    My friend's OnePlus 6 is having motherboard issue her phone doesn't show any cellular network and it keeps on restarting, she went to the OnePlus service center and they are saying it's out of warranty, shouldn't motherboard be replaced regardless of warranty (PS:- she takes very good care of her phone), it automatically restarted while taking pictures

    Why just the motherboard ? Why not the battery and display too ?

    I don't know about that, but motherboard should be replaced because it costs almost 17k that's almost as a new phone.

    Sure. Try explaining that to the service center.

    Unfortunately if your phone is already out of warranty , there's nothing for you to extend in the first place.

    I wonder what would happen if I took my old Samsung S6 edge into the store and told them that the motherboard should be replaced free of charge despite it being out of warranty?

    They would laugh me out of the shop!

    The point being, a warranty is pointless if they then start making certain parts of the device exempt of time limits for warranty 🤷🏼‍♂️

    I had an sS6 edge too,it was a great phone, my love for the edge display phones started with that one,but surely I get your point that OnePlus 6 is an outdated phone, but it's motherboard costs like crazy on the site,that was the point I was trying to make that it is a bit on the higher side the motherboard

    As are all motherboards.

    Just down to bad luck if it dies out of warranty.

    And the sad part is that I used to make fun of my friend (the OnePlus 6 owner) that she takes too much care of her phone ,that her phone didn't have any scratches even after using it after this much time.

    and labour charges and taxes.
    And hope they don't mess up anything else while replacing it.

    That may be an issue with just the SIM slot but it is soldered on the motherboard.

    Try a local shop and see if they can access the SIM slot and clean it.

    If the rest of the phone is working ,
    Exchange it during some online sale for whatever price is on offer.

    I fear you are correct on both counts. I guess I won't qualify for the extra long extended warranty then..... Win some and lose some 🤷🏼‍♂️
