Is this a sign of QC fail?
Curious how high is their returned goods rate...
Flagship phone stand for the status. Apple became weak selling on my country because of refurbished. They been tease that there iphone is refurbished even it is brandnew. There is no difference. So a lot of people go for samsung and sony.
But i never buy a flagship phone,so i have a peaceful mind buying a midrange phone because 100% brandnew. Ha ha ha.

it's more likely that freelancers buy the refurbished phones and then sell them to the acquiantances or so... i doubt the carriers would sell refurbished even if they have the chance to do so...
knowing my country, they'll buy those and sell them full price (or a bit lower depending on the looks) so it'll be tough to tell if the price is correct or not... T.T
Samesong, 22 Aug 2016"Refurbished devices"...Ain't nobody got time for dat...Word!
They sell used phones in partnership with a site called Trocafone in Brazil for years now, the phones come with 90 days warranty and they're a pretty good deal, 300 dollars for an excellent almost new Galaxy S6, with no signs of use, that's cheaper than A7 (2016) :)
AnonD-425519, 22 Aug 2016Great idea! I love refurbished products and have bought many. Never had an issue, so far :). ... moreYeah I'm thinking about following suit cos almost all the high-end smartphones are coming out expensive.
Great idea! I love refurbished products and have bought many. Never had an issue, so far :).
Hopefully they thoroughly check the phones for problems before selling, and hopefully they include a 3 month or 1 year warranty.
aaw..and samsung was going great this year...what is preventing them from reurbishing phones and selling them as new ones(i mean the price)?? no,,not acceptable
Refurbished smartphone? How could you know how many times Samsung refurbish for each phone? 1 times? Not really, it should be more than 3 times, because the profits.
Samsung is "behind" apple has been selling "refurbished" phones since 2008.
what year is this? 2013??? :D
btw : don't ever get refurbished android phones. word of advise.
