A great option for those who might not live near a third-party authorized repair location.

    Or a hour at the Apple Store. For the same price you aren’t getting the same service but if your time is cheap, go for it

      Kingslayer, 29 Sep 2018This is where Apple wins. They have a physical store to go ... moreI'm in a different boat. I personally like Android more, but I've been using the iPhone 6 Plus for awhile with few problems. In all honesty though, I'm slightly in the ecosystem now, so i don't know whether to wait for the 2019 Android phones or just get the iPhone XS Max

        This is where Apple wins. They have a physical store to go to. I have two Apple Stores within a 10-mile radius from me. One in Cerritos or Brea, CA. I can easily walk in and have them replace my battery or whatever.

        Still, I generally can't stand iOS. It might feel great in the beginning with the honeymoon phase getting a newer iPhone but it always feels worse and annoying as time goes on. I could never truly love Apple or iOS. Their flaws will always get to me at the end.

        At least for ones who can tolerate their draconian ways, you got those physical locations to go to. That and the software updates up to five years. I'll always be an Android Guy for life though.

          So copy Apple with exorbit repair prices, why bother even make ones if nobody will use them?

              Due to demand?

                o Pay off YouTubers to spread a lie that the new phone is spectacularly durable to convince people into using it without bumpers.
                o Take over the highly profitable repairs business.
                o ....
                o PROFITS BISHES!

                  So, finally they do something with the margin they have been enjoying selling their expensive Pixel phones. Good, I guess. Pixel users deserve better considering the premium they're paying.

                    This should have been done before they started to make Pixel devices, not after. Also remaining US-only doesn't make any sense either, those stores should open on other countries as well.
