Is a smartphone insured in home contents insurance?

We can no longer do without our smartphones. Because you often use the smartphone at home, it often gets damaged. The standard home contents insurance does not cover damage to the device, but it is possible to include it in the insurance.

For example, a laptop is not easily damaged. You walk around with it sporadically in the house, but it is usually somewhere safe. A desktop almost always stays in the same place in the house. With the smartphone it works differently. You walk around with it a lot and when you go out, you take it with you. A single drop of the phone is enough to cause hundreds of euros worth of damage. How can you adapt your home insurance to this?

What cover does the standard home contents insurance offer?

Most household insurances are so-called extra comprehensive household insurances. The name looks like a broad coverage against different types of damage. In itself that is correct, but often an even broader coverage is desired. This household contents insurance pays out, for example, for damage caused by fire, burglary, storm and lightning. Dropping or losing the smartphone are not covered. However, theft of the smartphone from the house is insured, but there is a need for an even broader coverage, and that is possible.
