Does a faulty sim card reader mean phone is stone dead?

I have a 6 week old Samsung Galaxy S6 and it just "died"...stone dead, nothing would turn it on, and if plugged in no lights. Sent back to where I bought it and they told me...it's a faulty sim card reader and that repair is not covered under the 24 month warranty!!!

My question is: if it really is the SIM card reader, would the phone really be stone dead...unable to charge?

If the sim card reader was bad the phone would still work and even if it didn't why is the sim card reader not covered by the warranty , its part of the phone this is just someone trying to get out of fixing a faulty phone

That does not sounds like an actual diagnosis to me. I've never seen a phone that won't turn on due to a sim reader. The sim reader is completely independent from the phone's power supply. I would recommend you get a second opinion on your phone from a reputable shop.
