What should be the warranty period for a good smartphone endoscope?

We highly recommend you to buy smartphone endoscopefrom brands that offer prolonged warranty. If something goes wrong and your smartphone endoscope breaks down, you will be able to repair it without spending a single penny. Most companies offer a two-year warranty for their products.

What warranty period is considered optimal for smartphone endoscope?

We think that a two-year warranty is more than enough for a decent smartphone endoscope. There are many premium options with a lifetime warranty, but we do not think that it is necessary. We recommend you to simply replace smartphone endoscope with a new one after some time.
