advanced version of the company’s original 24-month accidental damage from handling (ADH)

warranty. Under the Samsung Premium package, consumers will receive a substitute device in the

event of screen or liquid damage to their Galaxy S5, at no extra charge.

“With the original ADH warranty, our consumers got to take their Galaxy S4 for charge-free and no-
questions asked repairs for screen and liquid damage, not once but twice during the first two years

of the life of their device. For the Galaxy S5, we have upgraded the service. With the Samsung

Premium warranty, instead of two repair claims, users of the device will now get two instant phone

substitutions over the 24-month warranty period, at no extra charge. This value-add represents our

commitment to anticipating the needs of our consumers and providing them with superior service

towards making their lives worry-free,” Revmatas explained.

“He said I’m his sister and he knows how difficult it is for a woman to make it in the industry. And guess what? He gave the verse for free. Good people exist and Baddo is one,” she said.
