The screen of a smartphone is likely the component that is damaged or scratched first. Given that it is the component of a smartphone that is used the most, the wear and tear is understandable.
However, the expense of replacing a current device’s display and having it fixed can occasionally equal the price of a cheap phone. Google, however, has a solution, notably for the mid-range Pixel 5a from 2021.
A one-year extended repair package that includes coverage for the device’s display-related concerns has been announced by Google. Notably, users of the Pixel 5a in the US and Japan can access this program.
Advertisement The Google Pixel 5a hasn’t even been on the market for a year and already has an extended warranty. This is due to a number of user complaints about display issues that result in a blank or black screen when the phone is on or could be covered.
The Google Pixel 5a has a 6.34-inch FHD display, speaking of which. The front-facing camera is hidden by a hole punch in the top-left corner of the device.
A FREE DISPLAY REPAIR WILL BE PROVIDED FOR UP TO ONE YEAR FOR ELIGIBLE PIXEL 5A DEVICES. You can bring your Pixel 5a to an Asurion or uBreakiFix facility if the screen is broken. Users in the US are the only ones who can use this. After speaking with Pixel Support in both countries, you can also mail your phone in for repair.

There is a form online that you must complete out if Google didn’t contact you about your problem. Please be aware that it requires your Google Pixel 5a’s IMEI number and evidence of repair.
Keep in mind that you can only use fill in this form if you have already paid for the repair of your equipment before June 30, 2022. This program is comparable to the one Google launched for Pixel 4 XL and battery troubles, and the Google Pixel 5a has certainly had its share of problems.
