For Japan and Taiwan only
Important: Google doesn't provide repair or replacement for devices bought from third-party retailers in Japan or Taiwan. For more support, contact the seller or a repair centre.

Issues with device after replacements or repairs occur

If you received a replacement (pristine or refurbished) or an in-warranty repair by Google or an authorised repair partner for your device because of a claim, your replacement or repaired device is typically covered under your manufacturer’s warranty either for as long as the original warranty lasts or for 90 days, whichever is longer. This term varies among manufacturers, so consult the warranty for your product. You may also have additional legal rights depending on your jurisdiction.

Devices refurbished from retailers will come with a 90-day warranty only. They will not have the completion of the original warranty period.

Learn about extended protection plans

Pixel owners can buy Preferred Care for Pixel phones, Pixel Slate or Pixelbook from the Google Store.

Note: Preferred Care is currently only available in the US.

Start a claim

If you bought an extended protection plan for your device from Google and the device has a problem that you think may be covered by your extended protection plan, start a claim.

Return an incorrect device under warranty

When you make your warranty claim for a replacement or repair, make sure that the device that is the subject of the warranty claim is sent to us. If we receive any other device, you will not be entitled to receive a replacement or repair under the warranty.

Important: Google repair isn't available in Japan and Taiwan.

In the event that you send the incorrect device as part of a warranty claim, we'll contact you to let you know using the contact details provided in the warranty claim. You'll have the option for us to arrange return delivery of the device to you, at your cost, through our courier partner. You may be required to sign for receipt of this delivery, and Google will not be responsible if the device goes missing or is damaged in transit. If we aren't able to contact you, we'll destroy this device 60 days after our attempt to contact you.

Google reserves the right to destroy phones (or anything else) received if it considers that the customer is making a fraudulent claim under the warranty. Examples include:

  • Sending a device other than the one referenced in your warranty claim

  • Sending objects other than a phone
