Some examples of physical damage are:
- A smashed screen
- External cosmetic damage
- Signs of impact marks on the corner or sides of the device - which may result from a drop
- A damaged charging port
- Defects caused by the use of non-authorised accessories with the device
- Internal damage which can only be assessed by the repair centre
