Vivo Mobile India — warranty fraud by vivo mobile india
Sshekhar811 on Nov 8, 2019
Background - on 20 march 2019, i bought a vivo y95 mobile handset (Sn-a807sc506c00) from a retailer shop, m/s hello mobiles ([protected], [protected]@gmail.com) in port blair. After a period of about seven months, on 03 nov 2019, graphics of the phone display distorted and cluttered with multiple red lines and by 04 nov 2019, the display totally gave up. It is pertinent to mention that the phone was never dropped on hard surface or immersed into the water. It had no physical damage or traces of water, when produced in front of the service center staff. However, since purchased, formation of moisture inside camera lenses was often a problem, especially whenever it was exposed to the air-conditioned environment for prolong duration. As, the remaining functions were satisfactory, i didn’t approach service center for any assistance until the display malfunctioned.
Grievance on the incident - as the phone is under warranty period for one year from the date of purchase, i preferred to approach m/s yingjia communication pvt. Ltd., the only authorized vivo service center in port blair. However, instead of rendering support with positive response, the staff at service center resorted to weird allegations based on all sorts of assumptions/ speculations just to disagree for repairs under warranty. Assumptions were made to such an extent that even the laws of physics were amended to support their own argument with illogical statements that the water inside phone evaporated and converted into moisture. Whereas, it is a basic concept that moisture is formed as the air condenses. Undoubtedly, it is a case of material failure, wherein the body of the phone could not withstand low temperatures of domestic air-conditioner, when exposed for prolonged duration. This led to formation of moisture and subsequently white patches over a period of time due to ion effect of air impurities. Obviously, a user cannot go to space or shelter himself inside vacuum for making calls or using handset. External environment will have its effect and cannot be neglected.
Conclusion - it is submitted that the breakdown of mobile phone display is purely a case of material failure and i cannot be held responsible for this. As no traces of water was observed, when the phone was offered at the service center, it cannot be stated with certainty that the phone was damaged because of liquid contact. However, if the company has already set its policy not to entertain any warranty defects and to levy cost of spares and repairs on the users, the service centers are free to trap vivo users with hundreds of reasons only on the basis of assumptions, for declaring the warranty null and void. Such indifferent response from the vivo service center, blaming its user for no fault is extremely disappointing and a cause of concern. Accordingly, with full generosity, i make a humble request to vivo company to address my problem at the earliest and issue necessary directives for repair of my vivo handset under warranty.
