once your new one arrives.

This is similar but better than HTC’s relatively new Advantage program, which also allows a one-time free screen replacement. HTC, however, requires you to be within your first six months of phone ownership, and you have to send your phone back to HTC for repair. This means you’ll be without a phone for several days.

Motorola, on the other hand, will replace your phone with a new one and let you keep using your broken phone until the new one arrives. Nice.

Does this make you lean more heavily toward Motorola for your next phone purchase? Let us know below!
