Even though it makes some awesome phones, HTC knows it’s fighting an uphill battle against companies like Samsung and Apple in the mobile market. That’s why the company recently launched the HTC Advantage program to help win over American smartphone buyers, so if you buy the company’s flagship HTC One – or its max or mini variants – you’re automatically enrolled in HTC Advantage. The program offers up to 50 extra gigs of Google Drive space for free, giving you plenty of space to store all the photos and videos you take with your new device. HTC Advantage also guarantees you’ll get the latest Android updates for two full years after the device is launched. Finally, if you somehow manage to crack your screen within the first 6 months of buying your device, HTC offers a one-time screen replacement for free. If you’re the clumsy type – or want to guarantee have the latest version of Android – make sure to think of HTC the next time you need a new phone.
