I ... moredude. i know you are sony fanatic fan. and i know sony makes good phone. but i will never buy sony device. because in my country, sony's after_sales_service is terrible. how terrible is it? it will take one/two months to repair a simple breakage. Samsung can repair the same breakage in less than a week.
in my country, sony outsources the service center to other incapable company. and that company makes a lot of troubles. i dont know why sony do this, maybe my country is not important , that's why sony treats my country like this.
The only thing we can do now is: "black list sony. stay away from its mobile products. sony doesn't respect our country, so we will never be nice to sony too."
i live in indonesia.
and im not trying to promote samsung here. i tell you the reality in my country. you are lucky if you live in other country.

Refurbished smart phones of apple, samsung,htc, motorola, microsoft already available but still people buying chinese smart phones in india

LOL, Joke of th... moreSo far I won't get a refurnished smartphone, especially from Samsung. 2years warranty or 1+1year at least, at least those users can use after 1year without any worry, this is my experience and suggestion. Those real samsung fans do you like 2years warranty or just 1year warranty? Samsung ghostwriter will agree 1year warranty is the best! Sammy go and get your perfect phone.

Anyways, I trust Samsung products the most. They last for years and years. Have had many and none have failed. My Galaxy S1 (2010) still works =).

Why I said Joke? Refurbished phone is ESSENTIALLY 2nd-hand phone WITH MAKE-UP here and there to make it look as good as the NEW ones. So, know what 2nd-hand phone means? Risk-rich gadget. The only GOOD parts that u might get at best are casing & battery, while ALL the components except those 2 STILL THE SAME, in order to KEEP THE COST as liitle as possible.
So, the key words here are: '2nd-hand' and 'cost effective', and when u combined those two words, and add another word 'warranty', what do u expect to happen? Yup, [very] LIMITED warranty, at BEST 6 months for both software & hardware, while MOSTLY 6 months for software & 3 months for hardware, OR 6 months for software ONLY.
The logic here is: REFURBISHED phones ARE 'cheap' phones intended to fend off Chinese OEM. When talking about Chinese OEM, most of them use 'decent' to 'good' components in making their phones, because of the price-sensitive market; while Samsung use mostly 'better', to 'best' components in quality (high-end phones only, as the cheap ones from Samsung is as TRASH as chinese ones) so their gadgets are both premium inside (parts) and outside (casing & finishing). The logic is, chinese phones components are mostly durable for a short time (mostly 1 year), while Samsung components are made to be more durable (2 to 3 years, in my experience), therefore Samsung 'think' that even if they refurbished their HIGH-END phones, it will only cost them LESS and making this 'move' seems plausible to fend off Chinese OEM.
What I doubt when hearing this news is, HOW CHEAP Samsung is going to sell their REFURBISHED High-end phones? As it is now, High-end Samsung phones are easily 2x - 2.5x the price of chinese phones (Asus, Xiaomi, OnePlus, Alcatel, Lenovo, Meizu), and Samsung is known as the same manufacturers that use Nokia & Apple strategy; build gadgets as cheap as possible with good quality, give some 'gimmicks' to justify their pricing and add 'brand power' to make their gadget sell like hotcake with 'unbelievable' price.
In short, I HIGHLY doubt Samsung can sell their 'refurbished' High-end gadget with Chinese price range, as there are little margin profit in Chinese phones market, something that Samsung is 'impossible' to try.
Anonymous, 23 Aug 2016Isn't refurbished phone full of bacteria?
Does Samsung sanitize them properly?
One thing for... moreThey will proabably take it apart completely and drown all parts in some poisonous solvents mix in ultrasonic cleaner anyway.
U will never know it was pulled out of sewer or bloody hands of a dead body on a crime scene ;-)
Well to begin with first, they need to build that premium phone first!!!
Isn't refurbished phone full of bacteria?
Does Samsung sanitize them properly?
One thing for sure I don't want refurbished phone that had been drown in toilet..
I wish more and more OEMs do this.
Seriously, considering the number of smartphones being made, and how fast technology moves, it's scary to think about the environmental cost of our gadget hungry society.
I have been buying refurbished computers for years. But I only buy from the manufacturer with the same warranty as the new one. That's the thing. Hard to trust 3rd party refurbished units if they are not willing to stand behind them.
If Samsung can offer this program with matching warranty as the new one, it might be a good success, and show how confident Samsung is in the quality of their products.
Anonymous, 23 Aug 2016apple devices still receive os updates after 4 years. thats why selling refurbished product is... morei dun think it's about updates...
either way selling refurbished phones has the pros and cons (i can think more cons though) let's just wait and see how they approach (and where) hope for the best :)
Ramouz, 22 Aug 2016Great idea! I love refurbished products and have bought many. Never had an issue, so far :). ... moreRefurbished products should be get 2years warranty, because we don't know will it broken just after one year, so 2years warranty is the minimum consideration.
America keeps winning, can't wait for this manufacturer-refurbished high-end smartphone program to start here.
That's mean people will get cheaper hi-end Samsung for good right?
Should be good new for some people~
apple devices still receive os updates after 4 years. thats why selling refurbished product is not a problem.
but how will samsung do this? samsung flagships never receive os updates after 2 (or 2.5) years.
