With these options though, what has happened to the warranties of various electronic devices? After recently suffering at the hands of HTC for a faulty phone, I'm wondering what other global companies offer true warranties for their products. What experiences have people had with other tech companies with a presence all over the globe? What suggestions do people have for companies and warranties in the age of Internet Shopping?
