*Apologies, please note this is the ZE520KL*
There's a bunch of these on Amazon Warehouse, starting from
£85.21 for Used - Acceptable
£89.27 Used - Good
£94.34 Used - Very Good

Has a headphone socket and MicroSD slot (getting rarer these days!). Not sure I'd go for Used-Acceptable, but you may be lucky. Don't know if the UK is different, but it seems to be Dual-SIM in reviews (hybrid SIM tray slot where you can put in a MicroSD card or additional SIM).

It has a glass back, which may drive some people mad! Though I always put my phones in a case, anyway.

3007607.jpgReview: digitalcitizen.life/rev…ips

Youtube review:
Seems this has had an Oreo update, if this Camera Review is anything to go by
(from the digitalcitizen review above, "main rear camera..uses a 16 megapixel Sony IMX298 image sensor. The optical part of the camera is based on a set of six-element Largan lens and offers a large f/2.0 aperture...The main camera also benefits from Optical Image Stabilization (both hardware and software) and by laser auto-focus tech that’s very fast at its job. For low light conditions, there’s also a Dual LED flash close by.")

Front camera is a "8 megapixel camera with an f/2.0 aperture".
As for video, "..able to record 4K videos at a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and 30 frames per second. However, when recording 4K videos, the image stabilization is automatically disabled so you’ll have to do without."
It can also do time-lapse and slow motion videos.

Woops, I typed 4GB/64GB in the title, rather than 4GB/32GB, trying to do 100 things at once. Sorry. I can't add more but they'll probably be gone by the time I come back.

I'm going by the gsmarena listing - Amazon's descriptions are notoriously flakey.

Maybe it is, then...Amazon de lists it as (ZE520KL) - damn you Amazon and your unhelpful listings!34644529-dptyh.jpgSorry guys, amended the above with the correct gsmarena listing.

At least you can Cancel via Live Chat if you don't want this version!

I do like the capacitive buttons on this phone - buttons taking up screen "real estate" drive me mad. I'll try to find reviews.

Edit: Though, the digitalcitizen review suggests the capacitive buttons don't light up (wut! shades of my ZTE Axon 7). It really annoys some people, but I got used to mine.

*Translation of the above Amazon de blurb:

Inspired by the beauty of nature
The ZenFone 3 redefines design, style and build quality. Made of scratch-resistant gorilla glass on the front and back and made entirely of high-strength aluminum that has been refined with the Zen-like circular pattern.

Bright colors, sharp details
The ZenFone 3 is available with 5.2-inch (ZE520KL) Full HD Super IPS + display. The display is particularly bright, bright and bright colors. No matter if inside or outside, rain or sun - all contents are stable and sharply focused. And thanks to its narrow edge, the display looks even bigger and even more impressive.

State-of-the-art camera technology
Only with the right combination of software and camera technology can photo and video recordings reach an incomparable quality. With the ZenFone 3, PixelMaster 3.0 technology combined with advanced sensor and lens technology, optical and electronic image stabilizers, TriTech autofocus system, bi-color flash and plenty of convenient capture modes ensure you capture the unforgettable.

10 times faster than blinking
Three different autofocus systems are combined in the ZenFone 3 with TriTech technology, specifically for different application and ambient lighting scenarios: laser autofocus, phase autofocus and continuous autofocus. Whether it's dusk or midday sun, and whether you want to capture a quiet or moving subject, the ZenFone 3 will set your favorite subject in just 0.03 seconds.

Clear and shake-free photos and videos
When photographing is hardly anything annoying than shaky photos and videos. That's why two technologies, optical (OIS) and electronic (EIS) image stabilization, automatically take care of blur-free, beautifully crisp photo and video footage.

battery a bit rubbish.. but otherwise good for the price
dam, tempting . .
The 2600 mAh battery (when new) is the only thing that has stopped me from buying this in the past
Wish me luck. Just bought this with (hopefully) not too many "slight scratches on back" and damaged original packaging. Thanks to OP.

I was too busy replying to someone on Skype to catch mine!
My wife has this phone. It's running the Oreo. Optically stabilized camera is decent. She is a light user and battery easily lasts her a day even if my son plays his games on it for an hour or so. It's really well made. Steal for the money.

I buy from Amazon Warehouse a lot. Haven't bought many Used - Acceptables but generally not great. Used - Good, Very Good, Like New tend to be decent. But there's always a bit of a gamble.

I joke that they must let Stevie Wonder do the Warehouse grading - but this is the voice of bitter experience. Had some amazing buys from there and some real shockers!

As mentioned, sometimes the grading description can just be a work of fiction, they're often not that accurate. If you're prepared to roll the dice and see what arrives and not desperate for a phone RIGHT NOW, then it's worth a go. I just bought mum a Used - Very Good Xperia X - received yesterday* - box was a state, but the Adapter/cable were unused and still in factory packaging, phone was pristine.

*Edit: Looked up the Xperia X's grading description - "Condition: Used - Very Good - Item is in original packaging, but packaging has damage. Accessories may have cosmetic damage."

The accessories were perfect. The box was a tangle of sellotape (I'm an expert at removing sellotape and stickers after so many Warehouse purchases, haha, so that didn't faze me).

Can you get free returns on the phones do you know?

I'm a Prime member, which has free returns, so don't know how it works for Non-Prime. Best ask on Live Chat. But Amazon have been absolutely fantastic when I've had issues, even with Warehouse purchases.

I honestly don't know what the criteria is for Warehouse grading, you think they'd at least switch it on! Sorry to hear that. Was the grading accurate otherwise - eg scratches etc?

If I was you, I'd get on Live Chat and ask them to arrange a replacement for the same price (even though it's went up a few quid), that's if you're willing to take another chance. Either way I'm sure they will sort you out.

Sorry about all the bother, though, Amazon Warehouse can be a headache sometimes.
