The new Device Protection initiative is available to Pixel smartphones for a small $99 flat fee, which you can tack onto your purchase at the checkout with your Pixel or Pixel XL smartphone. Device Protection covers your Pixel for accidental damage from a drop or spill, and it also covers you for general malfunctions over two years.

 

A one-year warranty covers pixel for defects, so the second year on top of the accidental damage cover are a big win for Pixel owners at $99. If you drop or break your Pixel, Google has your back with next-day shipping or your replacement smartphone, but you have to pay a fee for that. The smaller Pixel will cost $79, while the 5.5-inch Pixel XL costs $99. Still, you're getting a brand new phone with next-day delivery for a small cost. Not too bad at all, and you don't even have to leave the house.
